A-1 Bonded Termites, Inc. offers bed bug fumigation that eliminates 100% of bed bugs, bed bug eggs, and other invasive pests.
Fumigation is the best option to treat a bed bug infestation when:
- Infestation is moderate to severe.
- Immediate eradication of bed bugs is required, such as in multi-unit dwellings (hotels, apartments, and dormitories), when occupants are highly allergic to bites or when there is zero-tolerance for the infestation.
- Repeated crack and crevice applications (liquids, dust, and aerosols) have failed.
- Other treatment methods may damage infested materials, such as high-value furnishings or custom mattresses.

Fumigation Process – Day 1 (Up)
- The Gas Company will arrive between 7-11 am on the morning of the bed bug fumigation to turn off the gas. They will place a tag on the gas meter to signify that the line has been plugged. This tag should NOT BE REMOVED. We ask homeowners to prepare to be without gas as early as 7 am to avoid any inconvenience with hot water or cooking.
- Open waterproof covers on all mattresses and pillows.
- Remove people, plants, and pets from your home.
- The fumigation crew will arrive within the estimated time frame. Then start to prepare to cover the structure with large tarps and secure the tarps with long sandbags.
- The Licensee will meet with the homeowner when possible, review the preparation and property-specific details. They will inspect the interior to verify that it ready for fumigation by ensuring that all people, plants, and pets are out of the structure. Also, checking that food is secure in bags according to the prep sheet.
- We secure the structure with secondary locks on all entryways and post warning signs as required.
- Once the crew prepares the interior and they complete the exterior processes, the warning agent is applied. They will release the proper dose of fumigant into the structure. The tarps contain the fumigant for the specific amount of time to eradicate the drywood termites.
- Leave with the clothes on your back and any medications that are necessary to avoid re-infestation upon return. Once you remove the clothes you left the house with, you must place them into a sealed plastic bag.
Fumigation Process – Day 2 (Aeration)
- Our fumigation crew will arrive at the structure and ensure that all tarps are in place and sealed.
- The fumigation crew will plug in the fan and connect to the exhaust tube to begin the aeration process.
Fumigation Process – Day 3 (Down)
- Once the necessary time of aeration has occurred, the fumigation crew will remove the tarps from the structure.
- After removing the tarps from the structure, the Licensee will take air samples from the interior of the building with equipment designed to detect trace quantities of the fumigant.
- When the readings are at or below target levels by the chemical manufacturer, then remove secondary locks. More importantly, the Licensee will place a re-entry notice on the front door. The gas company requires this notice to restore gas to the property.
- Your home will be ready for your return by 6 pm on this day.
- Anything you bring back into the home and the clothes you are wearing MUST BE LEFT OUTSIDE OR IN THE GARAGE IN A SEALED PLASTIC BAG to avoid re-infestation. All the items in the house should be considered infestation free.
