Family still fighting bed bugs six months later
SPOKANE, Wash. -
If you set foot in Dale Vick's North Spokane home, his first advice is not to touch anything. Bed bug infestations are the worst they've ever been in Spokane according to one pest control company. Prime Pest Control says they get nearly a dozen calls each day in the city of Spokane reporting a new case of bed bugs. They use unique techniques to spot the pests, including a K9 detection unit -- a dog that goes through similar training to police K9s.
They say the most effective method to get rid of bed bugs is a heat treatment, because bed bugs die at a temperature just above 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
Dale Vick watched crews conduct a heat treatment at his home Monday.
