These Bed Bugs were found during one of our routine inspections in Phoenix Arizona and Mesa Arizona. Both were Caught and Killed on the Ceiling. This Brings up the topic of what in the world would a Bed Bug want with the ceiling? To answer this question it's important to know how they locate their host. It's simple, Bed Bugs find their nightly blood meal via heat and Carbon Dioxide. The Ceiling is a natural path to finding your carbon dioxide cloud. Once they are above you they fall from the ceiling to land upon their host and start feeding. This occurs more often when the bed bug nest is not near a place of feeding. Bed Bugs this size also clue us in that these bed bugs have been there a while.
There is a wide range of differences between Bed Bug Treatments and each will vary in it's cost, property loss, and bed bug killing effectiveness.
The most common but not guaranteed bed bugs treatment is Chemical. Chemical Bed Bug Treatments have the single benefit of being inexpensive per treatment. We do not recommend these. The problem is that it takes multiple treatments and you never no how many, often times 4-8. Bed Bug Eggs are Chemically impenetrable by most treatment products and chemicals. Bed Bugs and their nest oftentimes live deep within a couch or bed mattress making the bugs difficult to reach. The outcome is that the bugs sometimes are not reached by chemical and the eggs are unharmed and continue to hatch. This is why chemical treatments are a gamble if they work then you saved money, if they don't work then you get bit physically and financially and you will need another type of treatment costing more money. Not to mention you will get bit during this 6-14 week process and have heavy chemical sprayed on your bed and home that will soak in and dry for a few hours then you sleep on that. We are okay with this if you are okay with this. But as a general rule we are not okay with this. Other variations of chemical bed bug treatments are bed bug dust and bed bug spray or sprays that are sold through your local do-it-yourself pest control distributors as well as online gimmicks. All of these produce the same outcome. The bugs die and go away for a while but a few eggs or bugs remain and begin to build the nest again and you may start to see a few show up around 3 weeks after the last treatment. Oftentimes the home owner will end up needing to throw out couches and beds. This will slow the bugs but wont stop them. After you have tried everything call us and we will guarantee our Bed Bug Heat Treatment se Heat Below.
Fumigation Bed Bug Treatments. A Fumigation Bed Bugs Treatment has the same problems as chemical because after-all a heavy chemical in a gaseous state is used in your home. A circus tent is used to drape your house and a gas is filled into the home. Fumes are a bit more effective then a traditional chemical bed bug treatment because fumes penetrate a little bit deeper to kill the bed bugs. The down side is that this is far more expensive, not guaranteed, may take multiple treatments, and not very discreet. We do not recommend a fumigation bed bug treatment.
Steam Bed Bug Treatment. A steam treatment is very effective at killing bed bugs and their eggs BUT only if it can directly contact them. The problem is that the moisture that is left as a residue from this treatment provides an even better mating and breeding ground. Steam doesn't always reach the bugs or eggs and they will continue to hatch. One of the biggest downfalls of Steam is damage and loss to property. The steam is blasted at an extremely high heat and can destroy belongings quickly. Steam Bed Bug Treatments are also not guaranteed and we do not recommend them. Steam treatments should not be attempted without the correct equipment.
Heat is the best way to kill bed bugs. The structure or site is heated to a temperature and then sustained for a time killing all bed bugs, and bed bug eggs. This treatment is completely safe for all belongings and you get to keep all your furniture with this type of process. Heat penetrates every nook and cranny killing every bug and egg in its wake.

Here is an ABC 15 News Report on Bed Bugs. Our Bed Bug Division recommends that each person who is infected with the plague of bed bugs would definitely seek affordable options first. Further we warn that the failure of do-it yourself chemical treatments will prolong removal of the bugs and increase the overall cost of complete eradication. The problem with trying to solve a bed bug problem on your own is that the eggs are chemically impermeable to most chemicals, Bed Bugs are small and are sometimes not reached by powders and liquids, the females are laying up to 5 eggs a day and these pests have an exponential inbreeding mating potential. Definitely try it yourself but when you find that it is not working and you've tried everything, and you've already shopped online to buy some gimmicky bed bug product and found that it also does not work then call us. We perform a professional All Natural Heat Treatment that eliminates all bed bugs and eggs in one day. Our Service comes with our One year Guarantee if the entire structure is treated. Our crew is knowledgeable, clean cut and efficient at bed bug eradication. We also send in the K9 Canine Bed Bug dog sniffing crew to ensure elimination.
There are many that hold the opinion that bed bugs have been on the rise due to the banning of the DDT Pesticide. DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) is a tasteless and almost odorless compound that was synthesized in 1874. The Chemical didn't begin to see widespread use till World War 2

Bed Frame Bloody from Bed Bugs
This was the Same Mattress a little further down that is blood from the host on the mattress, the bed bugs were feeding on him and he said he would wake up in the middle of sleep and slap the bugs till they were gone. This is not typical because Bed bugs use a anesthetic to numb the point of entry site so you cant feel them. Oh and they like to take their blood meal at about 2-5 am during your deepest hours of sleep.

What do Bed Bug Bites Look like? It is difficult to say exactly what a bed bug bite looks like because skin reaction, body types, and sleep patterns vary from person to person. While one person may experience severe redness, burning, itching, pimple looking spots, white dots surrounded by redness, rashes, or even a black head in the bite, the flip-side may be that a person could get bit and show absolutely no sign of bites. It is important to note that bed bugs inject an anesthetic upon penetrating their host numbing the person to the intrusion. Bed Bugs often take their blood meal in the deep of night when a person is in their deepest sleep. In the case of the gentleman on the left, the bed bugs were caught in the act feeding in the morning only on his left ankle(picture of the bed bug specimen below). The bed bugs were discovered in a bed in a room that was closest to his left ankle. This picture was taken this morning at one of our Free Bed Bug inspections. This Gentleman was bit all up his leg with some of the pimple looking bite marks.
