Hotel room showing where bed bugs can live

Curtains

If curtains touch the floor or any of the furniture, bed bugs could climb up and live in the curtains. Check the folds of the curtains for droppings and live bugs.

Under the Cushions

Never forget to check under the cushions, in between pillow crevices, and folds of any upholstered chairs. As you are inspecting, pay special attention to the seams.

Behind the Headboard

Bed Bugs often like to hide behind or in the cracks and crevice around the headboards of your hotel room. This is the most common area we find bed bugs in a hotel room.

The Mattress

Always check your mattress, especially mattress tufts and folds for what look like ink stain spots. Bed bugs love edges, concentrate your inspection in those areas.

Along Wallpaper/Paintings

Be sure to check behind picture frames or anything hung up on the wall, if any of the wallpaper is failing bed bugs love to find that little crack and crevice.

The first thing to understand is bed bugs can happen to anyone. The pest can latch onto your clothes or even crawl into your bags. Many people want to sleep in another bed or go to a hotel. This is the worst thing to do. By leaving your own bed, the bugs will seek new places to live leading to a larger infestation and spreading themselves throughout your home making your expense higher in the long run and causing more headaches.
Bedbug Removal

Heat Treatment

Heat Treatment is the only way to get rid of all bed bugs in one day. By heating the entire space up to 150 degrees, we kill all stages of bed bug life from eggs to adult. The heat reaches areas that pesticide cannot. We can heat one room or the entire structure.

Hotels/Motels:

Bed bug infestations with heat minimizes downtime – a room can be back in use the same day, reducing lost revenues. Heat treatments also eliminate the need to remove or replace furniture, fixtures, and equipment due to chemical exposure.

Apartments/Condos:

Heat treatment allows for limited prep work for tenants and staff as well as eliminating bed bug infestations in one day, giving tenants peace of mind. Eliminates multiple follow-up visits while infestation is being eliminated. Reduces financial costs to tenants by allowing most items, large and small, to be treated.

Residential:

Heat treatment allows for limited prep work for homeowners, as well as eliminating bed bug infestations in one day. Eliminates multiple follow-up visits while infestation is being eliminated. Conveniently performed while at work or school.

Chemical Treatment

Chemical treatments can be very effective against bed bugs. Although treatments may last longer than a typical heat treatment, chemical applications, when done right, can and will solve bed bug infestations for usually a more economical price. American Pest uses proven products that will not aid in the spreading of the infestation.

Hotels/Motels:

Bed bugs are hitchhikers and hotels/motels are a perfect location for bed bugs to travel from one site to another just as hotel clients do. Chemical applications are perfect for small infestations where targeted applications can be made for a low cost. When using chemical applications in hotels/motels, this leaves a residual application that will help prevent future infestations for a period of time.

Apartments/Condos:

Just as in single family homes, infestations in apartments can spread from room to room or unit to unit if the problem is not addressed. When using chemical applications, this helps prevent the spread of pests. Chemical applications can be safe and effective when done correctly and with little disruption.

Residential:

Having bed bugs in your home is never a good thing. There are several ways to treat for bed bugs. All of which can be effective if done correctly. Typically heat remediation can be expensive to perform in a home with multiple rooms. This is when chemical applications can be a more cost-effective answer. American Pest Management provides thorough treatments with the health and safety of your family in mind. Chemical applications provide a longer residual to help stop an infestation and keep bed bug from spreading.

Excellent customer service and experience. I recently used your company as a result of a potential brown recluse problem. The customer service representative who answered your Olathe office phones was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The technician who came to my house was very thorough in his inspection, took the time to explain the process and created a comfort level that he cares about serving the needs of the customer. I will go out of my way to refer your company.
