A: Candles, plants, live animals, and medications need to be removed during the bed bug extermination.

Candles and medications can be put in the refrigerator. Live animals or plants need to be removed from the areas being treated for bed bugs. The way our bed bug extermination process works is that the house is brought up slowly to temperature over a long period of time. Electronics and furnishings will not be harmed by the process.

At 115-120 degrees, bed bugs, nymphs, and eggs are destroyed. We hold the treatment area at 135 degrees for three hours so that every nook and cranny where they can hide becomes a bed bug tomb! However, 135 degrees will not harm furniture, electronics, wallpaper, or your important belongings.

We will give you a pre-treatment list detailing exactly what to do with candles, plants, etc. so that you are prepared for the treatment before our technicians arrive. We arrive with our own power source for our electric heaters. When we leave, the bed bugs are gone.
