Bed Bugs Biting In Your Ithaca, New York Home? Call Sweeney’s Pest Elimination!
Bed bugs may be part of a nursery rhyme, but they’re also a very real pest that has been a growing problem for homeowners all over the United States. Because they hitchhike around on people’s clothing, bags, and boxes, it’s nearly impossible to prevent a bed bug infestation from happening. If you suspect that bed bugs are in your home, quick action is essential. Contact Sweeney’s Pest Elimination for bed bug control that works.
Our Bed Bug Control Process
We begin by performing a visual inspection to confirm that you have a bed bug infestation. Our technicians are experts in knowing where to look for signs of bed bug activity.
If bed bugs are present in your home, you'll need to do very minimal prep work before we provide treatment. We will need you to remove all clothing on floors and/or hanging on furniture, remove all sheets, blankets, mattress covers, pillowcases, etc. and run them through a high heat cycle in the dryer for at least 40 minutes. Also, any items on the floor will need to be bagged up. Do not place items back until after treatment. It is not necessary to remove any clothes or items from shelves, drawers, or cupboards unless these items are visibly infested. There are just a few more important steps to take to ensure a successful treatment so we've created a bed bug preparation sheet that will be provided to you and it can also be found here.
We use a liquid residual treatment on baseboards, beds, furniture, and wherever we find signs of bed bugs. We also use this same residual treatment around all outlets which helps prevent bed bugs from traveling from room to room.
A second treatment is necessary to eliminate your bed bug infestation. This service takes place one week after the initial treatment and additional fees apply. However, if more follow-up visits are needed, we will keep working until your bed bug infestation is gone.
