Once we carefully inspected the bed we found bed bugs in the seams that run along the bottom of the mattress.
Bed bugs love hiding in very tight areas where they have pressure on multiple sides of their bodies at the same time. It makes them feel safe and also provides a very dark resting place. So while you may see nothing crawling along the top of the bed, be cautious that something is probably lurking beneath.
We thoroughly vacuumed all the crack and crevice areas around the bed as well as bedside furniture. We focused on the window and door trims as well as the cracks by the baseboards.
Once everything is vacuumed, we put mattress and box spring encasements on the bed. This will ensure that nothing gets in or out as well as provides us with a bright white cover to show any signs of insects or staining.
Finally, we applied a light liquid application along all the areas where bed bugs are known to harbor.
When all of the areas were properly treated, we let the homeowner know that we would be returning for a follow up visit. He was extremely happy with how fast we were able to get out there and take care of his issue. We're looking forward to seeing him smile after we clear his home of bed bugs.
