Once you begin to suspect that you might have a bed bug problem, it’s natural to feel a sense of unease and a need to ask a steady stream of questions. How did this happen? Where could they have come from? How is it possible when your home is so clean? One truth about bed bugs never changes—the sooner you start bed bug treatment for your NYC home, the faster your life can return to normal.
Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?
Bed bugs can come from any number of places. With so many people using public transit on a daily basis, you can pick up the bugs without knowing. The bugs could have hidden in your bus’s fabric seats and hitched a ride in your clothes. Or it is possible you picked it up in a vehicle: Taxis and Ubers transport many passengers each day, and the bed bugs can lurk on anyone’s luggage, backpacks, and shoes. If you live in an apartment building, these critters can travel through vents, electrical outlets, and under doors from one apartment to other parts of the building—including your personal space.

Do I Need Bed Bug Treatment?
There are specific signs to look for in detecting bed bugs. Do you have itchy bites in a line or cluster, but you don’t know where they came from? Bed bug bites often happen on the arms and shoulders. Can you see small stains on your sheets or mattress that resemble dots of blood? Bed bugs feed at night and tend to leave their mark in your sleeping quarters. Do you detect a musty smell when entering your room? These intruders can release an odor similar to a locker room smell.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Treatment begins with a thorough inspection from your pest control expert. It begins with the canine-sniffing abilities of highly trained dogs that can locate a bed bug infestation within minutes. With a 96%-98% accuracy rate for finding bed bugs within a 3-foot radius, our dogs speed up the inspection process significantly so that treatment can begin as soon as possible.
Over time, bed bugs have become resistant to some pesticides. Our team uses a much more effective method—Cryonite freezing is a non-toxic solution that eliminates bed bugs at all stages of life. Handled by trained professionals, a Cryonite machine emits carbon dioxide “snow,” which is liquid carbon dioxide. This solution literally freezes all of the bed bugs immediately. Using only safe and environmentally friendly products, these experts can rid your NYC home of the unwanted bugs.

How Will I Know If the Bed Bugs Are Really Gone?
One treatment of Cryonite freezing is usually enough to kill all of the bed bugs, even the eggs. A follow-up generally ensures that all of the bugs are gone. If you live in multi-family housing, you will need to notify the property manager right away, as the apartments joining yours and any common rooms should also be inspected for infestation.
If you live in a single-family NYC home, you can rest assured that the problem has been handled in the most effective way, backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Consider the groundbreaking application of Cryonite freezing to remedy any bed bug issues you may have.
