Sleep Tight….And Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite! Pest Control Services

Bed bugs are a real pain and have become a national epidemic. These pests are small, parasitic insects that creep out like vampires in the night to feed on the blood of people and animals while they sleep.

Bed bugs typically hide during the day in mattress seems, head boards, bed frames, dressers, and just about any other small crack they can find. While bed bugs can go for months without feeding, they prefer to eat every few days, and will travel upwards of 100 feet to find a meal.

The bites of bed bugs can cause serious itching which can lead to a secondary skin infection. Anywhere from a day to several days after a bit (or multiple bites), red, swollen bumps, not unlike mosquito bites will appear. The bites could be anywhere on your body. They may feel irritating, but try not to scratch them.

Some people have gone to extreme lengths to get rid of these pests and can end up spending thousands of dollars, and in some instances putting themselves and their family in danger. Some of the measures people have gone to (and please don’t try these), have included; pouring kerosene and/or pure alcohol all over their home(s), or using pesticides that were meant for outdoor purposes which could be ingested and potentially cause serious health issues!

The best thing to do if you have a bed bug infestation, or want to prevent bed bugs is to allow a trained pest control professional to rid your home of these pests. Then you can have a good night and sleep tight without any fear of a bed bug bite.
