Initial Treatment

On the day of treatment, all pets and people should vacate the area being treated for bed bugs. After we perform our treatment, residents should not enter the treated areas for at least four hours or until all applied products have dried.

Contractor Repairs 

In some cases, bed bugs can cause more than just discomfort; they may also lead to damage such as holes in floors and walls, as well as peeling paint. If this occurs, it is recommended that repairs be conducted by a contractor within a week of the initial treatment.

Follow-up Inspections and Treatment

A follow-up inspection and treatment (if necessary) will be performed two weeks after the initial treatment. During this time, all stored items should remain stored per the recommendation list and instructions given by Palmetto specialists.
