Remove birds, cats and dogs. Cover fish tanks with a large towel. Put away any open food or drinks, remove blankets, top sheet and pillows from the bed and place them in a bag. (leave the fitted sheet on the mattress) Take these items to the laundry and send them through the dryer for 20 minutes to kill any eggs / bed bugs while the exterminator is treating the unit. The bed bug cycle is 30 days. In the rare case sightings appear after 30 days, capture a live bed bug for us to examine and call for a retreat.
