You've Got Bugs, We've Got Answers

According to the news, bed bugs are everywhere. Click onto a news website, watch TV or pick up a newspaper and you're likely to see or hear a message delivered in tones that are create fear: Bed bugs are back! They're everywhere! What can we do?

The funny thing is, for several decades when parents would put the kids to bed, they would say things like "Sleep tight, and don't let the bed bugs bite."

Aside from entomologists and pest professionals, very few people knew what bed bugs were, or if they even existed.

Today we all know. These appleseed-sized, blood-sucking insects have come roaring back, and people are worried-frightened even.

Bed Bugs (Cimex Lectularius) largely disappeared from developed parts of the world in the 1940s, mostly because pesticides knocked them out. Since then, two things happened: Bed Bugs, over time, acquired a resistance to pesticides, and international travel made it possible for bed bugs to hitchhike from parts of the world where they had not been eradicated to here in America.

Bed Bugs are excellent hitchhikers, too. Not only can they travel around the world, but they're very good at moving from pace to place - from a hotel room to your bedroom, or from that furniture you picked up at a garage sale to the rest of your house.

Once bedbugs get inside your home, they begin multiplying; one female bed bug will lay one to five eggs a day, or an average of 120 eggs in its life. Upon hatching, those juvenile bugs will reach adulthood in three weeks, seeking out blood meals - from you and your family. While you're sleeping, by zeroing in on the carbon dioxide you exhale, and laying eggs, lots of them.

Even without doing the math, its easy to see how this can turn into a big problem very quickly.

The Pest Rangers offer several Bed Bug Treatments.

Heat Remediation

You've heard the old saying "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen"?

Bed Bugs can't stand the heat - specifically once it rises above 120º F. Our technicians will bring industrial powered heaters that will raise the temperature, room by room, enough to kill bed bugs and their eggs.

Before we bring the heat, we'll make sure that everything that needs to be exposed to heat is opened up or positioned properly so that treatment will be most effective, turning a room upside down to ensure the heat goes where it needs to go.

Our strategically placed heating units will be monitored continuously to make sure the room is hot enough to finish the job. We'll have someone on-site to make sure the job is performed correctly. After we complete the service, we can provide documentation that will show exactly what actions we took.

Conventional Pest Control

Sometimes the most effective bed bug control can be achieved using specially selected materials that will have a residual, or longer-lasting, effect. These products may come in the form or applied liquids or dusts, and will be judiciously employed with you and your family kept foremost in mind.

Any of these treatment options can be used independently, or in combination with any other treatments.

Remember that bed bug treatment is a partnership between you and your pest control provider.
