Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs 101

What are bed bugs? 

Bed bugs, bed-bugs, or bedbugs are parasitic insects of the cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood. Cimex lectularius, the common bed bug, is the best known, as it prefers to feed on human blood. Other Cimex species specialize in other animals, e.g., bat bugs, such as Cimex pipistrelli (Europe), Cimex pilosellus (western US), and Cimex adjunctus (entire eastern US).


The name "bed bug" derives from the preferred habitat of Cimex lectularius: warm houses and especially near or inside beds and bedding or other sleep areas. Bed bugs are mainly active at night, but are not exclusively nocturnal. They usually feed on their hosts without being noticed.
A number of adverse health effects may result from bed bug bites, including skin rashes, psychological effects, and allergic symptoms. They are not known to transmit any pathogens as disease vectors. Certain signs and symptoms suggest the presence of bed bugs; finding the insects confirms the diagnosis.

Bed bugs have been known as human parasites for thousands of years. At a point in the early 1940s, they were mostly eradicated in the developed world, but have increased in prevalence since 1995, likely due to pesticide resistance. Because infestation of human habitats has been on the increase, bed bug bites and related conditions have been on the rise as well.

How can I make sure to get them out of my home or office?  

Step 1: Detection

Our dogs are 96%-98% effective at pinpointing bedbugs within a 3 foot radius where they’re located. Our dogs graduated from Canine Academy after receiving over 800 hours of training to seek out bedbugs. These dogs work every day side-by-side with our certified dog handlers. This Methodology has been featured on Animal Planet and in The New York Times.

Step 2: Elimination 

Unlike other pests, it was hard to guarantee that bedbugs would not return to a building because the pest control measures might not have reached the insects.

Due to that resistance, we researched and developed new ways to fight against the bothersome pests. During out research, we discovered an unexpected and pleasant surprise. Bedbugs cannot survive if the temperature exceeds 123 degrees Fahrenheit. We developed a thermal heating system that works in most buildings so that we can guarantee that our customers will no longer be bitten or bothered by bedbugs that creep into couches, beds or even the walls.

The thermal bedbug heat system increases the temperature of the space until it exceeds the 123 degree limit by a wide margin. The heat remains on for an extended period of time until there is no possibility of bedbugs staying hidden and alive. Our results have shown that the system works and has gained in popularity among hospitals, schools, office buildings, apartment complexes and private residences.

Pest Control 101




Successful pest control doesn’t just start with science – it continues day in and day out to help ensure your property is protected from pests and the damage they can do. Every Guardian Pest Control Specialist is trained to assess your building’s unique characteristics, then implement and monitor an Integrated Pest Management plan based in science…created just for you.

What is Integrated Pest Management? Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest control that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment.

This information, in conjunction with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment. What type of pests do we help with?
  • Bed bug detection and elimination
  • Bird control and management
  • Chute Management
  • Crawling Insects (roaches, ants, termites, spiders, etc.)
  • Fly management and drain cleaning
  • Flying Insects (flies, bees, wasps, etc.)
  • Mice
  • Rats
When you choose Guardian’s Integrated Pest Management Plan, you choose a program backed by scientific research and proven results.

Why Focus on Existing Buildings?

Retrofitting

Building efficiency is key to cutting energy consumption. In 2007, 878 million metric tonnes of greenhouse gases were attributed to commercial buildings worldwide.  Buildings account for 16 percent of world energy consumption, with a higher share in developed economies (nearly 40 percent of total energy use in the United States). While roughly two percent of commercial floor-space is newly constructed each year, and a comparable amount renovated, the majority of opportunities to improve efficiency over the next several decades will be in existing building stock, most of which are constrained by old equipment, aging infrastructure, and inadequate operations resources. Improved efficiency of existing buildings—through building retrofitting and other measures—represents a high-volume, low-cost approach to reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.


Even for new buildings—constructed in compliance with modern codes requiring higher levels of efficiency—there exist countless savings opportunities in the form of improved maintenance and more efficient operation practices. Buildings are often occupied without a commissioning process to ensure performance in line with original design. The potential disparity grows over time, as improper maintenance and changes in facility operation lead to more and more wasted energy.
