Worrying about having bed bugs can be just as stressful as having a real bed bug infestation.

Bed bugs are insects that feed on animal and human blood. The carbon dioxide that humans and pets exhale attracts them, so they gravitate toward sleeping areas where it is easy for them to feed at night. Bed bugs are small and can easily hide in mattress pads, box springs, drawers or any small spaces around a sleeping area. They can live for up to a year if all conditions are right, which includes an environment in which temperatures range from 21 to 28 degrees Celsius. During that one-year life span, a female bed bug can lay up to 400 eggs.
Oval shaped and flat, bed bugs are about 10 mm long. They are brown before feeding, changing to red once they feast on human or animal blood. Younger bed bugs are smaller and lighter coloured but also turn dark and red after feeding. They cannot jump from place to place and, because they are wingless, cannot fly, and smooth metal or other polished surfaces are a challenge for them to climb. The eggs of a bed bug are white, roughly a millimetre long and not easily detected by the human eye.
These creepy crawlers most often feed on areas of your body that are exposed, including the arms, legs, face and neck. The lesions left behind, which can be either flat or raised, are red and itchy and sometimes present in groups of three that form a straight line. While many people have little to no reaction to the bed bug saliva injected during a bite, some will develop large blood or fluid-filled welts. The allergic reaction from a bite is temporary and harmless, as bed bugs do not spread diseases. While the bites are irritating and uncomfortable, the only danger you face is if you develop an infection from scratching them too much or not keeping them clean.
Why use Cryonite for Bed Bugs?
Cryonite kills insects by freezing them. The freezing process is rapid and reaches a very low temperature. In order to be effective the speed is essential. Used for the elimination of crawling insects through all stages of life, Cryonite is a non-toxic patented technology that eliminates bed bugs. The Cryonite system releases CO2 as "snow" which when applied to the infested sites quickly kills bed bugs, cockroaches and flour beetles on contact.
Worried about down time as a university, hospital or restaurant? The Cryonite system is poison free and eliminates insects without leaving a residue making post treatment work unnecessary. Cryonite can be used directly on food production, mattresses and electronic equipment and can be used anywhere including homes, bakeries, hotels, universities, shelters, schools, apartment buildings, and healthcare facilities. Also since there is no residue hotel guests or apartment tenants can inhabit their rooms immediately after treatment.

These dogs have been trained to successfully locate narcotics, explosives and ammunition for decades and have keen senses to locate bed bugs and termites. Long before humans can see any visible signs of bed bugs, K-9's can sense their presence through walls, floors and even underground, which ensures utmost accuracy. Early detection is key!

To eliminate bed bug infestations another solution is Thermal Remediation. This is a non-chemical, non-toxic approach that will penetrate wall cavities, mattresses and other areas that are difficult to reach. By applying heat evenly throughout a structure, we are able to kill bed bugs wherever they are hiding. This process will kill all of the growth stages of the bed bug, including the eggs. Thermal Remediation is a great process for certain bed bug problems. Although the cost is significantly higher than conventional treatments, in some applications it is the best choice.
We do not offer Thermal Treatment. In our 30+ years experience treating bed beds, we have found the highest success rate in bed bug elimination using the conventional method.
