Bed bugs range in size from1/4 to 5/8 inch. They are flat, oval, and reddish brown. They hide in cracks and crevices of a room including furniture, molding, outlets, and carpet edges. They generally stay as close to the host as possible. They have piercing mouthparts to draw blood for food. Bed bug females lay about 200 eggs which hatch in about 1 to 2 weeks. Newborn bed bugs will be ready to lay their own eggs in 4 to 8 weeks.
The most common first sign is Bed bug bites These bites will leave rashes of different sizes and be itchy. Most doctors can not identify it. If you feel you get bites after waking up in the morning, it is most likely a bed bug bite.

We have the most aggressive approach in the industry using many methods to treat bed bugs. Please call us now to set an appointment for a free estimate. Let us properly identify your problem and show you our special program for eliminating your problem.
Traditional treatment is used when the infestation is light. We use a combination of inspection, vacuuming, mattress and box spring encasements, monitors, and different pesticides. This treatment is very safe especially for kids and pets. After your initial service we automatically follow up in two weeks for a checkup and every two weeks thereafter if necessary until infestation is 100% eliminated.
Heat treatment is generally reserved for moderate to heavy infestations. It is also the “greenest” approach because pesticides are not used. Your home or apartment is heated up to 135 degrees to eliminate all stages of bed bugs from egg to adult. This is a full day process and requires you to be out of your home for up to 10 hours. We follow up within a few days to perform a canine inspection to make sure the infestation is eliminated. If our canine detects any activity, we will perform another heat treatment at no charge. Elimination is guaranteed.
Canine inspections are available for homes businesses hotels apartment buildings etc. Our canines are have the finest training and are well kept by certified trainers.
