Bed Bug Control
Are Bed Bugs In Your Las Vegas, NV Home Keeping You Up At Night?
Bed Bug Control From Anver Pest Control
For small bed bug infestations, we typically recommend a conventional product treatment. We’ll use a liquid product to treat the areas where bed bugs are known to hide. These areas include beds, couches, chairs, carpets, and more.
For larger infestations, we typically recommend a heat treatment. This treatment requires a bit of prep work on your part, and you cannot be present during the procedure. Bed bugs have a heat tolerance of 130°F, so unless it’s possible for you to heat your home to this temperature, the bed bug epidemic will continue. This treatment method works by heating each room in your house to this temperature and maintaining it for an hour to ensure that it reaches and eliminates all bed bugs present, including bed bug eggs.
Utilizing these non-chemical bed bug heat treatments allows us to eliminate all the bed bugs in your property in just a single visit, rather than conventional liquid treatments which often require multiple visits to achieve that result.
In some situations, we’ll suggest doing a combination treatment. In these instances, we’ll perform both a heat treatment and a product treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are bed bugs?
A: Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans.
Q: Where do bed bugs hide?
A: Because bed bugs are small and flat, they can squeeze into tiny cracks and crevices on the mattress and box spring, behind headboards, and inside furniture. They prefer to live in groups and are often found in clusters where the adults, nymphs and eggs are together in a protected area.
Q: What do bed bug bites look like?
A: Bed bug bites are difficult to distinguish from flea or mosquito bites because (as with all biting insects) not all skin reactions are the same.
Q: How did I get them?
A: Bed bugs are skillful hitchhikers. They travel in luggage, on clothing, and inside furniture. They are found in hotels, movie theaters, airplanes, and many other public places where people are at rest for a period.
Q: Should I throw out my mattress and furniture?
A: In most cases, Anver Pest does not recommend that you discard mattresses, box springs, or furniture as these items can be inspected and treated successfully.
Q: Can I treat for bed bugs myself?
A: Bed bugs are “maddeningly difficult” to treat, even for our well-trained technicians. Many “do it yourself” methods eliminate some, but fall short of complete removal. Professional treatment for proper elimination is highly recommended.
Q: How does Anver Pest treat for bed bugs?
A: Everything has a heat tolerance point, and that point for bed bugs is 130°F. They will die within minutes at that temperature. Therefore, heat is the solution to this epidemic. So, unless homeowners have a way to get their home to this temperature, these little bugs will likely survive wherever they infest. This is where we come in. We have the understanding, training, and proper heating equipment to kill bed bugs in order to eliminate them from a residence.
