Something we’ve all known about for a long time are bed bugs, but we never really end up believing they'll 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! Well, life has never been something that goes according to what we want, and when the unexpected does happen, A1 Exterminating Services, LLC in Keego Harbor, Michigan, will be there to show you that everything will be alright. Not only will we completely remove your problem, we ensure it stays that way. From decades of study and experience, we know exactly what works, and what ends up falling short. That’s exactly why when we go to treat for bed bugs, we don’t use heat treatments; instead, we practice what’s known as a steam treatment. This is where we use a steamer to draw the tiny bugs away from their hiding places, forcing them into the light, so to speak, and towards your baseboards. This works because of the heat level of the steam, as it will finish 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 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 issue for a time, 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’ve managed this 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 everything we’ve mentioned before, we do suggest calling around to see what’s truly best for you and your home. While we can guarantee a solution to your problems, we cannot guarantee your peace of mind if you don’t trust us to. 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 create some sleepless nights, we’ll always be right here to help!
