Safe, effective bed bug treatment from Terminix

Reports of bed bug cases are on the rise, but you can stop these persistent, itchy pests with a custom bed bug treatment from Terminix. Terminix freezes away bed bugs using the proprietary RapidFreeze¨ Solution, a carbon dioxide-based product that kills 100% of bed bugs and their eggs on contact. The bed bug treatment is safe and there’s no need to remove clothes, linens or electronics. Your Terminix specialist may also recommend a steam solution, a high-heat treatment that’s just as effective as freezing. But no matter which bed bug removal service you receive, you can be sure it’s safe and effective – or it wouldn’t be backed by the Terminix 30-day guarantee.

Pest control plans vs. bed bug removal services – what’s the difference?

Bed bug treatment from Terminix varies from typical pest control plans due to the nature and behavior of these unique pests. Bed bugs only feed on blood, making them poor candidates for the bait and wait techniques that work so well on termites, ants and cockroaches. Rapid elimination is also important because bed bugs can carry up to 27 different human pathogens. So the faster you remove these pests from your bed, the better. That’s why Terminix has taken such serious measures to develop its bed bug solutions. When your health is at stake, Terminix acts fast.

Who’s at risk of a bed bug infestation?

Hotel visitors, apartment dwellers and multi-family home residents are most at risk, but so are people who travel a lot or host international guests, as are homeowners who buy used and antique furniture, bags, purses and luggage. Bed bugs like the proximity of food sources and frequency of new guests in shared living spaces. And hitching a ride from one nesting spot to another is easy when you’re only 5 mm long.

Certain locations seem to experience higher-than-normal bed bug infestations year after year. Each May, Terminix releases its list of cities with the most bed bug service calls. Here’s who made it in 2013: Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Detroit, New York, Columbus, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Houston, and Baltimore. Big cities may draw the most activity due to having more hotels, more multi-family living complexes and more international visitors. But bed bugs can be found in almost any city across the U.S. So it’s always a good idea to check your home or hotel room. And if you find them, call the bed bug experts at Terminix right away.

How do I know if I have bed bugs?

Bed bugs are tiny – only 4-5 mm long – so spotting them can be tough. But here are a few signs that you may have a bed bug problem:

  • Visible bugs – Adult bed bugs are the size of an apple seed. They’re flat, reddish-brown and oval shaped before feeding; they’re red and swollen after feeding.
  • Skin casings – As immature bed bugs grow, they shed their skins leaving behind their tiny, dark-colored encasements.
  • Fecal matter – These look like black stains on beddings, or like tiny black or brown mounds on hard surfaces.
  • Blood stains – If you’ve been bitten, you may notice blood smears on your sheets. You may also experience itching, swelling and welting where you’ve been bitten – typically on the arms and legs.
  • Eggs – The small translucent eggs can be found between mattresses, along headboards and baseboards, or in the folds and crevices of fabric-covered furniture.

Terminix: the sure solution to bed bug problems

You can always treat bed bugs yourself. But professional treatment used in conjunction with mattress encasements is best. This eliminates the guesswork and gives you peace of mind. If you want a bed bug treatment so powerful it’s guaranteed to work, call Terminix. You’ll also get fast, safe and courteous service – done right the first time. That’s a promise.
