Do You Have Bed Bugs in Your Home?

Locating bed bugs can be challenging at times, and they can be hard to identify unless you’ve had prior experience.

But if you notice:

  • Wingless insects the size of an apple seed in or near your mattress
  • Red or brown spots on bed sheets or pajamas
  • Itchy, raised bites that only appear at night

You should immediately contact ScherZinger Pest Control to schedule an inspection and immediate treatment.


Getting Rid of Bed Bugs with HEATIGATION℠

It’s clear bed bugs are resilient pests that won’t give up without a fight. That’s why our professional pest control company offers Heatigation services — the most effective method to get rid of bed bugs in Columbus, Ohio.

Heatigation uses electronically controlled dry heat to raise household temperatures between 118­ and 145 degrees. This overwhelms the bed bugs and kills them within 90 minutes. After six to eight hours, your home is ready to re-enter.

What To Expect From Our Heatigation Services

Here’s what you can expect from the Heatigation services offered by ScherZinger Pest Control:

  1. We always begin with a thorough inspection to better understand your situation. An expert bed bug exterminator will visit your home and provide more information about the next steps for treatment.
  2. Our Heatigation treatment plan is a one-day service that uses the latest techniques to remove pests from your home. Even if bed bugs hide between your walls, our managed dry heat will reach them anyway.
  3. Once we’ve exterminated the bed bugs in your home, we use a HEPA vacuum to remove any visible debris. There are no pesticides, chemicals, or residual products, making it the easiest way to sleep soundly in your home.

Why are Bed bugs dangerous?

Bed bugs don’t seem that harmful on the surface, but don’t be fooled: their bite is much worse than their bark. These blood-sucking parasites require human blood to survive and can live for years bedded down around box springs, bed frames, and bedroom furniture.

You won’t have to worry about catching diseases from bed bugs, but you will need to worry about the other side effects. From itchy bites and skin irritation to insomnia, anxiety, and allergic reactions, you should never tolerate bed bugs in your home.

With ScherZinger Pest Control, you never will.

What damage do bed bugs cause?

Bed bugs can wreak havoc on your Columbus home, although probably not in the way you think. They won’t chew through wires or eat food in your pantry, but they will make it harder to sleep at night (and, to add insult to injury, may stain your bed sheets and upholstery).

Sleep deprivation can lead to all kinds of unwanted behaviors and side effects, from increased risk of car crashes to junk food cravings to decreased production. Get rid of bed bugs and get your much-needed sleep.

What are the signs of a bed bug infestation?

Keep an eye out for:

  • Live bed bugs hiding around small cracks in furniture, bed posts, bookshelves, and more
  • Red or brown spots on beds, upholstered furniture, blankets, and pillowcases
  • Bed bug eggs (which look like brown grains of salt)

If you’re waking up to skin irritation, itchy bites, or spotted bed sheets, now is the time to request a bed bug inspection.

Remember: a bed bug infestation won’t go away on its own. It will only get worse.


Where do bed bugs come from?

Plain and simple, bed bugs come from other people. They don’t (and can’t) exist without humans close by, so you’re most likely to bring them traveling home from hotels, airports, bus terminals, and similar spaces.

If you have friends who’ve experienced a bed bug infestation, or if you’ve visited a location at a higher risk for bed bugs, there’s a good chance these pests have spread to your home as well.

This means elimination should be your top priority.

The Dos and Don’ts of a Bed Bug Infestation

A bed bug infestation can be overwhelming at the best of times. But the first and most essential step is to avoid panicking about your situation.

Thousands of people get rid of bed bugs every year. With ScherZinger Pest Control, they can eliminate pests within hours.

We recommend you do not:

  • Try eliminating bed bugs on your own. This will likely end in frustration and disappointment, not to mention hundreds of dollars spent for nothing.
  • Use DIY methods. The most effective DIY bed bug treatment leaves 8% of the infestation behind. Since it only takes a single bug to reinfest your home, DIY is an ineffective strategy that could be disastrous to your emotional and financial well-being.
  • Wait for bed bugs to ‘go away.’ Bed bugs can survive up to a year without feeding, and female bed bugs produce up to seven eggs after each blood meal. Waiting for treatment could worsen the current infestation and increase the time it takes to get a bug-free home.

Instead, please do:

  • Document the situation with pictures and samples. You may want to identify personal belongings showing signs and symptoms of bed bug activity.
  • Contact ScherZinger Pest Control, a trusted bed bug exterminator in Columbus, OH. We would happily inspect your home and highlight an effective solution for your ongoing pest problem.
  • Continue scheduling bed bug inspections in the future. The faster you spot a potential bed bug problem, the faster you can eliminate it (and prevent bed bugs from returning to your home).
