Bed Bugs Program
Bed Bug Treatment Services
Bed bug infestations will not go away on their own. Once these blood sucking pests make it into your home, they hide in beds, couches and other furniture so they can feed on you while you’re asleep…leaving red marks and itchy bumps on your skin. Bed bugs are resilient as they can survive up to six months without eating a blood meal and can withstand temperatures from near freezing to over 120 degrees Fahrenheit. They multiply at an astonishing rate, laying up to five eggs daily. If you notice signs of bed bugs, you need to call a bed bug exterminator immediately!
Our Bed Bug Treatments
To resolve your bed bug infestation, we typically apply two treatments to the affected areas in your home. The first consists of residual products that are designed to kill bed bugs on contact while the second product is an insect growth regulator that prevents adults from reproducing. All of our products are EPA approved, so you can rest easy knowing that we will always leave your home safer than we found it. Treatments will vary depending on the size of your infestation and how many rooms you have that are infested, but most cases consist of one initial treatment and two follow-up treatments every 15 days. These follow up treatment schedules make sure we get rid of the bed bug infestation.
We Also Offer Steam Treatments for Bed Bugs
Simple Pest Management is one of the few bed bug exterminators in San Diego county offering cutting-edge, steam treatment solutions. The steam treatment ensures that the pests and their eggs are taken care of, regardless of where they are hiding. If you have had recurring issues with bed bugs in your home, it could be because some of them have developed a resistance to chemical treatments. Steam treatment works by bringing the affected area to a lethal temperature that bed bugs won’t be able survive.
Unlike traditional bed bug treatments, steam solutions are chemical-free and do not require direct contact with the pests. The exterminator just needs to apply the steam and heat to the infested areas and let the lethal temperatures do the rest!
Please keep in mind that steamers for clothes or carpets do not work, so don’t try this yourself! Bringing the area to the right temperature is key, as too low of a temperature won’t kill the bed bugs, and too high of a temperature will cause damage to surfaces and furniture. Steam treatments should always be done by a professional — contact Simple Pest Management to schedule a free consultation!
How to prepare for your treatment
Preparation is extremely essential for the most effective bed bug treatment. Here is what you should do to prepare your living space for our bed bug exterminator:
The heat of your dryer can kill any bed bugs or eggs that have found their way into your clothes. Run your clothes in the dryer for at least 45 minutes and either leave them in the dryer or secure them in sealed bags until our treatment is complete.
Remove all of your sheets and bedding (wash and dry them), and lean your mattress and box spring against one wall.
All items in your closet, dresser, nightstand, etc. should be removed and placed into plastic bags.
These plastic bags should be stored somewhere away from your living areas so that they don’t get in the way during treatment.
Following these preparation steps will allow our bed bug exterminator to effectively treat your infestation.
