How do you get rid of Bed Bugs?
BED BUGS can enter your home by attaching themselves to furniture, clothing, and luggage. They can also travel along connected wiring and pipes. Unfortunately we have seen a huge resurgence of these disagreeable pests and at BEST PEST CONTROL we are ready to take these critters on.
For bedbugs we offer a chemical treatment to remove them from the house. This can be used for both commercial as well as residential properties. The first step is going to be to determine the size of the infestation. We normally start by putting you in contact with a company that uses specially trained service dogs who will walk through the property and trigger on any room containing bedbugs. Once we know how many rooms are infected we can recommend either a single, multi room, or whole house treatment.
Sometimes it is obvious to the naked eye that a customer does have a bedbug issue however this is not always true. In that case we use an independent BED BUG Dog INSPECTION COMPANY to confirm if you do indeed have a bedbug issue.One company we have used for years is TOP DOG SCENT DETECTION which trustworthy and reliable.
So now you know, you have bed bugs! What next?! Since bed bug infestations require the use of pesticides give us a call.
Here at BEST PEST CONTROL we use the LEAST TOXIC registered and certified pesticide to tackle your bedbug issue. We want to eliminate not only the adult bedbug but the immature bedbugs that are hatching from the eggs. All bedbug services come with a guarantee but pesticides do have a residual life and that means the product only lasts for a certain period of time after the initial service.
There is quite a bit of preparation for the customer and here are the checklists to follow
- Room Prep
- Cleaning and Laundry Prep
- We offer bedbug mattress and box spring encasements (prices vary according to size)
We offer single room treatments as well as a full house treatment tailored to your particular needs.
Here at Best Pest Control we also use an independent dog bedbug inspection company which is an excellent way to confirm if you do have a bedbug infestation. We have found that some pest control companies have their own bedbug dogs which leads, in our opinion, to a conflict, since it’s in that companies best interest to find bedbugs.

Impact Of Pests On The Home
Although bedbugs do not spread disease they are a horrific nuisance and can spread like wildfire. Just knowing these critters are crawling over you while you sleep is a nightmare. Bedbug bites are painless at first but later turn into itchy welts.
Health Risks Of Pests
Bed bugs feed on your blood as a source of nutrition. The blood is necessary for them to advance through each stage of their life as well as to produce eggs. Those who are bitten tend to have reactions within 24 hours, including unsightly red bite marks, rash, swelling and welts around the bite area. These bites can occur all over the body, particularly on the torso, the groin and around the face (around the mouth, eyes and ears) and scalp – often in vascular areas where blood supply is heavier or close to the skin. In some cases, a severe reaction can occur leaving skin swollen, extremely agitated, itchy with large raised unsightly welts.
