It is extremely difficult to rid your home of bed bugs on your own. They are very small in size and difficult to see because they typically hide during the day and only come out at night. What’s more, they breed extremely fast and can spread to several areas in your home in no time. The first step to eliminating bed bugs is to properly identify the infestation. Often confused with fleas, signs of bed bugs include:
- Small blood markings on bedding or mattresses
- Empty molt skins found in the crease of the mattress or in the carpeting
- An unusual musty odor coming from the infected area
- Small red bites usually towards the top of the body
Bed bugs spread very quickly and easily, and are usually brought home after a stay in an infested area. As expert hitchhikers, they can even crawl into your suitcase or simply hitch a ride on your body! There has been a recent resurgence of bed bugs in the United States due in large part to the increase in international and domestic travel. Bed bugs do not discriminate and an infestation can happen to even the cleanest, most well-kept homes!

Fast Elimination With Heat Treatments
Here at Fahey, we offer heat treatments if needed to eliminate all bed bugs in just one visit to your home. This treatment method allows us to minimize the chemicals used when treating your bed bug infestation. Thermal Remediation® is a safe and environmentally-friendly way to kill bed bugs in all stages of their lifecycle, including the adult, egg and larval phases. So, how does heat treatment work?
- After we confirm bed bug activity, we will raise the temperature of the affected room to temperatures between 120 and 135 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Our technicians restrict the upper limit of the temperature to ensure that it does not exceed 135° Fahrenheit, which reduces the possibility of damage to your property and its contents.
- Heating the entire room will ensure that bed bugs in all lifecycles - even the ones strategically hiding out in cracks and crevices - are killed in one fell swoop!
- Our experts use a vacuum to remove any detectable bed bugs after the heat treatment, leaving you with a bed bug-free home!
