Bed Bug Eradication
Many people understand that bed bugs are unwanted houseguests.

Our customers have plenty of questions when it comes to what we offer and we want to help you in the best way possible!
The Problem With Bed Bugs
There are various ways that bed bugs can enter your home, but these pests typically hitch a ride in on luggage or used furniture. Since they are small and do not move fast, they cannot make it into your home without hitching a ride onto various items, so thoroughly checking these items is the only thing you can do to keep bed bugs out of your house.
Once they make their way inside, bed bugs will hide within your furniture cushions and mattresses. While you sleep, these pests come out and feed on your blood. Even though they have never linked bed bugs to disease transmission, a prolonged bed bug infestation can often lead to insomnia, anemia, and more. It's very important to watch for the signs of a bed bug infestation to catch it early. These pests are very small and only come out at night, so you will most likely notice the signs before you notice the pests themselves.
These signs include:
- Red, itchy bite marks on your skin in a straight line or zig-zag pattern
- Rust-colored rings from bed bug excrement
- Musty odors in the furniture
If you notice a bed bug problem in your home, keep in mind that store-bought sprays or vacuuming the surface level of the furniture will only eradicate a small portion of the infestation. In fact, most of the bed bugs are beneath the cushions along with their eggs. That's why it takes professional treatments to eradicate an entire bed bug infestation.
Our Bed Bug Treatment Plan That Puts You First
Our bed bug treatment plan is a proven process that will guarantee you a bed bug-free home following the pattern of inspection, treatment, and a follow-up appointment to ensure your satisfaction.
First, we will speak with you about how long you've had bed bugs and where you see the signs the most. Then, we will inspect the bedrooms, linens, mattress, box springs, and frames looking for evidence of bed bugs and the origin of the infestation. We will also check common areas like family rooms, couches, and furniture and develop a treatment plan.
Our treatment procedure involves the industry-leading chemical treatment, Apprehend, along with a dusting treatment. This treatment protocol will require you to leave your house for four hours.
We will also do a crack and crevice treatment in the impacted rooms and treat all areas of the room, along with box springs, couches, coffee tables, and more.
Since bed bugs are some of the most difficult pests to eradicate (small, elusive, numerous, and skittish), we will always come back a week after treatment to ensure the problem is completely taken care of. If we find any issues during the follow-up service call, we will take care of it. This process ensures your complete satisfaction, which is our only objective at Black Diamond Pest Control. Call us today for your free inspection that can get to the source of your hazardous bed bug problem.
