Family Pest Control uses Aprehend® to kill and prevent bed bug infestations because it is a solution, formulated from a fungal disease, that only affects insects. Humans and their pets are unaffected! With a 24-hour germination period, the disease eradicates entire populations of bed bugs, as it's highly contagious to the bugs.
At Plunkett's Pest Control we use highly effective conventional or bed bug heat treatments to eliminate bed bug problems. You should never use bug bombs or foggers on bed bugs; they will have little effect and cause the bed bugs to move around your space even more. Even after treatment by a professional, in some cases infested mattresses or pieces of furniture may need to be discarded. If you're unsure, ask your pest control technician.

It is difficult to identify bed bugs just from their bite. In fact it is hard to recognise a bed bug bite from any other insect bite. You should look at the overall pattern and timing of bites and other common bed bug signs to confirm if you have a problem.. The good news is that bed bugs have not been shown to transmit any disease and their bites do not hurt.

When a bed bug bites you they will insert a saliva which keeps your blood from clotting. This process allows the bed bug to fill up on your blood while biting you. Many times people do not have reactions to bed bug bites and may only have some white or small red bumps.
As an alternative or an addition to bed bug control using chemicals, bed bug steamers and heaters have become an increasingly important tool in the pest control industry. Use steamers and heaters where chemical sensitivity is a concern, such as hospitals and nursing homes.
