Having bed bugs in your home can feel like a never ending nightmare. You go to bed every night and toss and turn, laying in wait for the little blood suckers to venture out of their hiding places to find you. When you have bed bugs, your sleep suffers, your stress levels go through the roof and if you try to get rid of them on your own, the battle seems never ending. Do-it-yourself treatments rarely work. They may get rid of a few of the bugs that you see, but they will do nothing against the bed bugs that are hiding in your home that you cannot see. Luckily there is one method of bed bug removal that is nearly 100% effective and it is available from the St. Louis pest control pros at Rottler Pest and Lawn Solutions. Heat treatments for bed bugs will not only eliminate adult bed bugs, but their eggs and nymphs as well. At Rottler, we are the leading choice in St. Louis for bed bug heat treatments and we service both residential homes and commercial facilities.
All life stages of bed bugs are best eliminated at temperatures over 120°F. By using heat to achieve bed bug extermination, we can safely kill bed bugs while also protecting the environment. Rottler is committed to taking a green approach to pest management; we are constantly striving to improve our services by providing our customers with the most advanced and eco-friendly services available in the industry.
The very best way to avoid having a bed bug problem is to prevent bed bugs in your home or business in the first place. This can be very challenging, because these are sneaky pests that will enter your property on the backs of guests, visitors or even on you. Although it may not be possible to totally prevent bed bugs from finding you, it is helpful to always be aware that these pests are out there. You should know what bed bugs look like and be aware that they can be picked up in virtually any public space. Hotels and commercial lodgings tend to be popular places for bed bugs, because they have a high turnover rate and are visited by many different people in a short period of time. If you have plans to stay in a hotel, make sure you examine your room carefully, looking for signs of bed bugs or bed bugs themselves. If you suspect that you’ve picked up bed bugs on your travels, contact Rottler for a bed bug inspection to help you know whether or not you’ve picked up bed bugs and brought them home with you.
