How do bed bug infestations occur?

  • The most common way a bed bug infestation begins is via guests in your home or business who do not realize they have a bed bugs. These tiny insects live on clothing and fabrics, and can easily enter your home or business when visitors come by.
  • Furniture purchased from secondhand or thrift stores can easily harbor these bugs. They hide out in mattresses, couches and chairs, and other furniture that provide hiding spaces for bed bugs.
  • When you take luggage or linens out of storage, you may find bed bugs, so be sure to always inspect anything taken from storage spaces.

Behind-the-Scenes Look at Our Expert Team

For successful eradication, we must exterminate them from the egg stage to full-grown adults. So, to comprehensively address the infestation, we’ll provide you with several treatments over a three-week period, using multiple methods. This includes followup reinspections to ensure successful extermination. 

Turner Pest Control offers the latest innovation in Stuart bed bug treatments: Thermal Remediation®. Our customers appreciate how this remediation only takes one treatment, one that doesn’t involve toxins or chemical fumigation. Instead, we use high heat to destroy bed bugs throughout their lifecycle. 

Bed Bug Extermination with Minimal Disruption

Our extermination methods are so environmentally friendly that you can stay indoors while we perform treatments—even if you (or a family member) has allergies or other health issues. We focus on making the entire experience as seamlessly easy as possible, scheduling appointments that are convenient for you. 

Choose the Best Treatment for Your Needs

No matter which one you choose, you’ll benefit from fast, effective bed bug exterminator products and processes—the latest treatments available today. Here are two approaches:

Heat Treatments

Thermal Remediation® uses only high heat to kill bed bugs at every stage of their life cycle in just one treatment. There’s no chemical fumigation, so no toxins are left behind and you and your pets can return to your home right after treatment is completed. Heat treatment can penetrate even the smallest cracks and crevices.

Chemical Treatments

After our bed bug experts confirm that these pests are in your home and locate their hiding places, we use the latest insecticide dust and residual contact treatments. As part of this thorough and effective bed bug control strategy, we provide an initial treatment, plus two more follow-up visits one and two weeks later.

Identifying Bed Bug Problems

As part of our free pest control inspection, our Stuart bed bug control team will identify where the pests are in their lifecycle and create a customized solution for your specific challenge.

How a bed bug infestation starts

If someone visits your Stuart home, coming from a place where bed bugs exist, they can transport them into your house: on their suitcases, clothing, shoes, and more. If you go on a trip to a place where there’s a bed bug presence, you can also bring back these unwanted guests in the same way. This is especially true if you stay somewhere overnight, but you can also pick them up when you run errands. 

If you shop at antique stores, rummage sales, or thrift shops—or are re-gifted something—this can also be a source of a starter set of bed bugs that can lead to a presence in your Stuart home. 

Although some people think that bed bugs won’t go into a clean home, that’s unfortunately a myth. They’ll settle into the most well cared for homes. 

Bed bug signs

Bed bugs aren’t as easy to spot as many other kinds of pests because of their size, which is comparable to an apple seed. Nymphs are even smaller. This bug is almost flat, too, almond shaped and reddish-brown. So, unless unless you happen to see an adult that isn’t hiding, look for: 

  • Cast off skin (exoskeletons)
  • Red/brown spots on bedding and/or pajamas (blood)
  • Fecal matter spots on mattresses and bedding linens
Preventing a bed bug infestation 

One of the best strategies: help to prevent an infestation from occurring. After all, getting rid of bed bugs, DIY, is almost impossible. Consider these steps: 

  • Carefully check soft second-hand purchases and gifts before taking them inside your house: mattresses, furniture cushions, clothing, and more. 
  • Use protective covers for your mattress and box springs, ones specifically designed to keep bed bugs out.
  • Vacuum carpeting, rugs, and furniture often.
  • When going on a trip, wrap suitcases in plastic bags first. When arriving at a hotel, put the luggage in the bathtub so it won’t be around soft items. 
  • After you come back home, closely inspect your suitcases before bringing them into your house. Wash clothing and other washable items in hot water. 
  • Eliminate or reduce clutter in your house (places where bed bugs could hide). 
  • Use plastic storage containers; pests prefer cardboard ones.  
Increasing presence of bed bugs

This upward trend has been occurring for the past few decades. To add to the problem, they’re awfully hard to kill, DIY—and here are even more reasons why this is such a challenging pest to control without a professional bed bug exterminator:

  • Adults can live without a food source for months. Literally. 
  • They can easily spread through your home.
  • They settle comfortably into the same kinds of spaces that we do: homes, offices, stores, dorms, schools, theaters, public transportation, and more.
  • It can be hard to find where they’re living and breeding, in part because they usually hide in the daytime. 
  • Bed bugs can survive in a wide range of temperatures: from near freezing up to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
