What To Expect From Our Bed Bug Treatment In Baltimore

ATC Pest Control has removed the guesswork and unknowns from traditional bed bug treatments. Our company uses the most advanced bed bug treatments in the world, alongside cutting-edge identification techniques and K-9 handlers.

We offer two types of treatment: thermal remediation and natural biopesticide.

Thermal Remediation

Thermal remediation (or bed bug heat treatment) is the only proven method to eliminate bed bugs and their eggs in a single treatment. Treatment consists of slowly heating your home to 135 degrees, destroying bed bugs, mold, mildew, dust mites, and even cold and flu germs in the process. Your electronics, pictures, dishes, and clothes won’t melt or be damaged in any way. There are no harsh products, you don’t have to live out of trash bags, and you never need to throw away ANY of your furniture. 

Natural Biopesticide

Not everyone can have thermal remediation performed on their property. For this reason, ATC Pest Control offers another option: Beauveria bassiana fungal spores. We strategically spray our proprietary and patented formulation in narrow bands where bed bugs travel. Fungal spores germinate within 20 hours of contact and then penetrate the cuticle of the bed bug, allowing spores to colonize inside. Bed bugs at all life stages are eliminated within four to ten days. Best of all, only one application is required. 

ATC has performed thousands of bed bug treatments with 100% successful results. We are so confident in our team’s ability that we back up all treatments with a secondary K9 inspection. If our bed bug detection dog finds anything in your home, we will return to treat again at no additional charge.

Plus, all bed bug removals are followed by a full year of bed bug insurance. Our insurance also comes with a 50% deductible, which can be renewed each year for a set fee.

Thermification Only By ATC Pest Control

Thermification is the most effective way to eradicate bed bugs and their eggs by heating up the location to lethal temperatures while drastically reducing the humidity. This treatment is very desirable as a “green” or non-chemical alternative. Heating units, special dehumidifier and multiple fans are brought into your home to raise the temperature to between 120 and 140 degrees and lower the humidity below 20%. The maximum heat is then maintained for several hours with computerized temperature monitors to ensure evenly disbursed lethal temperatures throughout the area. All people, pets, candles, alcohol, aerosols, medications, fireworks, some plastics, firearms and ammunition must be removed from premises. Electronics may remain. ATC is the only company that is authorized to perform this advanced treatment which differs drastically from just thermal remediation treatments alone.

Our Bed Bug Control Process

Know more about how our process works.

Inspection

We send our K9 inspection dog to locate bed bugs inside your home. If no pests are found, we pack up and leave – but if any bugs are located, we get right to work. Our K9 is 99.99% effective at locating active infestations, which is far more accurate than the average human inspector, and is fully equipped to evaluate your property within an hour or less.

Treatment

We offer thermal remediation and biopesticide treatments to remove bed bugs from your property. Only a single treatment is required for both approaches, although thermal remediation is highly recommended. You don’t need to worry about losing furniture or household goods, and you don’t need to worry about the toxicity problems posed by traditional products with either approach.

Warranty

ATC Pest Control sends our K9 to inspect your property one final time. If you don’t have bed bugs, we provide you with a certificate stating you are bed bug-free. In the event bed bugs are discovered and confirmed, our inspector will send a report to the office to schedule another bed bug treatment free of charge. You will then be given a one-year warranty with bed bug insurance – and the peace of mind that comes with a good night’s sleep.

Benefits Of Our Bed Bug Control Services

Inspections

One of the advantages of using temperature to control insect activity is the ability to inspect inside the areas being treated. This allows applicators to pinpoint exactly where areas of insect activity are prevalent and in turn use this information to further target heat and fans. A thermal imager is used to ensure all areas and items are heated to the proper temperature.

K9 Inspections

K9’s are trained to smell only live viable eggs and live bed bugs.  We have partnered with only the best K9’s to provide this service to you if you are not sure if you have bed bugs or after treatment to ensure all of the bed bugs and eggs are gone. Ask us for more details on setting up these inspections. We highly recommend it. People are at best 30% accurate at detecting bed bugs whereas specially trained K9’s are 99% accurate and much faster.

Thermification

ATC has developed the Thermification process to maximize the thermal death rate of bed bugs while at the same time removing the moisture from the air that helps keep them alive during heat treatments. This process far exceeds any standard for any heat treatment. By removing the moisture from the air during the heat treatment, the bed bugs thermal death point is lowered by 30%. What this means is that all bed bugs and their eggs will die at lower temperatures and because the moisture is removed from the air, it is 100% effective. One treatment in one day and it comes with a one year of insurance with deductible.  Stop living in fear and take your home back today and sleep tight tonight.

Other Options

You can request a K9 inspection at anytime (residential only).  After the thermal treatment is performed and the K9 clears you, you are responsible to pay for any additional k9 inspections.

Bed Bug Insurance

Like the thermal pro 110, ATC is the only company that offers bed bug insurance.  This is great if you are high risk like public services, hospital worker, social worker, had them before, know someone who has them etc. Just answer a few basic questions, have a k9 inspection. Now you are eligible for a full year of coverage.  What does it cover?  If for any reason you get bed bugs you automatically save 50% for any treatments to include a focused heat treatment or full thermal treatment. You can renew each year. 

