Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. The National Pest Management Association, of which Bell Environmental Services is a member, recommends that residents when looking for a pest control company:
-Use a qualified and licensed pest management company that is a member of national, state or local pest management associations
-Buy value, not price
-Before signing a pest control contract, be sure to fully understand the nature of the pest, the extent of the infestation, and the work necessary to solve the problem
-Find out if the company has liability insurance to cover any damages to your house or furnishings during treatment
-If a pest control guarantee is given, know what a company covers, how long it lasts, what you must do to keep it in force, and what kind of continuing prevention and management are necessary.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. How do I know if I have bed bugs (symptoms of bites)?
Typically, skin bitten by bed bugs is reddish with small spots that look like mosquito bites or flea bites. Bed bugs don't inject any kind of venom and aren't believed to carry infectious microbes, however, they can induce their own saliva into the bites. While bed bugs feed, their saliva dulls pain, but can cause mild allergic reactions later on. The result can be mild to severe itching and vigorous scratching that can, in turn, cause infections. It's easy to mistake bed bug bites for flea bites especially since, like fleas, a bed bug infestation will leave dark fecal spots on bed sheets or in their hiding places.
How do I get rid of bed bugs?
Getting rid of bed bugs is very difficult; you must act fast! While insecticides and other chemicals can be used, infected mattresses must be discarded afterwards. Bell Environmental Services in the New York Metro area, instead recommends Instant Freeze, a cutting-edge technology that uses no chemicals, meaning bed bugs can’t resist it. Plus you can use rooms immediately after they’ve been treated! InstantFreeze™ bed bug control leaves behind no residue and is completely safe for furniture, computers, and other sensitive home and office accessories.
Bed bug detection: Where are bed bugs found?
Bed bugs became rare in the US during the1950s due to the widespread usage of DDT and other toxic, non-specific insecticide treatments. They have been re-introduced into the US as a result of an increase in world travel and globalization. Their numbers have been consistently growing due to the difficulty of eliminating bed bugs. Their cryptic hiding nature and their growing resistance to most bed bug sprays and pesticides used today means bed bugs infestation is on the rise.
Bed bugs can thrive in any environment... even very clean ones. They are easily spread and can live anywhere in a home, hotel, or even in public places such as buses, airports, movie theaters, or train stations. Bed bugs are considered hitchhikers, stowing themselves away in handbags, computer bags, luggage, and parcels and even in the seams of clothing, making permanent bed bug control difficult.
