Posted At: January 23, 2012 1:00 AM | Posted By : admin

Hiring a Las Vegas Pest Control Company:  With the rise of bed bug infestations in the Las Vegas Valley, the most effective way to get rid of a bed bug infestation is to hire a Pest Management Professional (PMP), otherwise known as an Las Vegas Exterminator or Henderson Pest Control Company. Research has shown that residents attempting bed bug control on their own are likely to fail.  When looking for a PMP take the time to do some research and find a company that specializes in Las Vegas bed bug dog inspections and bed bug treatment.  The cheapest may not be the best option and not all pest control operators and technicians are fully trained in bed bug inspections and remediation.

If one bed bug is left behind after your first treatment, your infestation is likely to continue.

Finding a Henderson Bed Bug Pest Control Company

Use the "Find a pro" section Pestworld
, the official website of the National Pest Management Association.

Ask friends and coworkers for recommendations and read testimonials.  Although this might be your first experience with bed bugs, many other individuals have gone through or had the same encounter with bed bugs.

In Las Vegas and Henderson, a PMP must be licensed by the Nevada Department of Agriculture to perform commercial or residential structural pest control.  Licensed Structural Pest Control Companies and Applicators are listed on the Nevada Department Of Agriculture's website.

Questions to Ask the Pest Management Professional
When looking for a Las Vegas or Henderson Bed Bug Exterminator, ask the following questions:

Ask if the company is licensed.
Does your company carry liability insurance?
Is the company affiliated with the National Pest Management Association? (The NPMA has drafted best  management practices for their members to follow).
How much bed bug training and experience does the company and applicator have for both inspecting and treating for bed bugs?
Will the inspection include the entire residence or just the affected rooms?
Will the company utilize a bed bug dog inspection before treatment starts.  If not, how will you (the customer) know exactly what rooms require bed bug treatment?
What is the company's standard procedure for dealing with bed bug infestations?
Does the company utilize Cyronite, Heat, Hepa Vacuuming, Insecticides?
What is the length of the treatment?
Is a monthly pest control contract required to honor the warranty or guarantee.  (Note:  Monthly pest control is not required to eliminate a bed bug infestation).
What are your responsibilities in helping control the infestation?
Ask the PMP if follow up visits, after the initial treatment, are part of the management plan and if they are included in the price?
If a heat treatment is planned, does the company also use a residual insecticide?
What safety precautions, if any, need to be taken during a bed bug treatment?

When you have selected the pest control company that you would like to hire, carefully review the service order or estimate for:
Company name, address, contact information
Details on work to be completed
Insecticides or treatment methods to be applied.  You can researc the insecticides to see if they are labeled for bed bug applications.
Any pre-treatment instructions you will need to follow
Start/end date and dates for follow up visits (if necessary)
Guarantee information

If insecticide products are to be applied, you can request a copy of the product label and copies of the material safety data sheet (MSDS).  Reputable pest control companies will provide these documents and review them with their clients as part of their service contract. 

Preparation for Treatment

Prior to the treatment date follow any instructions supplied by the PMP. Following these instructions is critical for successfully controlling bed bugs and may include:

Laundering your clothing and bedding
Reducing clutter, picking up all objects from the floor
Making physical repairs to your home
Moving furniture and items so perimeter of room is accessible
Emptying closets, bedside tables and dressers
Encasing mattresses and box springs

After the Pest Management Professional has completed treatment, stay in touch with the company and make sure they address all of your concerns or questions.
