 We keep get calls from consumers that think they have bed bugs. In many cases they are told they have bed bugs by an exterminator.
Do these inspectors not know ?

This is a Bed Bug !

Please do not treat for bed bugs unless you have evidence of bed bugs being present. I see people throwing away furniture, vacating areas, freaking out and then it turns out its carpet beetles. I had a guy the other day called me and told me he knew he had bed bugs because it was confirmed by another company. He just wanted an estimate for heat treatment. Upon inspection all we found was carpet beetles and no treatment was necessary. He almost signed a contract for $1800 for bed bug treatment with the company that confirmed bed bugs. This should not happen but we are in a different world unfortunately. I admit we are getting tired of driving to consumers houses only to find carpet beetles and then having to convince them they don't have a bed bug problem.

If you are in the Atlanta, Macon, Savannah, Athens,  areas

Give Us A Call at 770-957-1915 and we will send a Professionally trained inspector to confirm whether you have activity. You can also email me and I will put you in touch with our inspector that handles your area. 

After a thorough inspection we can give you advice as to a treatment plan. We specialize in Thermal Remediation Electric Heat. This is much more effective and even than propane. We position the heaters strategically inside the house. We do not heat above 135 degrees. 120 degrees is kill temperature. With fans it is much like a convection oven. It is very effective and almost always only needs to be once.
