Cleaning the living room upholstery reveals the presence of bed bugs in the cushions. How did these vermin get into the house? Who can provide assistance with removing them?
Bed bugs have taken up residents in gymnasiums, office buildings, motels and retail stores. People transport bed bugs from one place to another without knowing. In the house, bed bugs inhabit anywhere a warm-bodied host sleeps. Pest removal specialists know the best techniques for locating and removing these vermin.
DO NOT DELAY
The presence of bed bugs is not an indication of how clean the house is at any given time. Clients should call our offices at the first sign of vermin in the house. Rapid intervention ensures that bed bugs are not allowed to move into bedrooms or pet areas. Bed bugs can lie dormant in couch cushions, carpets and other furnishings for a full year without ingesting blood from the host.
BED BUGS LEAVE DISTINCT SIGNS
A bed bug resembles an apple seed in shape, color and size. Case skins are left behind when the bed bug sheds the old skin during a growth cycle. Anywhere the bed bugs are living, the case skins will be present. In addition, black or brown stains on surfaces indicate that the bed bugs are feeding on a host. Pets can move bed bugs from their beds into the living areas in the home.
