We can save your belongings! Don’t throw out your furniture! 

Home / Apartment/ Condo

We will bring the living areas of the home to lethal to bed bug temperatures. The elevated temperatures will effectively eliminate all stages of bed bugs– eggs, nymphs and adults.

Bio-Pesticide Bed Bug Treatment (Great Value!)

Bio-pesticide bed bug treatments are unique in that it utilizes one natural organism against another natural organism. Bed bugs perish within 7 days of encountering the active agent. The bio-pesticide also has a transfer effect, which means an “infected” bed bug can pass it to other bed bugs in the colony. This treatment works slower, but it just as effective at eliminating the pests.

All people, plants, and pets must be out of the home and secured outside. All animals must be kept away from our Service Professionals and the treatment area. Please drain and remove fish from their tanks.

Clothing in drawers can be left in drawers unless they are
densely packed. If clothing in drawers is densely packed,
remove them and place them loosely in open-weave laundry
baskets.  DO NOT place clothing in plastic bags.

Please leave your mattresses and box springs and all bedding “as is”. No need to make your bed because half way through the treatment we are going to remove your bedding and rotate your mattress.

Unplug all home electronics. (Plasma televisions should be removed.)
