Effective Solutions For Multi-Family Properties

We offer a wide range of pest solutions to help you manage the insect and rodent problems in your multi-family housing properties including:

Know Your Options For Bed Bug Treatments

We have partnered with several local organizations to provide bed bug treatment options to the affordable housing and multi-family housing markets in the Boulder and Tacoma areas, as well as throughout our service area.

Bed bugs require technical expertise, experience and diligence! Choosing the right combination of services can mean the difference between bed bug relief and more sleepless nights. Sprague is a full service company and can help you select the services that best fit your situation.

Preventative Treatments

While we cannot prevent bed bugs from being introduced into your property, we can help to prevent severe infestations and take proactive measures to prevent bed bugs from crawling to other areas or rooms. Treatments include small, preventative applications of inorganic dust (i.e. Mother Earth D) around the base of the molding behind the bed(s) and areas immediately adjacent to the bed(s), and any brackets or rails that support the headboard. This preventative application is intended to isolate bed bugs that may be introduced into the room, limit infestations and prevent bed bugs from spreading to other areas of the room or adjoining rooms.

Conventional Treatments

Conventional treatments use vacuums, steam, and the skilled application of pesticides to kill bed bugs. The treatment effectively kills adult and nymph bed bugs, but does not kill eggs. After the first service, two (2) additional services are needed to kill bugs that hatch from the eggs. Three (3) services are needed to control all the bugs. This method is typically the least expensive.

Heat Treatments

Heat treatments involve raising the temperature of an infested area to 140° to kill all life stages of insects. Within a single 6-8 hour treatment, rooms can return to normal use, free of live bed bugs. Heat treatments are a non-chemical, non-toxic approach. In some cases, a chemical application may be used in conjunction with the heat treatment.

Mattress and Box Spring Protective Covers

Mattress and box spring covers protect you from being bitten by bed bugs living inside your mattress and box spring. They allow you to salvage your mattress instead of throwing it out. The covers also prevent bed bugs living in your mattress from re-infesting the rest of your treated home. Mattress and box spring covers also protect new mattresses from becoming infested.
