Bedbug Treatment & Control
You may have heard the saying, “Sleep tight and don’t let the bedbugs bite.” That’s really good advice. Bedbugs feed on the blood of humans and animals using a long beak to poke through the skin. They are not known to transmit diseases to humans but their bites can create an itchy welt.
If you have bedbugs, the best way to keep them from biting is to call Tanler Termite and Pest Control to help you get rid of them.
Bedbugs are typically brown and flat and about the size of a small ladybug. They plump up when feeding. Bed bugs don’t fly but they can quickly scurry over furniture, walls, ceilings, floors, and other surfaces.
Bedbugs are usually brought into the home on clothing, luggage, and used beds and other furniture. If you buy used clothing or used furniture, it’s important to check for bedbugs before you bring these items into your home. It’s also a good idea to wash the clothes as soon as you get them home.
Hotels, motels, and apartments are common places to encounter bedbugs because of the high volume of people that come and go from these places. When you are staying at a hotel or motel, it’s a good idea to check between the mattress and box spring for any sign of bedbugs and to keep your luggage off the floor.
An easy way to spot bedbugs is by looking for dark spotting and staining on the mattress caused by their droppings. It’s also possible to find bedbug eggs, egg shells, molted skins, and the bugs themselves.

Our bedbug heat treatments use electrical heaters because they are much safer than the propane heaters that other companies use. The home is heated to around 135 degrees for six-to-eight hours so you need to vacate the home during this treatment. Heat is more effective for bedbugs compared to liquid treatments due to the heat fully filling up the entire room or structure. This treatment comes with a 60-day warranty no chemicals are needed.
