Inspection- Preventive Pest Control inspectors are looking for signs of bedbugs; blood stains on bedding around headboard, looking under mattress, box springs, anywhere the potential host (human) has slept. Often times the person feeling bites will grab a blanket and pillow and move to another room, bedbugs will hitch a ride and infect the new location.
Sighting of a live bedbug only occurs 20%-30% of the time! We look for “signs” like dead carcasses and blood stains. Many people experiencing bedbugs for the first time have common factors leading up to the infestation such as recent travel, guests staying over, or an outbreak at a school or daycare. Only 30%-40% of people bitten by bedbugs will show signs and symptoms of the bite. Bites from bedbugs are usually 3 bite marks in a row 1/8 inch apart. Bites become itchy, scratching will result in a rash around bite area.
Once bedbug infestation has been confirmed, your Preventive Pest Inspector will make a visual assessment of the areas to be treated. Typically, the bathroom, kitchen and any appliance emitting heat will not need to be included in the treatment (bedbugs hate heat).
Our recommendation will most likely include treating the entire residence in terms of sleeping and resting areas, clothes closets and dressers, drapes and behind picture frames. We must also treat behind electrical outlets and any wall voids. When under attack bedbugs will hide in every crack and crevice they can find. Two to three follow- up treatments are required to ensure infestation has been killed, which is all included in the initial service quote.
