Now businesses and homeowners can eradicate infestations in hours instead of weeks

Online PR News – 17-February-2011 – – Tampa, Fla., February 3, 2011 - Florida’s family-owned pest management company since 1928, McCall Service, Inc. announced today that it has invested in heat treatment, the only bed bug remedy proven to be the most effective, environmentally friendly technology. McCall’s Chief Operations Officer and Entomologist John Cooksey said, “This changes everything for businesses and homeowners affected by the re-emergence of this nuisance pest. Now, instead of having to combat infestations with multiple treatments sometimes lasting weeks, McCall’s heat technology can eradicate the blood-sucking pests in hours.” Bed bug heat treatment involves prepping an infested area and its furnishings then using a mobile heat unit to warm the area up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit for several hours. “This process has been proven to be the most effective method for killing bed bugs from egg through adult stages,” Cooksey said.

With all of the press recently about hotel guests winning law suits it is clear that bed bugs are not an isolated problem that occurs in only the most heavily traveled major cities. Bed bug infestations are wreaking havoc right here in Florida, with many infestations being reported in the Tampa Bay area. “Bed bugs are not a result of poor sanitation; they can affect anyone,” said Cooksey. These pests are primarily carried by travelers and are being reported in the transportation, retail and hospitality industries—with infestation being most prominent in hospitality.

Bed bugs were all but eradicated in this country before the pesticide DDT was banned. Now the most technologically advanced pest management companies, like McCall Service, are investing in greener treatment options and canine inspection. This alleviates rooms being torn apart during human inspection. “With our extensive investment in heat technology, McCall Service becomes the only locally owned pest management company to offer the service, and the only company that can get the business or homeowner back into the infested area in just a matter of hours,” Cooksey said.

McCall Service is a second-generation, family-owned pest management company headquartered in Jacksonville with branch offices here in the Bay area. McCall offers the industry’s top emergency service guarantee 24/7/365, with documentation being a key via our dedicated online reports portal. McCall Service is also a partner and shareholder in Copesan Pest Solutions, a top national commercial pest management provider, allowing McCall and their partners nationwide to sell and service national customers. Copesan offers consolidated national and international billing with local expertise via our partner network.
