How to Get Rid of Bedbugs?
Bed bugs are oval, chestnut-brown insects and are flattened from top to bottom. Adult bed bugs measure about ¼ inch in length. The mouthparts are shaped into an elongated proboscis, which, when not in use, is held directed backward underneath the body. When a bug is ready to feed, the proboscis is extended forward and the stylets within are thrust into the skin of a host. ApolloX Pest Control is an affordable bed bug exterminator service that can help you identify and eliminate bed bug infestations.
Where does a Bed Bug Live and Breed?
Bed bugs get their name because they like to live and feed off you in your bed! They like to hide in small cracks and crevices close to a human environment. They can be found behind baseboards, wallpaper, upholstery, and in furniture crevices. If you want peaceful sleeping without the fear of bed bug bites, it is always a good idea to avail the services of a professional bed bug pest exterminator.
Been to a flee market before? (or rather the train station for bed bugs). Bed bugs often come into a home via secondhand articles and furniture. They may also migrate between homes via wires, plumbing, or rain gutters. In addition, since warehouses, trucks, and railroad cars may be infested, common bed bugs can infest homes by stowing away on new furniture stored or shipped from these places. Because of this any DIY bed bug extermination done will almost always be temporary. Only a professional bed bug pest control service will be able to rid of a bed bug infestation permanently.
Bed bugs are active only at night, usually just before dawn. During the day, they hide in cracks and crevices in walls, floors, beds, and furniture. Therefore they are very difficult to be detected and only an expert bed bug pest exterminator would be able to successfully locate and remove any infestations. When only a few bed bugs are present, they live close to human sleeping areas; when numerous, they can be found in many rooms of the house. A characteristic “bed bug odor” is frequently present in a home infested with bed bugs. Extermination from a bed bug pest control company will rid your home of this odor.
Adults feed once a week on average but feed many times during their four-month or longer lifespan. Mated female bed bugs deposit their eggs in their resting places. One female will produce about 345 eggs during her lifespan. The best way to rid of an infestation is by hiring the services of a professional bed bug pest control company.
Bed Bugs should not be taken lightly and a bed bug pest control service should be called on the first indications of bed bug presence in your home or office. Bed Bug bites can produce irritating, itching, and burning sensations. Bed bugs feed rapidly, becoming engorged in less than ten minutes. The act of biting is usually not felt, but later there is an allergic reaction to the protein found in the bed bug’s saliva. A colorless wheal or lump develops at the bite location. Discomfort from bed bug bites may last a week or more. It is advised that if there is any indication of bed bugs presence, immediately call a bed bug pest control service for extermination.
Bed bug infestations are very hard to detect and in case of any symptoms one should always call professionals for help, but there are certain preventive measures you could take to reduce the risk of bed bugs ruining your nights.
- Don’t buy used mattresses or padded furniture.
- Keep your suitcases off the floor and covered in plastic when staying in hotels.
- Use a flashlight to look for bedbugs when traveling.
- When you return from a trip, place all of your clothes in the dryer (if your fabric will allow it) on high for 45 minutes to kill any bed bugs from your trip.
- Not fully grown, unengorged adults, especially their eggs, are hard to see, so if you think you have bed bugs, call ApolloX a bed bug pest control company before they take over your home.
