Over the years, rates of pest infestations have shot up all across Canada, particularly in multi-unit or strata spaces. These range from harmless spiders and pill bugs to biting insects. No matter how you slice it, bugs are bad houseguests but the ones that drink your blood are worst of all – particularly bed bugs! Don’t let these hitchhikers make a meal out of you when there is a Toodaloo team in your area. Expert Surrey bed bug removal services get rid of pest populations from homes, hotels and schools along with other commercial and strata spaces. No matter your property type, our experts can kick these bugs out, protecting owners, tenants and guests.
Pests get their names for a reason. Silverfish, for example are so called because of their silver bodies and slithery movements. While they do not have a ton of physical identifiers, bed bugs definitely have habits! By setting up camp near a sleeping host, these insects have consistent food sources and can go undetected over long periods. This makes bed frames, a mattress and box springs the perfect place to call home. These areas might as well be a 5-star resort for pests but bed bugs and their eggs can be found all over. Soft surfaces like couches or carpeting are common places to find populations hiding out, waiting for their next meal. Because populations are so wide-spread, it is important to contact a professional at the first sign of bites. Pest control companies have access to tools and training that can not only help eliminate your infestation but can prevent bed bugs from re-infesting your space.
Property owners are keen to protect themselves from infestations, so how do these insects get in? It is difficult to say how exactly pests creep inside, particularly in public spaces. Those who travel often are known to pick up hitchhikers in hotels and even on planes. Because it is so difficult to track movements of these unwanted visitors, it can take days or weeks to even find out that you are dealing with an infestation. Tossing sheets or clothing into a plastic bag and trying to dry clean eggs away might help a bit but proper bed bug control is more in-depth than that. If this sounds overwhelming to you, don’t worry – our Toodaloo technicians have got you covered with tracking, treatment and aftercare services.
This species of biting pests are not known to transmit disease, so there is no standard method of control. Without the threat of spreading disease, pest management is the responsibility of property owners or managers. Basic baits and sprays might make claims about killing bed bugs but these products will not get the results that you want and need. While laying traps might seem like an obvious treatment plan, there will always be bugs (and eggs left behind). Focusing on problem areas like mattresses will provide a superficial improvement but there will still be insects and eggs left behind on bed frames and headboards. Something as simple as forgetting to treat cracks and crevices around your living space can mean an unsuccessful bed bug treatment.
These pests are known to be some of the most stubborn around. Bed bugs are known to be able to survive extreme temperatures and long periods of starvation. Forget about using a rinse cycle to wash away pests or taking a vacation to starve insects out. Instead of taking up valuable time and resources, our Toodaloo technicians get right down to business! Treatments are designed to be environmentally friendly as well as being flexible to the needs of our clients. All it takes is one look at a product label to know that pesticides are bad for your health, so why would anyone want to introduce them into their home, never-mind their bedroom. This is why our team uses heat treatments to eliminate adult populations, followed up with use of a vacuum cleaner to suck up eggs. These methods make it possible to solve your bed bug problem without introducing harmful chemicals into your living environment.
In addition to being experts in their field, Toodaloo technicians are local to your area. This means that your property is never left on the backburner for aftercare. Each member of the Toodaloo team makes themselves available to answer any questions or concerns that their clients might have. Due to the stubborn nature of these pests, there is always a chance that initial treatments will need a follow-up. Instead of letting clients fend for themselves, our specialists will organize a post-treatment inspection to decide whether or not further steps are needed.
Our Toodaloo technicians are fully trained in various methods of pest removal and extermination, capable of handling any job, of any size, professionally and efficiently. Unlike some other pest control companies our removal solutions are environmentally friendly so you know that there are no harmful chemicals being sprayed throughout your home.
