Bed Bug Treatments

heat treat

We are experts in treating and eliminating bed bugs in your home or business. We use only exclusively proven methods to treat, control and eradicate any bed bug problem you have including our K9 Inspection and our exclusive Heat’N Treat System, a fact that is especially important since research has shown that this new wave of bed bugs is highly resistant to most conventional forms of treatment. As with termites, only a complete and thorough inspection can determine if you have a genuine bed bug problem and what it will take to treat and control it.

Seeing Red

As seen here, bed bug bites are characterized by red, welt-like bumps on the skin and can cause any number of related issues including allergic reactions, skin infections, mental distress and, even anaphylactic shock, though this is rare. An especially interesting and worrisome feature of bed bug bites is that you often do not see or feel the damage until long after it is done. That’s because bed bugs first inject you with an anesthetic before hungrily slurping your blood.

Other Tell Tale Signs 

Bed Bugs can be very hard to detect so knowledge about how they look and behave can be very important to detecting them as soon as possible. Because they are flat and about the size of an apple seed, bed bugs can invade your home from almost anywhere. Drawn to warm, dark places near human hosts, bed bugs are also not simply relegated to living on mattresses and can be found in furniture, clothing, carpets and many more places. Furthermore, they can live for almost a full year in a home with a nominal temperature and adequate food supply. Add this to the fact that they can fully infest a house within 3-4 months and it’s easy to see how bed bugs can get out of control. Other things to consider include: 
  • ​Bed Bugs can travel on bags, people and suitcases or transferred from used furniture. 
  • ​Bed signs can be dark spotting and staining on sheets, mattresses, pillows and clothing. The staining is from excrement and blood left by crushed bed bugs. 
  • ​A sweet musty smell is often associated with bed bug infestation. 
  • ​Most bed bugs come out for meals at night-time and feed exclusively on blood. Their bites on humans can feel and even look similar to a mosquito bite.​ ​

Get An Inspection: the Nose Knows
The best way to know for certain if you have bed bugs and to know exactly what you’re dealing with is to get an inspection.And the best inspection to have is our CERTIFIED K-9 inspection. We can “Pre Sniff” your home for $150; motels, hotels, commercial & municipal properties are priced after an initial walk through. The K-9 inspection is something we do as part of our Heat’N Treat program which we do again after the heat treatment to make sure all the bed bugs are gone.

Defense & Treatment 
Like they say in football, sometimes your best defense is a strong offense so make the moves that are necessary to keep bed bugs out of your house as much as possible. First, inspect it regularly especially after traveling or when guests leave your home. The same is true for furniture: inspect it regularly, especially any second-hand pieces you might bring into your home. Finally, even though bed bug infestations have NOTHING to do with cleanliness, it still helps to remove clutter from your home if for no other reason than it gives them fewer places to hide. 

As for treatment, your best option is to get professional treatment. Having said that, choose carefully because not all professional treatments are the same. Heat applications for example, are used by many pest control professionals, but generally only as a method of contact killing, which means they only kill the bed bugs you can see and not the entire infestation. Having said that, we know that heat treatment is the most effective way to eliminate bed bugs and their eggs, which is why we offer our exclusive Heat’n Treat System; it kills bed bugs at their source. To find out how, just give us a call.  
Of course ultimately choosing the best treatment method for your situation depends entirely on the scope of your situation, so contact us today to schedule an in home bed bug inspection. Serving Sussex and Kent Counties, Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Virginia, we are just a call away from handling any of your pest control needs.

Customer Expereinces

I needed a termite inspection for my VA Home Loan. Bennett Termite schedule the inspection quickly and showed up on time. The inspector was very polite and informative. Their fee was better than I expected. I would recommend Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions to anyone in need of the service.

Very happy with your service and price. Always done quickly and very flexible on changes of schedule.

Thank You!

Our first experience with Bennett Pest Control was approximately 4 years ago when we encountered our first “bed bug infestation” when a tenant moved out of a rental home. We had called a number of Pest Control companies who used a chemical treatment and would need to treat for 2-4 months. After calling Bennett Pest Control and meeting with Bruce, he explained the heat treatment, the cost, and the down time.

The heat treatment would kill everything in the home (ie; roaches, ants, spiders, bedbugs and their eggs) down time would be 6-8 hours, and cost was less than one month’s rent. Still, not sure as what to do, Bruce said “Let’s do this house, if you still are not convinced, or we have to come back for any reason, we will discount the cost.” We will also guarantee our work, and have a canine inspection upon completion.

Needless to say, the ONLY people I call when there is any signs or even a “maybe possible” sign of a bedbug when completing a move out inspection is Bennett Pest Control . They are fast, courteous, professional, and less expensive than having 2+ months of down time with no guarantee. We have never had to have Bennett Pest Control go back to re-treat. It is always 100% pest free after one treatment.

Thank you!

“I just wanted to let you know that I had the opportunity to speak with Keven today and he was fantastic. I was told that I had an issue at a rental property of mine in Fenwick. I needed you all to come out and treat it but I couldn’t be there. Kevin called me and explained everything and answered all of my questions in a way that made me feel like I was truly being taken care of. Keven is the reason I will remain a customer in the future.

