Signs of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are commonly mistaken for flea bites, mosquito bites, or other rashes; these pests are active at all hours of the day and bite any exposed skin. The bites are painless, but if the bites are scratched, it can cause infection.

K-9 Detection and Thermal Radiation

Due to the mobility, treatment for bed bugs can be an involved process. At Killingsworth, our specialists use K-9 Detection and Thermal Radiation to ensure that your house is bed-bug free in our three part removal plan.

Our Three Part Bed Bug Removal Plan:

Bed bugs don’t have a chance against the expertly trained Killingsworth Jack Russell Terriers. Humans can detect 30% of bed bug issues, but our dogs have a success rate of 98%.

Killingsworth offers bed bug control to Charlotte and surrounding areas, using a bed bug heat treatment that stops bed bugs dead in their tracks! Our electric bed bug heaters increase room temperatures to 135°F, the temperature needed to kill bed bugs. Some companies set their temperature at 200°F, which is excessive, unnecessary heat that can melt and damage household items.

We monitor on location using sensors to ensure that lethal temperatures are reached without damaging the space and its contents.

After the bed bug treatment is completed, our highly-trained K-9 teams will be brought back in to make sure all bed bugs have been killed and your surroundings are bed bug free!

Where Bed Bugs Hide

People who travel often are at a higher risk of having a bed bug problem, as bed bugs are commonly found in areas with many guests like hotels, universities or hospitals. Bed bugs are nimble creatures and can spread from anywhere such as a bag, room to room, apartment to apartment, and even used furniture.

Bed bugs live in articles of furniture, clothing, or bedding can spread to multiple rooms within a home or even multiple dwellings in a building. They are hard to treat, as they travel with you, burrowed in suitcases and boxes.  Their only trace is the dark stains they leave and their itchy bites.

Bed Bug Identification

If you have a bed bug infestation, the earlier you can catch it, the easier they are to treat. Look for reddish stains or dark spots (from bodily waste) on your sheets and mattress cover, eggs and eggshells, as well as live bugs.

You can find bed bugs practically anywhere once they spread. From fabric, to drawers, and even small cracks in the wall or wall hangings, bed bugs can get to any surface.
