We’ve received a few bed bug calls lately here in Jacksonville, Florida, so I figured it was time to revisit the topic and give a quick refresher on bed bugs. Yes, the thought of bed bugs is fear inducing and causes panic – but with the right professional treatment, they are relatively easy (a little time consuming) to get rid of.
First things first, remember bed bugs are not something you get by doing anything, it is sheer chance. Bed bugs are likely brought into your house from recent travels, a new house guest or in furniture. The worst part about bed bugs, besides the bites and terror they cause, is they only can be removed by a professionals. DIY doesn’t work. Products you buy on amazon will not effectively kill them.
The most effective way to get rid of bed bugs is with a heat treatment. We use a thermal chamber and place any affected furniture inside. By maintaining a temperature of 135°F, we can kill any bed bugs and their eggs in a matter of a few hours.
Why is heat treatment the best option? It is chemical free, you are able to stay in your home right after treatment, most low to moderate infestations can be treated with one treatment and with heat treatment, we are able to reach the hardest to get places in your furniture.
