Bed Bugs

Bed Bug Infestation

Bed bugs are one of the worst types of infestation a person can have in their home. What makes bed bugs so repulsive is that fact that bed bugs feed on blood, including those of your loved ones. Additionally, they reproduce extremely fast with each female laying up to 5 eggs each day. That means in a bed bug’s 300 day lifespan a female bed bug can lay over 500 eggs.

Treatment Options

Heat Remediation

Time to turn up the heat on Bed Bugs!

Not all heat equipment is the same. We ONLY USE an industry approved electric heat system. DO NOT TRUST home-made propane or gas induced systems.

Why Use Heat to Treat Bed Bugs?

  • All insects have lethal temperature thresholds when all stages of the insect’s life cycle are killed. Heat allows us to reach these lethal target temperatures and eliminate bed bugs throughout the home.
  • Heat limits the total amount of pesticides used.
  • Preparation of the home is minimized compared to conventional treatment methods.
  • Can re-enter the home soon after the heat treatment has been performed.
  • Personal items and furniture can be retained following treatment that otherwise may have been discarded with conventional treatment methods.

How Does Heat Eliminate Bed Bugs?

  • Electric heaters are placed throughout the home to heat the space between 120 – 135 degrees Farenheit.
  • Wireless sensors are strategically placed throughout the home to ensure lethal temperatures are reached throughout the space and to identify cold spots.
  • High temperature fans are introduced to move the hot air throughout the space and reach the cracks and crevices bed bugs hide.

Conventional Bed Bug Solutions

Conventional bed bug treatments are also known as chemical treatments. This method is more of a traditional approach in the treatment for bed bugs.

This treatment is designed so that different pesticide formulations are utilized in strategic areas of the home. These formulations may include liquids, aerosols and dusts. Each formulation is designed so that each work a little differently. One product may provide a more instant knock down effect while another product may give a longer residual effect.

We implement this approach to provide the most successful treatment possible.

The pros and cons of conventional treatments

OPC Pest Control - Conventional Bed Bug Treatment


  1. This method is typically more cost effective than heat remediation.
  2. The multiple formulations provide both an instant knock down while also providing a longer residual effect.
  3. Our service commitment carries a 90-Day Service Commitment and also includes two services performed within a 30 day period.


  1. This method requires significantly more preparation for the homeowner. The preparation is more intensive because of the need to handle and process all the furniture, personal items and clothing during the treatment. Many have related the preparation process as if they were moving. This preparation can be time consuming, but without preparation success can be difficult to achieve.

"I have the Four Seasons plan with OPC. I am so pleased with this. I had a problem with big black ants and this plan has gotten rid of them. I have peace of mind about pests now."
Pamela Troutman
"We have been OPC customers for several years. They check for termites and we also have the internal check for bugs. They have immediately responded when we have had a problem especially with silverfish. This year we added the mosquito control. The mosquito population is definitely down and a side benefit is we have no flies this year. OPC is easy to deal with and professional in dealing with our pests. Watch out bugs, we are OPC customers.” "
Gary Kingry
"Adam is polite, professional, patient, and knowledgeable about his work. He not only set traps to catch what appears to be a single mouse, he also located possible entry points. For sure I will advise friends and family who have any pest issues to call OPC."

"Krissy (spelling might be wrong, sorry) was on time and was very pleasant throughout the whole experience. She informed me of what she was applying in terms of chemicals and how it was child and pet friendly and the process of getting rid of the ants.
