We know how scary waking up to red welts, rashes, and hives due to bed bug bites can be. So if you’ve spent the last few nights tossing and turning, we can help! You see, bed bugs are troublesome pests. They’re sneaky, hard to find, and can cause potential health problems. Armed with 5 years of experience and state-of-the-art products/tools, Preferred Pest and Lawn is well-equipped to help you get rid of bed bugs for good!
To an untrained eye, spotting a bed bug infestation can prove to be difficult. And, if you discover bed bugs in your home, do-it-yourself remedies and over-the-counter solutions are often ineffective. The highly-trained team at Preferred Pest and Lawn will assess your situation, implement a solution, and monitor activity to ensure our bed bug treatment works.
The naked eye cannot see the common bed bug. So we’ll perform a thorough inspection checking your mattress, box spring, bed frame, head/footboards, walls, and carpet in the affected room. We’ll also check adjoining rooms just to be sure. This step helps us determine the severity of the bed bug infestation and how many rooms are affected.
We’ll share a preparation checklist with you before we perform your bed bug treatment. It includes, but is not limited to, the following items: reduce clutter, launder infested garments and lines, dismantle bed frames, remove dresser drawers, and clean the area. You must complete the items on this list before we treat your home. This step will drastically increase the effectiveness of your bed bug treatment.
We’ll carefully apply a combination of liquid, aerosol, and dust in the affected room(s). Not only will we treat your mattress, but we’ll also target your baseboards and furniture (nightstands, chests, dressers, couches, and chairs). This treatment not only drives bed bugs out from their hiding place, but it also kills them on contact.
We’re passionate about helping people just like you get rid of unwanted pest problems. As such, we are proud to be the only pest control company in Columbia, MO promising excellence in value, service, and trust.
The answer to this question depends on your mattress’s condition and the size of the bed bug infestation. If there are holes or tears in the mattress, bed bugs and their eggs may be nested inside. So we usually recommend discarding the mattress in this case. But if your mattress is in good shape and the infestation isn’t severe, we carry mattress safe encasements and active guard liners. Both of these products are effective as preventative and proactive bed bug treatments.
Let’s set the record straight… bed bugs do NOT transmit diseases through their bites. They do, however, suck blood from their host with piercing mouthparts, but the bite itself is painless. Bed bugs also do not live under the skin. Their bites often appear as red, itchy bumps or welts on the skin, usually on the arms or shoulders. So if you’re noticing bites like this on your skin, please call us at 573-823-9269 today!
After we treat your home for bed bugs, we recommend that you inspect any used furniture you purchase before bringing it into your home. This is especially true for bed frames, mattresses, and couches. We also recommend that you check for bed bugs in your hotel room while traveling. You may want to inspect or vacuum your luggage and wash any clothing you used on this trip once you get home.
Pricing for bed bug treatments starts at $123 per room. Your exact price will depend on the size of the infestation and how many rooms are affected. So we recommend you call 573-823-9269 to schedule your bed bug inspection today! We’ll check your mattress, box spring, bed frame, head & footboards, furniture, walls, and carpet for these blood-sucking pests.
This depends on the severity of your bed bug infestation. On average, our bed bug treatments take 30 minutes to 2 hours per room to complete. Furthermore, it’s unlikely that all the bed bugs will be killed in the initial treatment, so we recommend two follow-up visits spaced ten days apart. To get an accurate estimate, please call 573-823-9269. We’ll gladly answer this question and any other bed bug questions you have.
We guarantee our bed bug treatment for a minimum of 30 days. Of course, most of our customers enjoy the results of our bed bug treatment for much longer than that. We do a great job of assessing your unique situation, implementing a proper solution, and monitoring activity after the job is done! To schedule your service, please call 573-823-9269.
Eric was great! He explained where the mice were coming in and was very thorough to make sure that he covered each place with poison and/or traps. He also made sure to place them where my dog wouldn’t get into them. Super nice and reasonably priced service!!!!– Julia S. in Columbia, MO Great service. Have not had any problems since I started using Preferred Pest Management. Always flexible with my schedule and on time.– Caleb B. in Columbia, MO I called Preferred Pest Management and Eric was able to come out the same day to help with our wasp problem. He listened to our concerns and addressed the problem areas we were having. We were using Steve’s but their service has really gone downhill. I called around to several places before choosing Preferred Pest Management. Their prices are the best around! And haven’t seen a wasp since he sprayed!
