BED BUG TREATMENT
Our Bed Bug Treatment Service
We know how scary waking up to red welts, rashes, and hives due to bed bug bites can be. So if you’ve spent the last few nights tossing and turning, we can help! You see, bed bugs are troublesome pests. They’re sneaky, hard to find, and can cause potential health problems. Armed with 30 years of experience and state-of-the-art products/tools, A-Extreme Services Green Pest Management is well-equipped to help you get rid of bed bugs for good!
We proudly use Aprehend a bio alternitive to chemicals.
Aprehend is a revolutionary fungal biopesticide used for the elimination and prevention of bed bugs. The highly-trained team at A-Extreme Services Green Pest Management will apply strategic barriers to key areas where bed bugs are known to hide. When a bed bug comes in contact with a treated surface, the fungal spores stick to its feet and body and are taken back to its harborage. The spores quickly transfer bed bugs by direct contact, targeting bed bugs that do not leave the harborage. After 24 hours, the spores will germinate like seeds killing the bed bugs within 3-7 days.
1. BED BUG INSPECTION
The naked eye cannot see the common bed bug. So we’ll perform a thorough inspection checking your mattress, box spring, bed frame, head/footboards, walls, and carpet in the affected room. We’ll also check adjoining rooms just to be sure. This step helps us determine the severity of the bed bug infestation and how many rooms are affected.
2. Minimal homeowner Preparation
a) De-clutter. This will assist in removing potential bed bug harborages. Check items for signs of infestation.
b) Move all furniture items away from the walls to allow access to the baseboards around the entire room.
c) Cover fish tanks, terrariums, and small animal cages with a clean towel or sheet.
d) Finally, remove all sheets, covers, dust ruffles, comforters, pillows, and any other bedding covers from your mattress and box spring in all bedrooms that are to be treated. Wash all bed linens in the hottest water possible and then run through a hot dryer cycle for a minimum of 40 minutes. Replacing the original bedding without treatment at high heat is likely to reintroduce bed bugs to the treated room, resulting in control failure.
e) Do not re-enter treated areas for 4 hours after service.
f) Do not spray any pesticides or cleaning products in treated areas after the Aprehend treatment. This will kill the Aprehend and result in control failure.
g) Allow the treatment time to work, do not clean or remove the spray barriers. In most cases, barriers will be applied in inconspicuous areas. If the infestation was suspected behind baseboards or electrical outlets, a 2″ spray barrier might have been applied on the wall above or around these installations. Under certain lighting conditions, these barriers may be visible. Leave these in place until you are sure that the infestation has been eradicated. The barrier will remain active for up to 3 months if left undisturbed but is easily removed with kitchen or bathroom cleaner when required.
h) Live bed bugs may be visible for 2-3 weeks after the treatment. Affected bugs may be seen wandering in unusual places. This is a sign that the treatment is working. Remember that bed bugs may not leave their harborages a few days after treatment, and nymphs hatching from eggs will not be affected until they cross a spray barrier. However, all bed bugs will die within 3-7 days after coming into contact with Aprehend. Contact A-Extreme Services if you still see live bed bugs 30 days after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
The answer to this question depends on your mattress’s condition and the bed bug infestation size. If there are holes or tears in the mattress, bed bugs and their eggs may be nested inside. So we usually recommend discarding the mattress in this case. But if your mattress is in good shape and the infestation isn’t severe, you can use safe mattress encasements and active guard liners. Both of these products are effective as preventative and proactive bed bug treatments.
After we treat your home for bed bugs, we recommend that you inspect any used furniture you purchase before bringing it into your home. This is especially true for bed frames, mattresses, and couches. We also recommend that you check for bed bugs in your hotel room while traveling. It’s a good idea to keep luggage in the bathtub when not in use.
Pricing for bed bug treatments starts at $400 for the first room. Your exact price will depend on the size of the infestation and how many rooms are affected. So we recommend you call 505-922-0066 to schedule your bed bug inspection today! We’ll check your mattress, box spring, bed frame, head & footboards, furniture, walls, and carpet for these blood-sucking pests.
No, do not enter the treated areas for 4 hours after service. On average, our bed bug treatments take 30 minutes to 2 hours per room to complete. Furthermore, it’s unlikely that all the bed bugs will be killed in the initial treatment. It will take 3-7 days to start working. To get an accurate estimate, please call 505-922-0066. We’ll gladly answer this question and any other bed bug questions you have.

★★★★★“In my search for pest control, we contacted several companies. A-extreme was so professional, understanding, passionate to help get rid of our unwanted ants. We just had our second service and I can’t be more pleased. For our first visit, we were quickly fit into the schedule. They serviced our home in the morning and within 24 hours our back porch was full of dead ants. We haven’t seen ants since. They said to call if we saw any more bugs, but we didn’t need any more services until our next scheduled appointment. We couldn’t be more pleased. I have and will continue to recommend them to everyone! We ❤️A-Extreme!!!”

I am so grateful to this excellent company for helping us time and time again with ants, roaches, and spiders. I guess it's an Albuquerque thing but these little pests come around every summer, and we always call A-Extreme.
