Bed Bugs


Over roughly the past decade, bed bugs have made a dramatic comeback in the U.S.   The bed bug is mostly a nocturnal insect that feeds on the blood of warm blooded animals and human hosts. In the early stages of an infestation, the bed bugs may be difficult to locate, usually hiding in the creases of a mattress, or in the cracks and crevices of the box springs, curtains,and bed frames. However, as the population grows, you can locate them easier by the black or brown spots created by the bed bugs' excrement. Adult bed bugs, can live two months to up to a year without a meal. Typically, the females will lay eggs after they have a meal. They can lay one or two eggs per day, and potentially multiple hundreds in their lifetime. The eggs will hatch in about a week and will shed their skin five times before they become adults. The life cycle of a bed bug from egg to adult can be as little as a month, with this short life cycle there can be multiple generations per year, and populations can grow very rapidly. A single female introduced into a home can potentially be the reason for thousands of bed bugs in as little as a few months. 

Innovative Pest Solutions offers different treatments that are very effective .  

The heat plus treatment kills all life stages in one treatment with maintained  temperature of heat then an additional protection of chemical is applied for providing  and sustaining longer lasting control. 

The second service is a heat treatment only this kills all stages of bed bugs and no chemical is used.  

The least costly is a chemical treatment, this may take up to 6 weeks to control your bed bugs but the residual control is there for longer lasting control. 

Innovative Pest Solutions offers a bed bug control program for Owensboro and the surrounding areas designed to kill the pest and help prevent them from coming back all at prices you can afford.
