Stopping A Bed Bug Infestation
How Do Bed Bugs Get Around?
The very first step in keeping these pests out of your home or place of business is understanding how they get there in the first place. In most cases, people don’t have a giant neon sign outside their homes advertising free bed bug living quarters.
Bed bugs can silently sneak into your luggage in any hotel room. As soon as you unpack, they will quickly take over their new home, but this is not the only way these pests end up inside your home. Their eggs can and will stick to the bottoms of your shoes, a car or truck tire, or even your clothing. They do not discriminate, and they will use any method at their disposal to get inside your home.
Speed Helps Prevent Infestation
Bed bugs can be stopped, but only if you act quickly. It may not be too late if you have seen bed bugs in your home. Call a pest control professional immediately. In many cases, you won’t even see these little pests. They like to wait and come out under cover of darkness. Call a pest control professional immediately if you even slightly suspect that you may have a bed bug or two. The speed at which you start the process can mean a difference in just a few bed bugs or a full-out infestation!
Are There Obvious Signs of Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs might be one of the sneakiest insect pests on the planet, but they always leave behind signs that they are present. The most obvious sign of bed bugs is small bites that will appear on your skin in the morning. They like to feed on you while you are sleeping.
