Spiders, Fire Ants, Wasps, Fleas, and Mosquitoes, to name a few, are more than just nuisances. Their bites can be painful or even fatal under certain circumstances. These types of pests must be dealt with in a timely fashion and in a way that you know that you will not have to deal with them again for a very long time. Let us protect you and your family from these dangerous pests.
Bed bugs are the things that nightmares are made of. These vicious little blood suckers have developed a way to feed on their prey undetected… they wait until you are asleep! Bed bugs have a unique ability to detect the CO2 levels in the air around them. This lets them know when a potential victim is fast asleep. They then come out of their hiding places, which can be up to 50 feet away, and they begin to feast!
Because bed bugs can go for 6 months to a year without feeding, many chemical treatments are ineffective and getting rid of them. Very few chemicals have a residual beyond 6 or 7 months so in many cases the bed bugs simply hide until the chemicals stop being effective and then they resume feeding. For this reason, we use a combination of heat, which penetrates hard to treat areas; and chemicals for any stragglers. Heat, properly applied, has a 100% mortality rate for all bed bug life cycles! Give us a call today so you can sleep tight, and not let the bed bugs bite!
