Unfortunately, these troublesome pests are good travelers, able to come into your home in many different ways, including:
Reports suggest that populations have been increasing since the 1990s. Although no one knows why, for sure, it’s likely that increased travel, nationally and globally, is contributing to their resurgence.
They’re small and reddish-brown with oval-shaped, flat bodies, easily confused with other kinds of bugs. They just a tad bigger than a tiny apple seed. If they’ve just eaten, they can look a little bloated.
Thermal Remediation® uses only high heat to kill bed bugs at every stage of their life cycle in just one treatment. There’s no chemical fumigation, so no toxins are left behind and you and your pets can return to your home right after treatment is completed. Heat treatment can penetrate even the smallest cracks and crevices.
After our bed bug experts confirm that these pests are in your home and locate their hiding places, we use the latest insecticide dust and residual contact treatments. As part of this thorough and effective bed bug control strategy, we provide an initial treatment, plus two more follow-up visits one and two weeks later.
These tiny pests are elusive, hardy, and always on the move. The cleanliness of a dwelling has nothing to do with attracting bed bugs or preventing them from getting in. Bed bugs have continued to adapt to human environments and can thrive in a wide range of temperature and many types of conditions.
Bed bugs will take any opportunity to hitch a ride into your home on luggage, furniture, and other soft goods such as clothing. When traveling, put a plastic trash bag or other protective covering on your luggage while you’re in a hotel and keep your suitcases off of the bed. Check hotel bedding, box springs and mattresses for tiny, pepper-like stains when you arrive, and thoroughly inspect all of your belongings before bringing them inside when you get home. Also inspect any used furniture or clothing you’ve acquired before you bring it inside.
Once indoors, these pests quickly spread from room to room in homes or hotels, traveling through pipes, on luggage and clothing, and even in vacuum cleaners. Because they can live for months without eating, they can be very difficult to control.
Definitely not! They can be found virtually anywhere, not only in soft goods such as beds and furniture, but also behind electrical outlets and in crevices along baseboards.
Bed bugs do not transmit diseases to humans, but their bites can cause itchy welts that may become infected if scratched.
