Bed Bug Removal Berkhamsted

EPC Pest Control Services

We specialise in Bed Bug Removal in Berkhamsted, with over 30 years of experience in the industry we can quickly identify the problem and recommend the best treatment to remove the infestation and deter bed bugs from returning in the future.

Over time bed bugs have become resistant to insecticides so we have invested in chemical free heat treatment machinery to eradicate the bed bugs from your property. Ensuring that the treatment is maintained at the correct temperature for the correct length of time allows the treatment to take full effect and kill the bed bugs and other insects.

Using the latest technology we can remotely monitor the heat via WiFi using sensors to ensure we maximise the kill rate and remove the bed bug infestation. This chemical free treatment process ensures all the bed bugs and any eggs are killed preventing any re-infestation.

Our process uses only heat so there are no toxins left on surfaces or dispersed into the air, it is completely chemical free. Treatment is generally completed in one visit because all life stages of the bed bugs are killed at the same time and people can return to the property within 6 - 12 hours.

Heat Treatment

Using discreet industrial heaters which can be quickly set up to treat your property the heat treatment acts as a closed system. The heat is recycled inside the building through an intake port, passing over heating coils and then blown into the treatment area. Each time the air passes through the heater it is able to heat it even more to produce the high temperatures required.

Our heaters use thermal regulator switches to enable us to set them to the required temperature and maintain this for the required amount of time. Using remote sensors we can then regularly monitor the heat levels from a safe distance. Our heater provide a 100% kill rate, 100% of the time.

On completion of the treatment our technician will leave a report with you with details of the treatments and recommendations to help prevent further infestations.

Facts About Bed Bugs

Bed Bug Removal Berkhamsted

Bed Bugs conceal themselves very well although they are visible to the human eye. Most of the time they will remain undetected, hiding in cracks and crevices in woodwork or plaster. They favour soft furnishings and are often found around the arm joints of armchairs or settees. Adult bed bugs are 4 - 5mm in length and a mahogany brown colour with long well developed legs with efficient tarsal claws to enable them to cling on during feeding.

Bed bugs need to be where their host is for an extended period. In a bedroom or lounge they will come out from their hiding places at night. The initial warning of a growing infestation is from being bitten. They will find a bare patch of skin and force the feeding tube of its mouthparts through the skin using its saliva which contains a chemical to stop the blood from clotting. It is this saliva that causes the itch and swelling associated with the bite.

Problems caused by Bed Bugs

The bite from a bed bug can be very irritating and if numbers multiply the amount of bites could become such that the host may become anaemic through blood loss, although this is very rare.

The irritation caused by the saliva of a bed bug can be very nasty especially if the host has sensitive skin. The bites can itch which if scratched too much can create open wounds that can become infected. Try not to scratch and ask your local chemist or Doctor for medication to help ease the itchiness.

Best pest control. Always there to re assure and utmost professionalism.

Used EPC for the first time when they came to deal with mice at 2am and since then I would not use anyone else. Clearly know what they are doing unlike many other companies in this field. Highly recommended.

Wow is all I can say, we had Bed Bugs in our property for months, we had a couple of well known companies in to deal with the issue, which they could not do..

They used just chemicals, after talking to EPC about a heat treatment and the treatment involved we went to the extra expense of trying it, at last we can sleep Bed Bug free, it is a bit expensive, but well worth the money when you see what they do, thanks again guys.
