Bed Bugs

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.

Something You Should Know! Bed bugs can live up to 3 months with no food and more than 10,000 bed bugs can live in one colony.

Short Term Solution:

  • Visit a local store to get the following.
    a. ‘Bed Bug Certified’ mattress protector.
    b. ‘No Pest Strips’
    *There are bug sprays that will be a very short term fix to spray baseboards. This will only
    temporarily keep more pests out, but is not strong enough to kill all the current bugs and eggs.
  • When you arrive back home, vacuum your mattress and box springs the best you can. Also, vacuum all cracks and crevices around your bed, pull out furniture and vacuum behind as well.
  • Once you have vacuumed the area, put the mattress protector on both the box springs and mattress. Empty cannister or throw away bag when done. *NOTE: This will not kill the pests, but trap them in the mattress or boxspring so they cannot feed or spread.
  • Next, put your bed sheets in the dryer on high heat for 20 minutes. After the 20 minutes wash them in hot water, with soap, and dry on high heat.

Your installers have done an outstanding job so far. The one who treated the house and did the Sentricon installation clearly communicated what he was doing and what to expect. The overall communication and professionalism was outstanding. I would pay premium price to receive this level of service again.

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.
