BED BUG TREATMENT CHECKLIST
This treatment checklist is designed for current customers who have scheduled BED BUG full prep treatment services with guard Pest Control. If your technician has schedule a LOW PREP treatment option, we will provide specific preparation instructions to you.
For optimal results we recommend the following steps prior to and following treatment. If at any time you have any questions or concerns please contact our offices. We are always glad to help!
Please note that the effectiveness of a bedbug treatment will depend heavily on resident cooperation with pre and post treatment checklist.
PRIOR TO TREATMENT
Wash all linens, bedding materials, clothing, stuffed animals, and other machine washable items in the highest allowable water temperature and dry on the hottest allowable heat setting. Seal in airtight storage bags or remove from home prior to treatment. Do not store items loose in cars as this can spread bed bugs further. If you do not wish to wash items - they can be placed in commercial garbage bags for treatment but you will not be able to open them for 10 days.
Remove any jewelry, weapons, or other personal items you do not want placed in treatment bags by technicians. Electronics such as televisions and video game consoles will need to be treated as these can harbor bed bugs.
All clothing items that are not machine washable should be dry-cleaned. Plan to pick up items from dry cleaner AFTER your home has been treated.
Remove all items from cupboards, cabinets and drawers placing in covered boxes until 4 hours after treatment. Cabinets and drawer SHOULD BE COMPLETELY EMPTY.
Vacuum all floors, carpets and area rugs. Use attachments to vacuum baseboards and small areas. Discard of vacuum bag in a sealed garbage sack immediately after vacuuming.

Pull all large furniture 3 feet away from walls/baseboard in all rooms to be treated.
