Bed bug Treatment & Control
You may have heard the saying, “Sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite.” That’s really good advice. Bed bugs 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 bed bugs, the best way to keep them from biting is to call Tanler Termite and Pest Control to help you get rid of them.
What do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Bed bugs 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.
Bed bugs 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 bed bugs 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 bed bugs 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 bed bugs and to keep your luggage off the floor.
An easy way to spot bed bugs is by looking for dark spotting and staining on the mattress caused by their droppings. It’s also possible to find bed bug eggs, egg shells, molted skins, and the bugs themselves.
If you think you might have bed bugs, it’s important to call Tanler Termite and Pest Control for an inspection right away at (888) 982-6537.

What is the Most Effective Bed bug Treatment?
Our liquid bed bug treatment uses highly-effective products called Crossfire and Bedlum to exterminate the bed bugs. Liquid treatment is the least expensive treatment option but the process may require multiple treatments depending on the severity of the infestation. Our liquid treatment comes with a 30-day warranty.
Our bed bug treatment process uses 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 bed bugs compared to liquid treatments due to the heat fully filling up the entire room or structure. This treatment comes with a 30-day warranty no chemicals are needed.
