But how do I know that I have bed bugs? You can’t see them?
Despite the myth that they are virtually invisible, it is possible to detect bed bugs with the naked eye. Usually though, it’s more common to notice you have an infestation by noticing their bites on you or your family’s skin or by noticing their waste along mattress seams, box springs, headboards, and even some uncommon places like curtains, lamps, laptops kept in the bedroom, etc. They LOVE dark and warm places, so think of where you would want to curl up in the winter and you might find residue. When you do, CALL US. We’ll give you a free estimate and start our process of inspection and treatment.
How do you kill bed bugs naturally?
Bed bugs have a way of burying into spots you probably don’t want to mess up with chemicals or sprays. That’s why we use heat treatment. Heat treatment is the safest way for a bed bug exterminator in Holland MI to solve an infestation and guarantee that it is 100% taken care of.
Our process begins with our expertly trained bed bug sniffing K9 service dogs. Canines are known for their superior sense of smell, and our dogs can sniff out an infestation with 94% accuracy.
Once we determine you have an infestation, we bring in our heat treatment system and heat your home for several hours to ensure the heat reaches every corner, including inside that tucked away mattress seam or box spring.

More Cost-Effective Than Chemicals
Although pesticides are often used to treat bed bug infestations, the chemicals are proving to do more harm than good. With developing immunity to traditional toxins, bed bugs are becoming more resistant to the chemicals, requiring additional visits. And because the chemicals target the nervous systems of adult bugs, the eggs are left unaffected by the treatment. Which means an exterminator will need to make multiple visits before the infestation is entirely treated. And because pesticides have only been around for a few decades, the adverse affects they have on families and pets is still relatively unknown. But organizations like the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization are expressing increased concern for the affects these chemicals can have on the elderly, pregnant women, children and those with weakened immune systems. At Allphase, we only employ safe, eco-friendly heat treatments that are more effective and efficient at killing entire infestations in a single visit.
