Bed Bug Specialist

Don’t bug out over bed bugs! The professionals at Bee Safe Pest Control offer effective solutions for the immediate removal of bed bugs from any location and treatment to prevent future infestations.

There’s been considerable news coverage about bed bugs recently and the increase in their occurrence throughout the country. It’s not something anyone wants to think about facing.  People tend to associate the presence of bed bugs with dirty, unsanitary conditions, but that is not always true. Bed bugs are just as likely to reside of the cleanest living areas.

Bed bugs are oval in shape with flattened bodies. They are wingless and they are of a slightly red color. People often mistake other insects including lice and small cockroaches with bed bugs.

Bed bugs are only one-fifth inch long, or about the equivalent of an apple seed. Although they don’t fly, bed bugs can move fairly rapidly over walls, floors and ceilings, and they can quickly multiply into a large infestation.

One female bed bug can reproduce up to 500 offspring—which are about the size of a speck of dust—during its life. Three generations of bed bugs can survive each year.

Bed bugs bite and they are annoying. Some individuals can get skin infections and scars from continuous scratching caused by their bite, but bed bugs don’t spread diseases.

Here are a few facts about bed bugs from Bed Bug Specialist:

• Bed bugs are not active during the day, but they become active at night.

• They like to feed—bite--usually while people are asleep.

• Bedbugs feed on humans and animals by piercing the skin and withdrawing blood. They feed for several minutes until they are full and then crawl away unnoticed. In most cases you will not be able to feel a bed bug bite at first, but it eventually turns into an itchy welt that often is mistaken for mosquito or flea bites.

• Unlike flea bites, bed bugs tend to feed on any area of the body that is exposed, not just around the ankles. 

Bed bugs hide in folds and crevices and along the seams of mattresses and fabric on furniture. It is extremely important to carefully check your mattress and box springs for any signs of bed bugs. Red, blood-like smears on sheets could be a result of smashed bed bugs. These insects can also hide in luggage and even inside vehicles.

Professional bed bug treatment can include a variety of combinations of different pesticides as well as eco friendly non pesticides, including heat treatment. This treatment involves heating a room to 118 degrees or higher. This is a safe and effective way to kill bed bugs in an infected area.

It is extremely important to call a professional immediately if you know or suspect you have a bed bug infestation. If you think you may have bed bugs on your bed, it’s extremely important that you DO NOT start sleeping on another bed, sofa or other locations inside your home or someone else’s home. That would only spread the bed bugs to a new site.

During treatment you should stay in your home and continue to sleep in your bed. That will lead these pesky insects to the poison that will insure they are no longer a problem.

Trying to treat bed bugs yourself can also cause the insects to spread to other areas of your home, making it much more difficult for anyone, including professionals, to eradicate them from your property.
