Anyone used NYCBedBugs.com?(2 posts)
I was wondering if anyone had used this service, and , if so, what was their experience? My cousin had them at her place - two guys, one dog - and they just passed through the apt. rather quickly, not even checking the linen closets, bathroom, and then sprayed over floors and the bed and box spring. They said the dog picked certain areas, but did not do any further inspection in those areas. He failed to pick up the two recently killed bugs she' planted. They did not spray cracks, outlets, etc. Any thoughts? They also didn't think any follow-up would be necessary. She found several bugs the next day, in areas which were and weren't picked up on by the dogs.
Also wondering whether a regular sauna is hot enough to kill bugs/eggs, anf if so, how much time is necessary!
Hi, this is Bell Environmental Services. You may have seen our commercials which run in the NY Metro area and often feature our bed bug dog, Roscoe. Our old website address was NYCBedBugs.com. A few months ago, it came to our attention that another pest control company which also has a bedbug dog was using the web address NYCBedBug.com (no s). So as not to be confused with this other company, we immediately changed our URL to BellBedBugs.com. However, if one were still to go to NYCBedBugs.com, they are rerouted to the new address. In reading “Bitten Badly’s” post, I’m afraid what we tried to avoid by changing our URL has happened. I believe “Bitten Badly” may be referring to NYCbedbug.com, but has accidently implicated Bell by including the s, making bed bug plural. Or "Bitten Badly" may mean a completely different company but is referring back to a different website.
I feel very confident that “Badly Bitten” is not referring to Bell Environmental because I know that when performing an inspection of an apartment or home our dogs check every area including any closets and bathrooms – many times we wind up checking cars and storage areas as well. If our dogs alert positively to bed bugs, it’s our policy to have our handlers/ inspectors make every attempt, without restriction to the time spent, to verify the dogs’ positive indications. We even send our clients a document, prior to their dog inspection, which states that should the dog alert positively for bed bugs, the handler will then check for physical evidence of bed bug activity. In addition, Bell Environmental would not perform a bed bug treatment on the same day as a dog inspection. We always provide our clients with a list of preparations that must be performed prior to treatment. The actual bedbug control treatment is a detailed, crack and crevices service in which literally every crack and crevice in the room is treated, including the voids behind outlets and switch plates. And finally, we always recommend a minimum of a 2-phase treatment plan, which consists of an initial treatment and a follow up which is ideally scheduled 2-3 weeks after the initial service.
