Bed Bug Removal starts with understanding the signs that you have a bed bug infestation. Bedbugs leave several signs, along with itchy and irritating bites. Hopefully, this information helps inform you whether or not you have them.
Our Technicians pride themselves in thorough and efficient bed bug removal treatments. A thorough Chemical treatment should involve 3 separate treatments, as it is unlikely all the bedbugs will be killed in
the initial treatment. A chemical treatment typically takes up to 2 hours per house hold depending on the condition of the house and prep work completed. Once the treatment is complete you should wait until all
the chemicals have dried before re-entering your home, or until our expert says it is safe to re-enter.
Before any treatment please observe the page below for detailed pre-treatment instructions. It is very important to follow these directions closely. Preparing the home properly is a very
important step in any treatment process. Lack of preparation is one of the main reasons that treatment
for bed bugs fail.
We strongly advise to stay with chemical treatments, though it can take multiple treatments to ensure complete exterminations of infestation. Often Heat Treatments follow the same process, no matter how hot a heater gets they can not penetrate the interior walls, baseboards etc. One single piece of paper can drop the temperature between the paper and the floor by 10°F, which could be the deciding factor is one bed bug lives or dies.

On all our three part pest control treatments. Failure to follow proper preparation, procedures or bringing in used furniture during or after treatment may void the service warranty.
Proper preparation is an essential step for ensuring the most effective results from your bed bug treatment. Failure to perform the required prep may result in failure to get rid of the bedbugs themselves, or potentially void your warranties. Though proper prep may be tedious, and require a bit of planning and work at the end of the day it ensures your bed bug population will be exterminated so that you can rest easy in a bed bug free home!
We understand that it can be hard to achieve proper preparations in a short period of time in cases where seniors or peoples with disabilities. In these cases it may require additional assistance and time considerations in place. Though if prep work is not met, ESP cannot warranty the home and will provide three sprays at cost if the customer requests to continue with treatment.
We request that all furniture couches, beds, dressers etc. are moved at least 6 inches away from any wall or baseboard. Access to all baseboards, wall outlets etc. be available for technicians to treat infested areas. This prep process helps us access the best treatment methods to get rid of bed bugs where they live. Contrary to popular belief, bed bugs live within' eight feet of ANY where you rest for long periods of time i.e. couches, love seats, your favourite lounge chairs. This allows them to hide in end tables, jewelry boxes, books shelves etc.
All clothing, drapes and blankets will require being washed or at the very least dried prior to each treatment or sealed until all treatments have been completed. Wash and dry all clothing and linens in the highest possible settings. Again, bedbugs and eggs can sustain life underneath 139°F or 59°C.
Dispose of any bags that you have used to transport them either off property or out of the infested rooms. Only placing cleaned linens/clothing etc into new plastic bags or seal-able totes.
The heat, as well as proper procedures regarding clothing, linen and betting are a key component in the bed bug removal process. Making sure that all linens are run at high heat through the drier exceeding a minimum of 118 °F or 47.78°C for 90 minutes. These steps will ensure the best process to get rid of bed bugs in your home.
The use of your home vacuum to mechanically remove partial amounts of the bed bug population is a large part of the preparation process. Use any narrow-headed attachments to vacuum mattress seams, tags or edgings for bed bug removal. As well as the interiors of furniture, baseboards, and headboards.
Treating these areas where adult bedbugs may be hiding or living makes it easier for chemical treatments to become effective sooner.
We do not upsell products like bed bug encasement for mattresses/box springs. we recommend that the encasement not be used until after the first initial chemical treatment.
Contrary to lazy technicians, and people that tell you that you must throw away all your worldly possessions upon infestation. Please don’t; only get rid of them if you intended to get rid of them before the infestation. Bedbugs are not the be-all and end-all of your worldly possession. You don't need to relocate or throw away what your own for a successful bed bug removal. Our Hamilton pest control company can not only educate you so that hopefully you never have to deal with these pesky buggers, but also treat your infestation to give you back your happy home.
These are not required of you and may actually impede the treatment process if you are not sealing infested materials before dragging them through your home. It allows bed bugs to fall off your mattresses in odd locations in your home where they run the possibility of going dormant.
If you throw out your mattresses consider that the city requires you to wrap them in plastic before they're willing to pick them up.
Maybe consider slashing an "X" in them or your couches so that others don't consider them "Curb-side donations"
After chemically treating couches, box springs, and mattresses you can go ahead and breathe easy instead of throwing out any of your precious belonging. If you really want, you can encase your mattress and box springs with a plastic encasement for extra piece of mind. If you do, look for higher quality plastic encasement on amazon or any other sales company. The cheaper encasement products rip easily and tend to be more of a pain than anything else.
During the treatment, all pets and occupants must be out of the residence. Chemicals will be administered to cracks, crevices, baseboards, mattresses, and other furniture. Clusters of infestation will be HEPA filter vacuum. Furniture will be rotated or flipped on its side. Dust Covers on the furniture will be removed from box springs, couches, chairs, etc. Pesticide-based dust will be applied in cracks and crevices.
Occupants depending on chemical treatment will be required to remain outside of the property between 4-6 hours depending on the pesticide used on the site.
Initial sprays will always be 4-6 hours as we use a pesticide labeled for bed bug nymphs, adults, and eggs. Upon second spray we may use a product with different active chemicals so that the bed bugs do not develop any immunity to the pesticide.
Follow-up appointments should be scheduled in this order.
Initial spray, one week after is your second spray and 14 days later from that date is your third and final spray at the location.
Though your technician is applying top-of-the-line chemicals on your property they do not spot killers. They're not aerosolized, spot killers and have long residual effects. Anticipate after the initial spray you may see a few bed bugs that have been poisoned. They will become incredibly uncomfortable and become more active in hopes they find a safe place before the inevitable pass away to the pesticide.
All if any signs will greatly diminish as you get closer to your final spray.
Though this may seem inconvenient, even the best heat treatment companies often require multiple follow-ups to ensure that the population has been completely eradicated.
