15 Feb WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT BED BUGS?
If you’ve never experienced a bed bug infestation before, consider yourself lucky. For those that have experienced or are currently experiencing a bed bug problem, you know how frustrating the issue can be. Bed Bugs make their way into your home on your clothing, luggage, and pets. Once they’re inside, they have a nasty habit of multiplying. If you wake up one morning with red marks all over your body, you know you have a huge problem. In today’s blog, we give you an information download on what bed bugs are and how to get rid of them.
Bed Bugs Are Parasitic Insects, Which Means They Present a Hazard
The first, and most important thing to know about bed bugs is that they are parasitic insects. That means they feed on warm blood. Since they attach to people and rely on blood for sustenance, they present a biohazard. Making things worse, these insects are incredibly fast. They hide in the dark and can get out of danger quickly, so they’re usually difficult to spot. They don’t have to eat often either. You may experience bed bug bites one night and then not see anything again for 10 days. That doesn’t mean your problems are over.
Once an Infestation Occurs, Bed Bugs Can Be Difficult to Remove
Since bed bugs are so elusive, they’re difficult to remove from the home. They can also multiply and repopulate quickly. When you treat a room for bed bugs, you need to be as thorough as possible. It’s a terrible feeling to think you’ve gotten rid of the source of your problem, only to experience bed bug bites a week later. Further, since bed bugs populate to such high numbers, you can’t just squash a bug and be done with it. You need a treatment method that gets rid of the entire colony.
Heat Treatment Is an Effective Way to Eliminate Bed Bugs
If you need to remove bed bugs from a space, heat treatment is the way to go. Heat treatment allows you to treat an entire room without the use of potentially dangerous chemicals. Bed bugs will die if their body temperature surpasses 113 Fahrenheit, which means you can heat a space without a huge risk to your property. Plus, you don’t run the risk of creating an immunity within the bed bug population (a problem that can occur with chemical treatment).
