  Delk Pest Control has an established history of putting together bed bug treatment options for all types of properties including apartments, care homes, college dorms, hospitals, hotels and single family homes. Our dedication and research has led our team to be recognized as one of the top bed bug treatment companies throughout the United States. In 2009, we became one of the first companies locally to offer K-9 inspections and heat as an option for controlling bed bugs. We have hosted educational seminars throughout the state to inform the public about the outbreak of bed bugs and how to protect themselves and their properties.

  A bed bug can live over a year on a single feeding. Due to their high reproduction rates and their ability to hide deep into cracks and crevices, they are known in the industry as one of the hardest pests to control. Only heat, fumigation and extreme freezing can be used to kill the egg stage of the insect. Live bed bugs can be extremely difficult to find. Be on the lookout for their droppings, and skin that they shed. Have a Delk Pest Control licensed technician identify the problem and recommend treatment options. If signs of bed bugs are not visible, we are able to conduct our K-9 inspection to aid us in pinpointing a possible bed bug problem.

 CHEMICAL TREATMENT

Our chemical treatments are typically very effective. This is our first defense against controlling the infestation of bed bugs. This process is usually performed 3 times over a 45 day period with 2 week intervals. If needed, Box spring and mattress encasements are installed on all beds within the structure on the initial visit.

HEAT TREATMENT

  Our heat treatment lasts a total of 6 to 10 hours depending on the size of the property. This is our second defense against bed bugs if our chemical treatment doesn’t effectively neutralize the infestation on its own. Temperatures are remotely monitored throughout the treatment process by using sensor probes that are placed in multiple areas and readings are sent to us via a heating application. Alerts are set for rapid response to the job site.

FUMIGATION

Fumigating a structure is our last yet most effective defense against controlling the infestation of Bed bugs. At this level it goes beyond just bed bug control but actually a total pest eradication for your whole home. Vikane Gas fumigant offers the best results for the control of bed bugs. The key for this service option to work effectively is major cooperation from the occupants and tenants.
