When you have bed bugs in your NYC home, you want them gone fast and completely but many times those treatment options contain hazardous chemicals. A trustworthy bed bug exterminator company can rid your home of these pests while also protecting the environment.
How to Identify Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are a tiny reddish bug that can infest any home and are not picky when it comes to where they end up. Contrary to popular thought, they are not more common in homes that are not clean but can be found in any home as they travel on you or your items.
At night they emerge to bite your arms and shoulders and sometimes your legs but you typically won’t feel it as their saliva acts as an analgesic to numb where they bite. Your indication that there are bed bugs will be the small bite marks they leave behind on your skin that will become itchy over time.
Bed bugs can live in the cracks and crevices of your bed frame, mattress, box spring, and floor molding. Because they are so difficult to see and can be in multiple places of your home, it can require several treatments to rid your home of the bugs.
Where Bed Bugs Come From
Bed bugs can travel with you from the airplane, the bus, and the Uber ride home—any place that has fabric surfaces with cracks where they can hide. Sometimes they can come from a hotel room where you leave your suitcase open and they hide among the clothes inside.
They can ride on your suitcase, shoes, purse, and backpack to find their way into your home without you ever knowing because of their tiny size. Trying to spot them is nearly impossible.
How a Bed Bug Company Eliminates Bugs
Their dogs: The green bed bug company starts an inspection with their highly trained dogs who can sniff out the bed bugs within minutes. Along with their handler, these dogs can pinpoint exactly where the bed bugs are to within two feet and are 96-98% accurate with their superior sniffing skills. Without the dogs, it can be quite difficult to identify the bed bugs exact spots.
Their green approach: Their green solution is completely non-toxic and can be used safely in any space. It is dry and leaves no residue once treated which can be ideal for sensitive environments. The rooms can be immediately occupied since there is no waiting time.
Cryonite treatment: Cryonite is a non-toxic bed bug treatment that eliminates the bugs in all stages of life, from adult to egg. The Cryonite machine emits a carbon dioxide “snow” that freezes the bed bugs wherever they are in the room. The frozen snow is cooled to a temperature of -110 degrees so that no bed bug can stay alive.
Why Cryonite is better: Bed bugs can become resistant to chemicals over time and those chemicals can harm you, your family, your pets, and the environment while cryonite freezing is recycled carbon dioxide that occurs naturally in the environment and therefore will not harm the earth.
Bed bugs cannot become immune to Cryonite like they can to chemicals which means that it will always kill the bugs no matter how many times they are treated and it will never harm the environment.
