Why is it So Difficult To Control Bed Bugs?

Posted on by fpadm

There are many pests that tend to become a nuisance in our homes; while some of them are large and noisy like rodents and can be spotted easily, others such bed bugs are  comparatively quiet and reclusive and very silent as well. They make their home in the creases of mattresses, in upholstered furnishing, the back of curtains, under carpets and behind loose wallpaper as well as behind photo frames and in nightstands etc.

Control Bed Bugs

As mentioned earlier, bed bugs are very quiet creatures that come out at night once you have gotten to bed. They crawl up your body and feed on your blood and will continue to live, breed and thrive in these places as long as they get a good supply of food.  Since they are so quiet and tiny, it becomes extremely difficult to spot them, and by the time you do realise you have a bed bug problem, the infestation will have become very severe.

Dealing with a Bed Bug Problem

When you realise there is a bed bug infestation in your home, your first reaction is to pull out the sheets from your bed and throw them in the wash. The next thing you do is head to the closest hardware store or supermarket and get a strong and effective bed bug spray. When you spray this on and under the mattress and the surrounding areas, you may find that there are fewer bed bugs there.

You would probably realise this because you don’t find yourself waking up in the middle of the night and scratching yourself from the bed bug bites. While you may feel that you have gotten rid of the pests, your exhilaration is sure to be short-lived. This is because bed bugs are extremely resilient creatures. We at Forensic Pest Control  have found that they have evolved amazingly well and developed immunity to a number of commonly used insecticides. And before long you find that they are back with a bang.

The other reason why it is very difficult to get rid of bed bugs is that they are miniature in size and have flat bodies. This gives them the ability to crawl into the tiniest of cracks and crevices. This means when you spray the insecticide in and around your bed, the spray doesn’t reach these bugs that are hiding. Eventually they crawl out and build colonies all over again and you find that the infestation is as strong as ever.
