1) How long does a bed bug heat treatment take?
Many companies heat to only 130 degrees ambient. We make sure it is 130 degrees inside of your walls. Our typical heat treatment takes anywhere from 8 to 12 hours.
2) Are A2B’s temperature monitors state-of-the-art, top-of-the-line wireless technology?
We take temperature readings every 15 minutes and send you a copy of these results after your treatment is completed. Many competitors use only a handheld temperature gun to record the ambient temperatures of the room. We are constantly monitoring various rooms all throughout your home at the same time. Many of our bed bug heat treatment sensors are placed deep within your walls. We only use the handheld temperature guns to check places like the inside of your drawer, not for the overall home.
3) Does A2B take pride in every job?
Yes! We have diligent, attentive bed bug heat treatment technicians who take pride in how they perform their job. They never leave your home unattended and are on site throughout your entire heat treatment. They are going inside your home every 30 to 45 minutes to move items around, redirect airflow as needed to ensure that every nook and cranny of your home reaches the temperatures needed for 100% bed bug eradication.
4) Is every employee fully vetted before joining the A2B Solutions team?
Yes. A2B Solutions does a drug screen and full criminal background checks on each employee before hiring. These employees are inside your home so this is very important to us that we hire the right type of individuals. We background check and drug test all our employees to provide you with peace of mind. All our employees arrive in uniform and conduct themselves as the true professionals they are.
5) Is A2B Solutions insured and bonded?
Absolutely! A2B Solutions strictly adheres to all of the state and local requirements for operating a business in Colorado. Our company is fully insured, bonded, and hold all the necessary licenses required for operating our bed bug heat treatment business.
6) How easy is it for bed bugs to spread?
It’s unlikely that a bed bug would travel on you or the clothes you are wearing. You move around to much to be a good hiding place. Bed bugs are more likely to be spread vis luggage, backpacks, briefcases, mattresses, and used furniture. They are hitchhikers!
7) What does a bed bug look like?
Adult bed bugs are oval, wingless, and rusty-red in color, with flat bodies, antennae, and small eyes. They are visible to the naked eye, but often hide in cracks and crevices. When bed bugs feed, their bodies swell and become a brighter red. Newborn bed bugs (Nymphs) look like mini versions of adult bed bugs, but they are extremely light in color—translucent. Like the eggs, they start out very tiny (approximately 1 mm), and grow to about 5 mm (1/4 inch) as adults. The blood is clearly visible in a nymph that has just fed.
8) Are some of the things I hear about bed bugs myths or are they all true?
