Few pests pose control challenges as complex as bed bugs. The bed bug is a near-perfect pest: quiet, hard to find, increasingly pervasive, and an egg-producing machine. Bed bugs feed upon the blood of humans or even your pets. Ridding your home of bed bugs requires considerable professional expertise and significant client cooperation.
How Did I Get Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs can infest your home, condo, hotel, or apartment. Unfortunately, cleanliness is not a factor in stopping these pests. Their food source is blood, specifically from you and your family. Even the cleanest homes can still suffer a bed bug invasion. Bed bugs are "travelers" that can hide in your luggage and personal belongings to hitch a ride back to your home. Once there they can hide in many places and are prolific multipliers. Fast treatment is an important bug to minimize the level of infestation.
How To Identify Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are reddish-brown, small, and are about ¼ inch long, wingless, flattened bodies, and move very quickly on six legs. Baby bed bugs are colorless making them even more difficult to spot. Probably the characteristic that makes the bed bug the most effective pest is their ability to get into people’s heads. They assault you when you’re most vulnerable - in your sleep! After feeding on you in the middle of the night, they return to their harborages leaving you with nasty itching welts as the only evidence of their presence.
Why Is It So Difficult To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs?
Unlike some pests, bed bugs do not live in a central colony. They live in groups and while mattresses are common locations for them to reside they can also hide in furniture, clothes, and even rugs. Since they hide during the day and active at night, it is often difficult to spot them. Not only do you need to kill the live adult bed bugs you must also prevent any eggs (bed bug larvae) from maturing into adults. They can be extremely difficult to control without the help of an experienced exterminator.
Where To Find Bed Bugs?
The bed bug’s habit of living in cracks and crevices makes them hard to detect. During the day bed bugs hide in groups in bedcovering, mattresses, box springs, bed frames, baseboards, and surrounding furniture near the bed. Other such indications include, but are not limited to the presence of bloodstains, cast skins, egg deposits, and the occurrence of bites. They can also be found in couches, clothing, and the seats of airplanes. They are the biggest hitchhiker in the travel industry putting a heightened meaning on the old expression “Don’t let the bed bug bite.”
What Are The Signs Of An Bed Bug Infestation?
- Itchy welts in the morning that were not there when you went to sleep
