Bed bugs are some of the most concerning pests and bed bugs extermination is one of the most specialized treatments available by pest control professionals. Bed bugs can enter your home by way of your clothing, personal items or in your suitcase. Once inside your home, they can travel through plumbing pipes and electrical wires and move from room to room within your walls.

 

Bed bugs are attracted to warmth and the presence of carbon dioxide emitted by humans. Generally, bed bugs feed on the blood of humans while they are in a restful state in bed. Bed bug bites are usually not painful and they do not carry any known diseases. However, individuals with allergies may be susceptible to the bites as a result of the saliva produced by the bed bugs. Additionally, as populations rise, bed bug excrement and skin casings can produce more allergen issues.

 

Bed bugs hide in the folds, crevices, and seams of upholstered furniture and mattresses. As populations increase, infestations will occur on headboards and other furniture within the room. Bed bug excrement appears as dark spots on surfaces and crushed bed bugs will leave bloody marks on bed linens and mattresses.

 

The only way to remove an infestation of bed bugs is by the skilled precision of a professional pest control company—that’s where we come in.

 

LIFE CYCLE:

A few bed bugs can become a large infestation quickly. One female bed bug may produce up to 500 offspring during its lifetime, and three generations can live per year.

  • Egg – The female lays her eggs, usually in clusters of less than 50. She uses a sticky substance to glue her eggs to rough surfaces. Eggs hatch in 1-2 weeks.

  • Nymph – The nymph must consume a blood meal before it can molt. It molts 5 times to reach adulthood. In warmer temperatures, the nymph stage may last just 3 weeks; in cooler temperatures, nymphs may take many months to mature.

  • Adult – Adult bed bugs live about 10 months, though some may live substantially longer.

   TREATMENT

 

The first line of defense is to thoroughly inspect the home for the presence of bed bugs.

If bed bugs are confirmed, a treatment plan will be discussed with the homeowner. The inspection and the severity of the infestation will determine what course of treatment will be provided. As pest professionals, we have a variety of treatment options available to us. It is important to note that we treat each home environment differently because no two situations are the same.

 

   Additionally, we will recommend follow-up treatments within the home to ensure the effectiveness of the initial treatment program and to ensure future protection against on-going infestations.
