Bed Bugs in Hilton Head - Exterminate - Kill 

by: Garey Clark  Published - 03-10-2014

Bedbugs or bed bugs are small parasitic insects of the family Cimicidae (most commonly Cimex lectularius). The term usually refers to species that prefer to feed on human blood. All insects in this family live by feeding exclusively on the blood of warm-blooded animals. The name 'bedbug' is derived from the insect's preferred habitat of houses and especially beds or other areas where people sleep. Bedbugs, though not strictly nocturnal, are mainly active at night and are capable of feeding unnoticed on their hosts.
A number of health effects may occur due to bed bugs including skin rashes, psychological effects and allergic symptoms. Diagnosis involves both finding bed bugs and the occurrence of compatible symptoms. Treatment is otherwise symptomatic.
Bedbugs have been known by a variety of names including wall louse, mahogany flat, crimson rambler, heavy dragoon, chinche, and redcoat. Largely eradicated as pests in the developed world (primarily through the use of DDT) in the early 1940s, bedbugs have seen a resurgence since about 1995.

Bites and Concerns
Bed bugs usually bite people at night while they are sleeping. They feed by piercing the skin with an elongated beak through which they withdraw blood. Engorgement takes about three to 10 minutes, yet the person seldom knows they are being bitten. Bed bugs normally do not reside on people like head or body lice ? immediately after feeding they crawl off and reside elsewhere to digest their meal. Symptoms after being bitten vary with the individual. Many develop an itchy red welt or localized swelling within a day or so of the bite. Others have little or no reaction, and in some people the reaction is delayed. Unlike flea bites that occur mainly around the ankles, bed bugs feed on any skin exposed while sleeping (face, neck, shoulders, back, arms, legs, etc.). The welts and itching are often wrongly attributed to other causes, such as mosquitoes. For these reasons, infestations may go a long time unnoticed, and can become quite large before being detected. The likelihood of bed bugs increases if the affected individual has been traveling, or had acquired used beds or furnishings before symptoms started to appear. Bed bugs also are suspect if you wake up with itchy bites you did not have when you went to sleep. Conversely, it is important to recognize that not all bites or bite-like reactions are due to bed bugs. 

Confirmation requires finding and identifying the bugs themselves, which often requires the help of a professional.​

Why Are Thermal Heat Treatments More Effective ?

Sensor Bed Bug Dogs - Hilton Head

At our Hilton Head Bed Bugs exterminator company, we use the most trusted and proven methods to control and eliminate bed bugs. Call us if you suffer from bed bugs in Hilton Head Area.

Our Sensor Bed Bug Dogs are specially trained to define the absence or presence of bed bugs in all types of structures. 

The dogs olfactory senses are thousands of times better than ours.

We as humans think in terms of vision because that is our greatest sense. Even in speech we say "you should have seen what I saw" or "see it may way". If the dog could talk they would say "you should have smelled what I smelled" or "smell it my way"
The dogs are introduced to live bed bugs at an early age. They learn to distinguish between the scent and any others. We use a combination of all castes and eggs in the calibration exercises to "fine tune" their decision making process.
By using these working dogs we can determine which rooms or units have activity and which do not. Therefore you can spend your treatment money wisely and take out the guesswork ! 

Bed Bugs - No resistance to High Temperatures

Historically, bed bug treatments have primarily used chemicals to reduce and control the pest. Recently, pesticides have shown to be ineffective in managing infestations with single bed bug treatments. An informal survey of pest control operators conducted by an entomologist at the University of Massachusetts found that 68% of allbedbug infestations require three or more treatments, 26% require two treatments, and 6% require just one. Recently research show they are actually adapting and creating thicker shells to withstand pesticide exposure.

Another concern with pesticide use is the development of resistance to the pesticides used in the treatment of bed bugs. The Integrated Pest Management Association found that by 1956, DDT resistance was so widespread that the control method had to be changed to Malathion. Results from current research conducted by the University of Kentucky show that bed bug resistance to insecticidal products that have pyrethroids as an active ingredient has become significant. The excessive use of pesticide solutions may result in the bed bug developing greater resistance to current methodologies. Oftentimes this leads to overcompensating by increasing amounts of chemicals. This can be a dangerous practice. Clark's Heat Treatment is a simpler control methodology which alters a bed bug’s natural environment, making it lethal to the bedbug.

Pesticides can also pose a threat to the environment. DDT was an effective chemical in significantly treating bed bug occurrences in the United States before it was banned in 1972 because of the reproductive effects to birds from chronic exposure to DDT. Bird exposure to this insecticide mainly occurs through the consumption of aquatic and/or terrestrial species that have been exposed to DDT (WHO 1989). Like other chemicals, DDT was able to work its way through the ecosystem and cause adverse health and reproductive effects to many animals in the food chain.

Finally, some people may be sensitive to chemicals as a result of neurological or other medical disorders. These people may not have the option to use chemical solutions as part of their control method. Clark's Heat Treatment  is a non-chemical process and therefore is the practical solution for people with chemical sensitivities and is ideal for treating health care facilities, hospitals, and schools where chemicals are not an option. For Heavy Infestations we also use some pesticides to ensure elimination by creating a containment spray and also using encasements on mattresses and box springs.
