Bed Bug Inspections
Bed bugs? Bite back!
Our bed bug inspection options are customized to each client’s specific needs – business and homeowner alike. There are many things to consider such as the layout of the area to be inspected, the severity of the problem, the number of rooms impacted, and the size of these rooms. One of our special services specialists at Wil-Kil can help you decide what the best fit is for your situation.
Wil-Kil’s technician will thoroughly inspect your property for bed bugs. Our inspection will look at areas like headboards, mattresses and bedding, nightstands and even living room furniture for bed bug signs like dark spots and the actual presence of a bed bug. It is necessary that a licensed professional do this type of inspection, as they are trained to distinguish between a bed bug or other type of pest. They will also know of and search the areas most commonly infested by bed bugs, which may not be information he average person has. This is the ideal inspection method for single-family homes or hotels and apartments where only a few rooms need to be searched.
Wil-Kil was the first pest control company in the upper Midwest to offer bed bug canine inspections. Our team of canines are certified on an annual basis by the National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association (NESDCA). Our dogs (Bull, Daisy and Jack) use their keen sense of smell to detect live bed bugs and viable bed bug eggs. Wil-Kil’s canine teams can find the bed bugs within minutes, making the inspection more accurate and cost-effective compared to traditional detection methods.
To ensure the safety of our canines, we have inspection preparation guidelines that must be followed, some of those rules include:
Wil-Kil’s eco-friendly bed bug heat treatment circulates hot air at temperatures over 120 degrees throughout infested areas to kill bed bugs and their eggs. Before our thermal radiation specialists can begin heat treatment, there are preparation measures that need to be taken.
Bed bugs are back after a long dormancy and are on the rise in Madison, Green Bay and throughout Wisconsin. They are rapidly infesting homes as well as many commercial facilities especially those with high turnover rates such as: hotels, movie theaters, college dorms and hospitals.
