Bed bugs are excellent at hide and seek. They can hide all over the home, and most people will never find them. They are resistant to most of all of the pesticides available on the store shelves, which means it’s important to call the experts to help get rid of them. They get into your beds, furniture, clothes and just about everything else in the home. The worst part about bed bugs is that they enjoy feeding on human blood which means it is very important not to ignore the signs of a bed bug infestation.
Most Important Reasons To Treat A Bed Bug Infestation Quickly
One Single Bed Bug Can Cause An Infestation – The good news is that one male cannot cause an infestation. However, if you bring back an adult female bed bug into your home from vacation, it can cause an infestation. One single adult female bed bug can cause an infestation in just days. This means as soon as you think you have bed bugs, call Terminix for fast bed bug control.
It’s Not A Mosquito Bite…... Most people think that when they see a little red bump on their skin, that it’s most likely a mosquito bite. But, bed bugs leave a smaller bite and lots of them. These tiny bugs feed on human blood during the night while we sleep. They like to take up residence near their food source which means they will be in your bed with you on your pillow and in your sheets. The thought of these creepy little bugs nibbling all night long should be a great incentive to not ignore the signs of bed bugs.
Bed Bugs Spread FAST – Bed bugs can reach maturity in about 35 days, and they can live up to 12 months. A single bed bug can lay up to 1-2 eggs on average per day. Since they can move up to three to four feet per minute, this means they can lay these little eggs all over your home.
Don’t Wait Because It Can Be Expensive – The bigger the bed bug problem, the more difficult it is to eliminate the infestation. If you ignore the signs of bed bugs, they will spread – far and wide – to every single room in your home. This means more bites and lots of effort and expense to eliminate the infestation.
It is very important to consult experts when it comes to bed bug infestations. They are very hard to get rid of because it only takes one to start a new infestation. There is no instant or quick fix to get rid of them. For example, just getting a new mattress will not solve the problem because they are probably hiding in the carpets, taking rides with you in your clothes, and sitting with you on your sofa. If you think you have a bed bug infestation, call the experts, call Terminix Today!
