At GEPCS treatment for bed bug removal involves non-chemical methods such as steaming, vacuuming, and chemical treatment with non-repellent insecticides, as we want the bedbugs to rest upon treated harborage and die, rather than being repelled by pyrethroid residues and scatter to other areas.

All potential infestation areas are treated twice a year and secondary initiation areas are treated annually. Annual service involves two visits from our trained technician. If pest returns between the treatments during the contract period, your GEPCS man will return with no extra charge.
