Fumigation is 100% Effective Against Bed Bugs

Whole structure fumigation ensures the elimination of bed bugs. Vikane has been trusted for nearly half a century in the treatment of more than 2 million structures. It’s also the best option for total‑home drywood termite protection.
Vikane is 100% effective treatment for bed bugs. Because it leaves no residue, Vikane provides no protection from future infestations. Bed bugs are an introduced pest and can hitchhike their way back at any time. That’s why your participation is essential in keeping your home bed bug free.
Integrated Bed Bug Control

Some relief is immediate, with complete bed bug control in 12 to 24 days or more, depending upon the severity of the problem and your participation.
