Bed bugs are one of the worst critters, whether they’ve infested your home or taken up residence in your NYC commercial space. All too often, an infestation gets spread from an office to a home and vice versa. Unfortunately, having an office building with bed bugs can cause them to spread and be brought home by those who work in the building. Here’s all you need to know as you get ready to call in a bed bug exterminator company to rid you of this pesty problem.
The most important thing to do when you’ve found bed bugs is to act swiftly! The quicker you get a bed bug exterminator company to your site, the easier and more effective it will be to get rid of your bed bugs. If you’ve found bed bugs, it’s likely that there are more, and you won’t be able to tell how many eggs are present. The longer you wait, the more you run the risk of the bed bugs traveling and starting infestations elsewhere. If someone who works in your office building develops an infestation where they reside, they could potentially bring bed bugs back in—even once you’ve cleared them out of your office. For this reason, it’s best to nip an infestation in the bud, and eliminate the opportunity for the infestation to spread.
Why NY Bed Bug Dogs?
Using bed bug dogs is an efficient way to pinpoint the exact location of your infestation so that your treatment is quicker, targeted, and more cost-effective. Bed bug dogs can smell the bed bugs themselves and are able to hone in on where they are hiding. This is the most effective way of locating bed bug infestations, especially since the dogs are trained specifically for this type of bug. It’s important to have the dogs inspect your building to make sure that all sites of infestation are detected and treated. Know that it’s possible you may have bed bugs in more than one location, so you don’t want to focus on just one office or hallway—our dogs can find out if the bugs are also somewhere else in your building.
What Happens Next?
Once the bed bug dogs have located the sites of infestation, the next step is treatment and remediation. Cryonite freezing is an effective way of getting rid of bed bugs. Gone are the days of harmful chemicals and spending days away from the site undergoing treatment. Freezing bed bugs uses cold temperatures to kill any bed bugs and bed bug eggs. It doesn’t leave any residue, and is completely environmentally safe. It won’t damage carpeting or office furniture, which can be a common concern for office managers. Then we’ll follow up if needed to make sure all the bed bugs are gone, and if we find any additional bed bugs, we’ll finish them off for good.
