Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite. For Real

Yes we’ve had lice. And mice. And ants. And waterbugs (cough roaches). We’ve even had a rat (in the backyard – not inside!)

But Bed Bugs? There but for the Grace of God go I.

In reality the odds are stacked against us: Philadelphia is ranked the #2 bed bug city!)

And recently researchers found that bedbugs are developing thicker skins to be more resistant to common pesticides. They’ve also evolved the ability to produce a variety of enzymes that can detoxify insecticides.

For these reasons – as well as health and environmental safety –  experts emphasize using non-chemical methods such as extreme heat, the specialty of local company Prodigy Pest Solutions.

Based in Delaware County, PA and serving the Greater Philadelphia and New Jersey areas, Prodigy Pest Solutions was born in 2012 out of a desire to do things differently and improve the quality and safety of pest control services. After working with a large pest control firm, Matt Kelley missed the opportunity to work directly with customers, seeing the job through to the end, and knowing that he’d be able to stand behind it. He and his wife, Sabrina, launched the company while expecting their son, wishing to offer heat treatment as a way to minimize the use of chemical treatments.

I truly hope you don’t have to deal with bed bugs. But if the critters do make their way into your life, at least Prodigy can make it much less of a nightmare!
