What is Spray and Prep Treatment?

Spray treatment (or chemical treatment) is the conventional way of dealing with bed bugs on a property. It’s a simple yet effective method that utilizes pesticides in small areas infested with bed bugs. Aside from its immediate effect on the adult bed bugs, spray treatment still keeps on killing bed bugs for up to several weeks after the initial treatment because of the residual product.

Many people are skeptical about getting their homes treated with the spray and prep method because of the pesticide. However, most pest control companies ensure that the pesticide they use is safe for humans, pets, and the environment.

At California Bed Bug Exterminators, our IPM-based methods ensure that we only utilize EPA-registered pesticides. This ensures that the products are effective in eliminating bed bugs without harming you and your family.

EPA-registered pesticides used for bed bugs usually fall into seven chemical classes that work differently in killing these pests. Here are the seven classifications of bed bug pesticides according to the EPA:

  • Pyrethrins and Pyrethroids
  • Desiccants
  • Biochemicals
  • Pyrroles
  • Neonicotinoids
  • Insect Growth Regulators

Eliminating Bed Bugs: The California Bed Bug Exterminators Way

Here at California Bed Bug Exterminators, we develop customized treatment plans to help clients eliminate the bed bugs in their property. Our bed bug removal services start with a thorough inspection of the property to determine the severity of the infestation and find out if a spray treatment is the best solution.

Once our extermination team completes the bed bug inspection and determines that a spray treatment is the right method, we discuss the full details of the findings and the treatment plan with the property owner. They’re also given a list of things to prepare before the team arrives to perform the spray treatment. Residents and property owners are often asked to:

  • Wash and dry the clothing and linens before the treatment. All these items should be sealed and zipped in secure storage to avoid re-infestation.
  • The beds must be stripped until the mattress and box spring are exposed.
  • Store away all artworks that might be damaged during the treatment.
  • All surfaces should be cleaned and vacuumed, especially cracks and crevices.
  • The drawers and cabinets should be opened and emptied of clothes and linens.
  • Throw away all the clutter that isn’t needed anymore.

After the spray treatment, our team contacts the residents once it’s already safe to stay in the unit. We also provide clients with a list of post-treatment instructions to keep them safe after the extermination and help prevent the bed bugs from returning to the property. We also inform them about the follow-up treatment and monitoring schedules if necessary.

Everything You Need to Know About Bed Bugs

What do bedbugs look like?

Bed bugs are small pests that are often confused with fleas and small cockroaches. These critters have flat, oval-shaped reddish-brown bodies that swell when they consume enough blood from warm-blooded animals. Adult bed bugs grow up to around ¼ inch long. They usually lay tiny, pearl-white eggs every 6 to 8 weeks.

What are bedbugs in your home?

Unlike what most people believe, bed bugs aren’t attracted to clutter, dirt, and grime. They infest homes in search of warmth and a stable food source. Even the cleanest homes are vulnerable to bed bug infestations. However, being clutter-free makes it easier for the homeowners to notice the bedbugs and eliminate them before they cause more damage.

Why is it hard to eliminate bedbugs in a property?

Bedbugs are extremely difficult to eliminate because of their small size and prolific breeding habits. They’re also essentially immune to some kinds of insecticide, which is why most DIY pest treatments won’t get rid of them for good. The best way to eliminate these pests is to call a trusted pest management professional like California Bed Bug Exterminators that have the right knowledge and equipment to get the job done. 

How to Spot Bed Bugs in a Property

Are you suspecting a bed bug infestation on your property? Bed bugs are extremely hard to spot if you’re not looking for them. Aside from hunting these critters, it’s also important to pay attention to other signs of bed bug activity like:

  • An unexplainable foul odor in the room
  • Straight lines of three insect bites all over the body
  • Rusty stains and dark fecal marks on the bed sheet, blanket, or pillowcase
  • Shell casings on the mattress and other nearby structures
  • Bed bug eggs that are pearl white and oval-shaped

Benefits of Getting a Professional Bed Bug Extermination

Bed bug extermination services might be expensive for some people, which is why they attempt to try home remedies and DIY treatments for bed bugs first. However, bed bug problems are best left to the hands of a professional exterminator to prevent re-infestation.

Here are the benefits of professional bed bug extermination that you should consider first before grabbing a can of insecticide from the local store and spraying it on the problem areas at home:

  • Professional exterminators only utilize the least amount of pesticide needed to effectively eliminate the bed bugs in the treatment area.
  • They have the right tools and training when it comes to dealing with different cases of bed bug infestation.
  • Pest control companies ensure that their treatments won’t cause further damage to the property during the extermination process.
  • Pest management professionals spend less time than DIY methods when it comes to treating bed bugs in an infested property.
  • They only utilize the best treatment methods to ensure that the pests won’t return to the property anytime soon. This helps property owners save a lot of money in the long run.

FAQs About Spray and Prep Treatment

Q: Is it safe to use store-bought pesticides for bed bugs?

A: Store-bought pesticides are different from the ones used by pest control companies for eliminating the bed bugs in the property. Most of the time, store-bought pesticides are made with lots of harmful chemicals that might lead to health and safety concerns if mishandled. California Bed Bug Exterminators use IPM-based treatment plans which is why clients can guarantee that we only use pesticides that are safe for humans, pets, and the environment.

Q: What makes spray treatments effective?

A: The pesticides used in spray treatments are often created with substances that are lethal for bed bugs but essentially harmless for humans. Aside from the initial effects of the pesticide that kills most of the bed bugs within the first few minutes after application, the residual pesticide still manages to eliminate the pests even weeks after the initial treatment.

Q: Is spray treatment better than heat treatment?

A: Both spray and heat are effective ways to eliminate the bed bugs on the property. There isn’t a simple answer to which of these methods are more effective because exterminators have to consider the severity of the infestation, the area of the treatment site, and other factors needed to create an effective bed bug treatment plan. It’s still better to consult with a pest management professional like California Bed Bug Exterminators to find out which method works best for the property.
