I think I might have bed bugs. What should I do?

Step 1

Stay calm.
Do not throw away mattresses and clothes.
Do not spray chemicals around your home, children, and pets.

Step 2

Live in an apartment? Call your landlord or property manager first.
If your landlord does not have a pest control company under contract, have them contact Debug directly.

Step 3

Debug will send a technician to your home.
The technician will perform a visual inspection for bed bugs and provide you (or your landlord) with a free estimate.
Treatment can begin as soon as the next day.
ALMOST NO PREP WORK IS REQUIRED BY YOU FOR OUR BED BUG TREATMENT.

Step 4

Debug will utilize the following bed bug control treatment methods to eliminate the bedbug infestation from your home:

  • Debug will encase all mattresses and box springs.
  • Debug will steam two feet around the affected area to ensure elimination, if necessary.
  • Debug will apply environmentally conscious pesticides:  dust treatment to eliminate bed bugs behind beds and switch plates, and a liquid treatment to the baseboards to eradicate any bed bugs hiding there.