Please thank him for earning you another customer.”

“I was very impressed with the professionalism of Robert and Dean yet also how kindly they treated me and my family. We were devastated to find that we had a problem. They assured us that we are not alone and would do everything they could to help us. Robert gave us all the information we needed to know with how to handle the situation. Under Dean’s care, Bennett acted swiftly and had our problem, and our stress level, under control in no time. We are so grateful to them for their service.”

“I want to take the time to let you know how I feel about your company and its performance. I provide Property Management for an extensive number of homes in both Delaware and Maryland. I have chosen Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions to service these rental properties as well as my personal homes because I have noticed the attention to details, the professional service and the response to my needs that the company provides. They respond quickly to any call and provide the monthly service at a very competitive rate. I can rely on Bennett to get the job done the first time whether performing routine maintenance or providing immediate service for problems.

I am a realtor and am in the unique position of seeing the types of service provided by a variety of pest control companies during the home inspections for the sale of properties. It is this knowledge that led me to switch all my managed properties and my personal homes to Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions.”

“I just wanted to write a quick note and tell you that I had a great customer service experience with Jared. I dealt with him on the telephone and I was very pleased with his degree of professionalism over the phone. He was warm, friendly and assured me if I needed anything, to just call back. He is definitely an asset to your business.”

“I’m sorry that it has taken me so long to acknowledge one of your employees. His name is Fred and he did a termite inspection for us back in Jan. of this year. Fred found a significant source of heat loss and security in our conditioned crawlspace. It turns out that our builder had not sealed the crawl space from the outside elements. Fred felt the draft and reported it to us. We have been very happy with your company for almost three years now and could not be happier. All of your employees are first rate and your service is top notch. Thank you for running such an efficient business!”

“I have been very satisfied with Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions’ overall attention to service and my needs. I had a kitchen full of ants and company arriving. I called Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions and they came to my aid as quickly as possible and saved my weekend.”

“I have been impressed with Dean and his team at Bennett Termite and Pest Solutions for my monthly home pest control services. Their professional service and knowledge is essential to protecting my home and property without risk to my children and pets. With their monthly service, the appearance of my lawn has improved and I am able to enjoy my yard without the annoyance of ants, flies, and mosquitoes.”

“We are so happy that we have Dean Bennett and his crew back on our home protection team. Dealing with a man who knows his stuff leaves us relaxed. It is both a rarity and a relief to deal with your company, confident that our best interests are your priority. Thank you for bringing your quality service to our home and to our community.”

“Right Property Management has done business with Dean Bennett for years and we find him to be extremely Customer Service Oriented. It is not unusual to call Dean with a problem and he says, “I’ll be there in a few minutes to check on it”. Can’t do any more than that for your customers.”

“Not only are Dean and his company quick to respond, they have even come out the same day we called to help us out. The company is easily reached, timely, responsive and friendly. We highly recommend Bennett Pest Solutions.”

I’ve been impressed with Bennett Termite Pest Control from the moment I called them hysterically. Their response time was the same day in addition to the next day coming out again to treat the interior of my house. I am very particular and cautious about people entering my home, but when the technician came to my home, he was professional, hardworking and reassuring my rodent problem would disappear. I not only chose Bennett because they are locals to the area and know how to treat problems, but they heard the urgency in my voice to help. I can rely on Bennett to get the job done right the first time.

I contacted Bennett recently for carpenter ants in my house. I spoke to Pam in the office who immediately dispatched Bruce to my home. Bruce did an inspection and confirmed the problem and spoke to Pam about expediting treatment. Will the technician was dispatched the next day and did a thorough spraying of my property inside, outside and crawl space. Will also answered all my questions and was very patient with me. The owner Dean visited me 5 days later to ease my mind about if further treatment might be needed as I was going to be out of town for 4 weeks.If you are looking for a company that values you as a customer, look no further, all Bennett team members go above and beyond for you !!!! Thank you to Pam, Bruce, Will and Dean for the urgency you showed in helping me solve my carpenter ants problem!!

Excellent customer service from Office staff to knowledgeable technician. All my questions and concerns were answered completely. Several neighbors in my neighborhood use Bennett and they highly recommend them as well.
We would highly recommend Bennett Termite and Pest Solutions. They went above and beyond to help us with termite treatment and moisture in our crawl space. While we were rehabbing the exterior of our home, we discovered multiple issues with the existing conditions. Dean Bennett completed an inspection and had a team onsite within a week to treat our home, encapsulate our crawl space and install dehumidifiers to prevent future moisture issues. His quick response allowed us to move forward with our project without any delays. The team was professional and addressed all our questions. Thank you, Dean, for helping us out is such short notice and we are very satisfied with the finished work. We look forward to being a customer for many years moving forward.

After a quick call to the Bennett Termite office, Pam was able to quickly identify my reason for calling and schedule a service call with Justin. My experience with each person at Bennett Termite has always resulted in my feeling that my needs were important and the goal was 100% satisfaction.At the conclusion of my service, I was able to receive a clear summary of the service performed on my crawl space dehumidifier equipment. My need for encapsulation service 8 years ago with Bennett Termite is still a great investment for my home and family.
