World Pest Day Brings Awareness This Summer
Every homeowner wants to maintain and protect their property, to keep it looking its best, and to make sure that it does its job efficiently - A job that includes: protecting your family, your memories, and your personal belongings. One of the best ways to accomplish this is through professional pest control services! American Pest uses the safest and most advanced technologies to protect Calverton, Maryland homes from a variety of nuisance and damaging pests, including bed bugs, mosquitoes, ticks, insects, rodents, and many others!
Something that no homeowner wants to wake up to is red, itchy bites caused from bed bugs. Bed bugs cause a lot of stress and anxiety for homeowners because, let’s face it, no one wants to go to bed knowing they are going to become a buffet for blood sucking parasites! Believe it or not there is good news when it comes to bed bugs. There are fast, effective treatments available to get rid of bed bugs from your home that will allow you and your family to get a good night’s rest before you know it.
American Pest quickly and safely gets rid of bed bugs using heat. Heat is an extremely effective treatment that kills all stages of bed bugs. Another benefit to using heat is that it is extremely safe and environmentally responsible- no chemicals are used. Heat is also non-invasive; usually only one treatment is needed and re-entry can happen very quickly after the treatment is complete.
Heat treatment begins with an inspection by our trained inspectors who will sometimes employ one of our K-9 inspectors; our K-9 team is used a lot to help identify the presence of bed bugs if homeowners are uncertain of an infestation. If it is determined that an infestation is present, we will treat the infestation with heat (heat remediation).
Specialized mobile heating units are installed and monitored by our professionals to increase and maintain the air temperature in your home to be between 120°F and 135°F. The hot air is circulated through your home penetrating walls, floors, bedding, mattresses, box springs, furniture, and other items killing all adult bed bugs, nymphs, and eggs. One day, one treatment, no bed bugs!
Other services that American Pest provides to control bed bugs include conventional pesticide treatments and mattress and box spring encasements.
Both insects and rodents are determined pests. That is, they are determined to invade your property and enter your Calverton home in order to forage for food, water, and shelter.
