Our Bed Bug Control Process
Your bed bug control service begins with a full inspection of your house. We will look for any signs of bed bug activity, including blood and fecal stains, eggs, skin casings, and adult bed bugs. We will inspect every room for signs of activity since bed bugs quickly travel from room to room through the walls and can infest the entire house. Because of this, we recommend whole house treatments over individual room treatments.
After we’ve confirmed the presence of bed bugs and have an idea of how large the infestation is, we’ll provide you with a prep sheet of tasks that you must complete before we begin our treatment. These tasks prepare your house for the treatment in order to protect your belongings and make sure that the treatment is as effective as possible.
Greenville Pest Control uses heat treatments to eradicate bed bugs from your home. Heat treatments have several benefits over conventional bed bug control treatments. They require no chemicals, they eliminate bed bugs in all stages of development and in all areas of your home, and they do the job in just one day.
During the treatment, you will need to leave your home for the day because the treatment takes around eight to ten hours to perform. We will bring in special heaters to raise the temperature of your house to a degree that is lethal to bed bugs. That temperature will be monitored and held for several hours to ensure the complete elimination of your bed bug infestation.
After the heat treatment is complete, we’ll place bed bug monitoring traps in your house. These traps are accessible to you for your peace of mind and to alert you to any bed bugs that were missed during the treatment. Although rare, if you discover bed bugs in your home after the treatment, our bed bug control service includes a 90-day warranty. We’ll return to your house to take care of any problem that occurs within those 90 days.
