The Top 3 Things You Need To Know About Bed Bugs

AZEX Pest Solutions is the most trusted bed bug heat company in the state of Arizona.  The owners and staff work hard every day to ensure that every treatment performed uses the highest quality equipment and is performed to the highest standards for every customer.

AZEX is also dedicated to spreading awareness regarding bed bugs and their elimination.  There are countless websites offering ineffective treatments and DIY methods.  These inaccurate methods are not only going to prolong your bed bug infestation they can also be very dangerous, causing damages to your home, health effects to your family, and cost hundreds of dollars in repeat treatments.  AZEX wants to end this expensive and dangerous cycle by giving the public accurate information, high quality DIY treatment options and offering treatments that work the first time.

Here are the top 3 things AZEX thinks you should know about bed bugs:

  1. Bed bugs can hide anywhere!  Regardless of their name, bed bugs don’t just live in beds.  When treating a bed bug problem, it’s important to treat all areas that bed bugs are currently living.  That could include your living room, kitchen, bathrooms, and even your car.  Any bed bugs that are missed during a treatment will continue to multiply and bit you in the process.
    Note: For the most accurate bed bug inspection AZEX offers K-9 Inspections.
  2. Bed bugs can effect anyone! For decades bed bugs have been viewed as a bug that only effect unclean environments.  This couldn’t be more untrue.  Bed bugs have been found in the fanciest resorts and homes, at airports, in busses, at the hospital, in the movies and even at your friends homes.  Bed bugs spread by hitching rides on unsuspecting people, regardless of their social or financial status.
    Note:  Check out our blog for more info about bed bugs, how they spread and recent new articles regarding bed bug infestations.
  3. Bed bugs HATE heat. In fact they can’t live if the temperatures get too high.  This “kill zone” happens between 120-140 degrees.  Luckily the heaters used in every AZEX heat treatment are designed to reach this temperature quickly and hold it steady for 4-8 hours.  This method doesn’t give bed bugs anywhere to hide, or time to move to a cooler area. Heat treatments are highly effective, and when performed according to regulations and instructions are extremely safe as well.
    Note: More info about your heat treatments options can be found here.
