You probably don’t need to be a professional exterminator to know that it is much better to deal with a small bed bug infestation than a large infestation. Heck, this is pretty much common sense, but one might not understand why this is the case. Smaller, more confined infestations are not only easier to deal with because the numbers are smaller, but the bugs are less spread out. However, what really helps more than anything is the fact that traditional treatments and methods might work in smaller infestations, whereas they wouldn’t work in larger infestations.
Pesticides and chemicals are the perfect examples of this. These treatment options produce positive results in smaller infestations, where they are less effective in larger infestations. With this in mind, a new study produced at the University of Purdue still proved that it does take additional pesticide treatments to kill these bugs. Just one application of pesticides and chemicals will not be enough to eradicate today’s bugs. This is because they are more resilient.
This is now something we’ve built into our pest management programs. Here is what one of our programs looks like now:
- You give us a call and set up an appointment.
- We send out an assessor to evaluate the property.
- During this evaluation, the assessor will look for potential entry points into the home, breeding sites, and the best way to attack the problem.
- The next visit will be the actual administration of the chemicals and pesticides.
- 10 to 14 days later we’ll be back to administer more pesticides and chemicals.
- 30 days after this we’ll be back to do a follow-up visit to make sure that the problem is completely eradicated.
- During the last visit, our techs will sit down with you and develop a prevention plan to help you keep your property pest-free for the foreseeable future.
Bed bugs are no doubt a tough insect and only getting tougher as time goes on. This is why additional applications of treatments are now required. With this in mind, do be aware of the fact that we do offer emergency services if and when they are needed. Regardless of the situation, just give our Las Vegas offices a call. We are here, ready, and willing to serve when and where needed.
