Bed Bug Pest Control

The phrase “don’t let the bed bugs bite” is more than just a cute way to say good night.

This phrase is an indication of a true problem. Bed bugs are real insects that bite and feed off of human blood. They exist in all of the 50 states and people are reporting an increase of infestations.

Bed bugs can survive in extremely cold and hot temperatures. Nearly freezing temperatures or severely high temperatures are not able to stop a bed bug infestation from occurring. The best way to prevent an infestation or to stop one is by contacting Bed Bug Pest Control.

Even though they are called “bed bugs” these insects can be found in other areas of the homes or even in a business. As long there are cracks and crevices in a home or building and humans to feed off of, a bed bug infestation is possible.

A bed bug can ingest seven times their weight in human blood. Even though they are able to consume much blood, they are able to survive several months without eating.

Some individuals believe that keeping a clean home or business will help to prevent bed bugs from appearing but this is false. Below average sanitation does not lure bed bugs to one’s place of residence or business. Bed bugs enter homes or business with the help of humans. Humans can easily provide transportation to a bed bug without knowing. These bed bugs can be at hotels, on public transportation, in other people’s homes, or other public places.

In order for an infestation to begin it only takes one bed bug. This one bed bug is able to lay 5 eggs in one day. This will result in the appearance of 5 more bed bugs; those bed bugs can then lay 5 eggs each. This cycle will continue until an infestation occurs.

Bed bugs are not like other insects, they are able to survive without foods for many months, they are able to live in freezing and boiling hot temperatures, and they can also multiply at quick rates. Because an infestation can occur quickly, a home or business owner should contact Bed Bug Pest Control to end this problem.
