How Secure Pest Services Gets Rid of Bed Bugs in NJ?

Secure Pest Services utilizes a comprehensive approach to bed bug extermination in NJ to ensure your home or business is entirely free of these persistent pests.

Firstly, our expert team conducts a thorough inspection of your premises to detect the signs and extent of the bed bug infestation. We ascertain their hiding spots, which could range from mattresses, bed frames, and bedding, to crevices in walls and furniture.

After conducting a thorough inspection of your premises, we tailor a personalized treatment plan based on the severity of the infestation and your specific requirements. The initial service targets key areas such as bedrooms and living rooms, where we apply a knockdown treatment designed to eradicate the adult bed bug population. Our methods not only aim to eliminate existing infestations but also to deter future outbreaks.

During the second service, our technician utilizes a residual material combined with an insect growth regulator. The residual material provides lasting efficacy over several weeks, effectively eliminating newly hatched bed bugs as they emerge. Meanwhile, the insect growth regulator disrupts the bed bugs’ reproductive cycle, preventing them from reaching sexual maturity and laying eggs. This approach aligns with the bed bugs’ breeding cycle, which can result in up to five eggs per day per mature bed bug, with eggs hatching in approximately one week.

Post treatment, our team offers advice and guidance on how to safeguard your premises from future bed bug infestations. We can also schedule follow-up inspections and treatments to ensure complete eradication. Furthermore, we provide a satisfaction guarantee— if the bed bugs return, so do we, at no extra charge.  Ready to start bed bug service or call us at 844-732-7378.

All About Bed Bugs

Beg bugs are about 1/4” to 3/8” long (about the size of an apple seed), brown to reddish blood-sucking insects with a flat, oval-shaped body. Bed bug young (nymphs) are smaller and translucent white-yellow in color while their eggs are tiny (about the size of a pinhead) and milky white in color. The female bed bugs deposit 1 – 2 eggs daily and can produce up to 500 eggs (one bed bug per egg) in its lifetime. Nymphs undergo five molts (leaving behind a tannish shell known as cast skins) before reaching maturity which generally takes about five weeks. They need a blood meal in between each molting stage. Since bed bugs are very resilient, they could survive several months without a blood meal especially at cooler temperatures. They have the potential to live up to a year without feeding at 55 degrees F or less.

Where Bed Bugs Hide – Bed bugs are very secretive by nature and prefer to hide in dark cracks and crevices especially close to where people sleep or spend a lot of time at rest such as seams around mattresses and box springs, wood frame of box springs, on bed frames, behind head boards, on ceiling/wall junctions, top along baseboards, behind pictures on the wall, couches, chairs, etc.

Evidence of a Bed Bug Infestation – Despite their secretive nature, bed bugs eventually leave evidence behind. Evidence includes seeing the actual live bed bugs, dark blood spots on bedding and/or any of the above mentioned hiding places, cast skins and egg or egg shells.
