Bed Bug Controladmin2019-04-05T10:49:45+00:00 Call today for an inspection/treatment:Jump Ahead:Got bed bugs? Bite back!
Bed bugs are hitchhiking pests that infest a variety of places. From homes, apartments and hotels to transportation methods and retail establishments bed bugs are everywhere! No matter who you are, handling a bed bug infestation is overwhelming. To alleviate bed bug problems quickly, people often turn to DIY bed bug treatments that are ineffective or even dangerous.
Wil-Kil Pest Control is your best defense when it comes to bed bugs in the upper Midwest, including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois.
Did you know that bed bug bites arent the most telltale sign of bed bugs? Many other insect bites, like mosquitoes and chiggers, look like bed bug bites. Other skin conditions such as hives, eczema and rashes can also resemble bug bites. Many people (about 70%) also dont react to bed bug bites at all.
If you think you have bed bug bites, ask yourself if any of the following scenarios are true before jumping to conclusions:
If any of these scenarios are true, you are getting closer to identifying a possible bed bug problem. Fortunately, bed bugs are not known to carry diseases and their bites are not harmful, just a little irritating. The best way to identify bed bugs is through the physical signs they leave behind.
Bed bugs like to stay out of sight and rest in areas close to people, but not likely to be disturbed regularly. If you think you may have a bed bug issue, here are some things to watch for before you call Wil-Kil for help.
Wil-Kils technicians will thoroughly inspect your entire property for bed bugs. Our technicians will look at areas like headboards, mattresses and bedding, nightstands and even living room furniture for bed bug signs and the actual presence of a bed bug. It is necessary that a licensed professional does this type of inspection, as they have the training necessary to identify if a pest found is a bed bug, or something else. They will also search areas where bed bugs are most commonly found, which may not be something the average person knows. This is the ideal inspection method for single family homes or hotels and apartments where under three rooms need to be searched.
A technician needs to inspect all areas of risk during a bed bug inspection. This can be time-consuming, especially when they are searching multiple rooms in hotels, apartment buildings or other group living facilities such as assisted living facilities or nursing homes. In situations where multiple rooms need to be searched, Wil-Kil also offers canine inspections. The bed bug dogs at Wil-Kil can cut inspection times down significantly due to their keen sense of smell and ability to detect live bed bugs and viable bed bug eggs with a high level of accuracy. Instead of tearing a room apart to inspect for bed bugs, Wil-Kils canine teams can find the bed bugs within minutes, with more accuracy and cost-efficiency when compared to traditional detection methods.
Conventional treatments are localized to specific areas or pieces of furniture that are harborages for bed bugs. Methods include:
Areas must be extensively cleared of all clutter to allow easy access for inspection and treatment, and the property must be vacated both during and after treatment. Conventional methods also require multiple treatments, so an area will not always be cleared of bed bugs immediately.
Bed bug heat treatments (or thermal remediation treatments) are the best method for resolving heavy infestations, particularly in cluttered conditions or those situations where eliminating a bed bug issue fast is critical. Heat treatments may also include a conventional treatment for maximum effectiveness. Wil-Kil will bring industrial-sized heaters into your property and heat your space to a temperature of 120 degrees or above, which kills all stages of bed bugs.
Both people and pets must vacate the premise during the treatment for up to for as long as 10 hours, but once the room returns to normal temperature, it can be used immediately because one treatment solves the problem.
The unfortunate truth is that there is really no way to stop bed bugs from getting inside your hotel. With travelers coming from all over and a high rate of room turnover, there are numerous opportunities for bed bugs to find their way into one of your rooms. The general belief in the industry is that most properties have had bed bugs, and those that havent, will in the future. But there are a few things you can do to reduce your risk:
Bed bugs can quickly ruin a trip by hitchhiking from other guests on to your belongings. This can happen at hotels and even airports. There are a few things you can do to help minimize your risk of attracting bed bugs:
