We are industry-leading bedbug exterminators and have established many of the bedbug removal protocols used by the bedbug removal industry today. There is much speculation over why the bedbug population has exploded over the past several decades. Some say it was outlawing the use of the pesticide DDT, our travel habits, and more. One thing we can agree on is that bed bugs are one of the nastiest infestations you may encounter. Metro Pest Control receives hundreds of calls each year for bedbug removal services in the Bronx alone. Renowned for their hitchhiking ability, bedbugs move from room to room, hotel, office, city, state, or country by hitching a ride in clothes, suitcases, or whatever they can latch onto. Once established, bed bugs are prolific breeders and very difficult to exterminate. Bed bugs will literally make your life miserable. You can trust our tried and true bed bug removal process to safely and quickly exterminate the bedbugs in your home, apartment, or business.
Our Approach to Bed Bug Removal
Metro Pest Control uses a four-step plan for the elimination of bedbugs.
In fact, we established many of the protocols used to exterminate bed bugs, in use today by the pest control industry.
Step Number One is the Bedbug Inspection:
A thorough inspection of your home is performed. Bedbugs hide in mattresses, clothing, carpet, furniture, baseboards, picture frames, and many other places. Our experience with thousands of successful bedbug exterminations is crucial in the inspection process.
Step Number Two is Bedbug Preparation:
Bedbug extermination is a detailed process and thorough preparation is critical to a successful outcome. Your entire home or apartment must be thoroughly vacuumed. All of your bedding and clothing will need to be washed in hot water, dry cleaned, or thrown out. All of your furniture, shoes, cabinets, and more will require thorough vacuuming as well.
After being cleaned and or vacuumed, all items must be sealed in double plastic bags to prevent further infestation. Many of our clients rely on our meticulous bedbug preparation process but some choose to do it themselves.
Step Number Three is the Bedbug Treatment Process:
If you live in an apartment building, all perimeter walls will be treated, creating a chemical barrier that prevents the infestation from spreading. We use insecticides and special growth inhibitors that destroy all eggs, stop reproduction and kill any bedbugs. Virtually all of your furnishings, closets, baseboards, crevices, and more, throughout your apartment or home, will be thoroughly treated and follow-up service is provided to ensure a successful outcome.
Step Number Four is Structural Modification
We will recommend structural changes that may be necessary to inhibit re-infestation. Such modifications may include sealing moldings, cracks in walls, baseboards, window frames, and other areas that may allow bedbugs to pass.
