What you need to know about bed bug extermination in Western Cape
Before we get to the reasons behind why you need to know about bed bug extermination, let’s look at a few facts about bed bugs to start with;
What a bed bug looks like
We know, it’s not a pleasant subject, but information is power, and our team of pest control specialists would like to give you all the power you need to identify bed bugs, before they become a serious infestation!
These pests are real-life, miniature, wingless blood-suckers, which are flat and oval. Despite the fact that there are quite a few species of these nasty pests, the one thing they have in common is that they target either warm-blooded animals, or us!
Due to this, bed bugs travel with their hosts, especially if the occupants of the home or a hotel travel often, carrying the bed-bugs from one bed to another, turning it into a global problem.
What happens if you don’t seek bed bug treatment from pest control specialists?
Considering that a single female bed bug lays approximately 250 eggs in her lifetime, which develop very quickly into fertile adults, within six to seven weeks, the bed bug infestation becomes really bad at an alarmingly rapid rate.
How to tell whether you have an infestation of bed bugs
As sneaky as mosquitoes, with bites that resemble that of a mosquito bite, becoming an itchy, red to whitish lump, bed bugs do the most damage at night, feasting on us unnoticed, until someone in the family has an allergic reaction to the bites, causing rashes which become extremely uncomfortable.
Despite the fact that adult bed bugs only reach 3-4mm, they can be seen with the naked eye, hiding in bedding, the folds and seams of mattresses, cracks in a bed frame, and even behind wallpaper.
They also like to make their home in any upholstery or furniture that is as close to the bed as possible, and if the infestation is really bad, they will leave tiny blood stains behind, fecal matter and a distinctly foul odor too.
These unpleasant facts are what make it essential to contact us at Pest Control Pros West Coast, to rid your home or business of these nasty pests that come with such health hazards for all.
