  • Red, itchy bites that tend to be on the hands, arms, or  neck

  • A musty odor in your room that is coming from your bed
  • Visible bugs, larvae, and eggs in your bed, mattress, or sheets

How Does One Get Bed Bugs?

Most people who suspect a bed bug infestation usually ask “how did I even get them in the first place?” There are a number of ways that bed bugs can get inside your home, and almost none of them have to do with the cleanliness of your home.  Bed bugs are notorious hitchhikers, the most common way is for you to visit an infected area and carry them home with you. People who suffer from a bed bug infestation may have also had a recent house guest who brought them into your home. Either way, the most popular way is they were carried into your home by you or someone else.

Why Do-It-Yourself Methods Are Risky

Because bed bugs travel (and travel fast), you want to eliminate the problem as quickly as possible before it spreads to other rooms within the home. This is we do not recommend do-it-yourself (DIY) methods.   — Many homeowners often attempt to eliminate bed bugs on their own in an attemp to save money, but they usually fail. Bed bugs are extremely resilient and many over the counter pesticides will not penetrate every single area of your room to kill all of their eggs.

Although the allure of DIY treatments is strong because it initially seems way cheaper, it often results in more costly treatments in the long-run because when they fail, bed bugs have the opportunity to spread from room to room. This is a very important thing to note since most bed bug treatments are priced according the size of the infestation and how many rooms need to be treated. So, if you suspect an infestation, do the smart thing and let a professional like Everything Bed Bugs handle it right away.

Non-Invasive Heat & Other Treatments

  • We use professional equipment to raise the temperature of the infected room to 120 degrees.
  • While this temperature is lethal to bed bugs, it’s safe for your home and belongings.
  • Heat treatments eliminate bed bugs in ALL life stages — including eggs and adults.
  • Because the entire room is heated, it penetrates the hard to reach areas chemicals usually cannot.
  • The best part? All it takes is one single treatment to get rid of each and every last bed bug!
  • We also use a other alternative treatment in some instances, depending on your home’s needs.
