Bed Bug Treatments
Bed bug treatments are not all the same! Southland Pest Control offers full scale fumigation, heat treatments for the chemically sensitive and traditional pesticide treatments depending on the severity of your infestation.
After the initial inspection of your property, our technicians will use specially designed equipment to seal off your property and apply a dry heat evenly throughout the structure. This chemical free treatment will cook the bedbugs where they stand since the heat will permeate wall cavities and other spaces not reachable by traditional chemical application. The temperature during treatment is between 120-140° which is lethal for bed bugs.
The initial inspection with our certified bedbug dogs will point out all areas infested by bedbugs. Our technician will then apply a low-impact chemical treatment to all of the affected areas. Unlike heat treatments and fumigation, you will not need to leave your home for more than a couple of hours during the day of service.
Fumigation is one of the most effective ways to fully eradicate bed bugs. This process, also known as tenting, is when secured tarps cover your home for three days and Vikane gas fumigant is introduced into the structure. This method is used because of its ability to penetrate the structure, reaching bedbugs and other pests where traditional pesticides cannot. Vikane rapidly penetrates through wood members of the home to kill bed bugs through suffocation. After fumigation, Vikane leaves no residues, a common worry with fumigants.
