Do you need help with a bed bug problem?
Bed Bug Eradication - Go Green Pest Control
Few pest nightmares are worse than bed bugs. They reproduce at an alarming rate, they leave feces trails behind everywhere they go, and they’re virtually impossible to get rid of without professional help. Some Internet forums claim that even professionals can’t always conquer them, but that’s just not true. Go Green has a proven track record of eradicating these nasty little blood suckers, and our bed bug exterminator services are 100 percent guaranteed.
Inspections and estimates are free, our pricing is competitive, and our methods are effective. In addition to killing live bed bugs, we’ll seek out hidden nests and kill both eggs and newly hatched young. Then we’ll arm you with information, so you can take steps to prevent the problem from returning.
What Are the Signs of Bed Bug Infestation?
Bed bugs seek out folds, cracks, holes, and other nooks to live in and lay eggs. Once they infest mattresses, furniture, and carpeting, they feed on the blood of family. Unlike fleas and ticks, they don’t attach themselves and hold on; rather, they take short meals and move on, which makes them difficult to spot.
They’re also very tiny (the size of an apple seed), and although they have a reddish-brown color after feeding, they’re usually a translucent yellow, and their bodies are even smaller—very difficult to see. They have an elongated, oval-shaped body and a musty smell.
You’ll know you have bed bugs if:
If you see any of these signs, call us immediately; the problem will quickly get worse if untreated.
Bed Bug Control and Prevention Tips
There’s a lot you can do to minimize the chance of an infestation:
Ongoing Bed Bug Detection Service
Bed bug detection is an important part of an Integrated Pest Management program because these creatures reproduce so quickly that the infestation is usually well established by the time the average homeowner knows they have a problem.
Did You Say, “I Have Detected Bed Bugs in my Home or Business?”
Don’t panic; bed bugs have been a part of American life since the Mayflower brought them to the New World. In recent years, there has been a resurgence of infestations, so don’t be too surprised if you fall victim. You’ll be fine as long as you deal with it quickly.
Do-it-yourself treatment seldom works because these little monsters have become resistant to many of the pesticides available to consumers. Their eggs are hard to kill and harder to reach with over-the-counter chemicals and methods. Go Green Pest Control uses state-of-the-art technology to kill them at every life stage, no matter where bed bugs are hiding in your home.
Bed Bug Exterminator Questions and Answers
Q: What are bed bugs?
A: Small, red-brown insects whose sole diet is the blood of mammals. They’re about the size of an apple seed and have very flat, oval bodies. Although they have wings, they are flightless, but they can crawl very fast. They also grow very quickly, transforming from an egg to an adult in about a month. Bed bugs are not known to carry disease.
Q: Why are bed bugs called bed bugs?
A: If you want to get technical, scientists call them Cimex lectularius. Most people call them bed bugs because they usually feed on sleeping hosts.
Q: Where do bed bugs hide?
A: Like ticks, bed bugs have flat bodies for easy concealment in small spaces, so they can be difficult to spot. Check beds, bedding, mattresses, clothing, bed frames, and headboards, especially in cracks, folds, and recesses. You may see the bugs themselves, or you may just see the small, dark fecal spots they leave behind.
Q: What does it feel like when bed bugs bite?
A: You usually can’t feel the bite; only the aftermath of itching and irritation. Their proboscis are so tiny that the bite itself is usually painless to a sleeping victim. They typically punch a tiny hole in the skin, feed for a few minutes, then sneak away when they’ve had their fill of blood.
Q: What does it look like when bed bugs bite?
A: Unlike flea and tick bites, which have a red spot at the puncture site, bed bug bites look more like a welt or rash. Many other insects, including mosquitos, leave the same calling card, so bed bug bites are difficult to diagnose by appearance alone. If you think you’ve been bitten by one, it’s time to start looking for signs of them in your home, as final proof.
Q: How successful is bed bug extermination?
A: Although bed bugs are resistant to most over-the-counter chemical treatments, professional exterminators are licensed to use stronger chemical remedies, which do a fantastic job of removing infestations, when properly applied.
Q: What is the main cause of bed bugs?
A: Like fleas, bed bugs are avid hitchhikers, traveling from place to place on clothing, skin, and in luggage and personal belongings.
Q: How do I prepare my home for a bed bug treatment?
A: Here’s what you’ll need to do:
Q: What to do after a bed bug treatment:
A: These steps will help assure the success of your professional bed bug treatment:
Q: Can you sleep in your bed after a bed bug treatment?
A: Sure; we don’t do anything to your mattress that makes it unsafe. It’s actually a good idea to use the bed as soon as possible to draw out any remaining bed bugs while the problem is being treated.
Q: When should you call an exterminator for bed bugs?
A: Now, if you’ve seen any sign of them whatsoever. It’s also not a bad idea if you learn that any workmates, family, or neighbors have encountered them. This problem is much easier to solve in the early stages.
Q: Do bed bugs ever go away?
A: Yes, but complete eradication can only be confirmed a few months after treatment because any living specimens in the home can go without food for up to six months. Likely, we’ll get them on the first pass, but some infestations have been known to recur on a small scale, requiring an additional treatment.
Q: Do dryer sheets keep bed bugs away?
A: They can act as mild repellent, but they don’t harm the bugs, so it’s not a definitive solution.
Q: Should I throw out my mattress if I have bed bugs?
A: No, we can take steps to contain any bugs harboring in the mattress until they die.
Q: When do I call pest control for bed bugs?
A: Immediately. A mild bed bug problem typically gets much worse, very quickly.

Q: How do you get rid of bed bugs in a car?
A: Vehicle treatments are similar to home treatments. We’ll use the same tools and techniques to remove them from your car.
Q: Who pays for bed bug extermination in an apartment?
A: There’s no hard and fast rule that applies to every jurisdiction in the country, but the general guideline is that, if the bugs were there when you moved in, the landlord should pay; if it was you who brought them in, you may have to pay. Unfortunately, renter’s insurance doesn’t usually cover this.
Q: Where can I find a bed bug exterminator in my area?
A: There are plenty of exterminators, but not all of them have the experience and expertise to deal effectively with bed bugs. Go Green specializes in bed bug extermination, and we’re so confident of our service that it is 100 percent guaranteed.
