Uh oh! It’s bed bug season… again. Technically, it’s always bed bug season as this tiny pest does not have a hibernation period. Bed bugs can be a massive inconvenience, for such little buggers.
According to Patch.com, in 2018 California was among some of the most severely infested states with bed bugs! Bed bugs do not discriminate; they will gladly set up camp wherever they find a comfy nook in a couch, a crevice in your favorite chair, or any other opportunistic dwelling as long as it’s close to you and your loved ones.
One of the more frustrating aspects of dealing with bed bugs is their method of traveling. They have no problem hopping on your shoulder and taking a ride on the bus with you to visit your grandma at the nursing home. Once one teeny, insignificant, pregnant bed bug finds its way to Nana’s favorite house robe, it’s nesting time and out come the babies. They will be quick to visit Nana’s neighbors too.
Fortunately, pest control companies like ourselves can help terminate your bed bug problem and prevent future infestation. If you suspect bed bugs, check in your dresser drawers, between your couch cushions and mattress and box spring; you will see brown smudges which are bed bug excrement. You might also find bites on yourself, your family members, or family pets. It is hard to spot a live bed bug as they are mostly active during the night. You might see one or two jumping around, and if so, don’t brush it off thinking “it’s just one little bug.” It is never just one bed bug; there are always many more. Once you have determined you have an infestation, call us right away. There is a good chance you can catch the infestation early and avoid a massive outbreak.
Good luck and remember to call Pest Solutions Termite & Pest Control for all of your pest control needs.
