THIS IS WHY PEOPLE CHOOSE THE PEST INTERCEPTORS TO TREAT THEIR BED BUG INFESTATION

Because we spend time with you, explaining all about bed bugs, about their life-cycle and how we will 'break the cycle'. How we need to work together with you to get rid of your bed bugs, why they are so difficult to get rid of, what bed bug treatments there are, why shop and internet bought bed bug treatments aren't working for you, and above all, which professional bed bug treatment will get rid of your bed bug infestation best.

We do not try to baffle you with promises and pseudoscience. We give you information and straight facts.

The first fact we need to understand is that bed bugs are really difficult to get rid of. You have probably already discovered this fact for yourself after spending fortunes on potions and powders from the internet, or perhaps you’ve tried a million and one 'home remedies'? None of it works does it, if it did we wouldn’t be having this conversation right now and treating Bed Bugs wouldn't be a huge part of the Pest Interceptors business. Bed bugs are such a large part of our work load and expertise that we have even been featured on prime time T.V. on Channel 5's 'Filthy Britain S.O.S.' Here is a little clip showing just how well adapted bed bugs are to hiding away from sight, and how tiny the sticky eggs actually are.

You need to know your enemy when it comes to bed bugs. We need to be on the same page together. We all need to be on the same team when it comes to you being rid of your bed bugs and you need to have knowledge about bed bugs too. Without you, our customer, understanding the bed bug and how the treatments work, the bed bug is the one at advantage. We need to turn the advantage around to you. We need to win this battle with technology, technique, thoroughness and an understanding of our joint enemy, the bed bug.

Knowledge is power in many fights, and that is never truer than in the battle against the dreaded bed bug!

Pre-treatment and Post-treatment are unbelievably important in the battle ahead!!!

 

In fact, I would suggest that the thoroughness with which you carry out the pre-treatment part of the process is, probably, just as important as the part the Pest Interceptors play in this battle against the bugs with their state of the art chemicals and procedures! This is why we tell you that we need to fight this battle against bed bugs as a team!

Please take a close look at the Pre-treatment and Post-treatment preparation and processes here. Please take time to read and understand the checklist.  If you are serious about getting rid of your bed bug infestation for good, you need to take the treatment and everything that goes with it seriously! This part of the treatment is so important that if you don't think you can be bothered with doing it properly your bed bug treatment will probably fail, and neither of us wants that. So take a good look at what you will need to do (pre-treatment) before we come to get rid of your bed bugs, and what will be required of you after we have treated your home for bed bugs (post-treatment) is also super important. Please don't be fooled by anyone who is telling you that getting rid of bed bugs is an easy job, we have been doing this for over 10 years, please believe us when we tell you it is quite a battle, but also a battle we can totally win if we all work together. Promises are cheap, results are what you are what you need. Results are what we get you.

THIS IS HOW, TOGETHER, WE ARE GOING TO GET RID OF YOUR BED BUGS -

The bed bug behaviours and habits I am going to tell you about here are not done to scare you or persuade you into any decisions to use us for your bed bug removal. They are being told to you so that you understand what bed bug behaviours and habits are so that we can use them against them! We shall use their life cycle to destroy them. We shall attack them at every stage of their development. Let's look at a few of their habits and then we will see how we shall use their habits against themselves.

Bed bugs can walk at a speed similar to that of a spider of the same size. They will happily walk 200 feet to have a feed of your blood. This is why we treat your whole house, not just the bedroom where you are seeing the bed bug problem. The bed bug harbourage (where they live and grow) could be in another room of the house, or even downstairs! So we cover all routes to your beds.

Bed bugs can lurk in a gap of 0.5mm!!

 

Bed bugs can hide in a gap as small as the edge of a credit card! They love to hide in cracks and crevices. They can sometimes even be found in the gap left between wallpaper when its hung! In tiny cracks in old wooden doors! If there's a gap or crevice wider than half of one millimetre, there is a good chance bed bugs are lurking there.

