Long Island Bed Bugs Exterminator
At A&C Pest Management we have developed a bed bugs heat treatment which is unique. Our environmentally sound process eliminates them.
Bed bugs (Cimex Lectularius) are found throughout the world. The number of bed bugs is significantly increasing all throughout North America, in particularly New York.
No one truly understands the reason behind the increasing number of bed bugs in North America. The common belief is that the increase of bed bugs is due to reduction in the use of urban pesticides, the more extensive world travel of different cultures, and the growing resiliency to pesticides. The recent and sudden surge of bed bug infestations in both New York and Long Island has been the cause of anxiety and unrest within the general public. In addition to this unrest, the hotel industry has suffered from negative exposure and has resulted in the need to educate public health officials as well as pest control professionals on safeguarded and preventive measures.
Bed bugs are in the family cimicidae, small parasitic insects that feed exclusively on the blood of warm-blooded animals. It is important to be able to identify and distinguish species of bed bugs. For example, bat bugs (Cimex pilosellus) look similar to bed bugs, but control efforts must involve elimination of bats from a structure to be effective.
Over the past few years, there has been a compelling increase in the number of bed bug infestations in homes, hotels, apartments, colleges and universities as well as cruise ships. Being able to adapt to these conditions, it is no wonder that we are now able to recognize an infestation early and professional pest control companies such as A&C Pest Management are able to grasp a better hold on the situation to gain control and also provide preventative measures through the use of our K9 teams including Scout, the finest bed bug dog detection on Long Island and thermal remediation (bed bugs heat treatment). In this way, infestations in communities should decline.
Please review our website articles to better identify bed bugs as well as the options for eliminating them through bed bugs heat treatment or by Scout our bed bug dog detection “expert” from Long Island.
Bed Bug Dog Detection Long Island
Our Certified K9 Teams (The Bed Bug Sniffing Beagles)
In addition to bed bugs heat treatment, A&C Pest Management is the home of Scout, the only certified bed bug dog detector in Long Island. Scout was certified by the National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association (NESDCA). Scout went through rigorous training in Florida to help A&C Pest Management attain one of the best bed bug dog detectors in Long Island and the world. Even the most experienced human detector will have trouble finding bed bugs. They are considered to be one of the most challenging pests to find and control. This is why having a bed bug sniffing dog is so important to a successful extermination.
Scout works with A&C Pest Management in East Meadow, NY. He has been trained to sniff out bed bugs wherever they may be located. Usually, bed bugs nest in any soft material. However, they can be anywhere in a room. The name ‘bed bug’ derives from the fact that they traditionally are in beds or any other soft materials where people sleep. They can also reside in nontraditional areas, such as back seat cushions or seats in a movie theatre. It is Scout’s job to find all of the bed bugs, whether they are traditional or nontraditional. He sniffs them out, just like a bomb dog.
