Total Bed Bug Control For Raleigh, NC Homeowners

Waking up with bug bites and realizing you have bed bugs is not how anyone wants to start their day. Unfortunately, around one in five homes will experience a bed bug infestation each year. If you are one of the 20%, you don't have to worry. Southern Pest Solutions has a highly trained team that will assess your situation, implement a solution, and monitor activity to ensure our treatment works and that your home is free of bed bugs. Our local team of pest control experts serves Raleigh and the surrounding areas with the effective bed bug control you need.

Our Bed Bug Control Services

Our bed bug control service in Raleigh includes four parts for the most effective results.

1. Bed Bug Inspection

Bed bugs are small and prefer to hide, making identifying them with the naked eye difficult. Thankfully, our expert technicians are well-trained and know where to look and what to look for to identify a bed bug infestation. We'll perform a thorough inspection of your mattress, box spring, bed frame, head and footboard, walls, carpet, and more in the room where you are having problems. We'll also check adjoining rooms since bed bugs easily travel between rooms. This inspection helps us determine the severity of the infestation and the number of rooms affected so we can provide the necessary treatment to eliminate the problem.

2. Preparation Checklist

We'll share a preparation checklist with you before we perform your bed bug treatment which contains a list of things you need to do before we treat. It includes, but is not limited to, the following items:

  • Reduce clutter
  • Launder infested garments and linens
  • Dismantle bed frames
  • Remove dresser drawers
  • Clean the area. 

You must complete the items on this list before we treat your home. This step will drastically increase the effectiveness of your bed bug treatment.

3. Vacuum Treatment:

Before treating the affected areas with a product, we'll use a specialized vacuum to capture unsuspecting bed bugs and remove any eggs, exoskeletons, or molted skins they've left behind in your home. A good vacuuming not only removes bed bug particles but also encourages greater insecticide penetration when we get to the last step of the bed bug control process.

4. Chemical Application

We'll carefully apply our treatment in the affected rooms using a combination of liquid, aerosol, and dust products. Treatment areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Mattresses
  • Baseboards
  • Furniture
    • Nightstands
    • Chests
    • Dressers
    • Couches
    • Chairs

This treatment not only drives bed bugs from their hiding spots but also kills them on contact.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to throw away my mattress?

The answer to this question depends on your mattress’s condition and the size of the bed bug infestation. If there are holes or tears in the mattress, bed bugs and their eggs may be nested inside. So we usually recommend discarding the mattress in this case. But if your mattress is in good shape and the infestation isn’t severe, we carry mattress safe encasements and active guard liners. Both of these products are effective as preventative and proactive bed bug treatments.

What do bed bug bites look like & do they carry diseases?

Let’s set the record straight… bed bugs do NOT transmit diseases through their bites. They do, however, suck blood from their host with piercing mouthparts, but the bite itself is painless. Bed bugs also do not live under the skin. Their bites often appear as red, itchy bumps or welts on the skin, usually on the arms or shoulders. So if you’re noticing bites like this on your skin, please call us at 919-897-7125 today!

How do I prevent bed bugs from entering my home?

After we treat your home for bed bugs, we recommend that you inspect any used furniture you purchase before bringing it into your home. This is especially true for bed frames, mattresses, and couches. We also recommend that you check for bed bugs in your hotel room while traveling. You may want to inspect or vacuum your luggage and wash any clothing you used on this trip once you get home.

How much does a bed bug treatment cost?

Pricing for bed bug treatments starts at $250 for the first room treated. We add a flat rate of $100 per additional room if required. Your exact price will depend on the size of the infestation and how many rooms are affected. So we recommend you call 919-897-7125 to schedule your bed bug inspection today! We’ll check your mattress, box spring, bed frame, head & footboards, furniture, walls, and carpet for these blood-sucking pests.

Do I need to leave my home during the treatment?

In most cases, Yes. This depends on the severity of your bed bug infestation. On average, our bed bug treatments take 30 minutes to 2 hours per room to complete. Furthermore, it’s unlikely that all the bed bugs will be killed in the initial treatment, so we recommend at least one follow-up visit two weeks after the initial service is completed. To get an accurate estimate, please call 919-897-7125. We’ll gladly answer this question and any other bed bug questions you have.

How long do bed bug treatments last for?

We guarantee our bed bug treatment for a minimum of 30 days. Of course, most of our customers enjoy the results of our bed bug treatment for much longer than that. Introducing an infested item to the area is the most common reason for bed bugs to show up again. We do a great job of assessing your unique situation, implementing a proper solution, and monitoring activity after the job is done! To schedule your service, please call 919-897-7125.
