Bed bugs have become a major threat for residential and commercial property owners in Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia. These pests went dormant in the past 60 to 70 years due to the widespread use of DDT, but resurgence has taken off since the late 1990s. Entomologists speculate that the reemergence of bed bugs may be due to increased international travel, the ban on DDT and a higher resistance to currently used pesticides. Bed bugs pose a significant risk and challenge to homeowners and businesses alike. That’s why American Pest has developed an array of bed bug services to help owners of residential and commercial properties in DC, Columbia, Bethesda and all of Maryland and Northern Virginia combat their bed bug problems.
Even a minor bed bug infestation can disrupt day to day operations at work or in your home. Infestations are also very difficult to eradicate without proper treatment. American Pest has several bed bug treatments to offer for all levels of infestation for property owners in DC, Baltimore and Columbia as well as all of Maryland and Northern Virginia.
Mattress and box spring encasements are the best protection a bed has against bed bugs, especially in hotels with a high occupancy turnover. The encasements can be zipped shut to keep bed bugs out which will ensure your mattress and box spring will not need to be thrown away in the event of an infestation.
The traditional method for the elimination of bed bugs, conventional pesticide treatments target the insects where they are likely to dwell after bed linens and clothes have been laundered. The baseboards, along with cracks and crevices in the walls are sprayed with an EPA labeled pesticide that is guaranteed to eliminate bed bugs on contact. Some furniture may also be treated, including bed frames, bureaus, and nightstands.
