Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs are back. Since the 1990s, they have increased in numbers across the world. They use both humans and pets as hosts and feed on their blood, most often at night. Bed bugs have a secretive nature, making it quite difficult to detect them and their hiding spots. Count on the Pest Solutions team to help you eliminate your bed bug infestation.
How Do Bed Bug Infestations Happen?
Because of their small size, it's hard to spot individual bed bugs. In addition, they may go for months without eating and can survive in used furniture that's put out for sale or in luggage and clothing as you travel. Once in your home, bed bugs establish colonies in your furniture, air ducts, mattresses, and other concealed areas.
Prevention is Key. If you want to prevent an infestation, it's best to avoid any place where bed bugs live and breed. When you stay overnight at hotels, keep your clothing in your luggage, and avoid placing it on the floor right away. Inspect beneath the sheets, in the mattress folds, and around the bed for clusters or black dots. When you come home, put your clothing directly into the dryer to kill any bugs that may have come along for the ride.
