Top 10 Bed Bug Infested Cities

August 16, 2019

With bedbugs a growing problem world-wide, no city is immune, but some are already worse off than others. According to Terminix Pest Control and based on the number of services rendered by the company in each city over the last year (between April 2018 and 2019), these are the most highly-infested bedbug cities.

  1. Philadelphia, PA
  2. New York, NY
  3. Dallas-Fort Worth, TX
  4. Indianapolis, IN
  5. Cincinnati, OH
  6. Los Angeles, CA
  7. Cleveland, OH
  8. Washington, D.C.
  9. Chicago, IL
  10. Boston, MA

For residents of these cities, the list is alarming and a good reminder that both a bedbug prevention and an eradication plan is necessary. Unluckily for us, Cincinnati is number 5. We cannot sit back and let bed bugs take over our homes and community.

Heat has proven to be the most efficient means of killing bed bugs, other insects and arachnids, and their eggs. Our customers love this technology because it is also a non-chemical method. Our techniques are completely safe to your home, furniture, and belongings when properly applied. In almost all cases you will not need to throw any of your furniture, carpeting, or clothing away after treating an infestation with heat.

When you need emergency bed bug service, TRS Extermination utilizes discreet, portable electric and propane heaters, and fans specifically designed for the efficient killing of all insect pests, especially bed bugs and their eggs. Heat is so much more than just a superb solution for bed bugs. Every living organism has a thermal death point. When treating for bed bugs, we denature allergens and may also kill bacteria, mildew, and viruses. We will kill all insect pests in the treatment area and disinfect and deodorize your home at the same time. Call us at 513-604-6332 to find out how TRS Extermination will keep you bed-bug free!

The real reason why we exterminate bed bugs

September 26, 2019

Some days the extermination business can be tough. Some folks call us and we are the bearer of bad news as we show them how extensive their infestations have become. We treat the homes and businesses of others and never hear back after our final inspection a couple of weeks later (by the way, that’s when your bed bug warranty begins... when we certify we killed them all!)... and we know we killed all their bed bugs. In that regard, not hearing from a client again is a good thing, and I hope to never hear from my clients again. However, if they do need us, we’re always ready to help with the same integrity and honesty we delivered on our previous visit. Read more
