Bed Bug Treatment Options

Dealing with a bed bug infestation is a serious issue and should be addressed as soon as possible. At Safeway Pest Management, we offer professional bed bug treatment options for clients and homeowners near Franklin, WI, including a chemical treatment option that is a long-term, effective plan including initial service and required follow-up treatments for as long as necessary. Our trained and licensed pest specialists will determine how many follow-up treatments are needed based on each unique situation. Another option is heat treatment, which is an even more effective route to eliminating bed bugs as they are a type of heat-affected insect. For this option, the bed bug issue will typically be resolved in one single appointment rather than potential months of service.

Bed Bug Control

At Safeway Pest Management, we offer bed bug control services and prevention options for residents and commercial clients near Franklin, WI. If you want to actively prevent an infestation, we have mattress and box spring encasements available for purchase that are designed to provide protection against bed bugs. The encasements have been thoroughly tested in order to effectively protect you from bed bug bites, dust mites and other allergens like mold, mildew, pet dander and pollen.

 

Bed bug hitchhikers can be acquired while traveling and even brought into your place of residence by way of used furniture, so it’s important to take extra precautions in these situations to aid in bed bug prevention. Be sure to inspect your room and luggage before bringing it inside when you return home, and carefully inspect pre-owned furniture before purchasing or bringing it into your home. Some other prevention tactics include cleaning, vacuuming, changing sheets and avoiding clutter, which all can go a long way in preventing the spread of bed bugs.

Bed Bug Identification

Being able to identify bed bug activity is important in the event that your home has a bed bug infestation. If you’re able to identify bed bugs right away, you’ll have a better chance of preventing the spread of infestation to other areas in your home—and ultimately avoid dealing with a more severe and expensive problem as well as prolonged treatment.

 

Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) generally range from 4mm to 6mm in size (0.16in to 0.24in), and the body of a bed bug is flat with a rusty red color, or at times a brown color, and they have antennae and appear slender and segmented. Common colors to look for include red, brown and yellow, and it’s important to note that bed bugs are wingless.

 

Often, identifying the different signs of bed bug activity is easier and more productive than trying to see the bugs themselves. Look out for clusters or lines of itchy patches on the skin from bites while keeping in mind that bite reactions can differ from person to person. Bed bugs are crack and crevice creatures and prefer to harbor in such areas before and after a meal, and they shed their exoskeletons and leave them in the bed as they hatch and grow, so look out for piles of shed bed bug skin (also note, their shed exoskeleton can be easily mistaken for dust).

  • ¼-inch flat, rusty red or brown colored; or elongated, dark purplish colored

  • Reddish blood stains or brown fecal stains

  • Lighter colored empty bed bug casings

  • Pearly white oval eggshells (about 1mm long)

  • Strong, musty odor

  • Red, itchy bites, bumps or marks on skin. Bite reaction can vary from person to person.
