Our exterminators are trained to detect and identify bed bugs. They are also trained to diagnose and rate bed bug infestations on a scale of mild to moderate to severe. When the client agrees to hire our company, this initiates the pest control process. Our bed bug inspection process always begins in the bedroom, or wherever the host sleeps. It is no big secret that these parasites do not stray too far away from their hosts. If the host sleeps in a bedroom during the day, bed bugs will hide in the bedroom and emerge from hiding during the day to feed. This is why the bed bug inspection is always initiated in the bedroom. Unfortunately, bed bug hiding places are extremely difficult to find. Since the insect does not build nests for its young, there is no evidence to utilize for the search. If the home is infested, the signs – dried bloodstains, exoskeletons (dead bed bug skin), fecal droppings, and live translucent eggs and larvae – will be present in the bedroom. If our exterminators cannot locate the insect’s hiding place, we turn to the experts. Who are the bed bug experts? Our four-legged bed bug sniffing friends. Our canines are trained to detect bed bugs in hiding places, such as cracks and crevices in bed frames, décor, mattress, box springs, pillows, and bed linen. To fully eradicate a bed bug infestation, it is crucial to locate all hiding places. It is perfectly okay to conduct a do-it-yourself bed bug inspection before reaching out to our licensed exterminators. If signs of bed bugs are detected during the visual inspection, we suggest a second, but professional bed bug inspection conducted by our exterminators. The data collected during the inspection will be utilized to devise a professional pest control treatment strategy. Be sure to take advantage of our free inspection, consultation, and estimate today.
