How to get rid of bed bugs
Bedbugs are invasive insects that reproduce and spread rapidly. It’s important to treat the infestation with an effective treatment before it becomes a major problem. Bedbugs can be found everywhere, but the most frequently infested locations are family homes, apartment buildings, condo buildings, senior citizen homes and office buildings.
A bedbug infestation can be eliminated by heat treatment. This method consists in exposing the bedbugs to a very high temperature. Since these insects cannot survive in temperatures over 50oC, heat treatment is a fast and effective way to get rid of them, whatever their life cycle stage – eggs, nymphs or adults. Heat treatment is scientifically proven, safe and chemical-free. Most of the time, bedbugs are eliminated in a single treatment. That means you can return to your home or premises the same day, as this method leaves no residue and is safe for your health.
If you think you may have bedbugs but aren’t sure, you can request a canine detection visit. In 92% of cases, the first sign of a bedbug infestation is when you wake up with unexplained bites. A canine detection session should therefore be considered to detect the presence of bedbugs quickly and at an early stage. Doing so will also reduce extermination costs later.
Canine detection can be done in any type of building: house, apartment, hotel, school, business, etc. Our sniffer dogs, accompanied by our certified inspectors, can detect the presence of bedbugs in your home or commercial space with 98% accuracy. The canine team is regularly trained to detect live bedbugs, regardless of their life cycle. Through specialized training and continuous training with a handler, the dogs are continuously improving their detection rate. Since a dog’s sense of smell is nearly 10,000 times greater than that of humans, this non-invasive method is ideal for preventing a bedbug infestation.
