Bed Bug infestations are on the rise in the United States. This pest problem that was once considered under control is becoming one of the fastest growing reasons for calls to pest control companies today. Bed Bugs feed on the blood of humans and other animals. They are often transported on such things as luggage, boxes, and even clothing and shoes. As their name suggests Bed Bugs are most often found along the seams of a mattress and behind the headboard of a bed feeding on occupants as they sleep. After feeding a female Bed Bug can lay up to 500 eggs during her lifespan.
Due to the extensive preparations needed, identification is the first step in controlling a bed bug infestation. Once this insect has been properly identified, a pest control operator will give a series of instructions for isolating the infestation allowing for more successful treatments.
Because Bed Bugs are known to live in such places as behind wallpaper and picture frames, in upholstered furniture, on clothing, draperies and even behind wood trim and electrical outlets, the treatment of an infestation must be intentional and thorough. Treatment by a professional pest control operator is therefore highly recommended.
