Bed Bug Inspections

This is generally the first step.

Inspection is the first step to establish if you have bed bugs or not. We need to know where they are located as well as the severity of the infestation. Once we know those things, then we can design a plan of action.

Our specially trained bed bug dogs often help us with inspections. We consider our dogs as an additional tool to help us locate bed bugs and we always perform visual inspections as well.

Our bed bug inspections typically take 60 minutes and can be scheduled to fit your needs.

Bed Bug Heat Treatment

Kill all bed bugs and their eggs in a single treatment.

Our bed bug heat treatment procedure begins by heating the entire infested space to 135 degrees Fahrenheit using large heaters. Bed bugs and their eggs die at 122 degrees in under 60 seconds. We use fans to ensure that hot air is moving around the entire area. Thorn professionals enter the space about every hour to check temperatures using thermal imaging cameras. They will also rotate furniture and belongings to make sure everything gets thoroughly heated. As another tool, we also apply residual pesticides in bed bug harborage areas as well as wall voids.

Our heat treatments come with a 6 month warranty for commercial properties and a 1 year warranty for single family homes.

Preventive Treatments

We are strong believers in preventive bed bug treatments for hotels, apartments, and other locations that are at high risk for bed bugs.

For preventative treatments we often apply a light insecticidal dust to areas likely to contain bed bugs. This dust kills all bed bugs that it comes in contact with and stays in place for long amounts of time – keeping you safe from bed bug infestations! These treatments are effective and long lasting.

Preventive bed bug treatments can stop bed bug infestations at your property.

Bed Bug Dogs

We have bed bug dogs that help sniff out difficult-to-find bed bugs.

We have been working with specially trained bed bug dogs for the past ten years. They are amazing animals that allow us to locate difficult-to-find bed bugs. They sniff out bed bugs just like a bomb dog or a drug dog.

Meet our dogs.

Bed Bug Trainings

We are not a one size fits all company when it comes to bed bugs. We protect your home  through many different methods. In some situations, chemical bed bug treatments will be your best option.

A chemical treatment’s main objective is to get direct contact of our products to every bed bug and bed bug egg. This is a very thorough process. Chemical treatments generally require about 4 treatments spaced out by 10 days each. We use desiccant dusts and modern dual active pesticides.


Training your team on bed bug behavior and how to respond to a bed bug infestation is critically important.

We provide important and engaging bed bug trainings to help you be proactive against bed bugs. Prepare your team by educating them on bed bugs and how to respond to issues.
