BED BUGS -TREATMENT & REMOVAL
Serving Beaver, Butler, Lawrence and Northern Allegheny Counties, Boo’s Bugs Stoppers specializes in the control and removal of crawling insects – especially bed bugs. It’s no longer a secret that bed bugs have made their way back into the United States and are now a common problem for homeowners. In order for bed bugs to infest in a home or building they must be transported. This means that bed bugs are brought into the home by people, whether it be on luggage or clothing. Bed bugs can also enter the home on infested secondhand furniture, clothing, or electronics. This is why bed bug infestations have become commonplace in public areas such as hotels, airplanes, buses, movie theaters, and schools.
While full-grown mature bed bugs are about 1/8 of an inch long, they are also paper thin. This body feature allows a bed bug to hide almost undetectable to the common person in any little crack or crevice. Bed bugs can hide in mattresses, box springs, bedside furniture, electronics, cracks and crevices in flooring, baseboards, wall pictures, electrical outlets, light switches, closets, and that’s just if they’re concealed in a common bedroom.
Bed bug control can be accomplished in one of two ways. Both treatments require a great deal of customer cooperation. The first type of bed bug control treatment is a chemical treatment. This consists of a series of thorough treatments to an infested area. When customers fully participate in preparation for each treatment, we can usually restrict the process to three treatments. Boo’s Bug Stoppers offers these chemical bed bug control treatments on a case-by-case basis, and prices may vary.
When chemical bed bug control treatments are not desired by a homeowner, or a chemical treatment is not cost-effective option, a heat treatment can be performed. Typically bed bug control heat treatments are a one-time, chemical-free treatment that can guarantee bed bug elimination from a home as long as they’re not reintroduced by humans after the treatment is complete.
Keep in mind that everyone has a different reaction to bed bug bites. Some bites can show up as small red bumps with mild itchiness to large sore welts/blotchiness. For more information on bed bugs and how to prevent them see our blogs.
Take comfort in knowing that bed bugs do not transmit any type of disease to the human population.
