Bed Bug Control
Bed Bug Detection and Treatment Services Toronto – Hamilton – Mississauga – Brampton – Kitchener – Guelph – Niagara Falls
Bed bugs are everywhere in this country. They are entering our cities and ports from destinations around the world, infesting and affecting our work, play, and living environments on a daily basis.
Eviction Pest Control prides itself on being experts in bed bug remediation. Using a variety of techniques and treatment processes (depending on the situation), we are able to successfully eliminate bed bug infestations in your home or business. We start with a thorough inspection with one of our certified bed bug canines to locate bed bug activity. Once we have located their active hiding spots, we plan out the most effective treatment.
A big part of our success comes by working with the client throughout the entire remediation process – from inspection to post-treatment procedures. We don’t just show up, put some chemicals down, and take your money. Instead, we work with you from day one to help you understand the process, and learn what you can do to assist with the remediation, as well as to avoid infestations in the future.
About Bed Bugs– Bed bugs are small, oval insects that live in dark spaces close to their food source to feed at night. They range in size from 1/4″ to 3/8″ long and are mahogany or red-brown in colour. They are quite often described as being similar in shape to a small apple seed. Bed bugs were widespread before World War II in homes, hotels, and boarding houses. They are becoming widespread again mainly due to an increase in international travel, immigration from the developing world and a developing resistance to pesticides.
Bed bugs commonly reside in the seams of mattresses, in the edges of carpeting, in the bed frame, behind baseboards, window and door casings, picture frames, loosened wallpaper, and cracks and crevices. They can enter a structure by attaching to clothing and bedding, and by hiding in luggage. Beg bug bites often show up as sores and welts, and can cause allergic reactions in some people. Although no known cases of the transmission of infectious disease have been reported, bed bugs are known to carry at least 28 different human pathogens. Bed bugs may be able to transmit Hepatitis B, as the virus has been found in bed bug droppings. Bacterial infections may also occur if the bite creates an open sore.
