Other Things To Never Overlook Before And After Treatment

Scheduling a monthly inspection is the first step to successful bed bug treatment. Bed Bugs are growing nationwide at an alarming rate. Their tiny size allows them to hitchhike their way into any establishment, including hotels, hospitals, colleges, apartments, etc. With the increase of bed bugs comes terrible publicity for those who unknowingly provide them with a place to infest. Contact a professional company like Facility Pest Control to inspect your infected room. Our experienced team will work with you to detect bed bugs as soon as they emerge and implement a treatment plan that will eliminate the problem quickly with minimal disruption.

Bed Bug Treatment Preparation Instructions - FAQs

How do I check for bed bugs in my clothes?

Examine the fabric of your clothes in your closet or laundry room for signs of bed bugs. If you suspect a severe infestation, cover the floor with a white sheet. Then shake clothes out of baskets or the closet over the sheet. Examine the sheet for signs of bed bugs, excrement, or eggs. We at Facility Pest Control can assist you in detecting and controlling bed bugs.

The short answer is that if you had a professional treatment and it has been three weeks since the end of the treatment with no signs of continuing infestation (i.e., bites, live bugs, new fecal matter, or cast skins), your bed bug infestation is likely to be controlled. The problem is that the true answer may be more complicated than this because of a number of complicating factors such as:

Your home may become too hot and uncomfortable within hours of heat treatment. As a general rule, you can vacuum as soon as you are permitted to clean your home by professionals. Spray treatments may require three to four hours before returning home.

A bed bug is unlikely to travel on you or the clothes you are wearing. You move too quickly to be a good hiding spot. Luggage, backpacks, briefcases, mattresses, and used furniture are more likely to carry bed bugs.
