Bed Bug Heat Treatment —
Athens, Georgia

I was called to treat a home located in Athens, Georgia. The gentleman worked on decluttering his home, but after speaking to him on the phone, I realized he was probably not ready. I asked him to send me a picture of the inside so I could determine if he was ready for a heat treatment. I’m so glad I did this because he was nowhere near ready. His home, in Athens, was totally cluttered with twenty years worth of stuff. I advised him to continue to declutter his home and after spending another week he was ready to be treated.

How Do Bed Bugs Spread?

I remember showing up at the home and seeing a ton of furniture piled up on the street. The first thing I did was look to see if he had placed a sign on the items to let people know not to dumpster dive. Of course, he had not put anything out to deter people from picking thru it. I grabbed a sheet of paper and wrote, “contaminated items, do not take” and taped it to the couch. I understand that nobody wants to put a sign on their trash that says, “bed bugs”, but it’s important to put “contaminated” or “hazardous materials” to deter people from picking thru it. I’m sure that many of the people that pulled items from his trash pile in Athens, Georgia, have now figured out that they have bed bugs. Unfortunately, it is often the poorest people in the community that will dumpster dive and then end up financially unable to get rid of bed bugs, thus continuing to spread it throughout the community.

Horrific Bed Bug Infestation

Walking into this home in Athens, Georgia, was an experience that I don’t often have. There were bed bugs walking all over the remaining furniture. The bed bugs were crawling on the walls, on the ceilings and even crawling on his shirt and pants. I can tell you that I made sure I physically stayed inside near the heaters for a few minutes just to be sure that anything that had crawled on me would be sure to die.

Bed Bug Treatment or Living with Bed Bugs

I was really surprised to see how long he had lived with bed bugs when he could pay for the treatment thru his trust account. I asked him why he hadn’t treated sooner and he said that he had knocked them back several times with a spray that he bought from Lowe’s. He said he called us to get treated for bed bugs because his family in Athens wouldn’t come over to visit him anymore. I would say he had bed bugs for around two years and since he was an active retiree he was knowingly spreading the bedbugs in his community. I don’t think he wanted to hurt others, but I just don’t think he understood how traumatizing these bugs are. He viewed his bed bug infestation like it was nothing more than some roaches and failed to comprehend how many times he was being bitten. Obviously, he’s one of the forty percent that don’t have any reaction- no bug bite sores or itching.
