Stopping Bed Bugs So You Can Rest Easy

Bed bugs are more than just an irritating pest - they can pose a serious health risk to the occupants of any home or business they make their way inside. Between the itchy, annoying bites they leave and the rashes, allergies, and negative psychological effects they bring with them, bed bugs can turn any sleeping situation into a living nightmare.  If your home or business has become infested with bed bugs, contact RichPro Pest Management for bed bug treatments in Greater Richmond and Central Virginia.

Our Proven Three-Step Process For Fighting Bed Bugs

Step 1: Visual Bed Bug Inspection

After speaking to a RichPro representative, we’ll send one of our trained service technicians to your home or property for a free bed bug inspection. One of our inspectors will carefully check critical areas, including mattresses, box springs, bed frames, dressers, baseboards, and any other high-traffic areas or sleeping spots.

Because bed bugs are more active at night, finding evidence of infestation during the day can be difficult, which is why we take the time to perform as thorough an inspection as possible.

This inspection will be used to determine whether or not bed bugs are present, and if they are, where they’re hiding and how many you’re dealing with. You’ll then receive a quote based on the size and severity of the infestation.

Step 2: Bed Bug Treatment

After inspection, we develop a specific treatment plan based on your individual situation. With our plan in place, we then thoroughly treat all critical areas identified during the inspection in order to completely eradicate bed bugs using the latest mechanical, steam-based, and chemistry-based solutions available.

Our service professionals use steam to attack the bed bugs hiding in the seams of mattresses and furniture while non-repellent residual insecticides and dusts are applied in the crevices of bed frames, baseboards, wall voids, and other critical areas. The treatment stage requires a minimum of three visits over the course of a month to a month-and-a-half.

First Visit: Using a combination of mechanical, steam-based, and chemical solutions, your technician will fully treat all critical areas of the home to kill any bed bugs present. Live bugs found (usually on mattresses and box springs) will be vacuumed up (don’t worry, we bring our own), furniture like couches, chairs, and mattresses will be steamed, and product will be applied to the bed frame, night stands, and other furniture, under baseboards, and inside any cracks and crevices. Finally, your technician will also install mattress encasements on treated beds.

We strongly recommend installing mattress and box spring encasements to provide long-term preventative measures, to be installed following our initial treatment.

Second Visit: Your technician will return to your property to re-inspect and treat as necessary using the same methods as outlined in the previous section.

Step 3: Bed Bug Re-Inspection

About a month after the second visit, your service technician will return a third time for a final re-inspection (at no cost) before determining what step to take next.

What You Can Expect with RichPro Residential & Commercial Bed Bug Control

Why Bed Bugs Love People

Bed bugs are parasites that suck the blood of their hosts in order to survive. Unfortunately, the most common bed bug in the US, Cimex lectularius, prefer to feed on humans, and have developed specific traits that make them excellent at breaking into human homes and businesses in search of a meal - earning them the nickname of “nature’s hitchhikers.”

How Did I Get Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs prefer human blood, so naturally, they’ll do anything in their power to live where you live. Their exceptional climbing ability allows them to latch onto clothing, bedding, luggage, furniture, and more. If you’ve recently had friends or family in to visit, or have stayed in a hotel or motel, you might have inadvertently brought a few unwanted house guests inside with you.

Having bed bugs does not necessarily mean you are unclean or unsanitary, as they are almost always brought into an environment from somewhere else. However, this also means that no matter how clean you keep yourself or your home or business, you could still come under attack if you don’t know what to look out for.

I Have Bed Bugs Or Think I Might. What Should I Do?

If you suspect your property is experiencing a bed bug infestation, follow these tips:

However, keep in mind bed bugs can be in other places around your home where you spend a lot of time resting or sleeping. Bed bugs are mostly active at night but will rest during the day in the cracks and crevices of your bed frame, mattress, or box spring, as well as behind baseboards or furniture.
