Presto-X

Bed bug infestations require an aggressive treatment plan. At Presto-X “Formerly Fischer”, our bed bug experts know what to look for and where to look for bed bugs in your home or business. But because bed bugs are tiny and adept at hiding in out-of-the-way places, detecting all of their hiding places through visual inspection is difficult. For this reason, we have several treatment options available in order to totally eliminate a bed bug population. Our approach to getting rid of bed bugs is to effectively kill them with minimal disruption to your home or business environment. After a thorough bed bug inspection, we will recommend a customized bed bug treatment approach suited to your needs. Below, we’ve outlined the benefits and disadvantages of each treatment type.
