A bed bug infestation can be a nightmare for home or business owners. Bed bugs can be difficult to detect, live in well-hidden areas, and a pain to eliminate. If you suspect that you have a bed bug infestation, consult the professionals at Edmonton Exterminators Ltd. We offer bed bug control services in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, and St. Albert. We are highly trained and skilled in dealing with bed bugs and are knowledgeable in techniques for removing them from homes, offices, hotels, and more.
How to Identify Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are flat, oval in shape, and relatively small in size (about 4-5 mm long). They are dark brown or black in colour but can appear red or brownish-red after a meal. They often appear on mattress seams, sheets, or furniture, and feed on the blood of living animals and people. They can reproduce rapidly thereby appearing in large numbers within a short span of time. Their bites are often very itchy, sometimes causing a burning sensation on the skin.
How to Tell If You Have a Bed Bug Infestation?
If you wake up one morning and find that you are covered in patches of small red bites, you could possibly have a bed bug infestation. They are usually found in hotels, offices, gyms, and movie theaters. They crawl onto clothes and suitcases, which provide them with transportation to people’s beds and homes. Signs of an infestation include seeing one or multiple bed bugs, black or brown stains on your bedsheets, or casings left behind from shedding.
What to Do If You Have Bed Bugs?
If you travel often, there are several steps you can take to try to prevent a bed bug infestation. If it’s already too late for prevention, it’s important for you to understand that a bed bug infestation can be a very serious issue. Due to their ability to stay well-hidden, reproduce in large quantities, and live for long periods of time with or without feasting, they can be hard to get rid of. Here are some steps you can take to try to get rid of bed bugs:
Pesticide-impregnated mattress covers
Clean your house and clothing
Do not change where you sleep or throw items away
Call a pest control company
