The Louisville Pest Professionals You Need to Call with Your Bed Bug Problem

October 23, 2019


No city is safe from the reaches of bed bugs. Even Louisville, Kentucky is susceptible to bed bugs infestations. These small pests can travel in suitcases and in clothing, and they can live even in the cleanest spaces. When they come into an area, they multiply quickly and can cause horribly itchy bites that last for days. And they are incredibly difficult to get rid of and are never worth fighting alone. Thankfully, we here at Action Pest Control know how to find, identify, and eliminate bed bugs.

Do You Have Bed Bugs?

You may notice that you have a bed bug problem because you wake up with bites. Bed bug bites are often found in a line and can be small, red bumps. These bites are often found around clothing lines but can be anywhere on your body.

You may be able to identify a bed bug infestation before you get bitten. You may not see the bugs themselves, as they are very tiny and good at hiding. However, you may see evidence of bed bugs left on your mattress, box spring, bedding or pillow. This could be shed skin, dead bugs, or fecal matter. If you see dark spots on the bed or on furniture, take a closer look. Keep in mind that bed bugs don’t just live in beds; they can be found on couches, in carpets, and even in wooden drawers.

K-9 Bed Bug Detection

Humans have a hard time finding bed bugs. These pests are skilled at hiding. If you have bed bugs, it can be difficult to know how many and how spread out they are. This is where dogs come in. Our K-9 team has been trained to successfully sniff out bed bugs in all stages of development. This can help us identify an infestation and understand the scope of your bed bug problem. We then will create a treatment plan that eliminates bed bugs in every room they’ve infested. Dogs are much quicker at finding bed bugs, and more efficient. They can sniff through walls, floors, and furniture, to find bed bugs in places humans can’t see.

Bed Bug Heat Treatment

Using a heat treatment to eliminate bed bugs is far safer than chemical methods. Our heat treatment is quick and usually eliminates all bed bugs in a single day! It doesn’t leave dangerous residue or damage furniture. Heat treatment is more effective than chemical treatments because it kills bed bugs in all stages of development. This means you won’t have a resurgence of these bed bugs after we’ve treated.

Effective Bed Bug Relief

The most effective bed bug treatment combines our heat treatment and our K-9 team. These highly trained dogs can locate bed bugs quickly and accurately, allowing us to apply heat treatment in the correct areas. With a quick and precise treatment, you’ll be able to return to your home the next day. Dogs can also be helpful after treatment to ensure that each and every bed bug has in fact been exterminated. With Action Pest Control, you can be sure that when you return home you won’t be returning to any more disgusting bed bugs or uncomfortable bites.
