BED BUG BEHAVIOR
Bed Bugs are small and are great at hiding in thin cracks. Even if the live bugs can not be seen, activity is generally confirmed by locating sputum (droppings) and castings (skin) they leave behind. When populations are low or ‘new,’ the only identifying method are the bites. Bed Bugs are attracted to heat and carbon dioxide, two things you give off when you sleep. This is why bed bugs harbor at the ‘head’ end of the bed and why bites mostly occur above the waist. A bed bug infestation can be incredibly stressful and can affect people physically with visible bite marks, as well as psychologically. Insomnia, poor sleep, social concerns, negative reactions from friends and relatives all can be issues. We understand, and that is why our first step is inspect to confirm activity, and consult with our clients. We discuss pros and cons to each service, educate our clients, and most of all, listen. Versa-Tech provides the best service to kill bed bugs tailored for each client’s unique needs.

WE OFFER 3 TYPES OF BED BUG TREATMENTS
While each Commercial or Residential bed bug treatment method is effective and can be used together, each service has its place and we customize bed bug treatment services to suit your needs.
1. CHEMICAL TREATMENT
A Chemical Bed Bug Removal Service is an incredibly detailed and invasive service for eradicating bed bugs. It treats every crack and crevice, tuffs and folds, structure baseboard areas, carpets, outlet, and switch cover. It covers every applicable item and every bed bug hiding spot. A Chemical Service requires the most preparation for our clients. The ability to prepare and the number of items will determine if a Chemical Treatment is the best service. Chemical Treatments are the most common used because of the lower service cost and residual. The biggest benefit to a Chemical Treatment is the residual that gets left behind. The residual will be effective for up to 90-120 days. Residual is important for clients who are exposed to bed bugs or the possibility of bed bugs on a regular basis. Healthcare workers, caregivers, police and firefighters, pilots, bus drivers, and anyone who travels often are more susceptible to re-infesting the location. Chemical Bed Bug Treatments allow clients to be back in the same or next day.
2. TENT FUMIGATION
Tent Fumigation for killing bed bugs is best for larger homes, heavy activity levels, or locations with a lot of items. With a Los Angeles County Tent Fumigation there is minimal preparation required in comparison to a Chemical Service. For clients who cannot prep or do not want to, Tent Fumigation is a great option. Tent Fumigation is a more costly option for bed bug removal. It does not leave a residual and requires the location be vacated for five days. A Tent Fumigation also has a collateral benefit as it will also remove any pest from the location such as rodents, termites, and other insects. Tent Fumigation cost is determined by the cubic square feet of a location.
*Disclaimer – Please be advised that Versa-Tech® partners with the highest rated tent fumigation provider to eliminate bed bugs through it’s tent fumigation service.
3. HEAT TREATMENT
A Heat Treatment is a great service for eliminating bed bugs in smaller service areas like a storage container, hotel room, dorm room, or other similar locations. A Los Angeles County Heat Treatment is the most difficult service to administer and is usually preceded by some type of chemical service. Temperatures at the core areas must reach 120 degrees. For locations that do not allow chemical use, a Heat Treatment is recommended. Heat Treatments are generally used in commercial settings but have a place in some residential services. Heat treatments are more costly than Chemical Treatments, and about the same to a bit less than Tent Fumigation. With a Heat Treatment clients can re-enter the next day.
