Don’t let the bed bugs bite…
At Hi-Tech Pest Control, our philosophy is simple: we get rid of the bed bugs the first time around so you don’t have to waste time or money. We are not like the national chains that bring in an untrained or undertrained exterminator with a bottle of bed bug killer. Throughout the past thirty years, we have killed millions and millions of bed bugs by learning something from each individual infestation and passing that knowledge on to you, the customer.
We exterminate bed bugs like nobody’s business.
The first step Hi-Tech takes in treating a bed bug problem is correctly identifying that you do, in fact, have bed bugs, and then finding the source. It doesn’t matter if these pesky bedbugs entered your home through a suitcase or a used appliance…they’ll be leaving in a body bag (or a vacuum bag) once Hi-Tech Pest Control gets to them! After finding the source, we combine heat and chemicals to treat the bedbugs, and then go through the house with a fine-toothed comb to make sure our treatment of the bed bugs was thorough and effective. Finally, we will educate you on the source of the bugs and the preventative measures you should take upon removal so that you can stay bed bug free. We kill bed bugs so you don’t have to!

Why don’t do-it-yourself bed bug treatments work?
Most people don’t realize that the bedbugs found today are much more resilient than the bed bugs found 50 years ago. Due to their adaptive nature, today’s bed bugs are actually immune to some of the chemical methods used in the past, such as DDT and the pyrethroid class of insecticides, due to the fact that the genes of these bed bugs have adapted and mutated so many times that they actually have a thick cuticle that can’t be penetrated by inecticides. Furthermore, the toxic insecticide is converted by the bugs’ high level of enzymes into a much less toxic substance, making bed bugs resistant to most at-home chemical treatments.
Most, if not all, of the over the counter bed bug removal products being advertised in stores such as Walmart or Home Depot contain pyrethroid as the insecticide. These at-home bed bug treatments are typically found in a powder or a spray form, with the listed insecticide containing the suffix “thrin”. This includes deltamethrin, cyfluthrin, bifenthrin, and permethrin, as well as esfenvalerate and fluvalinate, all of which do not affect bed bugs the way they used to. The at-home bed bug treatment products that do not fit into this category are simply taking advantage of a loophole in the EPA’s regulations by allowing products with certain active ingredients on their 25B list to market these over-the-counter bed bug treatments without any safety testing or justification for their claim that they get rid of the bed bugs for you.
Bed bug exterminators (and pest control professionals in general) are required by law to have certain certifications and licenses. Thus, they have access to many bed bug solutions the general public could never simply purchase at a store. Unfortunately, many people who are trying to get rid of their bed bug problem at home waste time and money on these products, often allowing the bed bugs to spiral out of control, causing even more damage to their home and belongings. Suddenly, a problem that could have been solved for under $1000 has become a $5000 or $10000 problem due to the damage to furniture, clothing, and other belongings.

bed bugs are everywhere in Michigan…
Many people only think of bed bugs as coming from hotels, but that is far from the truth. Although that is the majority of commercial bed bug locations, they are often found in schools, churches, public transportation, and shared living spaces such as apartments, condos, and senior living communities.
