Sound Solutions for Bed Bugs
October 13, 2017 Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are a year-round problem for residents in South Florida. They are known best for hitchhiking their way around and can spread very quickly. They can easily move from place to place by hitchhiking on the clothes or luggage of people who are traveling. Which is why some of the most common places to find bed bugs are in hotels, college campuses, hospitals, and even public transportation.
If you find bed bugs in one area of your home, it is possible that they’ve already spread throughout the rest of the rooms. Some people may think if you stay away from the area they are found, it will keep them from spreading throughout the home. This is false. Bed bugs will spread quickly and can live in your home for up to a year if there is no treatment. Some residents try home remedies, but these can only stop bed bugs for so long. These remedies will soon become just a “band-aid” for the problem and you’ll need a professional treatment to stop the infestation completely.
At Nozzle Nolen, we offer two very effective and environmentally-safe treatments to get rid of your bed bugs.
The first treatment is our heat treatment. The heat treatment can be used in single units or even a single room in a multi-unit building such as an apartment complex or a condo. This process will eliminate all stages of the bed bugs, both the eggs and the adults. The treatment is usually a six to eight-hour process, and you can be back in your home by the end of the night! However, the heat treatment will not work if there are large amounts of clutter throughout the home. If you have a lot of belongings in one area, like a ton of jackets and boxes stuffed in a closet, the heat will not be able to penetrate thoroughly enough to reach the desired temperature.
The second treatment offered is a fumigation treatment. This is the best option for single unit homes. If a fumigation is done to an apartment, the entire structure would need to be fumigated as well. The fumigation treatment is similar to the treatment that is done for drywood termites. With fumigation, both stages, the eggs and adults, will be eliminated for bed bugs and termites. You will also be given a one-year guarantee for termites if this method is performed in your home. How about that? The fumigation process requires 3 days to complete. You might be skeptical of this process, but our technicians will make sure that your home is safe before allowing you to return. All of our services are 100% green and environmentally friendly, so your belongings will be safe throughout the process.
Here at Nozzle Nolen, we offer both of these treatments for residential and commercial structures. Our team will help you in deciding which treatment will be best for you depending on the type of structure and the severity of the infestation.
