A few phrases we hear all the time from customers are these: "The bed bugs are only in one room." "Only my roommate was bit so can't we just treat that bed?" or "I only get bit on my couch, do I have to throw this couch away?" "We just threw away all the beds we are still getting bit." "This is a brand new Bed." I'm sure by now you can see where this post might be going. All these phrases contain faulty logic about these pests. Look at the adjacent image.--> of a home recently treated in the Chandler Gilbert area. This is a white chair in an office 15 ft from the room where the bed bugs were last sited. Fifteen Feet Away! You can see the dead bed bugs laying on this chair. Bed Bugs were also found dead near family room couch 35' ft away and in the window sill of the master bedroom about 40' ft away. These dead bugs were found after the heat treatment was completed. For this home bed bugs were "only seen in one room". Bed Bugs were hidden from human view until the treatment was completed. This is why we only Give our 1yr warranty when the entire structure is treated. "My roommate is the only one bit". First of all this does not mean she was the only one bit (note previous post about bed bug bites) because some people have absolutely zero reaction to the bites so they could be getting bit and never have any marks or signs of bites. This phrase also does not make this roommate the guilty party for bringing the bed bugs home nor does it mean they are contained in one room. If you have been getting bit for more than a few days or weeks most likely there are bed bugs in other places of the house by now and it only takes a few to inbreed and rebuild a nest in the home. Next: New furniture. New Furniture is never a deterrent to bed bug infestation nor does it mean that it was not existent upon purchase.....though we are always grateful to hear of your new purchases :-)! Throwing away furniture has 2 problems one is that bugs are in other places than just the items you threw away and secondly the furniture containing the infestations are transferred providing free rides for bed bugs seeking new hosts. Many Goodwill Stores have been shut down due to these types of donations. In Conclusion if you have been bit or have seen bed bugs chances are they are not in one place. Secondly avoid donating furniture or leaving furniture to others (find a way to burn it) spare others the grief. Be careful picking up furniture at donation centers like Goodwills or Salvation Army sites. Heat Treatments on the entire structure is the only guaranteed bed bug eradication method.

Bed Bug Treatment Types
Heat Treatments the Best Bed Bug Killer
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. Since all eggs and bugs are eliminated they cannot come back. We guarantee our work for one year. What is more green than heat?

We also send a bed bug sniffing dog to verify complete eradication of the bed bugs. If you are plagued with a bed bug infestation and have tried many of the above options already contact us now and stop wasting any more time, money, and getting bit. Even though we offer Chemical treatments we only recommend Bed Bug Heat Treatments. This is absolutely the best way to kill bed bugs.
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.
DDT and Bed Bugs
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 (WWII) when it was used for controlling malaria and typhus saving millions of civilians and troops. In 1948 a Swiss Chemist by the name of Paul Hermann Müller discovered that DDT was an excellent poison to eliminate arthropods. At the conclusion of WW2 the use of DDT became widespread and the Commercial, Industrial, and Agricultural insecticide became widely available. At the same time of DDT's Growth there was an equal resistance waving the flag of Environmental concern. Danger on the environment, Bird egg-shell thickness, and Human Health were the major concerns of its use or misuse. The voice of those who cried foul on the use of DDT increased through the years. In 1967 the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) was created with the specific purpose of banning the use of DDT. The debate got hotter after DDT was studied for a time and it was concluded that there was no imminent danger to wildlife or human health. This increased criticism and controversy on the subject. In 1971-1972 A seven-month hearing was conducted over the use of DDT and in the summer of 1972 a ban of the substance was decreed in almost all its forms. This post takes neither position on DDT and its effects nor on the effects of the bed bug outbreak. The violent increase of Bed Bug infestations in the United States has raised questions as to effects of banning DDT. Regardless if DDT is a banned substance or not, if you have a problem with bed bugs you need to get help now! The only effective technique for bed bug removal, extermination, and eradication is an All-Natural, Green, Bed Bug Heat Treatment performed by professionals.
