Information About Bed Bugs

Having bed bugs is a nuisance and indications of a problem need to be recognized early to have them removed from your home. Bed bugs are the size of an apple seed, flat-shaped, and reddish-brown. They are swollen in size after a meal. They only feed on blood, typically using humans and pets as their food source of choice. One of their most notable hangouts includes the bedroom, which is where they derive their name from. Bed bugs will infest mattresses, box springs, bedroom furniture, in clothing, behind walls, and even the outlet plates. Because of their size, they are able to live pretty much anywhere they have a reliable food source. But there is a common misconception that bedbugs will only live in the bedroom. They can travel from room to room, very quickly.

Signs Of Bed Bugs

Are you concerned that you have bed bugs? There are a few signs to look for to determine if these pests are present in your home. First, examine your sheets to look for blood stains. These small spots of blood will likely be located toward the bottom of the bed. If you look closely, you may also be able to spot bed bug excrement. Again, these stains are very small, appear to be smeared and may be black, brown or red in color. Look near seams, by the box spring and even on the sheets themselves. It is possible to find bed bug skins as well. The skins are small and translucent, often falling under the bed.

If you have noticed bites on your skin, usually in groups of threes, this is a good indication of a bed bug problem. Don’t discount feeling itchy at night. Often, we see that homeowners shrug off feeling itchy at night, all the while there is a reason behind it, and it could be bed bugs. Let the Bug Guys Pest Control help with our bed bug pest control services.

Bed Bug Prevention

Avoid taking a used mattress into your home, as well as used bedding. If you get used bedding, even from a friend, wash it before putting in closets, drawers, or on your bed. If you intend to purchase second-hand furniture, make sure to look closely at it for signs of bed bugs before you bring it home. If you are really concerned, it may be worth it to have a pest control technician look over the items.

After coming back from vacation, make sure to vacuum your suitcases and put your laundry straight into the washing machine. Keep an eye on your pet’s bedding to make sure you don’t see any signs of an infestation and put a mattress cover on your own bed.

How Do You Get A Bedbug Infestation

While many think that your house has to be dirty for bed bugs to choose a home as their home, this is not the case. A bedbug infestation can happen to anyone, at any time. Bedbugs won’t wander into your house; they are brought in. Those that have recently stayed in a hotel may pick them up and bring them back into their house unknowing. Or if you are an avid shopper at second-hand shops, these are also likely places where bed bugs can be acquired.

Once when they’re transported into your home, the situation can get out of control and pest control professional will need to be called upon. But before contacting a specialist make sure to remove the clutter in your home. Also, wash your bed linens regularly. Vacuum the bed and surrounding area frequently. Be sure to encase the vacuum bag into a plastic bag and dispose of it outdoors. Inspect the home after moving, purchasing used furniture and after guests stay overnight. They can lay up to 5 eggs a day and live for more than 300 days, under the right conditions. They are a nuisance, but they cannot transmit diseases. Bites can be in any area of the skin that’s exposed while sleeping. They may be confused as mosquito bites since they can enable itchy welts.

Bed Bug Treatment

Bed bugs can’t be killed like normal bugs. They are much more resistant. One of the best ways to kill bed bugs and their eggs is with heat treatments. Heat treatments will raise the temperature in the affected room or house well over 110 degrees. At these high levels, bed bugs can’t survive and will instantly die. Heat treatments aren’t the only bed bug control solution. Some pesticides do work in certain situations. Contact the Bug Guys Pest Control today to find out the options that will best work for your home and at eliminating these troublesome bugs.

What is residential pest control?

Residential pest control refers to the services rendered at single-family dwellings. Our treatments can be done inside or outside the property, or both depending on our customer’s needs. We highly recommend that homeowners use both methods of pest control to ensure their property both inside and out remain free from the common insects found in the Palm Desert area.

Residential pest control can also be used in apartments and condos in addition to homes. With routine spray treatments, you can minimize the risk of infestations from insects, including ants, roaches, and termites. Using chemical pesticides, we go around the perimeter of each room and the property.

How often should you do pest control?
How often you should have pest control treatments will vary. There are two different approaches to pest control. One is a preventative treatment, the other eliminating a present infestation. One time visits are needed when an infestation is active. But routine pest control treatments can be scheduled monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly. These can vary based on customers need and budget. We highly recommend for the best preventative course of action to have bi-monthly visits. However, the pesticides we use should be suitable for up to 90-days. Some customers may find that monthly treatments are best, while others quarterly to be a good fit for their needs and budget.

What are the best methods of pest control?
Professional pest controllers use several methods for eliminating infestations and preventative maintenance. Generally, the top two used are organic solutions and traditional chemical pesticides. While natural pesticides are excellent at deterring insects, over time, the solution can become ineffective. The conventional insecticide is highly effective at getting rid of unwanted pests and keeping properties pest-free.

Organic pesticides, while being eco-friendly, isn’t always the best solution. For those that want a specific solution to pests, chemical pesticides are the best remedy for fast and effective results.

Does a new home need pest control?
Absolutely! No home is ‘safe’ from a pest problem. Insects, spiders, and bugs lurk everywhere. New home constructions are no different than older homes. Many of the factors that contribute to an infestation can also be present in a new home, such as leaving food out. But one area that more modern houses have the edge over older homes are better sealed. In most cases, newer homes won’t have a sealing problem around the windows and doors, which is a common entry point for pests. To protect your property, it is always best to have routine treatments. This can prevent any infestations for the life of your home.
