Dealing with bed bugs
is never something Findlay residents
look forward to. If you are feeling a bit apprehensive and anxious, you should know these are normal emotions of a bed bug
victim. These emotions are contributed to the bed bug’s feeding habits. Bed bugs
feed on human blood that must be extracted from underneath the victim’s skin. To do this, the insect injects its feeding tube apparatus into the victim’s skin, just below the middle layer of skin or “dermis.”
Know What You Are Up Against
Most victims are not aware of what they are dealing with, even though the signs are right in front of their eyes. By the time, the signs present themselves, the infestation is so widespread, your options are already limited. This is why it pays to know the signs of a bed bug problem right from the get-go.
If you are able to identify the problem early on, you will be fully prepared to conduct a DIY inspection of your home. A thorough inspection can quickly reveal whether or not you are dealing with a full-blown bed bug infestation. The inspection will give you an indication of how widespread the infestation is within your home.
Of course, the problem will only get worse if left untreated for only a few weeks. Our Findlay pest control experts utilize cutting-edge technology, combined with our tried-and-tested inspection strategies to locate bed bugs.
Why Bed Bugs Are So Difficult To Find?
Bed bugs are some of the most difficult insect species to locate in a human habitat. One clue that has proven to be an effective inspection tool is the pest’s nest. Bed bugs do not build nests for their young, complicating things for the inspector. The female deposits her eggs in tiny gaps, cracks, holes, and crevices. In severely infested homes, bed bug eggs and larvae can be found hidden in carpet, mattresses, box springs, drapery, electronics, upholstery, and bed frames.
If you suspect, your home is infested with bed bugs, do not hesitate to reach out to our Findlay extermination team. Don’t wait to contact us because as was mentioned, the problem will only worsen over time.
Bed bug infestation will not go away on its own. There is a reason, your home is infested with these pests. If you do not eliminate the vulnerabilities related to your bed bug infestation, you are in a world of hurt. Unknowingly, you are providing bed bugs with these essentials of living – shelter, food, and water. So, why would they even consider leaving?
Know The Common Hiding Places
Staying one step ahead of bed bugs should be your number one goal. However, this will not even be remotely possible, without the knowledge of the insects’ favorite hiding places. Ask yourself, why did bed bugs infiltrate my home from the get-go. Bed bugs have one goal in mind besides finding a new host. This one thing is nothing other than a blood meal.
Our exterminators utilize their expertise when checking for bed bugs. Knowing the common hiding places – mattresses, pillowcases, sheets, baseboards, floorboards, carpet, box springs, mattresses, and bed frames – will keep you a step ahead of the bed bugs.
