Effective treatment of bedbugs requires servicing all areas where these pests may hide. It also requires a high level of cooperation from the customer.
Treatment by Mighty Pest Control
The initial service is very intensive and consists of:
Inspection and identification of areas to be treated (usually living-room and all bedrooms)
Crack and crevice treatment of all furniture in treatment areas (using a combination of insecticide and insect growth regulator)
Treatment of floors with liquid insecticide and insect growth regulator
Insecticide dusting inside plastic mattress covers installed by customer (see Customer Requirements below)
Fogging with ULV (ultra-low-volume) machine
Three additional monthly followup services are done, each consisting of:
Careful inspection of treatment areas to determine whether control has been achieved
Inspection stations (glue boards) may be used to augment the inspection process
Retreatment of cracks and crevices or other areas as needed (as determined by the inspection)
Required Actions by Customer
Without complete customer cooperation, effective treatment is impossible.
The customer needs to do the following things in preparation for the initial service:
All customer preparation work should be done before the service technician arrives to avoid delays and additional charges
Clean out all dressers, nightstands, wardrobes, closets, etc. Leave drawers removed from furniture. Clothing should be washed and dried (on high heat) and then placed in sealed plastic bags or garment bags. Do not put back into the dressers, closets, etc.
