    Bed bug infestations are becoming more and more common. Experiencing these pests in your home can be traumatic and frightening. Unfortunately, there is little one can do to prevent these nasty invaders from taking over your home or business. These beasties are attracted to CO2 (carbon dioxide), which is why they’re attracted to us at night while we sleep. You won’t be able to feel the bites until the next morning when you see red bumps and they start to itch. A common misconception is that bed bugs are attracted to dirty homes, but this is not true. Bed bugs can happen to anyone at any time, wreaking havoc on your home or business and causing significant anxiety. Once bed bugs have found a home, they are extremely difficult to get rid of. These pests are quick and agile, capable of fitting into the smallest crevices in your home. They stow themselves in luggage, curtains, beds, cupboards, and virtually any other spaces they find. These critters can live in homes, hotels, office spaces, and even cars hitching a ride on your belongings to wherever you go.

    Treatment of bed bugs is difficult. Once they’re in your home, they’ll want to stay there. The experts at Platinum Pest Control know just what it takes to get rid of these annoying pests. Our method of fumigation is 100% effective. All stages—eggs, nymphs, and adults—of bed bugs are not capable of surviving, and this method requires minimal preparation from you. Our fumigation technique is capable of penetrating every crevice, crack, and cranny in your space, so you won’t have to worry about spaces you can’t see in your home or office. At-home solutions for bed bugs are often ineffectual and can actually cause them to spread, so you need an expert to solve this pest problem. Platinum Pest is one of the few companies outside New York City that treats bed bugs with fumigation, so you won’t have to worry about any bed bugs being left alive.
