    FACTS & INFORMATION Pest control Toronto


    Bed bugs are small in size and are flat and oval-shaped. They are a brownish colour but after feeding, they turn more of a red colour. Bed bugs are detectable by the naked eye once they are developed and look similar to Spider Beetles, Cockroach Nymphs, Carpet Beetles, etc.


    Upon mating, the eggs can hatch in 6-10 days. Bed bugs normally live for
    4-6 months but some can have a life span of up to 12 months, depending on the environment, temperature and food. A single bed bug can lay up to 200-250 eggs so the number of eggs can by multiplied in no time.


    Bed bugs feed on blood and their bites can be extremely itchy and uncomfortable. The bites look like a swollen red dot on your skin and will often be itchy. For those who have a reaction to the bite, it may cause a rash or eczema. Bites may look different, person to person, and every person may have a different reaction to bed bugs.


    Due to the size and shape of bed bugs, most people do not detect them until they wake up with a bite. Bed bugs are most active in the dark, during your sleep. If you notice random red brownish spots on your sheets or clothing, for example, those may be symptoms of bed bugs as well.

    Bed bugs are small, flat, oval-shaped critters. They are brownish, but after feeding, they turn redder in colour. Bed bugs are detectable by the naked eye once they are fully grown and look similar to spiders or carpet beetles, cockroaches or nymphs.

    Upon mating, they can hatch their eggs in six to 10 days. Bed bugs usually live for four to six months, but some can live up to a year. Their lifespan depends on the temperature and availability of food in their environment. One bed bug alone can lay up to 250 eggs, which is how bed bugs multiply so quickly.

    A bed bug’s primary source of food is blood, and their bites can be extremely uncomfortable and itchy. The bits appear as swollen, itchy red dots on your skin and typically appear in threes. Those who are allergic to their bite may get a rash or eczema. Bites can look different from person to person, and different people will have different reactions to bed bug bites.

    Because of the size and shape of bed bugs, most people do not detect them until they wake up covered in bites. Bed bugs are most active when it is dark while you are asleep. If you notice irregular red-brown spots on your sheets or clothing, it could be indicative of the presence of bed bugs.

    Bed bugs are often found in hotels, apartments, shelters and other places where people sleep. The pests can multiply quickly and cause an infestation. Bed bugs live in cracks and crevices in homes or areas near homes where they hide during the day. They only come out at night to feed on their host’s blood by biting exposed skin such as arms or legs while the person sleeps.

A professional pest control technician will be able to inspect all areas of your home, including mattresses and furniture if necessary. This allows them to see if there are any signs of bed bugs or their eggs within your belongings.

    Treatment plan

    The bed bug treatment plan is an important part of the pest control process. It helps to identify what steps you need to take for your particular situation, as well as any potential hazards that may arise during it.

    Our experts have put together a guide to help you better understand what goes into developing a treatment plan and how it can benefit you in the long run.

    Bed Bug Heat Treatment

    There are many non-chemical methods of killing bed bugs and the heat treatment is a safe and effective way that has been used by pest control professionals for decades. Bed bugs cannot survive temperatures above 49 degrees Celsius (120 degrees Fahrenheit), so any temperature above that will kill them. Bed bugs can be killed in 30 minutes when exposed to temperatures greater than 52 degrees Celsius (126 degrees Fahrenheit) over a period of time. This means that it’s possible to use heat as a method of killing bed bug eggs, nymphs, or adults without using potentially harmful chemicals on your personal belongings or belongings belonging to others in your home or apartment building.

    Thermal Remediation

    Thermal remediation is a process that utilizes heated air to eliminate bed bugs and their eggs. Once the temperature reaches 120 degrees Fahrenheit, the heat-sensitive pests are unable to survive. This process can be done in two ways:

    • Spot treating – An inspector will determine where the bed bugs are hiding and treat those areas specifically.
    • Whole home treatment – A technician will treat your entire home with a thermal fogger, which is similar to an air freshener machine but releases much hotter temperatures into every nook and cranny.

    Heat Treatment Facts

    Not only are bed bugs temperature sensitive, but they cannot survive temperatures of 64 degrees or higher. In fact, that’s the temperature at which bed bugs will die. A heat treatment for bed bugs is the most effective method by which to exterminate them from your home.
