Don’t let the bed bugs bite. Most people have heard this before, but not surprisingly they don’t genuinely pay much attention to things like this. It’s only when they really do recognize bugs in their homes that they start paying attention. Unfortunately, once these little nasties have moved in, they’re extremely reluctant to move out.
If like others you only think about these bugs as being a slight annoyance then you’re certainly mistaken. For example, depending on the kind of skin you have got, you could in fact end up getting marks that will stay with you for several weeks, or maybe even years. Additionally, if you are an asthmatic, and you have these unwanted pests in the home, you should ideally move out until such time that they are entirely eradicated.
Did you know that an individual female bed bug will lay up to 500 eggs in her lifespan? I must admit, that’s definitely not a very large number of eggs, but then again, you’re unlikely to only have only one female in your home. If you do have reason to assume there are bed bugs in the home, then in all probability, you’ll most likely have a few hundred of them. Now consider the type of problem you’re going to have when a lot of them decide to lay 500 eggs, bearing in mind that their youngsters will also be reproducing. As mentioned earlier, after you have an infestation, ridding yourself of them can be extremely problematic. The truth is, the only sure way to get rid of them is actually hiring a specialist pest control company, and one that has knowledge about this kind of problem.
It’s worthwhile remembering that a lot of pest management companies deal mostly with other varieties of pests, that include rats and mice. Because of that, they might not have the practical experience or expertise to free your home of bed bugs. A professional company will however be able to get rid of the infestation in short order and correctly. They have done it many times before, and this is the type of practical knowledge you have to look for.
The idea that these blood sucking pests are living exclusively in bedding, is nothing less than a misconception. They are opportunistic in each and every sense of the word, and for this reason, they’ll take up residence in any area of the house, so long as the conditions are suitable. If the house is heated, and there’s enough moisture in the air, you may see them behind wallpaper, in any electrical sockets, or even amongst your outfits in your cupboards.
