What is the best way to get rid of bed bugs?
Bed bug infestations often occur within a couple meters of the pests’ food source. Since they feed on human blood, this means they are often found in mattresses, box springs, carpets, headboards and baseboards. These are sensitive places where traditional chemical treatments are out of the question. For this reason – as well as its proven effectiveness – experts agree that heat as the best solution.
We use heat to eradicate bed bugs in a single environmentally-friendly treatment. Our natural extermination process uses convection to force heat into mattresses, furniture, walls and difficult spots to kill bed bugs in all their stages (eggs, nymphs and adults) without the use of chemicals.

If you have tried to get rid of bedbugs without success, you have come to the right place! Thermal remediation is highly successful even in those difficult cases where chemical pest control products or home remedies have failed. Don’t hesitate to contact us. We will take the time to answer your questions, give you an estimate of costs and make sure you understand the process before proceeding.
Visual inspection and detection
Performing proper initial inspection is critical for early detection of a bed bug infestation. It is important to know both where to look and what you are looking for. Catching a problem before it has spread will reduce treatment costs and complexity. Before calling Pure Environmental, you should do a careful visual inspection yourself. You’ll find all the details and helpful photos on our visual inspection page.
In some cases, a visual inspection does not give definite results – especially in early infestation stages.
This is where canine inspection can be of great help. Specially-trained dogs are used to accurately detect the presence of bed bugs even when there is no visual evidence. Find out more about canine pest inspection and why our dogs make a perfect fit for our team.
