Landmark Solves Bed Bug Problems in Multi-Unit Buildings
We understand how distressing it can be to have a Bed bug infestation and specialize in solving even the most complex cases.
Landmark identifies and discreetly eradicates even the most complex bed bug infestations using our research-based approach. Armed with the latest technology, and informed by scientific research and over 40 years of pest control experience, we work with landlords, HOAs, condo associations, and management companies to identify and discreetly eradicate Bed bug infestations.
Bed Bug Response Plan for Multi-Unit Buildings
Landlords and property managers should create Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plans that detail how a Bed bug infestation will be handled. Landmark works with your management team to write these plans so that you will be ready with a lean, systematic response at the first sign of trouble. Contact Landmark for a Bed bug consultation before you have a problem.
Bed Bug Treatment in Apartments
When Bed bugs are discovered in a unit, it is important to immediately begin assessing whether the infestation has spread to other units, and to take measures to reduce the chance of it spreading.
Research indicates that Bed bugs spread to other units by walking under front doors and down hallways. As soon as an infestation is found, the first step to help prevent other units from being infested is to perform a perimeter treatment in the hallway, which includes a threshold treatment under the door of each unit that shares the hallway.
Research also indicates that Bed bugs can spread to adjacent units through wall voids, so the next step is to remove switch plates in all adjacent units and introduce a natural product that kills Bed bugs in the inaccessible wall voids.
The units that form a cloverleaf pattern (above, below, next to, and across from) adjacent to the infested unit will have their wall voids and base boards treated as well. The beds in these adjacent units will be visually inspected, and monitors and Bed bug traps will be placed.
Bed Bug Treatment that Keeps on Working
It is not enough to destroy adult Bed bugs. The key to solving a Bed bug problem is to arrest the young Bed bug nymphs. Our treatment takes the complete lifecycle of the Bed bug into consideration. We employ EPA-approved products that feature a residual action that keeps working to kill Bed bugs.
DNA Testing for Bed Bugs in Illinois
Landmark utilizes a technique called PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) for the detection of Bed bug DNA. We swab your surfaces and then submit the sample to the lab. If the test indicates a “positive” result, that means conclusively that Bed bugs have been present in the past year. We can have your results to you in 72 hours.
Other insects such as cockroaches, ants, and fleas have a different DNA signature and cannot be mistaken for Bed bug DNA in this test. A “false-positive” result is not possible with this process and all positive results indicate the presence of Bed bug DNA.
