Kind People in Parkville - By Mark Cohen
We have worked with a very nice family in Parkville on getting their home treated for bed bugs. They were hard working-class people who just wanted to do the right thing. When you are a good person with a good heart, it's logical that you want to take care of your elderly. Not having much resources for providing a separate living apartment or assisted living place, my customers invited an older relative to live with them without any hesitation. It was the right Christian thing to do, so that the person can be properly taken care of.
Without even knowing, the relative brought in bed bugs with their belongings and it turned my customers home into bed bugs infested place some weeks or months later. Ironically, this was a classic case of "good deed not go unpunished".
Older people, especially those who live alone tend to not realize they have bed bugs. The vision is not as sharp as it used to be, the place seems to be a little more clutter doe to inability to easily move things around. In addition to that, for some bizarre reason, people over 65 tend not to react to the bed bugs as strong as younger people, so bites go ignored or unnoticed.
No one ever moves into a new place without stuff, and bed bugs travel on stuff, not people.
Moving caused infestations can be prevented. You can use the same tips we describe in the section of our website where we talk about prevention of bringing bed bugs home from the hotels.
If you find yourself in a situation where you invite a family member or a friend to live with you, do your due diligence. Still not sure about the risks? Give us a call and we will be happy to inspect the place for you.
Low Cost Heat Treatment (Thermal Remediation) for Bedbugs in Parkville, MD
Why Heat Treatment?
What makes our approach to bed bug control different? We use Heat Treatment. Chemicals, powders, freezing, etc. only work if the bed bugs are directly contacted. That's why most other methods fail. It is virtually impossible to find every single bed bug, not to mention - every single egg. Most chemicals won't kill eggs even if they are contacted. Back before I used heat treatment it would take me up to 3 retreats to get rid of all the bed bugs and these treatments would be spaced out over a month or more.
That's up to a month and a half before my customers could get relief. Even with my steam heater I was not getting a lot of success. The steam could only kill the eggs I could find them and many times the pressure from the steamer would send the bed bugs flying to the other side of the room where they would just walk away.
That's why I am now offering heat treatment. I was getting sick and tired of spending 4 and 5 hours doing chemical treatments only to get a call back from an angry customer. Heat treatment works because the heat penetrates everywhere. Chemicals, powders, freezing, etc. only work when you actually contact the bed bugs and most do NOTHING about the eggs.
It is impossible to find every egg and every bed bug, which is why all other treatment types fail miserably and why it takes so many retreats to even begin to get control. At 125°F all stages of bed bugs and their eggs die in under a minute. I usually achieve 100% eradication in the first heat treatment. Don't take it from me. Just Google bed bug heat treatment and see for yourself. More information on Bed Bug Control.
