Few infestations are as upsetting (or as challenging to eliminate) as a bed bug infestation. Once in a home, these pests multiply and spread quickly. Many people are surprised to learn that far from being confined to mattresses, bed bugs often live in furniture, carpets, appliances, power outlets, light fixtures, baseboards, picture frames, and even vehicles. The first signs of bed bugs are often either the blistering caused by bed bug bites or the occurrence of small spots of red or brown fecal matter on mattresses or upholstery. Getting rid of bed bugs is not a do-it-yourself job.
The first step to combating bed bugs is a thorough inspection. An Extermco Pest Control professional will determine where the bed bugs are hiding using visual inspection and specialized tools. Your professional will then implement a treatment plan tailored to your situation and discuss ways in which you can reduce or eliminate the risk of a future bed bug infestation. Whether it’s eliminating an infestation from an entire apartment complex or eliminating an infestation in a single room, Extermco can get it done.
Facts about bed bugs
Bed bugs are notoriously hardy pests able to survive months without food in extreme conditions while still being able to reproduce and move.
Foggers don't work
Because bed bugs are both hardy and live in tight, cloistered spaces and fabrics, insect foggers do little if anything to reduce bed bug populations.
Feeding simultaneously, a large colony of 47,000 bed bugs could completely drain an adult of his or her blood in less than 10 minutes.
