    Same-Day Bed Bug Extermination!

    bed bug solutions in Kansas city | Blue Beetle Pest Control

    Bed bugs hide in small crevices and often hitchhike in luggage, furniture, clothing, and boxes. Used furniture such as mattresses and bed frames are among their favorite places to live. Bed bugs are hard to find in the beginning of an infestation, and even more difficult to completely eliminate from your home or business without professional help.

    The movie theater, the bus, a doctor’s office, and even your friend’s house are just a few of the many places you can pick up bed bugs. Unfortunately, keeping your home clean is not much of a deterrent for bed bugs. They only need one thing to live – human blood.

    When it comes to bed bug extermination, all treatments aren’t created equal. The heat treatment is quick and highly effective while the spray treatment will require more than one application. Both treatments are offered with a warranty period to ensure your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.

    Bed Bug Heat Treatment

    Our bed bug heat treatment is the best solution for same-day elimination. Our heat treatments have a 99% success rate and are backed by a 60 day warranty.

    We’ll start with a thorough inspection to confirm bed bug activity in your home. After confirmation, we use discreet, portable equipment to heat your home above 125 degrees for at least 90 minutes. Fans circulate the heat to reach all of the cracks and crevices bed bugs may be hiding. Throughout the treatment process, our heat specialists will monitor the temperature throughout your home to ensure all rooms are being heated properly. We combine our heat treatment with a chemical application so that any remaining bed bugs you could potentially bring in from your car or your work are eliminated as well.

    Our heat treatment process does require you to be out of your home for about 8 hours, but you’ll come home to the peace of mind knowing you’re bed bug free!

    Bed Bug Spray Treatment

    Our spray treatments require much less preparation than a heat treatment, but the treatment process is much longer. Retreats are required every two weeks and depending on the level of infestation, can take up to two months for total elimination. However, with patience and excellent preparation, spray bed bug treatments are a budget-friendly solution that do work.

    Bed bugs hide within a 15 foot radius of where you sleep or sit the most. In the middle of the night is when they leave their hiding places for a blood meal. As they travel to you, they’re picking up the spray on their feet. When they return to their hiding place, they lick themselves clean and ingest the particles. Bed bugs only have to feed every seven days, and we have to wait for the eggs before the spray will affect them as well. This is why a spray treatment can be such a long process.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Bed Bugs

    How to identify bed bugs?

    Adult bed bugs are about the size of an appleseed. They are reddish-brown in color and have flat, round bodies. After feeding they become elongated, plump, and more red in color. Nymphs (baby bed bugs) are almost translucent in color, while eggs are white and smaller than a grain of rice.

    Bed bugs can be picked up anywhere people sleep or sit for long periods of time – homes, apartments, hotels, movie theaters, public transportation, and even hospitals. They can hitch a ride to your home in your suitcase, purse, or in your clothing.

    Where should you look for bed bugs?

    Catching an infestation early on is critical.

    The longer bed bugs are in your home, the harder they are to get rid of. That being said, bed bugs are known to be professional hiders, so finding them in the first place is a challenge in and of itself. They may be found:

     In mattress or furniture seams
     In the crevices of bedside tables or headboards
     Inside electrical outlets
     Behind picture frames or loose wallpaper
     Underneath the carpet up against the baseboards

    It’s unlikely that bed bugs will be found in areas like the kitchen or the bathroom. They are ultimately lazy bugs that don’t like to travel, so they’ll wait in or near the couch or the bed until about 3 to 5 AM, which is when they come out to feed. Even if you happen to have a bed bug or egg on your clothes, which you leave on the bathroom floor or throw in the closet, they will eventually leave the area to be as close to your resting areas as possible.

    Since bed bugs have survived for hundreds of years by hiding, it is inevitable that sometimes you just won’t find one. There are a few other tell-tale signs you can look for:

     Blood spotting on sheets – when bed bugs feed they often “void” they blood they’ve ingested in order to make room for more
     Fecal spotting in hiding areas such as in mattress or furniture seams – this spotting looks like black pepper that will smear if you try to wipe it.
     Egg shells/molted skin
     Waking up to bites that are like small hard welts, usually in clusters of three or four on the arms and shoulders

    Do bed bugs bite?

    Yes, bed bugs can leave red bites on your skin.

    Although bites are a sign of bed bugs, they shouldn’t be the deciding factor. There are many other pests that leave a similar irritation on the skin, such as carpet beetle larvae, which even look similar to bed bugs. Also, the bite marks are an allergic reaction to the bed bug’s saliva, and not everyone is allergic, which is why if a home is infested with bed bugs, it seems as if some residents get “bitten” and some don’t. The reality is, the bed bugs are likely feeding off everyone in the home.
