Effective Solutions For Bed Bug Problems In Homes & Businesses
Simply throwing out the mattress in the infested room will not exterminate bed bugs. To completely get rid of bed bugs, whether you only see a couple of bugs or are dealing with a major infestation, professional treatment is necessary. At Witt Pest Management, we offer highly effective bed bug treatment options that will take care of these pests in homes and businesses.
Bed Bug Heat Treatment
Complete structural heat treatment to rid your space of bed bugs.
Witt uses a safe, natural, non-toxic method that eradicates bed bugs using an exclusive and 100% effective heat system. Our process works by introducing heat, circulating it and gradually raising and maintaining the temperature to the lethal level to destroy all stages of bed bed bugs, eggs to adults.
We use remote sensor technology to monitor, measure and record ambient air temperature, ensuring proper heat saturation and penetration to all areas, including the furniture and other contents. Our complete structural heat treatments circulate clean, dry, odorless heat that reaches into all the cracks and crevices where bed bugs often hide, but where pesticides can't always reach.
Integrated Treatment for Bed Bugs
Comprehensive bed bug extermination and follow-up for one fee
It is extremely difficult to eradicate bed bugs. That's why our standard service includes the necessary products and follow-up visits for one fee. During our initial service call, we conduct a detailed inspection of the affected and adjoining rooms and devise a treatment plan that entails a targeted treatment of bed frame, mattress, box spring, furniture behind baseboards, switch covers and other areas where the pests tend to hide. Bed-bug proof box spring and mattress encasements are available for extra protection. We then will provide a series of follow-up visits over the course of 4-6 weeks, designed to coincide with bed bug incubation periods.
Integrated Treatment for Bed Bugs - ECO (ITB-ECO)
Comprehensive and Eco-sensitive bed bug extermination and follow-up for one fee
With this option, we are one of the first companies in our area using a newer product called Aprehend® invented by a research team out of Penn State University as the primary product to provide the residual bed bug protection. Not only is this a completely new product offering, having been recently registered in the state of Pennsylvania, it also involves a specialized application method with specific equipment. Aprehend is a non-toxic biopesticide that is composed of Beauveria bassiana fungal spores sprayed strategically in narrow bands where bed bugs are known to walk. Areas include along baseboards, in and around the bed frames and furniture, sofas, chairs, pipes, conduit, wiring, cracks and crevices, etc. In addition, Witt technicians will also apply a natural dust formulation in any void spaces such as wall voids by treating outlets and other crack and crevices leading to potential pockets of bed bug harborage.
Bed bugs of all life stages, sex or feeding status are killed within four to ten days following short-term contact with a treated surface. The fungal spores germinate within 20 hours of contact and then penetrate the cuticle of the bed bug and colonize inside, resulting in death.
