Bedbug Visual Inspections
The first step in eliminating a Bedbug problem is identifying whether you actually have one. At your home, business or establishment, a Standard Pest technician will extensively search the premises for any signs of Bedbug traces. This means looking for live, visible bugs as well as the areas where eggs and hiding Bedbugs may be dwelling.
Adult bugs can hide in spaces as thin as a sheet of paper and move upon sudden disturbances. So our technicians are trained to be not only discreet but equipped with the best equipment necessary for identification and reaching those hard to find spots. We use LED flashlights for maximum exposure and go much further depending on the needs of the client. For example, our technician may have a screwdriver on hand to remove light switches or panels where Bedbugs could be lurking underneath. We go above and beyond to find the problem and eradicate it.
Bedbug K-9 Dog Inspections
For projects where we have solid proof of an infestation but are having a very difficult time finding hiding positions, we use our trusty Bedbug K-9 dog. Dogs have been used for years in a very effective manner to sniff out items such as drugs, people, cadavers, mold and bombs, so it’s only natural that they could be trained to pick up the scent of Bedbugs.
Sometimes we walk into a client’s home or building finding traces of Bedbugs but not the bugs themselves. These pests are very adept at hiding and are far more active during twilight hours. Our K-9 is trained specifically to sniff out the root of any infestation and find out where those bugs are lurking. It’s only after we receive an alert from our dog, that our technician will begin an extensive visual search. This is done in order to root out any possible “false-positives.” We wouldn’t want to provide you with Bedbug treatment if there isn’t actually an infestation.

Multi-Family Building Bedbug Treatment & Inspections in NYC, Westchester, Long Island & Northern, NJ
You’re in charge of a building property or many. You already have so many worries to think about like plumbing, heating, cooling, land management, and building cleaning: Why add a nightmare like Bedbugs to the list? We specialize in the removal of Bedbugs throughout Multi-Family apartment buildings. The scariest thing about this scenario is how quickly they can spread from unit to unit unleashing an array of unhappy tenants and an enormous headache for the property management company.
As the problem snowballs, it can be a very expensive proposition to treat. They are hard to detect in small numbers, migrate quickly from unit to unit, and actively resist many chemicals. They can spread quickly via clothing, luggage, bags, furniture, bedding, family, friends or co-workers. When it comes to apartments, they crawl onto pipes, telephone, cable or electrical wires.
When it comes to your treatment options for Bedbugs, a strong, coordinated effort between Standard Pest Management and the property manager is a prerequisite. We also suggest a level of communication made between property management and residents. If one apartment is infested, it’s likely that the Bedbugs have spread to adjoining units.
Our treatment is labor intensive, may take several hours between each apartment, and will most likely require several visits to permanently put a stop to a Bedbug infestation.
Residential Bedbug Services
Bedbugs can end up in your home from a variety of places. Perhaps you took a trip and stayed in a hotel with them. Visiting relatives have also been known to carry these creepy crawlers with their luggage. Your kids can bring them home from school and parents can do the same from work.
Our Bedbug Treatment Methods
The Types of Treatment We Use to Eliminate Bedbugs have always included Steam Vapor Treatments, BioPesticide Treatments and Chemical Treatments. Depending on the situation or nature of the infestation, our treatment methods may differ to achieve the most optimal results for you.
One thing Bedbugs can’t survive is extreme heat. Once our technicians have performed a thorough evaluation of your home or establishment, we’ll use an industrial steamer to kill Adult bugs and their eggs. Steam is a great option because it can penetrate hard to reach areas. It’s also an environmentally friendly option because its treatment without the use of chemicals. In conjunction with the use of chemicals it makes for a time tested, effective solution toward eliminating any Bedbug infestation.
Standard Pest Management also utilizes insecticides and pesticides to dispatch Bedbugs from your home or business. Their active ingredients kill or repel Bedbugs. Because these pests have become more and more resistant to these chemicals in the last decade, their usage alone has not been as effective.
Therefore, we tend to only utilize them in conjunction with steam vapor treatments. Chemicals are also not environmentally friendly when compared with steam vapor.
BioPesticide Spray Treatment
These days, time and technology are truly on our side. With our method of Bedbug extermination, we’re able to manage out entire populations within 24 hours. Using a new fungal spray which acts as a barrier as well as a coating for Bedbugs, we’re able to protect and target the entire source of an infestation.
