Bed bugs are small, wingless insects that feed solely upon their hosts’ blood.

Since bed bugs live in a variety of places, a one size fits all approach will not work in controlling them. So, before any sort of treatment, we’ll inspect, review and recommend multiple solutions that are available to bring your bed bug problem under control. We take a sensitive and sympathetic approach recognizing how emotional and stressful a bed bug infestation may be.
Treatment will usually begin at the focal point of the infestation, which is generally the bed in an infested room. This will be followed by careful treatment of all items in the vicinity, including baseboards, floor/wall junctions, tack strips under carpets, behind electrical outlets and switches, cracks in walls and floors, items hanging on walls and relevant structural voids.
