Do You Know Why Bed Bug Removal is so Important?

Bed Bug Removal Portland

For the past four years, The Killers have seen a steady increase of bed bugs in homes, apartments, college dorm room, and hotels. These bed bugs will become a huge problem for everyone unless we can get educated about what to look for and which treatments will eradicate them.

This is just a small list of the areas that we most commonly find bed bugs: in and around beds, bed frames, carpets, night stands, baseboards, clothing, curtains, and luggage. Most cases we see involve people traveling, or their kids have just come home from college.

The biggest misconception is that bed bugs are related to the cleanliness of a home. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. These little pests will catch a ride with anyone, at any time, and come home with them.

If you have signs of bed bugs, call us right away for professional bed bug removal in Portland.

Bed bugs are about the size of small seeds ranging from 1/6th-1/8 of an inch and are very flat in shape. These pests feed mostly at night within an hour of dawn and they’re drawn to carbon dioxide and body heat. Their food source is blood and they generally feed every 5-10 days if they have a constant host. One thing you can’t do is wait for them to disappear on their own. They will survive dormant for up to a year or longer without feeding, laying up to five eggs per day and hundreds in their 6-9 month lifetime of 6-9.

The bed bug is a unique pest and its treatment is very specific.

We will use a combination of spray applications including pyrethrums and steam. The most important part of the treatment is to be absolutely meticulous when applying to bed frames, box springs and the seams of the mattress. We will generally go around these areas two times to make sure that we have found all the bed bugs.

Cracks in the bed frame are very susceptible and can house many of the little critters. We can’t express enough how imperative it is to go over every square inch of the bedding and frame to make sure you have found them all.
