Bed bugs are commonly mistaken for other pests. Often, we get calls from homeowners saying they have a problem with fleas or roaches. When our technicians arrive for an inspection, they discover the problem is actually bed bugs.
Signs of a bed bug infestation include:
An increase in travel and resistance to products used to kill bed bugs have contributed to the increase in the bed bug problem, both in the United States and around the world. Bed bugs hide on school buses, airplanes, and hotel rooms, hitching a ride in your luggage or child’s backpack and ending up inside your home. Once inside your home, they are often found in mattress seams, curtains, bed frames, and along baseboards.
Eradicating bed bugs successfully requires a unique approach that includes both safe chemical treatments and heat. Our technicians use heat and fans to circulate the hot air and help the heat penetrate into all the hidden places where bed bugs run to escape chemical treatments. The heat treatment works by destroying bed bugs in all stages of their life cycle.
In addition to destroying bugs at all stages of life, the heat makes the remaining bugs more susceptible to the chemical treatments used to kill them and keep them away. We use a combination of heat methods with safe, environmentally conscious products for bed bug control in Merritt Island. When you trust the job to Green Wing Lawn and Pest Services, you can rest assured that the products we use are safe for your family and pets.
Bed bugs are something nobody wants to deal with. Luckily there are scents that we find enjoyable and pleasant that bed bugs, and other pests, hate. These scents contain what is called linalool, which is used in many pesticides and naturally produced by hundred of different species. Bed bugs and other insects can't stand the stuff. The most common scents that you can use to repel bed bugs are: lavender, mint, cinnamon, basil, and citrus. Simply sprinkle scented oils or use sprays of these scents where pests are known to commonly hide in your home.
