While bed bugs are not directly linked to any adverse effects, they cause frustration to those that share the same bed with these blood-sucking critters. Bed bugs almost always feed when their host is sleeping. They can feed continuously for several minutes. When they are done, they can leave a red mark on the skin, similar to the one of a mosquito bite.

WHAT IS BED BUG CONTROL?
BED BUG EXTERMINATION
Bed bug control or extermination can be conducted using several methods. In some cases a combination of treatments is necessary to effectively reduce a bed bug population. Bed bugs in Toronto are exceptionally hard to remove, these unwanted house guests multiply faster than you might believe. Which is why we’ve adopted and execute the latest in powerful bed bug detection and extermination. The most efficient, safe and effective means to treat for bed bugs in Toronto is to combine several methods and use safe insecticides registered with Health Canada.
When properly applied will kill all life stages of a bed bugs, including eggs. Every steam treatment is applied after thoroughly cleaning of the rooms to be treated. Steam treatments have their limitations, as they can be effective only in places where the steam can actually reach.
Conducted using portable heating systems that generate conventional heat in a room. Bed bugs are exposed to temperatures of over 45C. Heat treatments also have their limitations. Applying heat in a room can push the population in adjacent rooms. High temperatures can also damage other articles in the space. You can kill bed bugs by placing certain items in your dryer in high heat.
Chemical treatments are considered to be the most effective way to deal with bed bugs. We use pesticides as licensed exterminators and as part of integrated pest management techniques. They are most effective when used by licensed exterminators who are familiar with bed bug behaviour and use pesticides according to the pesticide label. Several pesticides can be used for the treatment of bed bugs:
Liquid insecticides to treat specific spots, aerosol insecticides for treating cracks and crevices, dust formulations are applied in electrical outlets and inside wall voids, and foam formulations can be used depending on the need, on various surfaces. It is advised that you contact us for any such treatment.
Thorough cleaning, vacuuming and washing floors and furniture is an essential step of bed bug control.
HOW DID I GET BED BUGS?
Bed bugs usually enter your home by hitching a ride on clothing, luggage or used furniture. In some cases they can travel from adjoining structures. They find shelter in cracks and crevices in floors, walls, furniture and of course mattresses and bed frames. At night, and when you are in bed, they come out their hiding places and make their way to feed. Bed bugs are not necessarily related to unsanitary conditions, anyone can get them and they can thrive in even the cleanest environments.

