Bed Bug Detection and Removal

What is a Bed Bug and How do You Detect Them?

Image of Bed BugBed bugs are parasitic insects in the genus Cimex that feed exclusively on blood. Cimex lectularius, the common bed bug, is the best known as it prefers to feed on human blood. A number of adverse health effects may result from bed bug bites, including skin rashes, psychological effects, and allergic symptoms.[5] Bed bugs are not known to transmit any pathogens as disease vectors. Certain signs and symptoms suggest the presence of bed bugs; finding the adult insects confirms the diagnosis.


GreenREM Dog EllieDogs are used in many industries for detection. With a smelling ability thousands of times more powerful than humans, dogs have been trained to sniff out narcotics, bombs, and cadavers to name a few.  Canine detection is ideal for finding small objects and substances in large areas. This is why we use highly trained dogs to pinpoint bed bugs in homes, hotels, hospitals, and every other place imaginable.


While severe bed bug infestations are easy to identify with the naked eye, bed bug eggs, nymphs, and recent infestations are especially difficult to find. Bed bugs can hide anywhere in the home. Pest control inspectors who are limited by their eyesight alone are thus only about 30% accurate when finding bed bugs.

Remediation of Bed Bugs

Heat Treatment is safe, efficient and the single most effective way to eliminated bed bug infestations. Heat treatment kills bed bugs at all life stages, from egg to adult and is ideal for both residential and commercial buildings.

Thermal RadiationOur thermal remediation system comprehensively eliminates bed bugs by raising the room temperature to a threshold point beyond which they cannot survive. Our environmentally-friendly process eradicates all bed bugs thoroughly, quickly, and without the use of any chemicals.

Once bed bugs have found a host, they rapidly multiply and spread. In an entomological survey conducted by the University of Kentucky, pest control companies overwhelmingly stated that bed bugs were the hardest pest to eradicate – often needing over 4 treatments with conventional methods.
