Our Low Prep Bed Bug Treatments
Bed bugs used to be only in our nursery rhymes for most of us alive today. You remember “good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite”. Until recent years, many of us thought it was a myth because we had never seen a bed bug or knew anyone that had been bitten by one. Unfortunately, now too many of you know what they look like.
Bed bugs had been largely eliminated from the United State by the middle of the last century because of the widespread use of pesticides. Since then, many of those products have been named from the market such as DDT and chlordane, because even though they were deadly to the insects, there were undesirable effects to other organisms, including people. Bed bugs started garnering attention in the United States again in the early to mid-90’s. Some of the factors that have contributed are the amount of increased international travel that the people of the world are engaging in. Secondly, the pest control industry has changed with the support of manufacturers, We used to be an industry that believed in “spraying” everywhere we could, rather than an industry that is more “insect-specific” and our treatments are much more targeted in placement and pests to be controlled.
Innovative Pest Management can control your bed bug problem, in the most effective and convenient way to you and your family, with our low to no prep bed bug control program. Innovative Pest Management is one of only 20% of the pest control companies nationwide that offers low to no prep bed bug control services. These statistics are taken from conversations at the National Pest Management Association Eastern Region meeting in Jan 2016. Conversely, 80% of the pest control companies that you call are going to do certain things to prep for your bed bug treatment. Some of these include: removing all clothes from dresser drawers and at a minimum run them through a hot dryer cycle, any items stored on floors, boxes, and bins should be empty, remove items from nightstands, entertainment centers, etc., all furniture should be free of items so that chairs and tables can be maneuvered to be treated, and closets should be emptied and accessible. That’s almost like having to move out of your home and having to move back in again. Most of you are much too busy to have your lives disrupted and having to move back in again. You are already stressed enough by having bed bugs and the additional prep work only adds to your stress level. Our low to no prep bed bug control comes with our guarantee that we will come back every 2 weeks until there are no bugs and no bites. Then, we’ll give you a 4-month warranty after that. You can still protect yourself with our bed bug insurance program.
