With the national media and public awareness of bed bug infestations at an all-time high, we at 603 Pest Control are ready to help you by providing solutions to help you win the bed bug battle.
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 or business of bed bugs requires considerable professional expertise and significant client cooperation.
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.
Where to Find Bed Bugs
The bed bug’s habit of living in cracks and crevices make 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 to Do If You Have Bed Bugs
The unfortunate news is that the clean-up process is intensive to end the bed bug outbreak. You might need to discard a mattress, depending on how serious the infestation is in your home. To fully eradicate these unwanted houseguests, 603 Pest Control can provide you with helpful information to prep space before your initial inspection and thorough treatment.
Rest assured. 603 Pest Control can eliminate the bed bugs so everyone in your home can get a good night’s rest.
