Ampm exterminators treatment of a bed bug infestation requires a partnership between the householder and the exterminator. We do not recommend that householders take this task upon themselves as over the counter pesticides are not designed for treatment of bed bugs. Only recently have professional products become available which are designed specifically for bed bugs. At Ampm exterminators, we have a proven method that has worked for years. Our method starts by sending a treatment preparation sheet to the client. The preparation sheet guides our client through the process of preparing the space for treatment while not spreading the bed bugs around the rest of the living space. Most people choose to do this part themselves, but we do offer complete preparation services as well. The actual treatment involves careful treatment of the area according to pesticide labels with treatments which leave a residual for ongoing protection. Also we employ some physical exclusion methods to make it impossible for a bed bug to get a blood meal. This should only be done by a trained professional pest control.
