Bed Bugs in Your Business?
Bed bugs largely disappeared from the developed world in the 1940s, mostly due to
pesticide treatments. But they're back in a big way. Over time, bed bugs acquired a
resistance to pesticides, and international travel made now allows them to hitchhike
to the U.S. from the infested parts of the world. But there's no reason to panic. Clark Pest Control's highly trained force of technicians wield commercial bed bug treatments that will send them packing.
Act Fast to Eliminate Infestations
Not only can bed bugs travel around the world, but these appleseed-sized, bloodsucking
insects are very good at moving from place to place—from a hotel room to
your office, or from that flea market find to the rest of your workplace. Once bed
bugs enter your business, they begin multiplying—and one female bed bug will lay
one to five eggs a day, or an average of 120 eggs in its life. Once hatched, these
hordes of juvenile bugs, or nymphs, will reach adulthood in just three weeks. Then
they'll seek out blood meals from you and your colleagues by zeroing in on the
carbon dioxide you exhale—and laying lots of eggs. This becomes a big problem in
Bed Bug Treatment Options:
These can be used independently, or in combination with any other treatments:
- Heat remediation: Bed bugs can’t stand the heat – especially above 120° F. We'll prepare your room/s by ensuring everything exposed to heat is opened up or positioned properly for maximum effectiveness. Then Clark technicians will place industrial-powered heaters to raise the temperature room by room to kill bed bugs and their eggs. An on-site technician monitors the rooms to make sure they're hot enough.
- Steam: Our technicians carefully treat every surface, cranny, crack and crevice with bed bug-destroying hot vapors or steam, making sure that no bed, piece of furniture or other object in a targeted room is left untreated.
- Conventional Pest Control: Sometimes the most effective bed bug treatments are materials with a residual, or longer-lasting, effect, like applied liquids or dusts. We deploy these with you and your employees foremost in mind.
- Fumigation: Serious bed bug infestations require tented fumigation, where our Clark Pest Control technician oversees the work of a licensed fumigator.
Through our inspection service, we'll monitor your business for bed bug activity after the treatment to prevent re-infestations. After all bugs and eggs are destroyed, we'll provide documentation and instructions on how to keep your space free of bed bugs.
