Bed Bug Control

Bed Bug Basics


Step 1:  Cleaning


Eliminate all clutter in the room. Throw out unwanted possessions or isolate them for up to 6 months.  For possessions that can not be put in the dryer, we recommend using Nuvan Strips.  


Step 2:  Inspection 


....Jump to: Bed Bug Inspection Tips


Step 3: Treatment


Treatment is the most crucial part of eliminating your bed bug infestation.  Most bed bugs will be on or near the bed, but you must treat the entire room with a mixture of residual insecticides, aerosols and dusts to eliminate the infestation. Examples of these areas are night stands, dressers, base boards, door frames and decorative wall items. We have multiple kits with everything you need to help eliminate your infestation.   Click here for farther detail on how to treat for bed bugs.  




Step 4:  Prevention and Monitoring


The most effective way to reduce the chance of having a bed bug infestation is prevention and monitoring. 



Pro Tip: You can simplify the job of treating the mattress by installing mattress encasements and box spring encasements. Without encasements you will have to treat your mattress using a product such as Cimexa dust, Steri-Fab, or Bedlam Plus. With or without mattress encasements you will still need to treat the bed frame.

  • Remove items from the floor. Dismantle bed frames and remove drawers from desk and dressers.
  • If you are not using bed bug certified mattress encasements, inspect mattress and box springs for any tears where the bed bugs may be hiding.
  • Fill cracks around baseboards and moldings to further reduce hiding places for bed bugs .
  • Infested garments need to be laundered in hot water (120°F minimum). If washing is not available, sometimes heating the garments or bed linen for several minutes in a clothes dryer may work.

 Inspection Check List:

  • Cracks and crevices in head and foot boards, attached side railings and supports
  • Inspect mattresses top, sides and bottom. Check all buttons, seams and rips.
  • Inspect electrical switch plates, pictures on walls, wall posters
  • Inspect cracks in plaster or seams in wall paper.
