Serving Mercer, Ocean, Monmouth, Middlesex County
Before inspecting the home, the resident mentioned that she was only getting bit while sleeping on her couch. So we inspected the area and, sure enough, found bed bugs in every crevice of the couch cushions.
Don't let their name fool you! Bed bugs will harbor in areas aside from the bed, such as couches, chairs, outlets, and rugs. Mainly in areas where they can have easy access to a blood meal as well as where they can feel pressure on both sides of their body.
First, we thoroughly vacuumed the infested areas to remove the bed bugs and their eggs.
Next, we applied a dual-action direct contact liquid residual on the couch, all the cracks and crevices throughout the home, and in the main bedroom.
Bed bugs have a very thick wax coating on their skin, and this residual is able to break down their thick coating and then seep into their body. The bed bugs then carry this residual back to their colony and in no time at all, the bed bugs are eliminated.
We scheduled several follow-up inspections to monitor the bed bug activity and apply additional treatments if needed.
A manager of an adult community in Maplewood, NJ called our office after one of his residents complained of bed bugs in her home.