Thermal Pro 110

(Formally called the Hex Pro Mini)
This is a handheld device that ATC has developed for consumers to use to treat and control bed bugs.  It simply plugs into any standard outlet and produces thermal remediation which kills bed bugs and their eggs in 5-7 seconds.  You need to move this device around the areas of concern and keep it 10-12? away from the area being treated.  This is very easy to do and we have videos and technical support ready to help if needed.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bed Bug Control

Biopesticides are far safer for humans than conventional bed bug products. They only affect target pests and closely related organisms, unlike broad-spectrum treatments that affect birds, insects, and mammals. Additionally, biopesticides are effective in very small quantities and often decompose quickly, resulting in lower exposures and largely avoiding the toxicity problems caused by conventional products. When used as a component of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs, biopesticides can greatly decrease the use of conventional products. Quarterly inspections and applications are highly recommended and can prevent future infestations.

Call ATC Pest Control today to schedule your piece of mind.

Do you see blood spots on your bed sheets and pillows? Do you see bugs in your bed or furniture? Do you have bite marks on your body with no explanation? If you said yes to any of these questions, you might have a bed bug infestation.

But keep in mind a professional inspection is needed to confirm these results completely. After all, having a person inspect for bed bug activity is rarely accurate. Humans are only 30% accurate in finding a bed bug infestation, and only 30% of people have an allergic reaction to bed bug saliva. In other words, you could have a bed bug inspection for months without seeing any signs or symptoms.

The only way to be sure if you have bed bugs in the building is to have a properly trained K9 and handler inspect the area.

Yes. ATC Pest Control has one of the world’s most accurate bed bug detection dogs. Our K-9 was trained for five years by American K9 and can find viable eggs, nymphs, and adults with 99.9% accuracy. After ATC Pest Control performs your bed bug treatment of choice, our K9 returns to reconfirm that all bed bugs are eliminated. Lewy is trained daily, even outside his daily inspections, and re-certified monthly at American K9’s world-class facility.

Frequently Asked Questions About Thermification

Heat is effective to control bed bug infestations and stored product pests. All insects have sub-optimum, optimum and lethal temperature thresholds for growth, survival, multiplication, and mortality. Insects have lethal temperature limits, generally greater than 120°F at which all stages of the life cycle are killed. Targeted temperatures are in the range of lethal temperatures required to completely eradicate the target insect populations. Adding the advanced dehumidifiers allows the thermal death rates to fall by 30%.  This process will allow the death of bed bugs and eggs much faster and deeper into the walls and other hiding places then thermal alone.

Heat kills by dehydration or drying out the insects. At low relative humidity, less moisture is available to insects and they desiccate at higher rate due to ‘dry heat’. The lower the humidity of the heated space the quicker the space becomes lethal to the targeted insect. Let Advanced Termite Control (ATC) use thermification in Maryland and thermification in Pennsylvania to rid bed bugs from your home!

Treatment time is an important factor for effectiveness of treating insect infestations with heat. Treatment time in turn is dictated by various factors such as clutter, structure, layout of the space, severity of infestation, and airflow management. Adults are generally most susceptible with eggs being most tolerant. Therefore, treatment time should ensure heat penetration to reach all probable places where insects can take refuge. Generally, holding lethal temperatures for a longer time will be more effective compared to shorter treatment times and is a function of the factors mentioned above. Generally, our heat treatments will require 6-10 hours per 1200 square feet.

For heat treatment to be effective, it is imperative that all parts of the area being treated reach lethal temperature levels. Bed Bug control is very important and clutter is an enemy of heat.The targeted area for treatment must be clean and free from debris. Cold spots or missing some areas may result in populations rebounding after heat treatment. That is why we use thermal imaging to ensure ALL areas are properly heated. Places that are difficult to heat may include concrete floors, outside walls, corners and areas isolated from the heat and air. We will prepare a heating plan considering the layout of the area and its contents so that equipment (heaters, fans etc.) and temperature sensors can be placed optimally to ensure that critical temperatures are achieved. We will target a temperature of between 130-140 degrees.

The range of lethal temperatures (minimum and maximum temperatures) should be carefully controlled so that heated space or its contents are not damaged. A list of items to be removed prior to heat start-up significantly reduces risk of damage to contents. Achieving the temperatures lethal to insects requires effective air flow management for uniform distribution. Lethal temperatures in heat-treated space is vital to effectively eradicate pest populations. It is essential to monitor temperatures by strategic placement of sensors to identify cold and hot spot/pockets so that corrective action can be initiated. This corrective action may be heater relocation, moving or adding fans, or rearranging the clutter within the space for good air flow to achieve lethal temperatures. Cold Spots can harbor insects whereas hot spots may be risky for structure or its contents. This advanced treatment causes no damage to your home or belongings.  The humidity level will return to normal once the treatment stops.

Our Temperature Sensors are good indicators of areas that need air movement to achieve lethal temperatures. There might also be some dead air pockets in and around the clutter where air does not flow properly. In such cases, the contents may have to be moved around or accessories like racks/hangers etc. might come handy so that hot lethal air circulates around difficult-to-reach areas.

Highest temperatures recorded by temperature sensors will not exceed 140°F. At this temperature, it is basically airflow management to ensure an overall lethal temperature profile throughout the heated space. Temperatures exceeding 160°F may damage items within the heated space. As temperatures reach around 140°F, the digital modulation control on the heater is used to lower/maintain temperature range and prevent overheating and damage.
