Before we can get rid of your bed bugs, we first need to identify the severity of the infestation. We do this by coming to your home and conducting a thorough inspection. Bed bugs make their nests in parts of the home that give them easy access to humans and pets. Mattresses are just one possibility. They frequently make their nests in sofas, flooring, walls, cupboards and even computers!
The inspection will lead us from the traces bed bugs leave behind, to their nests. And once we know where they’re hiding, we’ll create the most effective extermination plan for your home.
Before we arrive for your first treatment, it’s important to take steps to prevent the spread of bed bugs to other people. The most important thing you can do is to wash and dry all clothing and other textiles (curtains, rugs, towels, backpacks, etc.) in temperatures hotter than 122°F for a minimum of 20 minutes. Then seal everything inside garbage bags to prevent any living bugs from getting in. When you contact us, we’ll give you full instructions on how to prepare for the treatment.
Like many pest infestations, bed bugs typically require several treatments to guarantee success. With very tough eggs and a gestation period of around 10 days, it’s always necessary to return for a second treatment. We typically wait around 21 days, so that any remaining eggs can hatch and we can get them on the second round. For especially bad infestations, we may have to return for subsequent treatments, but we’ll decide this on a case by case basis.
Bed bugs are hard to spot if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Our experts will explain everything you need to know to be on the alert.
The cost of an exterminator varies depending on the severity of the infestation and the size of the home or apartment that will be treated. Because these factors can differ drastically in each case (treating a studio apartment will cost less than treating a multi-story home), full treatment can range anywhere from $500-$3500.
When it comes to pest control, early detection is key. Bed bugs reproduce rapidly, and ignoring the issue will only make it worse. At the first sign of an infestation, take action immediately, and speak with one of our experts at Advanced Pest Control.
