Bed Bug Control In Maryland

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are silent invaders and masters at hiding so they often go unnoticed until they officially become a problem. We are experienced in not only controlling and removing bed bugs but detecting them as well. Our technicians will perform a thorough inspection to come up with a custom treatment plan to fit your needs. For successful bed bug treatments, we will provide you with a bed bug checklist that must be completed to achieve the best success. Most people are under the impression that you must travel and stay in a hotel to get bed bugs, when in reality, they are often found in other common places.

Treatment

Typically, there are 4 treatments, more may be needed, that are every 2 weeks apart. After a treatment, you need to be out of the house for 4-5 hours. All residents, including pets, must vacate the house for 4-5 hours. We also recommend you remove all live plants. After treatment, you should vacuum a day after plus continue to follow bed bug checklist. Some treatments have a faint smell.
