Bed Bug Preventative Treatments
At The Bugman Pest Control, we understand that a bed bug infestation can get out of control fast, causing stress and discomfort, so don’t wait until you have an infestation, call or text Bugman today at 604-854-2847 to set up a preventative plan!
What is a Prevention Plan?
A prevention plan includes 4 Aprehend treatments (one every 3 months) to your house or business. During each treatment, we will apply the pesticide to the interior perimeter of your home, in all rooms on all levels, focusing specifically on the baseboards. We will also treat around all beds and bedframes, and any other areas where an infestation is commonly found, such as around couches and chairs. During each treatment, we will also complete an inspection to confirm that no infestation has developed.
Why Do I Need a Treatment Every 3 Months?
The product we use is very effective against bed bugs, but it only lasts on surfaces for up to 90 days. As such, re-treatment is needed every 3 months to ensure your home or business is always kept protected.
Is it possible to only have 1 treatment done?
Definitely! If you have guests coming to visit, or you’re taking a trip, and you’re worried about bed bugs making their way into your home, we can do a one-time preventative treatment. This will ensure that all bed bugs that make their way into your home within 90 days of the treatment, will die shortly after. If you want to live worry-free knowing you do not have a bed bug infestation, call today to book your preventative spray!
Does This Mean I’ll Never Have Bedbugs?
No, unfortunately, we cannot prevent bed bugs from showing up. This will however prevent them from staying, as they will die within 10 days of coming into contact with the pesticide.
We can guarantee that you will not have a bed bug infestation, as it takes approximately 35-40 days for a bed bug to reach a reproductive stage, which won’t be possible if your house or business is protected with Bugman’s bed bug prevention plan.
Who Should Utilize a Bed Bug Prevention Plan?
Any business that is at high risk for an infestation, including hotels, Air Bnb’s, daycares, theatres, and anywhere else that has a high volume of people regularly coming and going. For those who have residential properties, it is recommended if you travel regularly, or if you just want peace of mind.
Do You Offer a Guarantee?
Of course! We’ll give you the Bugman guarantee that your property will not get a bedbug infestation. If a bedbug is somehow able to withstand our pesticide and causes an infestation, we will complete a heat treatment right away.
If you think that’s too good to be true and are looking for the catch, there isn’t one! Okay, there is a small one. If you cancel one of your quarterly visits, we can’t guarantee you won’t get a bed bug infestation, so if you get an infestation in the quarter where you missed your visit, you will not be eligible for the Bugman guarantee.
How Much Does it Cost?
Depending on the size of your property, the cost is $200-$400 per visit, which works out to $800-$1600 per year
Is it worth it? Well, we’ll leave that decision up to you. All we can say is a bed bug infestation, if caught early, can cost up to $2000 to resolve, and one that isn’t caught right away can cost up to $4000 to resolve.
If you’re ready to jump on a bed bug prevention plan, don’t hesitate, text or call Bugman today at 604-854-2847, and we’ll make sure the bed bugs don’t take over your property
