Reliable Bed Bug Control In Cincinnati, OH
While we like to tell ourselves that bed bugs can't happen in our own home because we keep it clean, these pests are more common than most people think, and they don't just infest "dirty" homes. Bed bugs are easily picked up and brought home by unsuspecting people. You can pick up bed bugs in the places you frequent every day, like restaurants, theaters, gyms, offices, schools, and other public spaces. What makes bed bugs worse is that they often go unnoticed as they are nocturnal pests that are great at hiding. They are also tricky to remove as they spread throughout a home and are not exclusively near beds. The best way to get rid of a bed bug infestation is with the assistance of professionals. If you live in Cincinnati, you can rely on us at 1 Stop Pest Control for all things bed bug-related.
The Best Way To Handle Bed Bugs Cincinnati, OH
Some DIY bed bug removal methods include placing items in the dryer on the highest heat setting or putting things in sealed bags into the freezer at a temperature below zero. While these methods are successful in spot-treating, they are unreliable for removing an infestation that has spread throughout an entire home. As stated above, bed bugs are excellent at hiding, fitting into tiny cracks where they can keep themselves and eggs safe. Because of this, it is nearly impossible to treat bed bugs at every life stage without professional products and methods. Breaking the life cycle of the infestation is the only way to ensure they don't persist, which is why professional services are the best way to handle bed bugs.
How We Remove Bed Bugs From Cincinnati Homes
Our bed bug control process for Cincinnati homes consists of two or more of the following:
- A thorough inspection for signs of bed bugs.
- A liquid treatment consisting of two or three treatments.
- An Apprehend treatment typically consists of one treatment with a second inspection taking place 45 days after the service to check for bed bug activity. If you still have bed bugs, we will re-treat.
Usually, we will utilize both of the treatments listed above, but we will use just one in some cases, depending on the severity of the infestation. In any case, the technician you work with will help you make the best decision for your home.
K9 Bed Bug Inspection
Part of the difficulty with bed bugs is their ability to get into almost anywhere within homes they infest. If you treat only your bedding and fail to get the bed bugs hiding in your couches or furniture, it’s only a matter of time before the infestation simply reappears. The ability to find all the spots bed bugs are hiding is an essential aspect of a complete bed bug treatment, but that is easier said than done for humans working on their own - even for our talented technicians.
Luckily, man’s best friend is here to help. 1 Stop Pest Control is proud to provide K9 bed bug detection services with the help of our capable bed bug-sniffing hound Pixel. K9 inspections typically take place prior to treatment so that your technician can know exactly what areas to focus on. However, we can also provide post-treatment K9 inspections to ensure that nothing has been missed.
When it comes to bed bugs, nothing beats our Pixel’s sniffer! Contact us today and ask about K9 inspections to make the most out of your bed bug treatment!
