It’s possible to pick up bed bugs almost any place—they’ve infested offices, stores, hotels, gyms and countless other places. They can hide in your luggage, personal belongings, or even on you, and hitchhike a ride back to your home, condo, townhouse or apartment. Once indoors, they can be extremely difficult to control without the help of an experienced pest specialist. A bed bug infestation has nothing to do with cleanliness — you can pick them up in the finest hotels, and they can hitchhike into the cleanest homes at any time. But, you can help reduce your chances of a costly bed bug infestation by catching them early.
If you have seen evidence of bed bugs or want to help protect your home against this multiplying intruder, Ragin Pest will perform a home inspection for you.
Bed bugs are sneaky and hard to find, but Ragin Pest is trained to pinpoint evidence if they are around. We will examine your entire home including the bed, furniture, rugs, linens and other target areas, and if required, use tools to check cracks and crevices.
Inspections will typically start in the bedroom and work outward through your home, concentrating on the furniture and the areas immediately surrounding the furniture. Some telltale signs of bed bugs may include:
- Live or dead bed bugs
- Skins cast off during the molting process
- Small spots of reddish-black fecal material
- Tiny cream-colored eggs usually found in dark crevices
Upon completion of the inspection and an assessment of the situation, Ragin Pest will recommend the best course of action. If the inspection confirms an infestation, a treatment plan based on the severity of the infestation and your preferences will be recommended. Ragin Pest only uses the best tools and science to address the causes and treat your bed bug problem in the best way for your family, pets, and the environment. This implementation method targets bed bugs as
well as the bed bug larvae — preventing them from maturing into breeding, biting, and potentially disease-carrying adults.
Bed bugs can be difficult to eradicate; so Ragin Pest will perform a follow-up visit to help ensure the effectiveness of the professional treatment that was performed. Additional visits and recommended next steps will ensure the best maintenance approach for your home.
