One thing we’ve all known about for a long time are bed bugs, but we don't always end up expecting them to become a part of our daily lives. Those are the bugs you hear about from a friend, or a family member, but never would it happen to us! Unfortunately, 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 all will be alright. Not only will we completely remove your problem, we ensure it stays that way. From years 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; instead, we utilize what’s known as a steam treatment. This is where we use a steamer to draw the bed bugs out, forcing them out of the dark, so to speak, and towards your baseboards. This works because of the heat level of the evaporating water, as it kills off any bed bugs that decide to remain and sending the rest away. Second, we lay down both spray and powder chemicals along the baseboards, to ensure not a single one will 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 issue for a little bit, but whenever 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 the system we have in place for bed bug treatments – no one size fits all. The gist of it is that if we see 1-20 of the little things, 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 around to decide what’s truly best for you and your home. While we can get rid of your bug 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 elated 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!
