Bed Bug Program Overview
Bed bugs are blood-seeking insects known for infesting areas where people and animals sleep, and are a growing problem in North America, particularly in areas with large or transient human populations, such as apartment buildings, hotels, cruise ships and dormitories. Their bites cause itchy red welts, skin infections and allergic reactions as a result of the saliva they inject when they feed.
Notoriously hard to detect, bed bugs hide in bed frames, mattresses and box springs, clothing, luggage, furniture, book bindings, behind baseboards and under wallpaper. They are difficult to eradicate and don’t have a preference for dirty or clean areas – they are as likely to show up in a five star hotel as they are to take up residence anywhere else.

If the inspection and treatment outlined in Step 2 results in continued evidence of bed bug activity, then approximately 3-5 business days later we will schedule another inspection and treatment. Our service warranty states that we will continue supplying inspection and treatment until the problem is resolved.
