While most people can agree, the emotional stress that a single bed bug sighting can bring on a business or homeowner can be overwhelming, but a secondary stressor is how to go about getting rid of them. JP Pest Services takes the stress and guesswork out choosing the most effective method, and the best pest management company.
The first step in solving a bed bug problem requires a professional inspection to confirm the identification and presence of the pest, which is performed in spaces of the property which are typically associated with bed bug infestations. This is typically centered around the sleeping and communal areas, and is then extended outward to evaluate other areas of the property.
After your service professional confirms the presence of bed bugs, they will consider a few factors regarding the property’s activity and what a “typical day” looks like to determine the most effective and appropriate way to eradicate the pest.
Once the presence of bed bugs has been confirmed and the extent of the population has been measured, your service professional will be able to work with you to prepare a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. With the help of a specially trained team and their use of revolutionary biological solutions and specialized trapping & monitoring tools, JP Pest Services will be able to eradicate the pillow pests quickly and efficiently.
Active Trapping & Monitoring
In addition to the materials used during the treatment, your service professional will most likely recommend specialized tools to help monitor the ongoing activity and trap any new bugs that might think to join the party later. These items allow you and your service professional to keep close tabs on bed bug activity following the treatment, because early detection is a game-changer when it comes to treating and minimizing the impact of infestations. These tools will likely include one or both of the following:
- Active monitors: Small, inconspicuous plastic cups that are placed between each bed leg and the floor. The cups are designed to allow bed bugs to climb into their moats and become trapped there, providing a simple and effective way to reduce population and monitor for activity.
- Mattress & box spring encasements: These encasements prevent bed bugs from hiding in hard-to-see areas of sleeping surfaces, and also prevent infestations from occuring in the interior of a mattress or box spring. This leaves bed bugs exposed and easily detected during visual inspections and treatments to sleeping areas.
Your service professional will perform a follow-up inspection a few weeks following your initial treatment in order to ensure its efficacy and your complete satisfaction as a JP Pest Services customer.
