For comprehensive pest control service in Portland, trust in Family Home Pest Control. Bed Bugs have become a great problem in much of United States. They often hitch rides when people visit hotels that have bed bug problems and have not gotten proper bed bug removal.
Bed Bugs are bugs that require a blood meal to survive. Since they can survive months without feeding, they can travel great distances. They are considered a parasitic insect. They are nocturnal in nature, meaning that they feed at nighttime and hide during the day. They are attracted to the carbon dioxide that is given off by the human body.
Sometimes when they bite, they bite numerous times in a straight line or circle. These bites cause itching which is due to a secretion left in the body by the bug. Treatment for Bed Bugs usually requires an insecticide application in the area where people sleep at night. With professional bed bug removal, you won’t have to live with bed bugs for much longer.
Possible Bed Bug Treatment & Preemptive Bed Bug Control
Treatment for Bed Bugs is a little bit more expensive than other types of treatments. Preparation requires laundering of the sheets and removing all small items from the area to be treated. The applicator will treat all around the area where humans usually sleep. This would include the bed frame as well as nightstands and furniture near the bed.
Usually, we would treat the whole bedroom area baseboards and many cracks and crevices as well. Our company has a special combination of materials that we use that we have found to be extremely effective. However, due to the fact that Bed Bugs molt and continue to grow over a short period of time, three treatments is usually required about 10 days apart from each other.

How do you prevent pests?Pest prevention depends on what you’re trying to prevent. Some best practices we always advise customers to follow are to keep all food items (including those for pets) in air-tight containers. Make sure there are no leaks in your home (including the attic and basement). Mechanical exclusion involves sealing off all entry points into the home. This is difficult for homeowners to accomplish without help, but you can keep your lawn and surrounding areas clean and free of debris. If there are any trees or bushes that provide roof access for pests, move these away from the home or trim them shorter than the roof line.
How do you control pests?Our exterminators use the right method for the job. We take into account the property, pest type,
and residents of the home. Certain methods aren’t used when small animals or children are present. We always target our efforts as well. That means identifying paths your pest uses, where they are present, and using their feeding areas and times against them to achieve the fastest and most complete results.
How is pest control done?
There are three types of pest control procedures:
- Biological pest control: This uses chemical agents and may involve baits, pheromones, sprays, and repellants.
- Physical pest control: Exterminators manually remove pests and use control methods like barriers, sealants, and environmental manipulation to control pests.
- Mechanical pest control: Mechanical devices include traps, bait stations, and other devices designed to prey on the behavior of a specific pest.