BED BUGS BITES
Bed bug bite marks do not appear immediately after the insect has bitten. Sometimes they can take a couple of days for the symptoms to be visible. They are small redish marks that can often be very itchy. They are often grouped together in a small area on your skin. In extreme cases they can blister or create small hives.
SMEAR MARKS AND EGGS
Seeing insects themselves is a good sign you have a problem. Other common signs include small red or black marks on your sheets or bedding. The red marks are blood marks while the black ones are excrement.
BED BUG INFESTATION
A bedbug infestation is one of the last things you would want on your property, whether it your home or your office. However, if you are already facing one, the only surefire way to get rid of these nasty pests is to hire the services of a professional exterminator. Before you do so, however, it is best to run a check on whether you truly have an infestation, or if it is only a few bed bugs that are causing you trouble, in which case a few immediate control measures can work too. A bed bug infestation will only get worse. The longer you leave the problem unattended the worse it will get.
HOW TO HIRE THE RIGHT BED BUG EXTERMINATOR
BED BUG PREVENTION
Good housekeeping practices will detect most infestations and prevent them from spreading but cannot always prevent them from entering a home. Filling cracks and crevices, and openings such as around water pipes and electrical outlets. Repairing wallpaper and electrical outlets can also help reduce their hiding places. The most important prevention tactic is to be careful not to bring them into your living space the first time around. When you return from a trip you should double and triple check your luggage and clothing. Always check any piece of used furniture and clothing for signs of bed bugs. Bed bug prevention methods should always be taken in consideration especially if you live in an active area or building.
HIRING THE RIGHT BED BUG EXTERMINATOR
With so many companies offering bed bug control services finding the right bed bug exterminator can be a difficult undertaking. It is not only the number of companies but also the many types of treatments offered in the market today. Here are a few things to keep in mind when doing your research on bed bug treatments:
BED BUG CONTROL IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE
You do not need the very latest and greatest technology to kill bed bugs. Using complicated and often very costly techniques is not necessary. While bed bugs can be resistant to certain insecticides they are not to others. Complicated heat or freeze treatments are simply not necessary. A combination of insecticide and steam is sufficient to solve most bed bug problems. Do not waste your money on fancy treatments.
HIRE A LICENSED BED BUG EXTERMINATOR
Make sure that the company you hire employees licensed exterminators. Not just licensed technicians. There is a difference. Technicians generally work under the supervision of exterminators and while a technician can perform an extermination you should be getting your money worth when hiring a company for a bed bug treatment. Licensed exterminators have more training and hands-on knowledge.
AFFORDABLE DOESN'T MEAN LESS EFFECTIVE
The cost of a bed bug heat treatment is much higher than a straightforward insecticide and steam treatment combination. Heat treatment rigs cost thousands and a business needs to recoup the cost. Their higher cost also reflects their popularity. Proper preparation on the customers side and proper technique on the exterminators’ side can make sure you don’t have to deal with bed bugs again without spending an arm and a leg.
ASK FOR A GUARANTEE
Every pest control treatment should be guaranteed. While theoretically, pests can make their way back into a dwelling a proper extermination company will protect you from such occurrences at least for the first few months after the treatment. Don’t believe the myths that it is impossible to guarantee an extermination. Keep in mind an insecticide treatment is far more effective in protecting you against insects in the long run. A written guarantee keeps the pest control company honest and you safe against scammers.
TWO SERVICE PROCESS
A proper bed bug treatment is a two-visit process. The first visit is designed to kill most of the insect population while the 2nd visit to make sure any surviving insects or hatchlings do not make it to adulthood. Any and every reputable company will offer the second service. From a customers perspective, the most “intrusive” visit is the first one as that is when the bulk of the work takes place. The second visit followup is to make sure the premises are entirely bed bug free.
NO DOGS NEEDED
Again, there is no need for fancy and costly inspections. You either have bed bugs or you don’t and while trained pest control dogs can detect them so can you, so can I or anyone else who knows what to look for. If the signs are there, then well you have bed bugs. If you keep getting bitten a quick inspection by an experienced exterminator will give you a definite answer. Bed bugs hide in pretty much usual places, under your mattress, in your bed frame, box spring etc.
DO NOT THROW YOUR FURNITURE OUT

Look Beyond the Bed
Just as their name suggests, bed bugs most commonly invade beds. That is because the bed is where most people sleep. Therefore, bed bugs can crawl out from their hiding place and seek out your blood as a meal as quickly as possible. Bed bugs prefer to stay as close as possible to their human host, and the bed is the best place for that.
However, you should also look beyond the bed. The bed is not the only place where bed bugs will hide. Knowing where to find bed bugs can help you determine if you have an infestation on your hands.
Places bed bugs like to hide include:
- Furniture: Search upholstered furniture throughout your home, particularly in your living room. People often spend a majority of time in their living room watching TV or simply relaxing. Search chairs, couches, and ottomans thoroughly for signs of bed bugs. It is important that you check every crack and crevice using a bright flashlight.
- Pet Areas: If your pet has a pet bed, make sure you check those, too. Although bed bugs prefer humans, they are not against feeding off your pet, too. Short haired pets are particularly at risk. Keep pet bedding regularly vacuumed and cleaned to avoid a bed bug infestation.
- Wallpaper: Bed bugs will also hide behind wallpaper if necessary. Their goal is to stay out of sight so they are not prone to harm from their enemies, which is humans. You might be their source of food, but you are also their biggest threat.
- Outlets: Look for signs of bed bugs in electrical outlets. To stay out of sight, bed bugs will sometimes hide within your walls or ceilings. They use the outlet as an entry and exit into your room. You may notice streaks of excrement or even live bugs crawling in and out of the outlet.
At the first sign of an infestation, do not hesitate to give us a call. We are more than happy to help you treat your home or business to ensure it is bed bug-free and stays that way.
