Bed Bug Exterminators Serving Milwaukee, Kenosha and Racine
Ehlers Is The Milwaukee Bed Bug Exterminator Where Others Fail
Bed bugs infiltrate homes in every neighborhood from Shorewood and Whitefish Bay down to Racine and Kenosha. The misery they cause goes far beyond their diminutive size.
The first problem you come up against in dealing with them is, in fact, their size. Bed bugs are very small and hard to find. It is practically impossible to find and kill an entire bed bug population without the assistance of a professional Milwaukee pest control specialist. Do-it-yourself bed bug treatments are usually ineffective and can even worsen the problem.
Fortunately, we're the Milwaukee bed bug exterminator southeastern Wisconsin residents trust. Our team of Wisconsin area bed bug control experts have extensive experience eliminating severe infestations in both single family homes and multi-unit residential housing structures. Most often, elimination is achievable through a combination of methods including manual removal, heat and pesticide product applications.
Signs You May Have a Bed Bug Infestation
Adult bed bugs are small, round, and brown, about the shape and size of an apple seed. If you see any of the sings below of bed bugs in your home, you need to call the pest control professionals at Ehlers right away! Bed bugs will only get worse if they are left untreated, which means you need a team of professional exterminators ASAP!
Bites on your skin
Bed bugs tend to leave red welts on your skin. Common places where they bite are on your back, legs, and the back of your neck.
As bed bugs grow, they shed their skin and leave casings lying around, these can often be found underneath pillows, in matress seams, under matresses, and under the bed.
Droppings and Stains
Bed bugs often defecate in the bed, leaving black and brown stains. Some stains are even from sleeping residents rolling over bed bugs as they feed on their skin.
Bed Bug Identification
Bed bugs are reddish-brown, up to a ¼ inch long. Bed bugs are nocturnal and small, making detection difficult. Bed bugs are often found in clothing, bedding, box springs, mattresses, furniture and walls.
A bed bug infestation is often evident in bloodstains on bedding and mattresses after the sleeper rolls over and crushes the bed bugs or after the sleeper is bitten. Bed bugs exude a musty odor and leave dark brown or black spots of excrement, eggs and molted skin on infested surfaces.
Bed bugs can also be detected by their bite. Unlike other insects, bed bug bites appear in precise lines containing multiple red marks and causing an itchy, burning sensation. The bites occur at night while you're sleeping, or attempting to sleep.

Heat treatments are one proven method for killing off bed bugs. The heat professionals use to exterminate bed bugs is intense and impossible to duplicate by simply turning up your thermostat.
The temperature has to reach 120 to 135° F and stay there for several hours. For this kind of heat, special heaters need to be brought in.
When we're done, your bed bug problem is over. Bugs and eggs—all dead.
Bed bugs are incredibly tenacious insects and they've become increasingly resistant to the most commonly used insecticides. A bed bug pro doesn't let bed bugs adapt, a pro exterminates.
Cheap exterminators for bed bugs often use cheap chemicals due to the chemical's, but often these chemicals can linger in your home and can possibly harm pets or children, and they still won't correct the problem.
There is plenty of well-meaning DIY advice out there about eliminating bed bugs, but in most cases people end up having to call in a professional.
Not a DIY Project
Under no circumstances should you attempt to replicate this kind of heat by turning up your thermostat and running space heaters or industrial sized kerosene heaters.
Not only is it unlikely you will ever reach anything close to the temperature necessary to kill bed bugs, but you may very well end up accidentally causing a fire.
While that's one sure way to eliminate bed bugs, it's not one we recommend.
