7-Step Bed Bug Treatment System
Our seven-step bed bug elimination system combines the following services to get the results you need:
- Steam machines: The most recommended method for bed bug elimination, steam can kill bed bugs at all stages without the use of chemicals.
- Insecticides: For advanced infestations, chemical applications may be necessary because they can target hard to reach areas.
- Bite-proof mattress encasements: These are helpful for protection against entry and escape of bed bugs on all sides of a mattress.
- Canine services: Specially-trained dogs can sniff out bed bugs with greater accuracy than visual detection by humans.
Bed Bug Steam Treatments
A great tool we use at Interstate Pest Management is our steam treatment machines. Like heat treatments, steam treatments use heat to kill bed bugs at all stages, including eggs. But unlike bed bug heat treatments, steam doesn't have to heat the entire room. The steam is focused specifically on the area where bed bugs are present, penetrating the surface, killing bed bugs that may be hiding in cracks, crevices, and underneath the fabric. Steam treatments are an environmentally friendly bed bug treatment option and is safe on your hard and soft furniture.
