Bedbugs are small insects that feed on human blood. They have a flat, oval-shaped body and can easily enter your home by hitching a ride on humans, such as on purses and suitcases. They can be found in a variety of places, including houses, apartments, hotels, dorms, cars, cruise ships, and more. Signs of an infestation include itchy bites on your skin, blood spots on your sheets or mattress, bedbug droppings that look like black dots, white oval eggs that resemble tiny pieces of rice, and actual bedbugs in your bed.
Getting rid of bedbugs can be difficult, and using store-bought pesticides or DIY treatments can make the problem worse in the long run. Therefore, it is best to contact Plank Termite and Pest Control as soon as you notice them or suspect that you have bedbugs. There are different methods for bedbug extermination, but the two most popular treatments are chemical and heat treatments.
Chemical treatments are more effective when it comes to treating bedbugs compared to heat treatments. With chemical treatments, you can target the areas exactly where the bedbugs are hiding, unlike heat treatments. Chemical treatments are also more affordable compared to heat treatments. In contrast, heat treatments are more expensive, about three to four times as much as chemical treatments, and their safety is not guaranteed. Heat treatments require the temperature inside the walls of the home to be at 120°F for an hour or two, which can cause wires and other materials in the house to melt or possibly explode. In addition, heat treatment can kill bedbugs, but it won’t prevent them from returning.
Chemical treatments have a residual chemical effect that acts as a barrier against future bedbug infestations, which makes it a more reliable treatment option. It can catch early-stage infestations quickly and eradicate them efficiently. At Plank Termite and Pest Control, we offer effective bedbug extermination programs that provide 100% eradication.
