    • Is There Anything I Can Use for Ants Inside My House Before My Service Technician Comes for Treatment?

    • If My House is Sprayed Right Before it Rains, Will the Treatment Wash Away?

    • I Think I Have Bed Bugs. What Do I Do?

      If you think you have bed bugs there are a few ways to know if an infestation has taken place in your home. One of the most common signs is blood stains on your sheets or pillowcases. A bloodstain will look like small, dark black spots. If you found a bug and think it is a bed bug give us a call to pick up a sample or email us a photo. Still not sure give Hydrex Pest Control a call. We will visually inspect the room and determine if your home is infested with bed bugs.
