Bed Bug Fumigation

Fumigation is an all-encompassing treatment option used to get rid of bed bugs. The benefit to fumigation is that it will also remove every other insect infestation, including termites.

How Does Fumigation Work

After a home or structure is fully sealed and tented, Vikane gas is pumped into the tented area for about 24-48 hours. Vikane replaces the oxygen in this environment and works by suffocating the pests inside the walls and other tough to reach areas. Fumigation works best because of it’s ability to reach areas within the structure pesticide applications cannot. Insect eggs are incapable of survival in this environment as well, so this treatment will remove all pests no matter where they are in their lifecycle.

Once the fumigation is complete, our technicians will remove the tent and allow fresh air to flow through the structure for a few hours. At this time, they will also complete a thorough inspection before occupants are allowed to return home. Fumigations have a warranty of 3 years after service.

Heat Treatment

Heat is a relatively new option when it comes to treating bed bug infestations. All bugs, including bed bugs have a thermal death point. Using specialized equipment, we bring the temperature in your home or business up to 120 degrees for a couple of hours. During this time, the heat will penetrate spaces traditional pesticides can’t reach. This temperature is hot enough to kill all the bugs in the house and their eggs without damaging your electronics or furniture. These treatments typically take between 4-6 hours including set-up and takedown. We will give you a detailed customer checklist to prepare before this service.

Local Bed Bug Treatment

Local treatment is recommended if bed bugs have been detected early enough that the infestation is still small, or if heat or fumigation is not practical for the space being treated. This treatment option is also ideal for customers working with a smaller budget. Local treatments typically take between 3 - 6 appointments, spaced out weekly. For the best results, customers should adhere to the prep checklist prior to and during the service period.
