Bed Bug Control
It’s Time to Say “Good Night” to Your Bed Bugs
You’ve probably heard someone say, “sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite” before you headed off to a peaceful night’s sleep. However, it’s quite good advice. A bed bug infestation can be quite a nuisance, and their bites are not fun to experience either. If you’re looking for an exterminator, you’ve come to the right place. At Frame's Pest Control, Inc., we’re experts in bed bug removal so you don’t have to be. In fact, we’ve used our 125 years of combined experience to help countless homes and hotels in Toledo, Ann Arbor, and the surrounding areas.
A Brief History of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs have been a nuisance since 340 BC, feeding on blood and traveling from place to place. With the development of DDT and other effective and long-lasting (but highly toxic) pesticides, they were nearly eradicated. Unfortunately, we’ve seen a resurgence of infestations due to more frequent air travel and stricter regulations on pesticides.
Today, around one in five people have encountered bed bugs themselves, or they know someone who has. This is because these pests do not care whether a place is clean or dirty. Only seeking their next blood meal, they hide during the day in dark, difficult to reach crevices, and only come out at night to feed. They are able to locate hosts from which to suck blood from due to body heat, carbon dioxide when we exhale, and other biological factors they are able to sense.
Bed Bug Remediation Options
Using our experience, research, and expertise, we have developed a custom pest control plan that offers both excellent elimination of the immediate infestation and a temporary level of protection against straggling bugs and reinfestation.
Frame's Pest Control, Inc. offers three bed bug remediation options:
- Conventional bed bug remediation
- Bed bug heat remediation
- Biopesticide bed bug remediation
Our conventional bed bug remediation program utilizes the latest advancements in pest control products and techniques to eliminate bed bugs. We treat the entire structure with a variety of products designed specifically for this purpose. Our program includes two treatments, a follow-up inspection, and bed bug mattress and box spring encasements. This treatment program is a good option for bed bug infestations where preparation for the treatment will not be an obstacle for the homeowner.
Our bed bug heat remediation program utilizes heat to eliminate bed bugs. Using our heat machines, we raise the temperature that is lethal to the pests. Additionally, we spot treat bed bug harborage areas with conventional products. This program includes a heat treatment, a follow-up inspection, and bed bug mattress and box spring encasements. Our heat treatment program is ideal for most bed bug infestations, especially when traditional treatment preparation is impossible or not ideal.
Our biopesticide bed bug remediation program utilizes the latest advances in bed bug behavioral understanding and in natural, biopesticide research. This treatment program uses naturally occurring fungal spores that colonize and kill bed bugs at all stages of their life cycle shortly after they come into contact with the product. Additionally, we spot treat bed bug harborage areas with conventional products when necessary. This program includes two biopesticide treatments, a follow-up inspection, and bed bug mattress and box spring encasements.
