Bed Bug Removal
Professional Extermination Services

Bed bugs have achieved fame in recent years, due to a widespread outbreak. Although many people mistakenly believe that only people with dirty homes can be saddled with bed bugs, the truth is that they’re extremely common, even for people who live in the cleanest of homes.

What Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are small parasitic pests that feed off blood. They’re around 40,000 years old, which means they’ve been plaguing people and animals for thousands of years. While they can feed off of any mammal, their favorite meal is a human. There is no treatment plan — the only solution is a complete bed bug removal by a professional bed bug exterminator.

If you think you have bed bugs, you probably do. However, some people can mistake an allergic reaction to soap or other detergents for the bites. Additionally, some people suspect they’ve been bitten by bed bugs when it’s another type of pest that’s responsible. If you’re not sure about what’s plaguing you, give the bed bug removal experts at Budget Pest Control a call. The bites are very specific so we can usually help you determine if you need bed bug extermination or another type of pest removal.

Who Can Get Bed Bugs?

Anyone! Bed bugs do not live outside, which means they need to be brought in by someone. Visiting a hotel that’s been infected, living in multi-family housing, or hosting a house guest that’s been infected are all ways bed bugs can come into your home. Contrary to what most people think, bed bugs are not limited seedy motels and can be found in even the most luxurious of accommodations.

Anyone can come into contact and because these pests like to hitch a ride on clothing, people, animals or even luggage, a home can go from bed bug-free to completely infested in a matter of days. They can also travel through ductwork, which is why it’s important to treat the entire home when you have an infestation.

How Do You Know If You Have Bed Bugs?

If you have bed bugs, you’ll likely see a red rash on your skin. Bed bugs can bite anywhere and the bites can look like small, raised, red bumps. They can be itchy and often don’t show up until a number of days have passed, which is why they’re so easily spread.

Bed Bug Removal Methods

Some people attempt to be DIY bed bug killers, but their methods are ineffective. Instead, it’s necessary to call a qualified pest control company to handle bed bug removal. Budget Pest Control has a combination treatment that ensures your home is left 100% free of bed bugs. A botanical, residual material is used for bed bugs that are still alive, while an insect growth regulator helps prohibit any new bugs from hatching. Additionally, since bed bugs can travel so easily, Budget Pest Control takes the time to treat the entire house. This means that family members aren’t reinfecting each other after the initial bed bug removal treatment.

Another reason why it’s important to call a qualified bed bug exterminator is because we are trained to look for telltale signs of these pests, which is important considering they’re typically only about 5 mm big and difficult to see with the naked eye.

Bed bugs are a serious problem, and bed bug removal should not be taken lightly. If you fear that your home has been infested, call Budget Pest Control at (303) 790-7378. We’ll come evaluate the situation and devise a fast treatment plan to ensure you can have a good night’s sleep.

Other Specialty Pets

You may think you are pretty knowledgeable about how to remove unwanted pests from your home with over-the-counter and natural remedies, but what do you do when you find evidence that your home has been attacked by unfamiliar critters? When you need special or unusual pest removal, you need a professional from Budget Pest Control to help you identify and treat your unwelcome visitors.

Fortunately for Colorado residents, only a relatively small percentage of the hundreds of thousands of insect species like it here well enough to call our state home in great numbers. However, there are some intruders who are brought into our area from out of state or out of our area that require professional extermination to deal with. Here are some unwanted guests that might call for special or unusual pest control from Budget Pest Control

Boxelder Bugs

About ½” long with orange markings, boxelder bugs feast on the seeds of certain species of maple. They don’t bite or cause any harm to humans or crops, but they have an unpleasant odor and are very prolific, so a swarm of them on or in your home can produce quite a stench. They are most likely to invade your home as temperatures drop.

Stink Bugs

About ½” long, green or brown in color, and triangular in shape, stink bugs or “shield bugs” can devastate crops and trees. They do no damage to humans, but emit a foul odor if you step on one. Native to Asia, the bugs took root in Pennsylvania and have since migrated to other parts of the country. The brown variety has no native enemies and loves to travel. Exterminating these bugs is only possible by a professional in the field of special or unusual bug removal, so call Budget Pest Control if you notice these bugs in your home or yard.


Silverfish squirm around like fish and even look like them. These gray and blue bugs, measuring ¾” in length, have three long hairs protruding from the rear of their abdomens. They don’t spread disease, but can be destructive to books, clothes, carpet, and any fibrous material. They love dark, moist areas such a basements, kitchens, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and even attics.



Tiny little bugs less than a millimeter in length, springtails can overwhelm a home with their number. They pose no danger to humans, but can cover the side of a house or come inside via cracks and crevices in pursuit of the light. They love moisture, so dwell in mulch and wet soil outside and in over-watered houseplants inside. Soapy water can kill springtails, but you may need the pros at Budget Pest Control for a big infestation.

Clover Mites

Minuscule in size, clover mites live in grasses and fields of clover where they suck sap. They like sun and warmth, so they come into homes through cracks when it gets cool and congregate on windowsills on the sunny side of the house. Clover mites are hard to control indoors with chemicals that are safe for pets and humans, but can be easily wiped up with a damp cloth or vacuumed. Professionals from Budget Pest Control can spray around the foundation, walks, and lawns to form a barrier.
