Bed Bug Extermination

Bed Bug Extermination begins by identifying the rooms that have bed bug activity.  Once that is determined the homeowner is asked to remove all clothing and anything washable from the closet and drawers, in addition to the bed linen.  Those items then need to be laundered and dried.  It’s actually the heat from the dryer that will promote the bed bug extermination from the clothing and linens.

How Peninsular Treats Bed Bugs?

The next step for the Peninsular Pest Control Technician is to completely disassemble the bed.  That requires removing the mattress and box springs from the frame and completely disassembling the bed frame itself.  Bed bug are creative in their hiding spots and they are sometimes found in the joints of the bed frame, behind pictures on the wall and the tufts of a pillowtop mattress.

The treatment process involves an intense 4-6 hour treatment per room. Most treatments will require a follow-up treatment if it is determined that there is still bed bug present in the room.
