Bed Bugs are pests that are increasingly becoming a problem in urban and rural areas. These miniature, reddish brown creatures are steady breeders and once they find a place where they can get a steady supply of human blood, they won’t leave the place. While these pests don’t really carry disease, their bites can irritate the skin, cause rashes and give you sleepless nights.
There have been cases wherein the bed bug menace has led to conditions like insomnia, depression and anxiety in people that have been unable to get rid of these pests from their property. We at Forensic Pest Control provide excellent bed bug control as part of our residential pest control solutions. Many people do try DIY methods of eliminating these pests, but bed bugs always manage to come back with a bang within the shortest time after you spray store- bought pesticides.
Bed bug facts
So why is it so difficult to get rid of bed bugs from your home? Here are some bed bug facts that will help you understand this better:
- Bed bugs have very flat and tiny bodies and are able to crawl into the tiniest of crevices
- While they are called bed bugs, they also make their home in areas around the bed and can live in mattress springs, the nightstand, as well as electronic devices that may be placed on the nightstand, such as alarm clocks etc
- They also live under carpets and in the folds of curtains
- They can easily make their home behind photo frames and peeling wall paper
- Bed bugs live in upholstered furniture as well.
- They are nocturnal creatures and crawl out of their hiding spots when you get into bed
- They are able to go without food for extended periods of time
- While these pests are flightless, they are able to move very adeptly from one place to the other in travel bags and suitcases. In fact this becomes one of the commonest ways in which bed bugs enter your home. They crawl into your bags when you are on vacation or a business trip and you inadvertently bring them home.
- They have developed immunity to a large number of pesticides and its why the sprays you buy from the stores are ineffective in killing these pests
