Honest answers from an
experienced Las Vegas Pest Control Company.
How should you choose a bed bug
exterminator? Your decision should NOT be based on price alone! You truly
need to research and ask questions.
What to Look for When Researching
1. Make a list of a few companies and
then visit their websites to do some preliminary research. Look for red
flags like "free bed bug inspections", preparation instructions,
wording like "guaranteed with a contract", etc.
ask a lot of questions.Ask about the warranty.It should be 90 days, sometime 45
days is okay for multi-unit dwellings. Every bed bug must be eliminated or your
infestation will continue.Based on bed bug biology, you don’t want a service
with NO guarantee and you need more than a 30 day warranty.We highly recommend
a really good warranty, with NO contract.It’s simply not needed.
1.The pest control company
actually provides bedbug elimination; not just a control service or spray
treatment (that's for monthly pest control, not bed bugs).Not all exterminators treat bedbugs as they are very
difficult to eliminate, so double check that the providers being considered
don’t just apply chemicals like is done for monthly pest control or you may end
up paying a lot of money for just chemicals to be applied. Once you mention bed
bugs, many companies will charge quadruple the amount, make you do a lot of
unnecessary prep work and just do the same service as for ants and cockroaches,
but just spray more.
2. The pest control company needs to be fully
licensed to do business in the home or business's state.Nevada requires city, state,
county and a pest control license to conduct services.Ask for proof. Many
carpet cleaning companies will state that they can eliminate bed bugs with
cleaning the carpets. Do your research.
pest control companies use methods that truly eliminate bed bugs.Pest
control for bed bugs requires many different methods which include bed but heat
treatment, vacuuming, steaming, monitors, encasement's, chemical treatments,
sometimes all of those methods need to be used.You need to find one company
that offers ALL
of these methods.
4.Make sure that you are
not asked to throw out your beds and furniture.It’s an additional expense and
you will have to go months and months without furniture.
information about bed bug extermination from a Las Vegas Pest Control Company:
After your initial research, ask:
1. What specific techniques will the company
use (spraying, heat, steam, etc.)?
2. Will a detailed bed bug inspection be done
prior to quoting a price? If the company can give you a quote without
inspecting that’s a huge red flag.Hang up and move on to the next company.An
inspection is a must.Remember you get what you pay for.If a company does free
bed bug inspections, that’s another red flag.A good company will charge for
services.If it’s free; ask why?Most likely they will just add the cost onto the
3. How many services are included?Traditional
bed bug elimination often requires multiple treatments. (that’s why you needed
the warranty over 30 days…mentioned above).
4. Do you need to vacate the home?If the
company states you need to vacate overnight; yet another red flag...again, hang
up and move on to the next on your list. Why would you have to vacate
overnight for bugs?Could be because the company doesn’t have the experience and
is going to apply way too many chemicals.If it is bed bug heat treatment that
is being used, again – NO reason to ever vacate overnight; unless the company
is staying in your residence overnight to work and monitor temperatures.Again,
ask A LOT of questions.
Preparing For a Bed Bug Treatment
Proper preparation for bed bug elimination is
very important.You absolutely do NOT have to wash, dry, bag EVERYTHING in your
home or move furniture away from walls.If the company’s preparation list says
you need to – how come?What if you do all of that preparation and a bed bug is
still alive in your items?You bring the bags back in and you bring bed bugs
right back in again.
Also, if you’re asked to remove, wash and dry
everything – are you going to have to repeatedly do it every time they come
back?Sounds like a lot unnecessary work.
