Bed Bug Inspection
If you’re dealing with a bed bug infestation, our trained and licensed pest specialists will conduct a thorough bed bug inspection in order to identify any possible infestations and determine the severity of the issue at hand. At Safeway Pest Management, our team has years of experience dealing with bed bugs, and they have the proper knowledge and tools needed to focus on key target areas in your home. Once they’ve completed the bed bug inspection, they will work with you to create a customized treatment option for your specific situation.
Bed Bug Treatment Options
If you’re dealing with a bed bug infestation, Safeway Pest Management offers varying bed bug treatment options for clients near Waukesha, WI. We offer a chemical treatment option for bed bugs, which is a long-term, effective plan that includes an initial service and required follow-up treatments for as long as necessary. Our licensed pest specialists will determine how many follow-up treatments will be needed based on each unique situation and the severity of the issue.
Heat treatment is another bed bug treatment option. This option is a more effective route to eliminating bed bugs because these pests are a type of heat-affected insect. When you choose heat treatment, it typically resolves the issue in one single appointment rather than months of service.
Bed Bug Control & Prevention
Safeway Pest Management provides bed bug control services as well as various prevention options for residents and commercial clients near Waukesha, WI. For example, we have mattress and box spring encasements available for purchase that are designed to provide protection against bed bugs, and the available 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.
It’s important to note that bed bug hitchhikers can commonly be acquired while traveling and can be brought into a place of residence by way of used furniture, and while travel is generally unavoidable, you can take extra precautions to aid in bed bug prevention, such as inspecting your room and luggage before bringing it inside when you return home. Make sure to carefully inspect pre-owned furniture before purchasing and bringing it into your home. Other tactics like cleaning, vacuuming, changing sheets and avoiding clutter can go a long way to help prevent the spread of bed bugs.
Bed Bug Identification
If you’re dealing with a pest problem, it’s important to know how to identify bed bugs in the event your home might have bed bug activity. If you’re able to identify bed bugs right away, you’ll have a better chance of preventing the infestation from spreading to other areas of your home, which would ultimately result in a more severe and expensive problem—and would also prolong treatment.
The bed bug (Cimex lectularius) generally ranges from 4mm to 6mm in size (0.16in to 0.24in), and common colors to look for include red, brown and yellow. 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—plus, it’s good to note that they are wingless.
Oftentimes identifying various signs of bed bug activity is easier than seeing the actual bugs themselves. Keep an eye out for clusters or lines of itchy patches on the skin from bites, though bite reactions can differ from person to person, and it’s good to note that these bugs are crack and crevice creatures and prefer to harbor in such areas before and after a meal. Bed bugs shed their exoskeletons and leave them in the bed as they hatch and grow, so look out for piles of shed bed bug skin—and keep in mind that their shed exoskeleton can be easily mistaken for dust.
