One thing we’ve all known about for a long time are bed bugs, but we never really end up expecting them to obstruct our daily lives. Those are the things you hear about from a friend, or a family member, but never would it happen to us! Well, life has never been something that goes according to our plans, and when the unexpected does happen, A1 Exterminating Services, LLC in Keego Harbor, Michigan, is here to assure you that everything will be alright. Not only will we completely remove your issue, we ensure it remains that way. From decades of study and experience, we know exactly what works, and which techniques end up falling short. That’s exactly why when we go to treat for bed bugs, we don’t use heat treatments; as a proven alternative, we utilize what’s known as a steam treatment. This is where we use a steamer to draw the bed bugs away from their hiding places, forcing them into the light, so to speak, and towards your baseboards. This has proven effective because of the heat level of the steam, as it kills off any bed bugs that stick to their hiding spots and sending the rest away. Second, we lay down both spray and powder chemicals along the baseboards, to ensure not a single one can make it out to reproduce. The last part requires a second visit, and it’s one of the only times we truly suggest it. Bed bug eggs are unaffected by the steam; they’re even safe from the chemicals! Only one visit will rid your problem for a little bit, but when those eggs hatch you’re right back where you were in the beginning. The best part about the entire process is that when you pick A1 Exterminating Services, LLC over other services, you’re actually choosing the cheaper option! We’re able to keep it that way because of our price structure we've got in place for bed bug treatments – no one size fits all. The gist of it is that if we see 1-20 bed bugs, it’s safe to assume there are around 100 of them; but if we see around 100 - it’s a safe bet to assume you’ve got to deal with approximately 1,000. In the end, we’re not going to charge you for a service you’re not getting the full extent of. On top of that, we do suggest calling our competitors to see what’s truly best for you and your home. While we can guarantee a solution to your problems, we wouldn't be able to guarantee your peace of mind if you don’t trust it of us. Call around and see for yourself; we have a history of success and customer retention that speaks more for itself than we ever could! If you’re ever around the Keego Harbor area and you need some help with bed bugs, give us a call and we’ll be more than happy to set up an inspection with you. Remember, although bed bugs can be a giant hassle to remove without the proper knowledge, we’ll always be right here to help!
