Superior Treatments For Bed Bugs In New Jersey
Tiny, parasitic insects, you might call bed bugs the “vampires” of the insect world. Like fictional vampires, bed bugs rely on the blood of humans and animals to survive. While research is still being conducted on whether or not bed bugs have the ability to spread disease, one thing is for sure- bed bugs bite and they can cause property owners to lose sleep. If you’ve woken up to bed bug bites or have noticed other signs of bed bugs in your home or business, Superior Pest Solutions is the New Jersey pest control company to call! Servicing single-family dwellings, apartment complexes, hotels, and other commercial facilities, Superior provides comprehensive bed bug control services in Atlantic, Cumberland, Cape May, and Gloucester counties.
How We Get Rid Of Bed Bugs
For maximum results, Superior Pest Solution uses a combination of organic products and heat to eradicate bed bug activity.
The Superior Process:
Step One: Bed Bug Inspection
At Superior Pest Solutions, our bed bug control service starts with a thorough inspection. Because bed bugs often hide in mattresses and box springs, behind baseboards, in floor cracks, and other areas where visual inspections won’t work, Superior will use a trained K-9 inspector to determine if your property has a bed bug problem. Our bed bug dog, Emmie has a superior sense of smell and has completed the same rigorous training as cadaver, bomb and drug-sniffing dogs in order to accurately pinpoint bed bug infestations. If Emmie confirms the presence of bed bugs, Superior will explain the findings and provide a quote for treatment.
Step Two: Bed Bug Preparation
In order for the treatment to be effective, there is a degree of preparation required. Superior will provide a bed bug heat treatment preparation handout that explains what items must be removed from the premises and what other tasks must be completed prior to and possibly on treatment day.
Step Three: Bed Bug Treatment
On the day of your appointment, a technician well-versed in bed bug control will treat baseboards, molding, cracks, and crevices with an application of EPA registered materials and Diatomeceous Earth, a natural powder that eliminates these biting insects by absorbing the oily protective coating on bed bug exoskeletons.
Then we’ll heat the structure to kill all stages of bed bugs. Research has shown that all bed bug life stages (adults, nymphs, and eggs) die within minutes at a temperature of 122°F. During the thermal remediation process, temperatures in your home will be from 120ºF and 140°F in order to eliminate bed bugs living in or throughout walls, floors, furniture, and other unreachable areas.
A typical bed bug heat treatment takes several hours but occupants will be able to return the same day. Once the Customers receiving bed bug heat treatments must remain out of their home for a period of six hours.
Step Four: Follow Up Inspection
To ensure we’ve completely eliminated the bed bug problem from your home, our bed bug dog and handler will return about 10-14 days after the bed bug heat treatment, to re-inspect the area. We rely on Emmie’s amazing ability to detect bed bugs! If Emmie gives us the alert, then Superior Pest Control will return and re-treat infested areas and repeat the process until the bed bug infestation has been completely eradicated. If Emmie lets us know there are no more bed bugs or eggs remaining, we may recommend a bed bug prevention plan to ensure your home remains bed bug free in the future.
