Are you concerned you may have bed bugs? You can rely on Ehrlich for bed bug treatment services that eradicate bed bugs quickly.
Our treatments range from conventional solutions to K-9 bed bug inspections to state-of-the-art heat treatments. Your specialist will recommend different treatment services depending on the specifics of the infestation.
We recommend that you hire a professional pest control company at the earliest sign of bed bugs. Bed bugs spread fast - each mature female bed bug can lay as many as 500 eggs in their short lifetime.
Give us a call at 1-800-837-5520 to schedule a FREE bed bug inspection or contact us by filling in our online form.
Your Ehrlich specialist will be able to review and recommend multiple solutions that are available to bring your bed bug problem under control.
We take a sensitive and sympathetic approach recognizing how emotional and stressful a bed bug infestation may be.
Our use of trained bed bug dogs will help to accurately detect and locate the presence of bed bugs. This will enable us to provide targeted solutions to identified bed bug hotspots.
This environmentally-friendly process has now been adopted in the industry for bed bug control. Heat treatment is widely regarded as one of the most effective solutions for bed bugs.
Portable heaters, either electric or propane-fired, are used to gradually heat the ambient air within rooms to above 120º F while monitoring with strategically placed temperature sensors and infrared thermometers.
This high temperature is then held for 1 ½ to 3 hours or more depending on the level of infestation and relative level of clutter in the treated rooms.
Heat treatment is a low-risk option for customers (and their pets), and the environment due to the minimal use of pesticides.
The service can be completed in just one day rather than over the course of a few weeks, and it’s effective against all life stages of a bed bug.
Contact your local Ehrlich office at 1-800-837-5520 or fill in the online form to find out if heat treatment is available in your area.
Treatment will usually begin at the focal point of the infestation, which is generally the bed in an infested room.
This will be followed by careful treatment of all items in the vicinity, including baseboards, floor/wall junctions, tack strips under carpets, behind electrical outlets and switches, cracks in walls and floors, items hanging on walls and relevant structural voids.
We also offer conventional bed bug treatment, which involves using approved pest control products in areas where bed bugs are more likely to be located. Products may include liquid, dust or aerosol.
Depending on the circumstances, steam treatment may be used as part of conventional treatment.
High temperatures are lethal to most insects provided they cannot quickly escape to a cooler location. The temperatures produced by portable steam units are more than sufficient to kill bed bugs and their eggs upon contact.
Steaming allows us to treat all surfaces of mattresses, box springs and upholstered furniture, which are often restricted with insecticides.
Steaming tends to get bed bugs to move out of deeper recesses as the temperature begins to rise, making them more likely to expose themselves or cross any applied insecticide.
Using steam treatment means there is less need for applying pesticides.
Steam may NOT be appropriate for treating all surfaces due to the moisture that is produced.
While not always the best choice, bed bug fumigation is also an option in a few select situations.
Fumigation uses materials in a gaseous state, which can penetrate all items placed within a fumigation space and is able to kill all stages of bed bugs present during the exposure period.
Please note that bed bug fumigation may not be available in all service areas. Contact us to inquire about availability.
The cost of bed bug treatment can depend on multiple factors, including the type of treatment used, the size of the property, and how heavy the infestation is. For example, it may be more expensive to treat a structure with a higher number of rooms compared to a one-room property. Also, heavier infestations may require more service visits to correct the problem, which can also affect cost.
Contact Ehrlich to schedule an inspection so we can better determine what the cost may be to eradicate the bed bugs on your premises.
You may wonder which bed bug treatment works the best. Fumigation is the most effective, because the gas used can penetrate all the cracks and crevices in a structure. However, fumigation cannot be performed in every kind of property and it may be more expensive in one part of the country compared to another.
Heat treatment also works well because it can eliminate bed bugs in places where pest control product cannot be applied. Both fumigation and heat treatment eliminate all bed bug life stages.
Regardless of the control method we use, we will do our very best to get rid of the bed bugs so you can rest easy knowing they are gone.
At Ehrlich, we ensure that there is a follow-up with every customer.
Our current standard practice is for at least 2 follow-up visits after the initial corrective service, to include inspection and treatment as needed.
We provide this service to ensure that we have effectively resolved your bed bug problem.
