Your Ehrlich technician will provide you with a preparation sheet (also available in Spanish), which lists the minimum requirements that you should complete prior to a service.
We often recommend a thorough cleaning of all areas and rooms in your home, if required. This will help to disturb and eliminate potential harbor sites for bed bugs.
As part of the preparation, you may be asked to disassemble your bed for easier treatment.
In the case of large infestations, we may recommend that you discard your mattress and box spring (ensure these are wrapped and sealed in plastic in the infested room before removal).
If you wish to keep your mattress and box spring, we would recommend you purchase a bed bug mattress protector, as this will help to minimize potential for re-infestation.

Bed bugs are cryptic by nature and prefer to remain hidden during daytime. Your Ehrlich technician will use a bright flashlight to look in any dark, isolated places, which may harbor bed bugs, as well as looking for other common signs of their presence.
Insect monitors (sticky traps) may be left around bed bug hotspots to catch some insects but generally a visual inspection is far more productive.
Your technician will wear disposable gloves to avoid bed bug bites and may use multiple hand tools, including a magnifying lens as part of the inspection.
Dogs are known for their keen sense of smell and at Ehrlich we have a team of trained bed bug dogs, which can help to detect and locate the presence of bed bugs in your home - their detection is proven to be extremely accurate.

Conventional Treatment - The most commonly used method of removing bed bugs in residential homes, conventional bed bug treatments consist of the use of insecticides in the form of dusts, liquids and aerosols to eliminate infestations. Our conventional bed bug service includes 3 treatments over the course of 4 to 6 weeks. In some instances, your bed bug technician may recommend a steam treatment along with your conventional treatment.

Heat bed bug treatments also act fast - often removing bed bugs from locations in less than 6 hours. Contact your local branch to ask if heat treatment for bed bugs is available in your area.
