There are many pests that people never want to see at their house. There are also many pests that seem like are talked about just to scare people and don’t really cause any trouble. One of these pests are called a bed bug. They were a bigger problem long ago and went into remission for a long period of time. In the last decade or so, they have been making a comeback and infested the homes of Americans all over the country. They are a bigger problem it seems the closer we get to the holiday and traveling season but still pose a threat year round. A-Tex Pest Management outlines what you need to know about bed bug inspection and removal.
How Do I Identify Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are a tiny pest that hides in the cracks and folds of your mattress and are nearly undetectable unless you know what you are looking for. They sneak out of hiding during the night time hours and feed on the blood of the host. They will feed until they are full and then go back to hiding. The trouble is in the detection and when you finally realize you may have bed bugs you probably have already been attacked and have a large infestation.
How Do I Inspect for Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are really good at hiding and can stay out of view for weeks. They are very tiny and can hide during the day time hours when there is no one in the bed or couch. The first usual way that someone suspects they have a bed bug problem is when they wake up and start to see small red bumps on their skin. You may think that the bumps are a rash, but they will usually get more and more each night. The only way to really know you have bed bug infestation is to have a professional team come out and inspect. The technician can look for signs of bed bugs that a untrained eye may miss. If they find that you in fact have bed bugs you will need to get treatment started right away.
