Don’t Let the
Bed Bugs Bite in Texas

If you've been waking up in the morning covered in what appear to be mosquito or flea bites, then there's a good chance you have some unwelcome guests in your home. These bites could be a sign of an infestation of Bed Bugs, as they prefer feeding during the night while you sleep. Bed Bugs are small wingless insects that look either white, light tan, dark brown, or burnt orange and generally take shelter in dark places.

 

Due to this inclination for dark places, bed bugs typically prefer to nest where people like to sleep, like beds, bed frames, mattresses, and box springs. Having a cluttered room provides bed bugs with additional hiding places, so keeping areas organized helps prevent an infestation. Additionally, pet owners who have pet bedding in their homes can experience a bed bug problem with their animals. Not only can humans and animals experience red itchy skin and allergic reactions from these insects, bed bugs can also transmit disease.

 

These unwelcome pests can often infiltrate your home through luggage, furniture, pillows, clothing, boxes, etc. Generally, if you're purchasing used furniture, ensure you inspect it beforehand as there is the possibility of bringing home bed bugs that have already made their nest inside.

Man’s Best Bed Bug Inspector

Should you suspect that you have an infestation of bed bugs in your home, Pest Management, Inc. has a noninvasive detection method with our K9 bed bug detection services. Much like how dogs can be trained to detect bombs and other foreign substances, this new innovative bed bug detection method has a 97% accuracy rate. We're proud to say that we were the first adopters in Texas of this method of organic pest control.

Sniffing Out the Bed Bugs

While bed bug detection might be difficult for humans because of our reliance on visual inspections, which isn’t the most reliable method due to bed bugs being able to hide in the cracks and crevices. However, with our bed bug detecting dog we can rely on the dog’s powerful sense of smell for a more reliable means of inspection. These highly trained dogs are capable of searching entire rooms in about three minutes.

Highly Trained K-9

Our bed bug detecting K-9 has gone through over extensive training by Master Trainer Bill Whitestine. Through this training program, our dog has learned how to pinpoint any adult bed bugs and their eggs. If a bed bug infestation is discovered, our human staff will go in for extermination. Once treatment is administered, the dog will do a confirmation sweep.

Thermal Heat Remediation

Pest Management, Inc. is one of the first Texas pest control companies to have bed bug exterminators employ thermal remediation. This eco-friendly approach isn't just good for the environment, but it's also practical, requiring only one treatment without pesticides. With a proven 97% effective rate, using thermal remediation involves raising the affected structure's temperature to 130 degrees Fahrenheit for three hours. Since bed bugs have a heat threshold of 113 degrees Fahrenheit, this will kill bed bugs at all stages.
