A speck of dust is so small. How could something only this size cause so much trouble? Well, it can! It does! The something I’m referring to is a bed bug, and where there’s one, there’s usually plenty more. Hi-Tech Pest Control Services has been successfully eradicating them for over 30 years!
Bed bugs start out as big as a speck of dust for their first stage of life.
Once mature, they are about the size of an apple seed. They are a pest that is slow but steady, traveling at the speed of a ladybug. Bed bugs have a reddish-brown coloring and leave behind traces of dried blood from digesting their food source-humans’ blood!
After bed bugs feast off you, they often linger within the creases of mattresses, bedding, etc. This is how they got their name in the first place, along with dining on you while you sleep. You will find evidence of them on your bedding, but you won’t find them. That would be too easy!
Being proactive is a solid move in preventing bed bugs from harboring within your box springs and mattress with the tiniest tear.
Encasing these pests is the way to go. Purchasing encasements for both of these sleeping items should be ones tested by entomologists. This is not a time to scrimp on quality. Cheaper, poorly designed encasements just give a false sense of security because they most likely won’t hold up, and therefore, won’t offer any protection.
Now if you have bed bugs within your home, encasing your box spring and mattress would prevent any from exiting and any others from entering. The question is, can you sleep with the idea of those bugs dying off within an item you sleep on? They can go a good year without eating. The record for going the longest without their food source is eighteen months. If possible, throw out the old and purchase new!
Please know that the problem is not even close to being over! Bed bugs will move from room to room, hide anywhere they can while they continue seeking for the blood meal. The best way to take care of a pest problem would be to call the trained professionals. If you don’t, you’ll be seeing bed bugs and other pests more than once that’s for certain!
