Unwelcome Visitors In Your Bed?

Unwelcome Visitors In Your Bed?

That is the question that you may be asking yourself.

Bed bugs are usually the size of an apple seed (4 to 5 mm long), have a flat reddish-brown appearance and only feed off blood. If the conditions are cool bed bugs can survive up to a year without a meal!

It is important to keep an eye out for their normal hiding places. They are often found in mattress seams, sheets, furniture, behind baseboards, as well as electrical outlet plates. Bed bugs also love hotels because it is easy to travel from room to room and hide within visitors luggage. You can come into contact and pick bed bugs up in stores, gyms and offices. Once they come indoors, they can become difficult to contain without the help of your Spartanburg exterminator at Douglas Pest Control.

It is important to catch bed bugs early. To help reduce the chances of bed bug infestation:

  • Keep your home clutter free.
  • Inspect furniture bought from second-hand stores before brining it inside your home.
  • Inspect your home after returning from trips or moving.
  • Wash your bed linens in hot water and dry on the hottest temperature setting.

 

Being proactive and early detection is crucial in preventing bed bugs from turning your home into theirs. Contact your Spartanburg exterminator today, Douglas Pest Control. Because if you Gotta Bug Call Doug.