This is why we treat from the ceilings down to the floors and everything in between. Nothing gets left to chance.

Bed bugs know when you are in your deepest stage of sleep. They can actually tell from the CO2 in your breath and the temperature of your skin when you are in your R.E.M. or dream sleep. They do this because you are in a state of sleep paralysis and are very unlikely to squash them or notice them when they come to feed off your blood.

This is why someone must physically sleep in all of the beds in the entire premises at least once every 3 nights, for the period of the 3 week treatment. We need to draw the adult bed bugs out and into contact with the treatment.

Although bed bugs can walk 200 feet for a feed and then back again to hide and grow they are more likely to be near to their food source, that is, you and your family. Their favourite place to lurk is around your headboard and mattress.

This is why we use one of the very few, professional strength, bed bug killing products that can be safely used on your beds. It’s a product that literally stops the bed bugs in their tracks! This is only one of the 3 chemicals we use in our chemical attack. 

Bed bugs will need a blood meal to grow.

Bed bugs breed like wild fire! A female bed bug will lay around 5 eggs a day; that’s 200 eggs in its lifetime! Upon hatching out, each tiny baby bed bug will need a blood meal to grow. It will feed and grow by moulting (you may of seen the transparent moulted skins around your head board and bed, each one of these skins is left after the bed bug feeds and grows, in much the same as a crab grows) each moulted skin is a sign that that bed bug has had a feed of blood and grown another stage closer to breeding maturity. 5 moults and it will be ready to reproduce.

For this reason one of the chemicals we use is an I.G.R. (insect growth regulator). This chemical means that even if the bed bugs are resistant to insecticides, that all the eggs it lays will not function, they simply won't hatch out. Breaking the cycle.

The beds must be slept in!!!

 

Bed bugs can go into a kind of hibernation if temperatures drop or there are no food sources for them to suck the blood of. This is called diapause. In bed bugs, if the temperature drops below 13 degrees C or there are no blood food sources for them to feed on (you), they can go into this diapause state for up to a year!!!

This is why our chemicals have an extremely high residual quality (they keep working for a long time). This is also why we give you the printable pre/post-treatment plan (that we hope you have already looked through).

BED BUG TREATMENT OPTIONS

BED BUG CHEMICAL TREATMENT

 

The Pest Interceptors Bed Bug Eradication Team use a 3 pronged chemical attack. A super effective professional strength insecticide that has a huge residuality (it keeps killing for months), an I.G.R. (insect growth regulator) which means the eggs laid by the adults will fail to hatch out. And, an 'entrapping' chemical formulation that works by external immobilization. (Once it touches the bed bug it literally stops the bed bug in its tracks!) like they are frozen in time, not a nice way to go, but I don't think you will mind!

BED BUG HEAT TREATMENT

 

The Pest Interceptors Bed Bug Eradication Team is equipped with state of the art technology that heats each room of the house to 50 degrees centigrade. At 50 degrees the adult bed bugs desiccate (dry out) and the eggs basically cook, therefore never hatching out. Again, not a nice way to go, but I don't think you will mind too much after the hell of living with bed bugs.

COMBINED BED BUG HEAT AND CHEMICAL TREATMENT

 

Despite the high success rate of  chemical bed bug treatments, or, using high heat to treat bed bugs, there is always the chance of one pregnant female hiding away where neither heat or chemical can get to her. Sometimes a neighbour may have a bed bug problem, and even though your house is clear of bugs, as the population next door grows, they will sometimes find their way back into your home. This is why bed bugs are so, so, hard to get rid of permanently.

The Heat and Chemical Combined Bed Bug Treatment is the crème de la crème of bed bug treatments. The two full procedures at the same time have a remarkable affect!

We even offer an industry breaking FOUR MONTH GUARANTEE*!!! Did I say breaking, perhaps I should say industry SMASHING four month guarantee*.
