Bed Bug Control

Bed Bugs

Residential and Commercial

Bed bugs can easily become your worst nightmare come true! They are blood suckers who love to travel! They feed on the blood of people and animals at night while they are sleeping. They can invade by hitch hiking on items such as luggage, clothing, bedding, used furniture and even shoes. They usually occur around or near where people sleep, and have been reported in all 50 states. Due to their dramatic increase, The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) consider bed bugs a public health pest.They are not known to transmit or spread diseases, but adverse health effects may result from their bites. These can include skin rashes and allergic symptoms. Secondary infections can include impetigo, eczema, and lymphangitis.

Bed bugs don’t discriminate between a clean or a dirty environment. They are incredibly difficult to control because they are so good at hiding in the tiniest cracks and crevices. They have become highly resistant to the pesticides used for their control, and Do-It-Yourself pest control practices have actually added to furthering the rapid spread of these nasty pests. At Otis Termite & Pest Control Service, we combat these unhealthy, unwanted pests with a thermal heat treatment that is the safest, most effective approach to ridding your home of bed bugs. We use special equipment designed to raise inside temperatures in the areas of infestation to a thermal temperature that penetrates all cracks and crevices and kills both the bed bugs and their eggs. No potentially harmful gas is used and your belongings never have to be removed.
