A Threat To Residential And Commercial Properties
Bed bugs have been invading homes and commercial properties across New England for centuries, with a recent surge within the last 10 years. Bed bugs are one of the most disturbing pests because they consume blood from human hosts while they sleep. The hitchhiking nature of the pest strikes fear into multi-residential, hospitality, and residential property owners alike. Bed bugs can readily move from different locations, quickly spreading infestations across multiple bedrooms, apartments, and hotel units.
What To Do If You Have A Bed Bug Problem
The first step in handling a possible bed bug infestation is scheduling a complete inspection of the structure to properly identify the pest in question. Bed bugs multiply rapidly, which means prompt and decisive action can be the difference between saving and costing homeowners thousands of dollars.
Bed bug problems need to be handled by a professional. Over-the-counter and do-it-yourself treatments are proven to be ineffective and can actually spread infestations, making the problem worse.
JP Pest Services provides customized elimination and prevention methods for residential, commercial, and multi-residential properties. Our specially trained service technicians will first perform an inspection of the structure to properly identify the pest. We always recommend that surrounding units or rooms of an infested property be inspected also. After a thorough inspection, customers are provided with a recommended treatment, control, and prevention plan that will be reviewed in full.
Given the nature of this pest and the complications of treating and controlling bed bug infestations, each plan will be customized based on the individual needs of a situation and structure. Though we follow a standard treatment protocol, the implementation and execution may vary based on infestation levels.
JP Pest Services has developed award-winning and nationally recognized control methods, including thermal remediation (high-heat treatment) and natural or traditional pest control materials for the effective treatment and prevention of bed bug infestations. We also use the following essential products to supplement our control plans:
Mattress ProtectorsMattress protectors give your box spring and mattress complete protection for a healthy, allergy-free sleep zone. The encasement will guard against dust mites, allergens, and bed bugs.
This product is an effective tool to measure, monitor, and identify bed bugs. Monitors are installed under bed posts to create a barrier between the floor and bed. Approaching bed bugs will attempt to climb up the exterior surface of the monitor to reach their blood host (humans) but will become trapped in the outer ring; bed bugs climbing down from the bed become trapped in center ring.
