We use the Chemical Method. The Heat Method is no longer insurable nor is it a reliable method.
Yes it is safe. No one needs to leave the home during or after treatment
We have maintained a 100% success rate for the past 10 years (including large scale / major infestations).
We can only guarantee to rid you of your current infestation. It is impossible to guarantee against another
bed bug ever entering the location again (especially with the newest statics showing that 50% of the local
population will be effected by bed bugs this year). And EPA approved products only last 90 days. HOWEVER, we find excellent success in educating you
against having a repeat situation. Certain protocols CAN drastically reduce your chances of a new infestation.
Much like termites and termite treatments (average termite home treatment is around $1000), Bed Bug Treatments require certain knowledge, procedures, products, and time to be successful. No generic
form of the correct products is available on the market yet (only name brand/high end products). Bed Bugs are the most unique insect on the planet.
Over the counter products are ON CONTACT only solutions. You must hunt down every single bug and spray it
directly. NOTHING over the counter works on hatching eggs, regardless what the label claims. So you will need to wait until the eggs have hatched, to then locate those bugs to spray them directly as well. While you are waiting on the eggs to hatch, a sneaky bed bug that hid from ya, is off laying more eggs. It's a very vicious cycle. Our Professional products have a 'residual' effect (they continue working long after we spray them--anytime a bug comes in contact with our solution, it will die).
Very minimal. All we will ask you to do is strip the beds of their bedding (sheets, blankets, etc) and launder them.
No other prep is necessary.
