28 Jul Fire Stations Battle Bed Bugs – Is the Fight Over?
Your local SC bed bug specialist gets called to all kinds of properties because of pests that everyone loves to hate. However, there’s never been a time when bed bug treatment was needed at a South Carolina fire station. That is until now. Four different fire stations along the coast needed to be treated for bed bugs recently. It was a terrible situation for the firefighters to be in.
Bed Bugs are Hard to Kill
If you’ve ever dealt with bed bugs before, you know they’re hard to kill. If you take on the job yourself, you’re likely to miss a lot of them. When that’s the case, it doesn’t take long for them to repopulate and get worse.
These fire stations had to relocate their crews while they treated the affected areas with propane tank heaters. 16 fire stations were treated in all, just to be certain that the bugs were gone. Bed bug sniffing dogs confirmed it when the job was completed.

Fortunately, the propane tank heater method worked for these fire stations. This situation could have become a lot worse very quickly. For civilians, using propane heaters to self-treat for bed bugs is very dangerous. You could inadvertently start a fire. It’s much better and safer to leave bed bug treatment to the professionals.
