If Bed Bugs are your problem…

Once thought to be a pest of the past, bed bugs have reemerged as a serious concern all over the United States.  Experts believe the recent increase in bed bugs in the United States may be due to more travel, lack of knowledge about preventing infestations, and increased resistance of bed bugs to pesticides.  It is very unlikely, though not impossible, that a bed bug infestation will develop in an office, classroom, or other non-residential environment, such as a department store. However, these sites can serve as transfer hubs for bed bugs to hitchhike a ride into your home. Management, staff, students and workers all have roles to play in reducing the spread of bed bugs.  They can cause public health issues, so it’s important to pay close attention to preventing and controlling them.  Bed bugs do not discriminate and an infestation is no reflection on the homeowner.

Rid-All Pest Control is your Solution!

The first step in getting rid of bed bugs is properly identifying them. Our highly trained technician will inspect your property to positively identify the bed bugs. If bed bug activity is detected, we’ll recommend the solution best suited for your home or business to get rid of them.

Our treatment involves locating the source of the infestation and strategically placing materials to eliminate that activity. This will typically include two applications of a combination of liquids, aerosols, and steam. We use steam to reduce active bed bug populations in items such as mattresses, draperies and furniture.  Thorough follow-up inspections are also performed to ensure we have reached the entire bed bug population.

We strongly recommend protecting your mattress and box springs from becoming infested (or re-infested). If bed bugs are present, an encasement will provide a barrier that bed bugs cannot penetrate. They also make future inspections easier by removing access to one of their favorite harborage areas. If you have to choose between encasing your mattress or your box spring, we recommend encasing your box spring to protect against bed bug infestations.
