In addition to heat remediation treatments for bed bugs, Patriot Pest Solutions offers conventional, chemical treatment options for bed bugs. Our treatment strategy focuses on effectively penetrating all phases of the bed bug life cycle to efficiently eradicate bed bug infestations.
What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
How do you know if you have bed bugs? Only a certified pest control professional can determine the full extent of your bed bug infestation, but there are common signs that indicate a bed bug presence. Finding live, adult bed bugs, bed bug bites, blood spots on sheets or bed bug castings or droppings are signs of pest activity.
Adult Bed Bugs
Finding live bed bugs is a sure sign that there are more in your home.
Bed Bug Bites
Clusters or rows of red, irritated bite sites. Commonly found on the back, insides of the arms, back of the legs and feet.
Blood On Sheets
Small blood stains on your mattress or sheets.
Castings / Droppings
Droppings, shed casings, shed skins and live bed bugs in the creases of furniture.
Bed Bug Inspection
Bed bugs can hide in cracks the thickness of a credit card! Proper inspection is key to conventional chemical treatments. Bed bugs are typically found close to where you sleep, hiding in your baseboards, bed frame, box spring, cabinets, furniture, head board, mattress, night stands, picture frames – even behind electrical plate covers! All of our certified, state-licensed technicians have been trained in bed bug detection by our in-house Associate Certified Entomologist, one of twelve in the entire state of Pennsylvania. If you’ve got bed bugs, we’ll find them.
Bed Bug Dog Inspection
Bed bug dogs can quickly pinpoint exact where bed bugs are present. Studies by the University of Florida in August 2008 showed dogs trained to locate live bugs had an overall accuracy of 97%. After alerting to an area, our technicians will visually inspect to verify their findings.
Bed Bug Treatment Process
Our conventional bed bug treatment program consists of two separate visits ten to fourteen days apart.
On our first visit, live adult bed bugs will be removed with a vacuum. Soft furniture that cannot be chemically treated will be steamed. After steam treatment, encasements will cover all affected furniture. Pesticides in the form of liquids and dusts are applied to the cracks and crevices within the affected rooms in the home. In rooms with high levels of bed bug activity, your technician will treat the bed frame, bureaus, nightstands and all other bed bug harborages. Dusts will be injected into cracks, wall voids, electrical outlets, and phone jacks. Bed bug monitoring devices will be placed within the affected rooms to determine the level of bed bug activity.
On our second visit, your technician will inspect the affected rooms and all bed bug monitoring devices to determine the level of bed bug activity. Affected rooms that still see bed bug activity will be re-treated in a manner similar to the first treatment. Depending on the severity of your infestation, additional visits may be neccessary.
Why Choose Conventional Bed Bug Treatments?
- No preparation required by you prior to service
- Two part treatment protocol
- Safe for children and pets
What Is Used During Treatment?
- Encasements – Used to stop the bed bug feeding cycle – bed bugs that don’t eat, don’t reproduce. Our encasements are used to seal off furniture and bedding materials, preventing bed bugs from entering or escaping.
- Chemical Treatments – Available in the form of liquids, dusts and aersols, these chemicals offer quick knockdown and residual protection against bed bugs.
- Steam Applications – Used to eliminate bed bugs where traditional treatments for bed bugs cannot like fabrics and bedding materials.
- Monitoring Devices – Help to determine the level of bed bug activity after treatment.
