– Bed Bug Control & Treatments

Once people have confirmation of bed bugs present in their home or businesses there are options they can make in eradicating this nasty pest.  The eradication options to you should be based on the level of infestation and other factors including your budget.  These options are chemical and freeze and heat treatment performed by professionals.  Commercial products that are available in retail stores have limited effectiveness and at times may make your infestation worse.

Here are some options available:

Chemical and Cryonite “Freeze” Treatments:

Chemical Treatments that are conducted thoroughly and correctly by a licensed Pest Control Professional can be a very effective way of controlling bed bugs.  Three different types of insecticides should be used in order to achieve the best result. There are many different brands of insecticides but one of each of the following broad categories should be used.

  1. Fast-acting, contact insecticide for use on surfaces that humans frequently touch, i.e. sofas.
  2. Residual insecticide for inside furniture, cracks and crevices and the underside of surfaces we touch.
  3. Dust insecticide for cracks, crevices and voids, such as electrical outlets and baseboards.

A thorough insecticide treatment should involve 2-3 visits from the Pest Control Professional, as it is unlikely all the bed bugs will be killed in the initial treatment.  An insecticide treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to 2 hours per room depending on size and condition of the room. Once the treatment is complete you should wait until all the insecticides have dried before reentering your home, or until the PCP says it is safe to re-enter.

Cryonite or Freeze Treatment

  • Cryonite is a green, eco-people friendly, poison free solution that uses carbon dioxide to literally freeze Bed Bugs to death.
  • Cryonite is recommended for use in food manufacturing plants, residential facilities, warehouses, malls, hotels, resorts, offices, condominium, logistics, food chain establishments, hospitals & schools.

How does CRYONITE work?

  • Making the snow
  • The CO2 is in a liquid form in the tube and will come out frozen (snow) from the nozzle. About half of the CO2 will become cold gas, blowing the snow forward into the pests hiding places.
  • The CO2 snow made by CRYONITE is a mixture of 3 different types of particles: small, medium and large sizes. The three together will form snow with optimum freezing qualities. This mixture has been tested to give the optimum result against pests.

 Heat Treatment

What the Treatment Entails?

Killing bed bugs with heat simply entails getting the interior of your home up to a level of heat that they cannot survive. If you have ever been in a sauna, you know just how intense it can be. You know how it reaches every corner of the building, allowing no escape unless you exit the building altogether.

Since you cannot see all of the bugs or all of their eggs, you need this sort of a treatment since heat can hunt them down for you. There will be no need to locate their nests when your entire home has been heated up until it is a death trap for these bugs.

Hire a bed bug heat treatment professional.  He or she will know how to set things up so that the process is fast and safe. These are two things that you really want when your home and your family are involved.

Monitoring Treatment

The professional will also be able to monitor the process to make sure that the home is hot enough for a long enough period of time. If this is not carefully watched, these bugs might be able to survive what was thought to be a lethal amount of heat.
