A common misconception about bed bugs is that you can never get rid of them. All situations are different, but all bed bug infestations CAN BE ERADICATED!

Reliant Pest Management takes pride in knowing that we are one of the best in Boston at solving your bed bug problems. All technicians are sympathetic in your time of crisis, and know that time is of the essence for your sake and sanity. We want to make you comfortable in this process and get you and your family back to living your life.

A visual confirmation is needed to start a treatment. A Reliant technician will do a thorough inspection of all bedrooms and sitting areas and positively identify bed bugs as the source of your complaint. Bed bugs are a creature of habit and eventually gravitate towards its source of food - you. When you are sleeping, bed bugs will seek you out and get what is known as a bloodmeal.

You don't feel them biting but when you awake in the morning, you'll notice bite marks in area that were more than likely, at the head of the bed while you slept.

Don't Hesitate!!

Your situation could get worse! If ignored, bed bug infestations can increase and also spread to other areas. Isolate infected areas and call a professional bed bug expert immediately! Treatments can be scheduled promptly. Here is a bed bug preparation list that customers are responsible for when a Reliant bed bug treatment is scheduled.

Bed Bug Preparation List

This list is designed to help the customer prepare their home or apartment efficiently and in as little time as possible. That being said, please be aware of how much time you have to prepare before your scheduled treatment. Dont get overwhelmed we are here to help. Any questions, just ask! Usual areas of treatment and preparation will include all bedrooms and sleeping areas, including couches and living rooms.

Let's get started!

  1. Remove all linens and blankets from all beds. These items must be washed in hot water and dried in a normal clothes dryer. Once washed and dried, place items in plastic garbage bags and store bags in NON-TREATMENT areas including the kitchen, bathroom tub, basement or interior porch.
  2. Laundry is most important. All clothing must get laundered! Especially clothes used in your day-to-day rotation. After items are laundered place clean clothes in plastic garbage bags and store alongside other items.
  3. Empty closets and dressers of all items including clothing, toys, tools, shoes, etc. Place with other stored items.
  4. Remove miscellaneous items from atop dressers, bureaus, nightstands. These items include lamps, alarm clocks, tissue boxes, books, cups and glasses. If it's there-it shouldn't be during treatment. Remember what treatment method is going to be used. Usually a liquid solution is used to treat your bedrooms and living room. The reason for the removal of all miscellaneous items is to not damage any of your valuables.
  5. Move all beds and furniture 1-2 feet away from walls. All baseboards must be inspected and treated by a Reliant technician.
  6. Last but not least, vacuuming is important! If no vacuum is available please remove any items or trash located under and behind beds and couches.
  7. Remember all wood furniture in bedrooms and living rooms will be inspected and treated with a liquid solution. Mattresses, box-springs, and couches will be flipped up, bedframes will be rotated. The best preparation results in the technician having enough room to work efficiently.

If this list is something that cannot be physically achieved because of you or your tenants age or disability, Reliant Pest Management can provide preparation services that includes full laundry service.
