Bed Bugs Alert! What if your neighbor has bed bugs?

A consistent problem we have is that a customer will call us and upon inspection of their premises we will find scant evidence of bed bugs, but an inspection of their neighbors reveals they are loaded with bed bugs! In Baltimore city, where many live in row houses, this is a big problem. Regardless of what treatment method you use, if your neighbors got them and they do nothing, the problem will return! The residual value of insecticides under these circumstances is extremely limited. Laws regarding what your neighbors are required to do are limited in most jurisdictions. However, some of the customers have had success forcing their neighbors to take action. The methods are as follows:

  1. Pay for a portion or the entire treatment for your neighbor's property.
  2. Report the situation to the housing authority (Baltimore city residents.)
  3. If children are living in the property and have bite marks report them to protective services.
  4. Speak to an attorney. Whitney & Bogris specialize in bed bug litigation. You can reach them at 410-583-8010.
Also, health departments may be able to help in some counties. if pursuing a municipal authority, be persistent! Most local agencies are overwhelmed and under-funded, but the squeaky wheel gets the oil! Good luck!

Important Information for Baltimore City Residents

Read this helpful information if you live in Baltimore city.

Don't waste your money on bed bug products that simply don't work at all. The other day we did a bed bug heat treatment for a couple in Parkville. The husband told me that when he first started seeing bed bugs he went out and purchased $200.00 worth of Fabriclear, a product that supposedly can help control bed bug infestations. He said that he applied Fabriclear 3 times a week for two and a half months as directed by the label. He also purchased and used Hotshot. The problem kept getting worse. After we finished treating his property there had to have been at least 500 dead bed bugs. Literally, everywhere I looked there were dead bead bugs, and in some places piles of dead bed bugs. As I write this, the federal trade commission is lodging deceptive advertising charges against Cedercide and RMB group, distributors of Rest Easy and Cedercide, two products that apparently don't control bed bugs as claimed. Finally, about half of the customers that I get have tried chemical only treatments that failed. Although heat treatments may not be 100 perfect 100 percent of the time they are the best we have. If you absolutely cannot afford heat I understand, but if you can afford it and you choose another route to save money, you are doing yourself a great disservice. In the end you will probably end up with a heat treatment and that $200 or $400 you spent could have been applied to something that actually worked and you could have gotten there a lot sooner.

Low Cost Heat Treatment (Thermal Remediation) for Bedbugs

We offer discount bed bug heat treatment for the greater Baltimore area. Heat treatment is proving to be the most effective and greenest way to kill bed bugs. We have state of the art heat treatments that is reasonably priced. In addition we also use chemicals. Heat treatment is the most thorough since the heat permeates every crack and crevice. It kills all of the bed bugs and all of the eggs. All else are spot treatments that only work if you directly contact the bed bugs which is impossible since you never find them all and you never find all the eggs. The chemicals give you the residual effect which means it keeps working after we're gone. If you need a bed bug exterminator in Baltimore, look no further.

In 2010 research done at the university of Kentucky and additional research done at the university of Minnesota showed that temperatures of 122ºF and above killed all life stages of bed bugs. That means eggs die too! We usually achieve temperatures of around 135ºF. At 135ºF we can kill the bed bugs with out destroying electrical devices since internal temperatures of most electrical devises, when in operation, can reach 160ºF.

Are all heat treatments really the same? Basically yes, the only thing that varies is the price.

Bed Bug Heat Treatment Equipment (Outside)There are 2 important aspects of thermal remediation - temperature, and circulation. If temperatures of 125ºF or more are reached and the hot air is circulated properly, so that all surfaces are heated evenly, for at least 3 hours or more, you will achieve 100 mortality in one application.

Some Tips for Bedbug Treatment

Although an adult bedbug can go a year without eating, bed bugs usually feed once every 10 days which means they are not out and about much and therefore have limited opportunity to come in contact with treated areas.

A clean home will make treatments more effective, but will not prevent bedbugs. If you travel or have overnight guests, inspect all luggage entering your home. Also put all clothing in suit cases in the dryer at high heat for at least 20 minutes. If you live in a town home you may want to ask neighbors if they are experiencing a problem. Bed bugs are consistently migrating and in older neighborhoods they can easily find their way into adjoining homes.
