HOW we know it works.

Our mobile, unmarked HOW unit is equipped with powerful heating devices that raise the temperature inside to a level that is lethal to bugs. The temperature is carefully monitored to ensure it stays within the optimal kill range to eliminate insects and their eggs.

Once the heat treatment is complete, pests should be completely eliminated and your pest-free personal items are ready to move to a new location.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness
Dale Carlson was extremely responsive and helped me immensely. I can’t recommend his services enough.

Easy to work with. Responsive. Reasonably priced. Nuked our unwelcome guests.

Dale was a great help to me when my college-age daughter noticed bed bugs while fulfilling an internship in Maine. Dale calmly led me through steps to help her while I was in Minnesota and she was half a country away! Dale was professional, quick to reply to my correspondence, and overall a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Dale and his team.

After traveling out of state, exhausted and not taking care of my luggage properly, I spent 4 nights waking up to bites. Scared I brought home bed bugs, I contacted a large exterminator company (which never returned my calls after contacting them twice). So I went local and got Dale. He talked me through my experience and put my mind at ease. Thankfully at this point (fingers crossed), it’s a false alarm. But I have text photos to Dale of “potential critters” and he has politely responded to me each time. Just the customer service alone and treating me like I wasn’t a number makes this a 5 star review. I would highly recommend Dale and his team for any of your pest control needs.

Dale was fantastic for us. We had tenants in our York cottage that said that they had found bed bugs upon checking in. That can be a scary experience, so we refunded their rent/deposit and contacted a professional pest control company. Dale answered his phone at 8:30 on a Saturday night and was more than willing to assist us. Fortunately our renter had taken pictures of the bed bug that they found and we forwarded it to Dale. He asked that we take another picture of it because he didn’t think it was a bed bug. After reviewing the second set of pictures, he guaranteed us that it was not a bed beg and that we did not have to initiate eradication. Great news …big savings for us …and his willingness to help us on a late Saturday night at no cost guaranteed this positive review on Google. Definitely contact Dale if you feel you might have bed bugs!

HOW we see it.

Bed bugs and other pests can have a negative impact on a person’s health and well-being in many ways, including:

1. Skin irritation: Bed bugs bite humans to feed on their blood. These bites can cause skin irritation and lead to red, itchy welts that can be uncomfortable and even painful.

2. Sleep deprivation: Bed bugs are most active at night and can bite you while you sleep. This can cause discomfort and make it difficult to get a good night’s sleep, leading to sleep deprivation and fatigue.

3. Anxiety and stress: The thought of bugs crawling on you while you sleep can cause significant anxiety and stress, especially if you have a phobia of insects.

4. Allergic reactions: Some people can have an allergic reaction to bites from pests, which can cause symptoms such as itching, swelling, and redness. In severe cases, anaphylaxis may occur, which is a life-threatening reaction that requires immediate medical attention.

5. Spread of disease: Some pests can act as vectors of disease and carry bacteria and viruses from one location to another. This can increase the risk of disease transmission and the spread of infections.

Overall, bed bugs and other pests can cause significant health and well-being problems for those who are affected by them. Maine Bed Bugs & Pest Control’s HOW trailer can help eliminate the bed bugs and other pests, so you can live a healthy and more comfortable life.
