Bed Bug Fumigation & Heat Treatment Services for Florida Single Family Homes
Bed bugs are wingless insects with extremely flat bodies that allow them to hide in the smallest crevices. They undergo a three-stage metamorphosis starting as an egg, transitioning through the nymph stages before developing into an adult capable of reproduction.
A bed bug infestation can be determined by looking for bug bites, small blood smears on sheets and upholstery, discarded skins and dead insects. These ectoparasites give off a distinctive berry smell. They are nocturnal, and they survive by feeding on blood.
Bed bugs are prolific reproducers, making them difficult to control and exterminate once the population is well-entrenched in the home. Exterminators use different techniques to eliminate the bed bug population.
Fumigation with an odorless, stain-free gas has been effective on bed bugs in all stages of their life cycle. The gas, also used as an anti-termite remedy, is released in the infected area after sealing it off. Fumigation is a sensible extermination practice for single family homes because the property can be sealed off completely. It is not a do-it-yourself project because the chemicals cannot be sold to unlicensed users.
Heat treatment can also be used to win the war against termites. Dry heat measuring about 120 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit is introduced in the affected area. This treatment is safe and environmentally-friendly. The non-chemical treatment will seep into hard-to-reach areas where bed bugs may be hiding. The treatment is effective on bed bugs regardless of their life cycle stage.
