Bedbug Treatment Plan

1. Inspection

Our team of experienced technicians will identify whether or not bedbugs are present in your home, as well as locate the source of activity and possible hotspots. Bedbug infestations typically take a couple weeks to bloom. They multiply quickly, each laying 5-7 eggs a day. The only way to get rid of the problem permanently is to call a professional exterminator before they overrun your home.

2. Recommendation

Following our bedbug inspection, we provide a recommended treatment plan for your home in Humboldt county. We often include a shotgun approach in our plans, which covers all areas of the home thoroughly in order to ensure the most success.

3. Treatment

Wall cavities are treated with an insecticidal dust through small incisions in drywall. Wall cavities may also be accessed around electrical fixtures, like outlets or sconces. Secondly, a perimeter crack and crevasse liquid treatment is performed on window trims, door jams and crown molding to kill any bedbug that may be hiding within. Lastly, we'll invert your furniture to cover all sides with liquid treatment.

4. Monitoring

The gestation period for bedbugs is 7-10 days. For this reason, we return between a 10-14 day period to make certain we are applying a barrier of fresh treatment for any freshly hatched eggs. After this two week period, your house should be completely free from bedbugs.
