The three essentials of bed bug prevention

As part of your service we typically install insect interceptors under the legs of your beds and place mattress encasement on your mattresses. These two devices help prevent future bed bug infestations, while assisting in bed bug monitoring. Additionally our service technicians will offer bed bug prevention advise appropriate for your situation.

Everyone can benefit from theses three bed bug prevention tips that will help you avoid 80% of the potential for bed bug re-infestation:

  2. Never bring home upholstered furniture or beds abandoned on the street.
  3. When you return from travel, follow our tips for Avoiding Bed Bugs While Traveling.
