Bed Bug Treatment Options in Broward County
Bed bugs are becoming an increasingly common problem in the United States, and these pests are masters of invasion. At The Florida Pest Control Center, we understand that you cannot afford to house bed bugs in your home or place of business. Fortunately, there are some effective treatment options that can eradicate bed bug populations.
Bed bugs are parasites that feed on the blood of humans and other animals. Even though these pests are not restricted to the bed area, beds and mattresses are the most common location for an infestation. Bed bugs use a specialized beak to pierce the skin of an unsuspecting host, and the insect will feed until it is engorged with blood. Many individuals notice an infestation when the bite sites become red and itchy. Some individuals will develop a rash. In some cases, individuals may suffer from symptoms of an allergic reaction.
Bed Bug Heat Treatment
Heat treatment is a popular method for eliminating bed bugs from homes and commercial structures. The heat treatment can be used for small buildings or large facilities. With this method, the temperature of the affected building is raised to a temperature exceeding 120°F. This temperature is sustained for a pre-determined period to ensure that the bed bug population is fully exposed to the intense heat.
Bed Bug Fumigation
Fumigation is another method for treating bed bug infestations, but this treatment cannot be used in many residential or commercial structures. When a fumigation is performed, the structure must be vacated, and a pesticide gas is released within the structure.
