Bed bugs (cimex lectularius) cause significant stress to homeowners and business owners alike and bedbug control is one of the top pest control programs of the modern day. Not only do they hide very well which can make them difficult to detect, but they also feed on our blood, and that makes them the enemy!

Bed bugs don’t move about much during the day. Instead, they focus on feeding at night when we are at our most vulnerable. If it wasn’t enough that their bites are quite itchy, they prefer to live in our most intimate room: the bedroom! This can affect not only our stress levels but our intimate moments as well.

Bed bugs don’t ask for your credit score or annual income before they infest. They’ll go wherever the food is. This includes businesses as well. Discovering bed bugs or their signs means you need to  Contact Us right away to avoid further spread. Otherwise, even a single bug can reproduce until a large infestation is present; usually within only a few months.

At about the size of an apple seed (3/16 – 1/4 inch), adult bed bugs are a small insect that can and hide easily. Their young are even smaller and can hide in places the average person would never think to look, like inside the grooves of a 4-way screw head! This makes them a challenging pest for the average homeowner to detect. That’s why Four Seasons Pest Solutions has spent hours upon hours thoroughly training our staff to know what to look for, where to look and how to eliminate bed bugs.

There are, however, a few places you can inspect to be sure if you have an infestation. With a flashlight, you can begin to meticulously inspect beds, bedframes, box springs, headboards, nightstands and other areas. If you find live bugs, dead bugs, cast skins, fecal deposits, blood spots or tiny white eggs in any of those areas, you need a professional pest company right away.

Bed Bug Lifecycle and Reproduction

Finding all stages of bed bugs is common, especially in heavier infestations that have been present a few months or longer. The bed bug lifecycle begins with the adults. Once mating occurs and the female becomes fertilized, she will be able to produce eggs viable for hatching as long as blood meals are available. She will produce about 1-7 eggs per day for roughly ten days after one blood meal. These eggs will hatch in roughly 6-9 days. If adequate blood meals are available, a newly hatched bed bug can reach reproductive maturity within about 40 days. This means within only a few months, a serious infestation can arise from merely one female bed bug.

Since the eggs are tiny, and often laid in cracks, crevices and other hard to see places, they can go undetected for a great deal of time. That’s why it is crucial that if you suspect bed bugs are present, you contact Four Seasons Pest Solutions right away for an inspection.

Inspecting for bed bugs is a difficult job but can be made easier with a few tips.

Bed Bug Control

The best way to control bed bugs is to never get them in the first place, but that’s easier said than done. A few key tips might aid in prevention although they aren’t full-proof:

  • Try to store luggage away from sleeping areas
  • Do not take items inside an area with a known or suspected infestation
  • Only borrow/buy/use items from an area you trust does not have an infestation
  • Consider buying new furniture instead of used
  • Check hotel reviews before booking

Since prevention methods are well less than full-proof, you may very well find yourself with an infestation. When that happens, Four Seasons Pest Solutions has got you covered!

Heat Treatments

Though much misinformation revolves around heat treatments, in conjunction with other methods, they are quite successful. Heat treatments allow us the ability to eliminate bed bugs right away. The draw-back is that no residual killing effects remain once treatment is complete. That’s why we offer residual follow-ups for added protection. Heat treatments are costly, but in many cases, are the perfect option for bed bug control.

We can also provide heat treatment to furniture, books, small items like stuffed animals and certain toys and collections with our Bed Bug Heat Chambers.

DIY Bed Bug Control. Does it Work?

There is an endless supply of DIY products advertised for bed bug control. It’s no secret that manufacturers are willing to stretch the truth about their products. Although all the DIY products will kill bed bugs, so will smashing them with a flyswatter! Don’t let an advertising gimmick fool you; if you want long and lasting results, hiring a professional is your best option.

Self-treatment may seem like the most affordable option to many. However, that’s usually not the case. Besides the fact that most consumers know little to nothing about how to safely use insecticides inside a home, most end up spending $1-5 thousand on unsuccessful attempts at controlling their bed bug infestation. Additionally, some DIY products can be lethal in the wrong hands!

DIY Bed bug treatment methods usually wind up costing homeowners more than professional treatments and leave them with failed bed bug control attempts. Hiring a profesional exterminator is your best bet when dealing with bed bugs

DIY bed bug control products are marketed to homeowners who have no experience in control measures. When the product fails, and it likely will, it is easily blamed on misuse, failure to follow label instructions or incorrect application methods.

Choosing the Right Treatment

We understand the expense that comes with hiring a pro, but we also know the countless reports of failed DIY attempts by customers. More than half of our bed bug clients have reported previously using DIY products and replacing furniture, only to find out there were still bed bugs present only a few months later. We can save you the hassle, the failure and the money!

We designed our A.C.T. Bed bug Program to offer unprecedented warranties! That means it HAS TO WORK! If it doesn’t, we have to stand behind that warranty. What does this mean? It means we make sure our treatments work!

You can choose to DIY your bed bug control, cross your fingers and hope it works. That’s an option some are willing to go for. Or, you could be frugal with both your happiness and your wallet, and simply call Four Seasons Pest Solutions. Then, you’ll know exactly what your treatment will cost, have a great guarantee and an extendable warranty of up to 24 months!

If you decide to DIY, please read the entire product label before treatment. Keeping you and your family safe is our number one priority. Don’t risk your health to potentially save a few dollars.
