Few insects can instill a sense of dread quite like a bed bug. Bed bugs ruin not only your night’s sleep, but also your security — and sometimes even your reputation. These parasites invade and infest homes and properties across all socioeconomic levels, and their excellent hitchhiking abilities mean they can be transferred anywhere.
As an industry leader in pest control, Smithereen offers unmatched bed-bug services for every situation. With over 100 years of experience, we’ve encountered just about every situation involving bed bugs, and we know how to handle them. Additionally, Smithereen provides Green Shield Certified service, implementing an organic pest-control protocol. That means our treatments are tough on bed bugs — but not on the environment.
Our Conventional Bed Bug Treatment Process
Though bed bugs can truly appear anywhere, they cause the greatest distress when they turn up in homes. Many of our clients call us out of concern once they’ve discovered one of these tiny, seed-sized bugs. They have reason to feel apprehension. Drawn to the body heat and exhaled carbon dioxide provided when you sleep, they can cover your body with bites and prove difficult to eradicate on your own.
Fortunately, Smithereen knows how to deal with bed bugs, and unlike many other pest-control companies, we employ an Integrated Pest Management approach. What does that mean? By understanding the life cycle of the pest (bed bugs, in this case) and making careful, on-site recommendations, we can eliminate your problem while simultaneously minimizing the chemicals used. This protects both people and the environment.
Our conventional service team will:
- Perform a detailed & thorough inspection
- Educate on the habits of bed bugs
- Explain the preparation requirements for service
- Perform a detailed & thorough service, incorporating a variety of innovative strategies
- Educate on the risks of re-infestation and how to avoid it
- Assist properties in bed bug management
Different site situations and customer preferences may lead our technicians to recommend alternative treatments. Our Thermal Remediation® is a chemical-free treatment strategy that relies on ambient heat rather than insecticides to eliminate bed bugs. A one-time treatment, it can solve many bed-bug problems far faster than the conventional approach. Our commercial clients may also find Cryonite® helpful. Designed for highly trafficked spaces where traditional chemical solutions simply won’t work (i.e., hospitals, retail stores), Cryonite® uses supercooled, environmentally friendly, reclaimed carbon dioxide to freeze bed bugs.
