3 Steps of Bed Bug Treatment From Oahu’s Best Exterminators, Wahiawa, Hawaii

Bed bugs are a common household problem. According to the expert exterminators at Aloha Termite & Pest Control in Wahiawa, HI, these wily creatures represent a tough challenge both to homeowners and contractors as they’re very good at burrowing and hiding in furniture. When you have an infestation, hire Aloha Termite & Test Control as soon as possible for careful, quick, and dedicated bed bug treatment.

These exterminators explain the steps and process of bed bug treatment:

  • bed bug treatmentIdentification: Bed bugs are tiny vampires that suck the blood of humans when they are sleeping at night. These critters are visible to the naked eye, although very small—usually between one-fourth to five-eighth inches long. They are characterized by a reddish brown, oval shaped body. During the day, they’ll hide in any place that offers isolation, darkness, and security. When searching for them, look under mattresses or box springs and in crevices of walls, wooden furniture, and couches. They tend to hide close to those they feed off of, and an infestation is often characterized by fecal and blood spots on pillows and sheets.    
  • Pre-Treatment: If you have or suspect you have bed bugs, there are some measures you can take to mitigate the issue. Clutter should be removed as much as possible. Launder all bed sheets on a high temperature and consider using special encasements for mattresses, as well as Nuvan Strips, which are safe insecticides that can be used in furniture or in bags of clothing to kill the bugs. Also vacuum the area, especially in corners, cracks, and crevices.
  • Extermination: Professional bed bug treatment involves the coordination of a variety of techniques. Exterminators will tell you the measures you need to take, while also applying high-powered insecticides to the affected areas. Depending on the scope of the infestation, it may take some time or several visits for the treatments to work. After the service, the contractor will follow up to ensure you’re free of all bed bugs.
