Bed Bugs

What you should know about bed bugs?

Bed bugs have been gaining notoriety through increased reports in homes, hotels, movie theaters and airports. Sherrill Pest Control continues innovating Tennessee bed bug extermination, inspection, detection and treatment options. The use of heat technologies combined with a comprehensive treatment plan can deliver a bed bug free environment for you.

Bed bugs like to hide in small cracks and crevices close to human environments. Bed bugs are most often found behind baseboards, wallpaper, upholstery and in furniture crevices; such as bed frames and mattresses.

Our Service Professionals can inspect your home or business and recommend a treatment plan to meet your needs. We can also arrange for a K-9 Tennessee bed bug inspection for those “hard-tofind” infestations and large properties.

Adult bed bugs are ¼-inch in length. Visually they appear oval in shape and are flattened from top to bottom. They are reddish-brown and wingless.

What’s Included?

If your home or business has been infested, it is imperative to seek professional assistance from a licensed pest control service provider. Treatment options may include chemical and/or non-chemical methods (heat treatment), as well as reducing clutter and/or stored items in the affected areas.  We will come and inspect your home or business for bedbugs. We have treatment plans that fit your needs. Whether that is a one-time treatment or an ongoing plan for your home, apartment complex, theaters or anywhere that people might sleep.

 

How do I prevent a Bed Bug infestation?

Bed Bug infestations can originate from many sources. The most common sources are in luggage that is harboring bed bugs and/or their eggs, and purchasing used furniture. Some non-chemical bed bug prevention procedures should be implemented to help minimize the chances of bringing these pests into your home:

  • Vacuum suitcases thoroughly after returning from a vacation.
  • Check your bed sheets for tell-tale blood spots.
  • Consider bringing a large plastic trash bag to keep your suitcase in during hotel stays.
  • Carry a small flashlight to assist you with quick visual inspections.
