Hey there, readers! It’s Scot from Identify Pest Control in Newton, NH. Today, I want to share a memorable extermination story that took place in Manchester, and trust me, this one is unforgettable.
It was a sunny day in late summer when I received a frantic call from a homeowner in Manchester. They’d been plagued by itchy bites and had spotted tiny bugs in their bedroom. I’ve dealt with my fair share of bed bug infestations throughout Southern NH – serving towns like Nashua, Derry, Londonderry, Hudson, Merrimack, and more – but nothing could’ve prepared me for what I was about to witness.
The Initial Inspection
Walking into the home, it didn’t take long to spot the first signs of a bed bug infestation. A quick glance at the bed revealed clusters of the pesky creatures skittering about. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. Pulling back a picture frame from the wall, I was met with a horde of bed bugs trying to make a sneaky getaway. My heart sank as the homeowner showed me their couches – these too had been overtaken.
You might think that was all, but here’s the kicker: bed bugs like to hide in the walls too and after looking at the outlet covers around the house, there were definitely signs on bed bugs there too. This was, without a doubt, one of the most severe bed bug infestations I’d ever come across in my years as an exterminator.
The Battle Plan
Understanding the gravity of the situation, I devised a comprehensive treatment plan. Given the widespread infestation, this job would demand multiple visits.
- First Visit: The initial treatment involved a thorough application throughout the home, paying close attention to high-risk areas like beds, furniture, and wall voids. All bed linens and curtains were bagged for laundering at high temperatures, which is lethal to bed bugs.
- Second Visit (Two weeks later): Bed bugs have a life cycle, and the eggs they leave behind can be a persistent issue. So two weeks after the first treatment, I returned to the house. It was heartening to see a drastic reduction in the bugs, but there were still some stragglers, particularly in those hard-to-reach nooks and crannies.
- Final Visit (Four weeks from the start): On this visit, I applied a final layer of treatment, ensuring that any remaining eggs or bugs were exterminated.
Three visits and countless hours later, the Manchester home was finally free from the bed bug menace. The relief on the homeowner’s face was palpable. They could finally sleep soundly without the fear of waking up to itchy bites.
