Bed bugs are all over the news these days. From the upscale hotels on the east coast to the dorms of Oklahoma State University, the bed bugs are biting. The prevailing thought is that, after decades of effective bed bug control in America, bed bugs are coming with travelers from Asia and Eastern Europe. With more than 50 years of Oklahoma pest control experience, we know what it takes to keep you tucked in, sleeping tight without the bed bugs biting.


Bed Bug Facts and Information

Bed bugs usually bite people at night as their victim sleeps. They feed by piercing the skin with an elongated beak through which they withdraw blood. Bed Bugs tend to bite us on any part of the body, whereas mosquito bites are usually on the feet and ankles. They will suck for up to 10 minutes before retreating from your skin to digest their
new meal.

Bed Bugs in Oklahoma are about 3/16 of an inch long with reddish-brown, flattened oval bodies. They are sometimes mistaken for ticks or cockroaches. Bed bugs do not fly but can move rapidly over floors, walls, ceilings and other surfaces on their way to feasting on your blood.

What is the best method of bed bug control? Believe it or not, some people try to protect themselves by applying conventional insect repellents. Mosquito and tick repellents are ineffective as bed bug control, and you won't fool them by sleeping with the lights on either.

The most successful bed bug control method involves the proper application of heat. We're not talking about turning up your thermostat. Call our bed bug control experts today. We'll have you or your guests
sleeping soundly!

Studies show that bed bugs, in all life style stages, can't survive heat over 122°F.

The process starts by applying heat over 122°F and not to exceed 135°F, we then monitor using wireless sensors to ensure the temperatures are lethal enough to the bed bugs but not harming the current atmosphere or bed. Lastly, we move air using high powered fans to make sure we get the heat into all cracks of the bed to make sure every last bed bug is gone.
