CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — BedBug Chasers, a franchised heat remediation services company, has opened a new location in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The new location will provide bed bug killing and dry out services throughout Iowa.

BedBug Chasers of Cedar Rapids is owned and operated by Jason Rogers and Frank Stephen III, who currently own and operate other local businesses ranging from real estate investment and cleaning services, to a full service banquet facility.

BedBug Chasers heating systems uses 100% chemical free, highly specialized electric heaters and a proven methodology to control bed bugs.

 “We’re not just about bed bugs; we can kill flour beetles, wood beetles and other insects,” said Stephen. “We also see a lot of potential with our superior drying out services, which has definitely been needed the past few years after all of the storms. During Hurricane Sandy, the New Jersey location saved homeowners and insurance companies hundreds of thousands of dollars by being able to dry out an entire home and prevent the growth of mold in only one day. We are looking forward to bringing that same type of benefit to Eastern Iowa and beyond.”

BedBug Chasers VP of Franchise Operations Larry Smith added, “We are thrilled to have Frank and Jason aboard.  They started marketing BedBug Chasers services the day after they signed the franchise agreement and successfully completed their first heat remediation project before the Grand Opening on July 11th.  They are young, hard-charging successful entrepreneurs and they will do what others in Iowa haven’t been able to do and that is control the bed bug epidemic.”
