These pests are small, flat, oval-shaped bugs with reddish-brown bodies and can live in any small crevice or protected area. The most common place to find them is in beds, where people sleep, but they can also move to other areas as the infestation grows. You may notice welts, irritation, fecal smears, and blood spots on your bedding if you have an infestation.
The first step toward resolving your bed bug issue begins with positive identification. Berner makes it a priority to show up fast for bed bug inspections as we understand how traumatic these pests can be.
Second, where customer prep is concerned, Berner takes a less is more approach. While other companies typically require customers to perform an extensive and lengthy preparation checklist before they’ll even provide treatment, we prefer to treat a bed bug infestation like it’s a crime scene – TOUCH NOTHING.
We’ve found over the years that this invasive “customer required” prep often causes bed bugs to scatter or get moved from room to room, causing increased costs for the customer.
Instead, allow our professionals with the understanding of bed bug biology, tendencies, and hiding places to do the job as this will help us more effectively identify, treat, and develop a plan to address the infestation.
