How to Identify a Bed Bug Infestation
Since bed bugs are small and often nocturnal, it can be very difficult
to identify them without the assistance of a professional. Contrary to
what their name indicates bed bugs are not always found only in box springs,
mattresses, and headboards. They can also be found in wallpaper, curtains,
picture frames, electrical switch plates, furniture, and more.
If you notice any of the following signs, you need to schedule bed bug
control right away:
- Small, brownish-red bugs that are approximately the size of an apple seed
- Bites on your body that resemble a pimple, a mosquito bite, or a welt
- Red stains on your sheets
- A musty odor in your home or business that you can’t get rid of
- Tiny shells

Why Heat Treatments Are So Effective
Traditional bed bug treatments only use pesticides which is quite ineffective
and often results in the recurrence of an infestation. Bed bugs have the
ability to produce offspring that are resistant to pesticides. In addition,
bed bugs are experts at hiding, so those who are not able to resist pesticides
are able to hide in nooks and crannies that protect them against these
products. This is why our team has adopted the use of heat treatments.
Even when they hide away in crevices and gaps, bed bugs cannot escape or
survive the heat that radiates into every part of a home or business during treatment.
Heat treatments are the only way to eliminate 100% of bed bugs and their
eggs, so you can rest easy knowing your home or business is truly protected. Heat
treatments are all-natural processes that eliminate bed bugs in hours,
do not require tenting, and do not damage your clothing or furniture.
