Why Choose Bed Bug Heat Treatments?◀ Back To Blog
February 23, 2016
We live in a trending type world. Fashions, fads, and ideas become the trend for a period of time and then fade away. There are some trends that fade and never return, and there are others that seem to disappear for a period of time only to surface again with more of a presence than before. Occasionally, there have been a few things that stick around, never seeming to become outdated. Unfortunately, this is the case with a little pest called the bed bug. Like it or not, bed bugs are more prevalent than ever before and show every indication of being here to stay.
This is due, in part, to the increased traveling activities of people vacationing both at home and abroad. There are many people that have a lack of knowledge of the bed bug’s activities and ease with which they “catch a ride home with you.” The ever present risk of bed bug infestation will always be anywhere that there are human activities. This includes motels, bus or train stations, airplanes, dormitories, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, apartment complexes, as well as the home of a friend or family member.
In addition to the lack of awareness of bed bug behavioral patterns, there is a lack of knowledge on how to search for and identify bed bugs and how to remove them. Bed bugs are nocturnal and very evasive. This small, flat oval shaped bug can hide in the tiniest of places. They burrow into the ribbing of the mattress, hide behind the headboard of your bed, crawl into the wall receptacle and behind the light switch cover among other places. They have even been known to get behind the wallpaper on the wall! To find them all is virtually impossible for the novice. If you discover that you have bed bugs, you should immediately contact a pest control specialists to eradicate these pests.
Pesticides are rapidly losing their effectiveness at treating bed bugs, creating the need to search for a more effective, environmentally safe treatment.
