Bed Bug Treatments & Extermination in Broward County

Bed bugs have become an increasing problem for many homeowners in South Florida in recent years and have made bed bug treatments & extermination services vital. These small, parasitic insects can invade your home without warning and quickly infest living spaces. Once inside, they feed exclusively on human blood, often biting multiple times and leaving itchy welts on the skin. This is where East Coast Pest Control comes in. As the largest and most trusted name in pest control services in Fort Lauderdale for years, we have the experience and expertise to eliminate even severe bed bug problems. Our licensed technicians are uniquely qualified to conduct thorough inspections, develop customized treatment plans, and apply proven methods like heat treatments that guarantee complete eradication.

If left untreated, a minor bed bug problem can grow exponentially as these pests reproduce rapidly. Within months, a few stealthy bed bugs can multiply into thousands, spreading from beds to upholstered furniture, drapes, and other fabric-covered areas where they hide by day. In addition to discomfort from bed bug bites, an infestation can have emotional and financial impacts as well if not addressed promptly.

  • Bed bugs are expert hitchhikers and hide. They can easily travel between homes and apartments undetected.
  • Traditional DIY methods like sprays or foggers are usually ineffective for bed bug extermination. Pests have grown increasingly resistant to over-the-counter chemicals.
  • Eliminating an active infestation requires the skills and resources only a licensed pest control professional can provide.

Types of Bed Bug Treatments

Chemical Treatments

One of the most traditional methods for bed bug elimination is the use of chemical insecticides and pesticides. Our technicians are fully licensed and trained in the application of EPA-registered liquid and aerosol sprays specifically formulated for bed bugs. 

While chemicals can work, they have some important downsides. Many common store-bought sprays and bombs have limited effectiveness these days as bed bugs have grown resistant over time. It also means handling nasty chemicals yourself that must be applied precisely as directed.

Our professionals take a more comprehensive approach to kill bed bugs. We thoroughly inspect your home to identify all the areas of bed bug infestations before precisely targeting problem spots. Ongoing monitoring and retreatment if needed helps prevent leftover bugs from restarting the cycle.

Heat It to Sweep Them Away

Did you know heat is the gold standard for completely ridding yourself of those pesky hitchhikers? At East Coast Pest Control, we are uniquely equipped with commercial-grade thermal remediation systems to heat entire rooms or structures to extreme temperatures. 

Through convection heating methods, our machines slowly raise areas to 130-140°F and maintain it for several hours. This non-toxic process kills bed bugs of all life stages, including bed bug eggs, on contact through dehydration. Plus, it penetrates deep into cracks and crevices where they hide without worrying about flawed chemical application. You’ll be bug-free in no time thanks to our controlled and monitored heat treatments. No more itchy bites or endless stress!

DIY Heat Rentals – Go Solo If You Dare

For smaller, contained infestations, some opt to “DIY” with rented heaters rather than contact a professional bed bug exterminator. We do offer affordable rental options if you’re feeling brave. However, going solo means taking full responsibility for everything that could go wrong without guidance. 

Mistimed or incorrect use may only traumatize bugs without true elimination. Meanwhile, lingering pests could rapidly regain control. Don’t change a botched job when our licensed technicians handle it right the first time, guaranteed. Call East Coast Pest Control today. One of our experts can discuss your specific situation and budget to design a customized treatment plan for your home. Sleep soundly tonight!

Inspection and Treatment Process

The first step to eliminating your bed bug problem is our licensed technicians performing a comprehensive inspection of your entire home. These pests are sneaky, so inspectors put their detective skills to work identifying signs of an infestation and its full scope. They scrutinize likely hiding spots like mattress seams, bed frames, headboards, nightstands, and any other furniture or décor nearby for live bugs, droppings, eggs, or reddish-brown stains as evidence. Our team even employs special monitoring devices that use heat and carbon dioxide to lure any remaining hidden bugs out of the woodwork after hours. This extensive reconnaissance informs the most effective bed bug control strategy.

Customized Combat: Your Personalized Battle Plan

With intelligence gathered, our experts sit down with you to discuss customized treatment options. Every home and situation requires a tailored plan of attack. Some properties may only need a one-time targeted chemical treatment whereas more complex infestations involving multiple rooms demand the deployment of heat equipment throughout a few sessions. 

We consider your budget, preferences for toxicity levels, and desired timeline to create the most suitable regimen. Regular communication ensures your treatment remains on schedule and strategy until the coveted “all clear” status.

In the unlikely event that follow-ups become necessary, our commitment doesn’t stop at ensuring you are rid of bed bugs. We stand by our work until all signs of the menace have vanished for good.
