Frequently Asked Questions
What time of year do bed bugs come out?
Bed bugs can be found throughout the year, as they don’t die out in colder conditions and can actually adapt to them. If there are any bed bugs present within your property, they generally stay put and make it their home permanently unless removed by an experienced pest management professional. In order to effectively control the bed bug population on your property, at least two treatment sessions may be required.
How often do you really need pest management?
Your pest management needs will vary in frequency due to a variety of factors. The primary factor is the type of pest you’re dealing with. Bed bugs, for instance, may require more than one treatment session in addition to an initial property inspection. The second treatment is used to take care of any surviving bed bugs, ensuring that they don’t reproduce. Follow-ups are also important to ensure that the applied treatment has effectively addressed the pest problem. This is one example of how pest management is generally not a “one and done” task but rather an ongoing process. Your professional Orkin Canada technician will also provide recommendations on ways to minimize the risk of an infestation reoccurring in the future.
Should I throw out my mattress if I have bed bugs?
Normally, you won’t need to throw anything out. There’s a myth that you need to toss out your belongings and start completely fresh when faced with a bed bug infestation, but, in actuality, most bed bug infestations can be treated or managed without requiring you to discard any potentially infested materials. Treatments can consist of a combination of heat, vacuuming, steaming, and/or targeted application. Mattress, box spring and pillow encasements can help keep furniture and other belongings in use.
In instances where belongings like mattresses are heavily infested and beyond continued use, disposal of these needs to be carried out carefully. This disposal process involves completely wrapping the infested object and attaching a label marking that the item is not safe for use. This ensures that infested furniture/objects cannot be reused, while also minimizing the risk of bed bugs spreading to someone else’s property.
