Bed Bugs Are a Booming Business

                Bed bug location graph

Bed bug infestations are on the rise!  In the past 3-5 years we have seen a huge rise in the number of pest professionals that offer bed bug treatments.  99.6% of pest professionals have treated bed bugs in the past year.  The top 3 places that we see infestation occur (not including homes and apartments) are hotels/motels, college dorms, and nursing homes. Bed bugs are seemingly everywhere and are also commonly found in offices, schools and daycare centers, hospitals, public transportation, theaters and more.  In addition to these environments, pest professionals also have reported treating bed bugs in very unusual places, such as a vent above a bathtub, dance clubs, 911 call centers, and on boats.  While more and more pest professionals are being called to treat bed bugs, they still remain one of the most challenging pests to exterminate for many professionals that rely on traditional extermination methods. 

So why are bed bugs so hard to treat, you ask?  Bed bugs are extremely hearty insects and are experts at hiding and “hitching rides” on unsuspecting people.  Over the past 10 years scientists have been studying bed bugs and their ability to evolve resistances to many of the traditional chemical extermination methods.  With each passing year bed bugs become more and more resistant to chemical treatments, often leaving pest professionals and the victims of bed bug attacks with repeat infestations and months of treatment efforts.  But it doesn’t have to be this way…

Studies have proven that bed bugs are extremely vulnerable to high temperatures.  This has led MANY pest professionals to turn to heat treatments to kill bed bugs. Heat is one of the only ways to kill all the bugs hidden inside a structure without causing damage or requiring months of repeat treatments.  Young bed bugs, also called nymphs, and bed bug eggs are often hidden inside furniture, walls and under carpeting where traditional chemical extermination efforts can’t reach them.  This is one of the leading causes for re-occurring infestations.  While bed bugs may be a daunting task for some pest professionals, with the right training and equipment you call kill ALL the bed bugs, even those tiny eggs and protected nymphs with just ONE treatment.
