I think we can all say that we don’t want bugs near our bed. However, because of where they live and when they’re active, “bed bugs” were aptly named.
Bed bugs are especially energetic at night, when humans are sleeping in their beds. Bed bugs come in and feed on blood for sustenance, and thus the rivalry was born between people and bed bugs.
Bed bug treatments did a great job in the past, but weren’t the safest for people. We almost had it under wraps, but when interstate travel and the ease of travel came about, bed bugs decided to hitch hike all around the country (and world) making them an even bigger issue than before.

There are chemicals that work for getting rid of bedbugs in some conditions, but we often prefer to use a heat treatment for bed bugs, which entails bringing in a commercial heater and raising the temperature of the home to where the bed bugs either come out of hiding or cannot survive. It is a very effective bed bug treatment. Call us today.
