Preventing Bed Bugs When You Travel

( "Bed Bug Proof" Your Travel Plans from Joelle Garguilo on Vimeo).

Bringing back souvenirs from your vacation can be fun, but not when you bring back bed bugs in San Diego. Watch this video to find out how to prevent bed bugs when you travel.

Start by using a hard shell suitcase instead of fabric, since they are less likely to submit to an infestation. Although your first instinct may be to walk into your hotel room and place your luggage on your bed, it is actually better off being stored in the bathtub. Look around the bed area for any evidence of bed bugs before lying down; this includes bed bugs themselves as well as fecal spotting.

If you accidentally pick up bed bugs, call Payne Pest Management at (877) 365-5629. Our pest control company is proud to serve the San Diego area with termite, bed bug, and rodent control. Feel free to visit our website to learn more about our fumigation services.

Bed Bug Treatment Options for Multi-Family Homes

Regardless of what kind of home you live in, you may never be completely immune to bed bugs in San Diego or any other city. Bed bugs may jump into your suitcase, grocery bag, or purse at any point and take a ride back to any kind of home. Here is a look at a few bed bug treatment options for multi-family homes.

Chemical Treatment
One of the most prominent methods of dealing with bed bugs is chemical treatment. Professional pest control services will typically perform bed bug treatment using insecticides, and in many cases they will use a combination of multiple pesticides in order to complete the job. Pesticide treatment should be very carefully planned and labels should be analyzed thoroughly so that only approved chemicals are used; this is especially important when it comes to treating things like sleeping surfaces where human contact will be made.

Non-Chemical Treatment
The ideal bed bug infestation treatment will involve the use of both chemical and non-chemical treatments. Vacuums, steam cleaners, and thermal treatments are popular forms of non-chemical treatment for bed bugs. While vacuums and steam cleaners are effective in removing bed bugs as well as their waste, extreme heat or cold can help to eliminate the infestation; they may be killed by freezing at 23 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 days or overheating at 120 degrees Fahrenheit for just 2 hours.

Follow Up
Since bed bugs are known for their thorough infestations, a follow up treatment is always necessary. This should take place two weeks after the initial treatment and should be as intensive as the treatment itself. If any signs of bed bugs are discovered, the treatment processes should be repeated once again.

We are happy to serve the San Diego area with commercial and residential pest control as well as bed bug, termite, and rodent control.

Spotlight on Cockroach Infestations

Finding cockroaches in Orange County is not typically a positive experience. Fortunately there are ways to prevent this from occurring, and there are also methods of pest control that you or a professional fumigation service can use to eliminate your unwanted guests. Read on as we put the spotlight on cockroach infestations.

Housing Cockroaches
Cockroaches do not need much to survive; they can thrive in the presence of food, water, and shelter, as long as it is warm. Although it is not a determining factor, leaving food out around the house may sweeten the deal for these pests. They are just as likely to infest high quality hotels and clean estates as they are to make a home in a run-down building or small apartment. It is wise to take a walk around your house and seal any gaps that you may come across near doors, windows, or pipes.

Home Pest Control
The first thing that you should do in the event that you find cockroaches in your home is make your house less appealing. You can start by eliminating their shelter; get rid of any cardboard boxes, piles of newspaper, or paper bags that these pests can use to hide. You can also lie out adhesive strips that trap the roaches. Strips that have caught more cockroaches tend to be closer to their nesting place, which helps you find the core of their infestation.

Professional Fumigation and Pest Control
If your cockroach infestation appears to be in an advanced stage, do not hesitate to call a professional pest control service. Pest control professionals can provide additional expertise as well as effective fumigation services that can help end your infestation for good.

The Termite Inspection Process

If you believe you may have termites on your property it is important to look into termite control in Orange County as soon as possible. Watch this video clip to learn more about the termite inspection process.

Unlike bed bugs, mice, and other pests and rodents, termites are capable of attacking the structure of your house. Your pest control professional may first look for wood that is stored near the house; this is presents an easy opportunity for the pests to gain entry. Termites are also attracted to leaking hot water systems and high soil levels.

Call Payne Pest Management at (877) 365-5629 to learn more about the termite inspection process. We are Orange County’s go-to commercial pest control service and we are happy to take care of your bed bugs as well as termites.
