What Are Bed Bugs?
Bed Bugs are the number one pest affecting public health according to the EPA. These tiny creatures bite the skin of humans in order to feed on their blood, much like a mosquito. Bed bug bites are quite common, and despite being very itchy, they present more of an annoyance than anything. As far as we know, bed bugs don’t transmit any diseases. The prevalence of bed bugs across the US is most likely due to both an improved resistance to pesticide and a general lack of knowledge of the preventive measures needed to protect against these pests.
How to Find Bed Bugs
Many sources will tell you that the best way to find bed bugs is to check for bites on your skin, but this method is highly inaccurate because a bed bug bite can resemble anything from a rash to hives to any number of other insect bites. Instead, you should check your mattress and upholstery for visible signs, such as foul odor, dark colored spots, eggs, and the bed bugs themselves; visible excretion from the pests may range in color from red to black. In order to prevent an expensive treatment down the road, your goal should be to find the bugs early on and get rid of them as quickly as possible. By calling a professional pest control company right away, you can prevent the spread of beg bugs through your house and completely eliminate the problem.
How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs
Although there are do it yourself (DIY) bed bug removal methods, the safest, most effective way to get rid of bed bugs is to call a pest control company or exterminator. There are over 300 chemicals that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved to treat bed bugs, and every single one of them is dangerous to your health unless used correctly. Call the professionals at Albany Pest Control, and our trained exterminators will analyze your home, apartment, or building, and devise an appropriate strategy to remove the bugs as quickly as possible in a safe manner. Our primary concerns are your safety and satisfaction. Rest assured that we will completely eliminate the pest problem so you can get back to your life.
How to Prevent Bud Bugs
First, it’s important to be aware of the fact that bed bugs are fantastic travelers. They find ways to come with you in your luggage to wherever you go, which means that you could be inadvertently harboring these pests and transporting them to your home or apartment. Bed bugs can hide in luggage, clothes, beds, chairs, couches – really anywhere they can fit. In addition to their creative modes of transportation, bed bugs can live for up to 365 days without pulling a Dracula and sucking your blood. Below are some basic preventive measures you can take to minimize your chances of welcoming these pests into your home:
- Keep spaces clear – The more junk you have sitting around, the more places bed bugs have to hide.
- Vacuum weekly – Clean your place! Vacuum at least weekly to catch any pests that may have made it into your home.
- Buy high quality furniture – This does not mean expensive, but rather, furniture that’s in good shape and made of materials that will not rip or tear easily.
- Try a mattress cover – Special protective covers can be wrapped around your mattress to prevent any bugs from getting in.
- Be careful with used furniture – Used furniture is one of the most commons ways beg bugs are introduced into the home environment. Thoroughly check the furniture prior to taking it home.
