Don't Let Bed Bugs
Keep You Up At Night
You might think bed bugs are only a problem for hotels, apartment buildings, and other commercial facilities but here at Prosite Pest Control, we also receive many calls from homeowners worried about bed bugs. These biting insects are a real problem for homes and commercial environments in Yakima and Kittitas counties, and infest properties indiscriminately. If you think you’ve found bed bugs or signs of an infestation, take action right away. At Prosite Pest Control, we offer comprehensive bed bug control solutions that start with a site consultation!
Our Bed Bug Elimination Process
When it comes to bed bugs, we have one goal: to gain control of the pest problem. When you contact Prosite Pest Control for bed bug control, you can count on our team to get rid of bed bugs following a proven bed bug elimination process.
The first step towards resolving a bed bug problem is to conduct a thorough inspection of the room or area that has the suspected infestation. Our pest control technicians will look for signs of bed bug activity including live bugs and will check bedframes, mattresses and box springs, bedside tables, and other furniture. Wall hangings, curtains, and other items in the room will also be inspected. If bed bugs are confirmed, a treatment plan will be recommended and thoroughly explained so you know what to expect.
To protect your personal belongings some items must be removed prior to treatment. They include pets, house plants, food that melts, cell phones, and make-up. For a complete list of items that must be removed and for more instructions on how to prepare for a bed bug treatment, please view our bed bug preparation checklist.
Bed Bug Treatment
We’ll start the service by vacuuming up any live bed bugs and verify that the preparation checklist provided prior to the service has been completed. From there Prosite Pest Control will perform either a bed bug heat treatment or conventional treatment that includes the application of product. Before we leave, we’ll set up bed bug monitors that will be checked for activity during our follow up visits.
To ensure the bed bug problem has been resolved, Prosite will monitor the infested area for three weeks. Each week following the treatment, we’ll return to inspect for bed bugs or signs of these biting pests. While most bed bug infestations are resolved in one visit, you can rest assured our team will not quit until your bed bug problem is history!
How We Get Rid Of Bed Bugs
At Prosite Pest Control, we exterminate bed bugs using both heat and conventional methods. How we determine which bed bug control method is best for your home or business will be determined at the time of our consultation.
Bed Bug Heat Treatments
Did you know bed bugs, like other insects, have a lethal temperature threshold? Adult bed bugs, eggs, and nymphs cannot sustain life once they are subjected to temperatures greater than 122 degrees Fahrenheit. At Prosite, we take advantage of that weakness and use heaters to raise an infested room’s air temperature above their known threshold (typically 122-140°F). Then we utilize fans to circulate the hot air around the space in order to ensure that the heat penetrates all probable places where bed bugs hide. The heat we produce during the course of the treatment kills bed bugs by dehydration or, in other words, we dry these biting insects out.
Conventional Bed Bug Treatments
This method of bed bug eradication consists of the targeted application of EPA-registered product to baseboards, floorboards, and other areas where bed bugs are prone to hide while not biting their victims. All conventional bed bug treatments are administered by highly trained and licensed pest control professionals who understand bed bugs, who know where to find them, and how much product is necessary to eliminate all life stages of these pests.

Bed Bug Frequently Asked Questions
Where do bed bugs come from?
Unfortunately, you can pick up bed bugs anywhere. Hotels, movie theaters, airports, plans and cabs are common places to encounter these bugs. Homeowners also risk bringing them home on used clothing and secondhand furniture or welcome guests that have arrived with stowaways on their luggage or even themselves.
Does Prosite offer organic bed bug treatments?
Yes, we do! To learn more about our organic bed bug control methods, please give us a call.
Which is more effective – bed bug heat treatment or chemical?
Both methods are highly effective in eliminating bed bugs from residential and commercial properties. The solution we recommend is based on the size of the infested area, the severity of the infestation, and other factors. Once we’ve inspected the problem area, we’ll have a better idea of which treatment would be better suited.
How does a bed bug heat treatment work?
Heat treatment is very effective in killing adult bed bugs, eggs, and nymphs because the heated air is able to eliminate bed bugs found on the surface AND penetrate fabrics and areas not easily accessed by technicians such as cracks and crevices in flooring and furniture.
Professional grade thermal remediation equipment is set up in the infested area after the preparation work has been completed. Under the careful eye of one of our trained technicians, the space is then heated up to a temperature that is proven to eliminate bed bugs and sustained for several hours. During the course of treatment, the intense heat will dehydrate the bugs causing them to die. Once complete, our team will break down our equipment and let you know that the property is ready to be re-occupied.
What do I need to do prior to a canine inspection?
