Do you have a problem with Bed Bugs? Many homeowners from New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island trust Bain Pest Control to help remove infestations with safe, effective methods. Trust our reputation for providing the best possible customer service.

In the last ten years, more homes and businesses have been reporting issues with bed bugs. It has been an increasing problem in apartment buildings as well as college dormitories, hospitals, nursing homes, and even hotels. Bed bugs can survive without hosts for up to a year, and their eggs are impervious to many pesticide treatments. When you notice you have a problem, chances are it’s an extensive one.

As a staff, we are committed to continual education so that we can provide our clients with the latest treatments to remove their problem. Our technicians are chosen based on their knowledge and skill, many of them with a background in entomology. They are also courteous professionals with excellent customer relation skills.

We’ll provide you with fact sheets about these pests, discuss the extent of the infestation with you, and explain the best options for extermination. We generally take a multidisciplinary approach to pest management, which includes both chemical and non-chemical measures. All of the methods we use are guaranteed safe to protect you, your family, and even your pets!

Currently, we offer two-bed bug elimination programs: traditional & heat treatments.

Bed Bug Facts

  • When surfaces that have been treated with a liquid chemical dry, there is very little, if any, an effect on bedbugs that travel over that surface.
  • Eliminating eggs is the #1 control problem. Very few pesticides can kill bed bug eggs
  • Adult female bed bugs can lay from 2 to 5 eggs every day for up to 6 months.
  • A single bed bug may only feed once every 7 days
  • It can take 7-10 days for a bed bug egg to hatch
