Bed Bugs Control and Treatment
Bed bugs get their name from spending most of their time around beds, i.e. mattresses, box springs, and normally within 8 to 10 feet around the bed area, but they can also hide in other places like behind picture frames, under floorboards, or behind light switches. Bed bugs are relatively small, flat, and reddish-brown in color, and are only about three-sixteenths (3/16) of an inch in length. Bed bugs are considered a pest (parasite) because they feed on human blood, or the blood of small animals and birds. They can, live up to one year without feeding. Even if your house is clean, bed bugs can enter the home via used furniture, luggage, or other items from an infested zone. Consulting us, the Bed Bug Experts in Edmonton, is the first step in getting rid of your pest problem!
Early Bed Bug Detection
The detection of bed bugs can be tricky and a complex process, and the ability to detect these bed bugs during the early stages of an infestation when only a few bugs are present is very important. With the help from 780 Pest’s certified detection technique, the accuracy of early detection of those pesky bed bugs increases to a 90-95% accuracy over a 40% accuracy from a regular visual inspection from a normal technician. If pest control tech is able to find out directly where the bed bugs are located, they can decrease the area that needs to be treated.
Signs of Bed Bugs
Detecting that you have bed bugs in your house is not always as simple as you might think. Research shows that about one in every twenty five people will show a reaction to a bite from a bed bug, so learning to keep an eye out for these signs of a bed bug infestation are important. Small spots of dried blood on or around the bed, or tiny black dots that resemble the look of pepper are among the signs that bed bugs are present and have been feeding. Their bites sometimes appear in a streak of three-four bites close together anywhere on the body. These bites will create tiny red welts and will be extremely itchy, and could eventually even blister.
