Bed Bug Control

Bed Bug Control in Cleveland, OH

You Need Expert Solutions for Bed Bug Problems

Unfortunately, bed bug problems have been steadily on the rise over the last few decades. Before the 1990s and early 2000s, bed bugs were considered mostly a thing of the past. However, in the last 20 or so years, they have come back with a vengeance, infesting hotels, public transportation, and private homes alike.

You'll need to take measures to protect your Cleveland home from bed bugs and to eliminate infestations in their early stages. This, of course, requires you to look out for signs of bed bugs so that you can catch infestations before they become established. Bed bugs are sneaky and can breed clandestinely for months or even years before you start to realize you have a problem. This is especially true when you take into account that bed bug bites are often mistaken for other bites, such as mosquito or flea bites.

If you travel or secondhand shop regularly, you will want to keep a keen eye out for signs of bed bugs, such as:

  • Brown spots on bedding 
  • Bed bug eggs 
  • Bed bug exoskeletons
  • Bites that appear in lines or clusters 
  • Live bed bugs

If you start to see these signs, it's important to remember not to panic. You don't need to throw out any furniture or take any drastic measures yet. If you catch the infestation in its early stages, it's usually possible to eliminate it with a single professional bed bug control treatment.

OUr Bed Bug Control Process

Here at LongPro Pest Control, our bed bug control methods don't just repel bed bugs, and they definitely don't give them time to keep on breeding and finding more hiding spots throughout your house. Bed bugs can't stand up to a thorough treatment from us. Here is how our treatment process works:

  • Inspection: The first thing we do when we come into your home is to inspect it to figure out how serious of an infestation we are dealing with. Sometimes, we walk into homes and find bed bugs just in the bed. Sometimes, however, we walk into a home and find that the bed and the furniture are already so overpopulated with bed bugs that the bugs have had to start moving into the walls. In cases this severe, there will often be signs of bed bugs in the corners where the wall meets the ceiling. 
  • Eco-Friendly Treatment For Removal: We have two main treatments that we can use to eliminate bed bugs. In cases where the infestation is less severe, it's often best to use eco-friendly pesticides for bed bug removal. These pesticides are safe for pets and people and will not cause harm to the environment either. They effectively eliminate bed bugs from specific areas or rooms of your house.
  • Heat Treatment For Removal: If you have a bed bug infestation that is severe enough, it may warrant a heat treatment. In this case, high heat will need to be applied to large areas of your house, if not the entire construction. In severe cases that require heat treatment, you may also need to throw out certain pieces of furniture or other items that have become too infested to salvage. The goal is to catch and eliminate bed bug infestations before you get to this point.

Does DIY Bed Bug Control Work?

Although you don't need to panic, you also don't need to try to deal with bed bugs on your own. Bed bugs in Cleveland are one of those kinds of pests that are almost immune to amateur efforts to eliminate them. You might read on the internet that you can get rid of bed bugs with essential oils or baking soda, but this will only exacerbate a bed bug infestation. There are quite a few reasons why not to deal with a bed bug infestation on your own including:

  • Limited effectiveness: Over-the-counter solutions often fail to fully eradicate bed bugs, leading to continued infestations.
  • Lack of expertise: Professional pest control services have the knowledge and experience to identify and effectively treat bed bug infestations, whereas individuals may lack proper training.
  • Risk of spreading: DIY attempts can inadvertently spread bed bugs to other areas of the home or to neighboring units in multi-family dwellings.
  • Health hazards: Mishandling pesticides or using them improperly can pose health risks to yourself, your family, and pets.
  • Cost inefficiency: While DIY methods may seem cheaper initially, repeated attempts and potential damage caused by ineffective treatments can end up costing more in the long run.

What's the difference between general pest control and bed bug control?

Bed bug pest control differs from general pest control due to the specialized techniques required to eradicate these elusive pests. Unlike common household pests, bed bugs hide in tiny cracks and crevices, making them difficult to detect and eliminate with traditional methods.

Why specialized treatment is needed for bed bugs:

  • Elusiveness: Bed bugs hide in hard-to-reach places, requiring specialized techniques to locate and eliminate them.
  • Resilience: Bed bugs are resilient and can quickly develop resistance to common pesticides, necessitating the use of alternative treatment methods.
  • Lifecycle complexity: Effective bed bug control requires targeting all life stages of the pests, from eggs to adults, which demands comprehensive treatment strategies.
  • Prevention of reinfestation: Specialized treatments aim not only to eradicate existing infestations but also to prevent bed bugs from returning by targeting potential hiding spots and entry points.

Longpro offers home pest control as well as bed bug control, but if you suspect you have bed bugs, a specialized treatment will be needed. Contact Longpro Pest Control if you are in need of bed bug services. We will inspect and treat your Cleveland home for bed bugs and offer general pest control for all your pest control needs.

What Are The Signs Of A Bed Bug Infestation?

Detecting a bed bug infestation early is crucial for effective treatment. Knowing the signs can help homeowners take prompt action to prevent the spread of these persistent pests. Here are a few signs of a bed bug infestation:

  • Visible bites: Waking up with itchy, red welts on the skin, often arranged in clusters or rows, is a common indicator of bed bug bites.
  • Blood stains: Small reddish-brown stains on bedding or furniture may result from bed bugs being crushed after feeding.
  • Dark spots: Tiny dark spots or smears on mattresses, bedding, or nearby furniture may indicate bed bug excrement.
  • Musty odor: A strong, unpleasant, musty odor in the bedroom or other infested areas can be a sign of a significant bed bug infestation.

Early detection and swift action are key in addressing bed bug infestations. Ignoring the signs or attempting to handle the problem alone can lead to further spread and persistent infestation. If you suspect a bed bug problem, don't hesitate to seek professional assistance.
