Terminix can help get rid of bed bugs
What is the most effective bed bug control?
Bed bug infestations can come in all different shapes and sizes and can require different methods to control. Terminix bed bug control begins with a thorough inspection of your home. Our professionals are trained to spot the signs of bed bugs and find where they're hiding. Based on what your Terminix professional finds, we will recommend a customized bed bug removal solution to best fit your needs, using customized techniques to eliminate your bed bug problem.
What are some common signs of bed bugs?
Because bed bugs are generally nocturnal and come out to feed when you're resting, seeing actual bed bugs isn't the most reliable way to tell if you have an infestation. Bed bug bites are another sign of bed bugs, but not every person has a visible reaction to them. Some tell-tale signs of bed bugs include bed bug shed skins, bed bug eggs, fecal spots on your mattress and bedding, and small bloodstains on your sheets and pajamas. If you spot any of these bed bug signs, you should contact the bed bug removal specialists at Terminix immediately for a FREE bed bug inspection.
Can you DIY bed bug control?
Bed bugs are notoriously difficult to remove and control. Not only are they good at staying hidden, but infestations can grow very quickly. You need to know where the bed bugs are hiding to properly control them, and failed attempts to do so may result in the infestation growing worse. The most effective route to controlling a bed bug problem is enlisting the aid of pest control professionals. Terminix bed bug removal specialists are trained to inspect for bed bugs and know the proper solutions to use to get rid of them.

"Terminix came out to assist my bed bug situation and they sent a technician out by the name of Shyla. When she got here, she let me know exactly what was going on. She showed me what to look for. She has kept me from pulling all of my hair out. I really appreciate you guys having Shyla on your payroll and doing your service. She does Terminix well, and she's giving you guys a good name. Thank you.”

“I use TERMINIX on a regular basis for different problems. They provide multiple services and their service is excellent. The price is reasonable and their technicians do a good job. When we developed an issue with bed bugs we spoke to multiple services but TERMINIX got the job and we no longer have bed bugs. They lived up to their agreement. Thank You TERMINIX!”

Bed bugs are sneaky. You may never actually see them, but if they are present, you may see such tell-tale signs as specks of blood on your sheets or pajamas, fecal matter that looks like tiny rust spots on your mattress or sheets, and waking up to itchy raised red welts on exposed skin. If you see any of these signs and need bed bug removal, schedule a FREE bed bug inspection.
The cost of bed bug removal from your home varies depending on the severity of your problem and numerous other factors. The best way to determine the cost of bed bug removal is to schedule a free inspection. Your Terminix technician will provide an estimate after the inspection. With a bed bug treatment program from Terminix, we will come back to your home free of charge if the bed bugs return within 6 months.1
Adult bed bugs can be 1 to 7 millimeters long, which is big enough to see with the naked eye. However, bed bugs are experts at hiding, so you might never actually see one. These tiny pests tend to hide inside crevices in your mattress or furniture, emerging only when you or your pets are still long enough for them to feed on your blood.
Bed bugs are parasitic. They suck human blood. They will suck the blood of warm-blooded animals, too, but humans are easier because bed bugs are adapted to feeding on humans. One interesting (and slightly disturbing) fact about bed bugs is that they can live for months without eating. This makes bed bug control a little trickier than controlling pests that will die sooner without a source of sustenance.
After your free home inspection, your Terminix pest professional will confirm with you where the bed bugs are located. We will offer you a customized treatment plan that takes into account various factors unique to your bed bug problem. Because every infestation is different, the recommended treatments may vary, but will be tailored to best attack your bed bug problem. These treatment options may include the use of heat, steam, vacuuming, trapping monitors, or a non-toxic solution to rapidly freeze the bed bugs.
Our Nix Pest Guarantee promises that we will come back to treat your bed bug problem for free if they return within 6 months of the first bed bug treatment.
While bed bugs aren't known to transmit disease-causing pathogens, their bites may be irritating and can even cause an allergic reaction. That's where the chances for harm come in. Excessive scratching may irritate and damage the skin, which can present a risk of infection. Not to mention the psychological tolls on those with an infestation, such as anxiety, stress or even insomnia.
Our bed bug control solutions begin working immediately though you may still see bed bugs for a short period of time after the treatment. After the bed bug treatment, we will follow up to inspect again to ensure that the bed bugs are gone.
It is possible for bed bugs to return after treatment since they can enter your home at any time by being carried in on clothing, luggage or furniture, or from neighboring properties in multi-unit dwellings. However, if bed bugs return within 6 months from the point of your initial treatment, Terminix will retreat – at no additional cost to you1. Schedule your free bed bug inspection with Terminix today.
1If you see evidence of bed bugs in your home within 6 months of your initial treatment date, Terminix will perform an inspection and provide any necessary treatment at no extra cost. 6-month guarantee only available for single-family dwelling units. Limitations apply. See Plan for details.
