My Westminster clients often ask me how come the bed bug problem became so extensive without them seeing a single bug. Well, bed bugs are really-really good at hiding. They will hide in suit cases, boxes, mattresses, shoes, base boards - really anything that will keep them unnotices and in close proximity to their food supply - sleeping humans.
But, not to worry. We can help.
There is well-tested technology for dealing with bed bugs - heat treatment. We heat and kills the bugs at 135 degrees Fahrenheit.
There's also a new product on the market - killer spores! We are not kidding. A bunch of PHDs at Penn State University found that there were spores naturally occurring in nature that kill insects. They modified a particular group of spores to kill bed bugs. We've been using these in addition to our heat treatment and, honestly, we think we've gone many months now without a single call back to retreat. At this point we're getting it done with a single application. In reality, it is two-step process - first, we do the heat and then we come back a day later to do the spores. We cannot do both at once because the heat will kill the spores.
So, if you're living in Westminster MD and you're having bed bug issues, fear not! There is a solution we can offer - give us a call.
