For the reasons of safety, regulations and practicality, only some areas and articles will be treated with insecticide. Client will wash/heat-dry or dry-clean other articles. And some may be left as is.

Clothing, blankets, comforters, pillows and pillow cases, etc would be washed & warm dried or dry cleaned by client, before or soon after the treatment to avoid resurgence of Bed Bugs.

Closets, Drawers, Couches, Chairs, Bed Frame, Mattress-Box, Mattress, Baseboards, Cracks, Electrical Outlet Covers, and Surrounding Area will be some of the places where the treatment may be applied.

What is the Nature of the Treatment?

The insecticide used is a wettable powder which is dissolved in water for application. The spray employed is odorless and has a very light color. So it does not stain or damage typical surface. The insecticide has a very good residual quality and affects pests upon contact and not by smell, od our or va pours. So it is important that the surfaces where bed bugs are typically seen, are cleaned well in preparation for the treatment.

Before the treatment begins, the residents are to leave the area for at least 2 hours. The articles treated may be wet to touch and may need 30 minutes to 6 hours to dry, depending upon relative humidity, temperature and ventilation. Do not use mattress without sheets. We recommend using a fitted sheet and a flat sheet on the mattress.

It takes about 3 to 5 weeks for the Complete Elimination. Hence, it is requested that Client, Sanitize Clothing and Bedding Every Two Weeks to Suppress Possible Resurgence of the Pest.

How to Prepare for or What to do before the BedBug Extermination Service?

In a nutshell, Clean Thoroughly and Reduce Clutter by Organizing and Arranging Articles. Focus on the bed rooms and living room couch areas - where you sleep or sit for extended periods.

For faster and better results from the treatment:

  • Steam-Clean, Wet-Vacuum, Vacuum or Shampoo any carpeting. Mop any floorings. Especially, clean away any insecticides or chemicals that you may have tried to get rid of bedbugs.
  • Vacuum the mattress at the crevices, handles, & buttons
  • Similarly clean the box spring, bed frame, baseboards and other objects and flooring near the bed.
  • Discard or Empty the Vacuum bag.
The objects that can be moved, should be moved 4 to 6 inches away from the walls to facilitate spraying of the baseboards, etc.

What to expect and What to do after the BedBug Extermination Service?

Please, expect that the bed and it's components as well as the couches and the sofas may be left in the treated location and orientation to facilitate the drying. As well, have suitable and necessary help available to setup the bed and couches, etc, they way they were before the treatment.

If possible, arrange for better ventilation in the rooms to be treated, e.g. by opening windows a bit or setting up a fan. This will dry up the spray faster and the bed will become usable sooner. Have a pair of clean bed-sheets ready for use.

If there is an accidental spray on a non-target surface that would be touched, please, wipe off the insecticide using a damp cloth or paper towel and discard it.

Do not excessively and un-necessarily clean away insecticide from the baseboard, bed components or furniture except where there is a concern of unwanted contact by people or pets. Leave the insecticide for at least 5 weeks for it to keep affecting pest population.

Do not change bed sheets on daily basis as regular disturbance of bed components will gradually cause the insecticide to come off.

Do not use any cleaning agents and / or insecticides on the treated surfaces and objects as that will degrade the effectiveness of our treatment.

The treatment does not instantly kill off all the BedBugs anywhere and everywhere in the treated structure. It will take at least 3 to 5 weeks for the BedBugs to gradually die off. It is so because BedBugs are affected only when they come into contact with the treated surfaces. And as they do not feed on daily basis, it may take a few weeks for all of them to be eliminated. During this period it is expected to see live BedBugs. They will die in a few hours after coming in contact with the treated surfaces.

How to Handle Sanitization of Clothing and Bedding?

Typically BedBugs do not nest in pillow cases, comforters, blankets and sheets, etc. That does not mean that they can not be found walking on these things.

The articles that are to be sanitized and cleaned by the client may be too many and too much to be handled at once. This task can be broken up into smaller segments and prioritized by putting articles, not needed in near future, in large bags and sealed. Objects for immediate use can be sanitized on priority.

As needed the articles can be cleaned or washed and used on as needed basis. Please, treat fabrics according to manufacture's directions in your sanitizing efforts.

Articles of immediate use may be warm washed and heat-dried or dry-cleaned as directed by the manufacturer, to get rid of bed bugs and their eggs.
