Bed Bug Control
Like a scene from a horror movie, you wake up in the morning with bites on your arms, legs and stomach. How did they get there? Were you attacked in the night? The simple answer: Yes you were.
Though bed bugs can bite during the day, they’re mostly active at night. Despite their name, these flightless bugs are found in other parts of homes and can hide easily out of sight.
They’re not only found in homes but also businesses, including very public areas such as movie theaters. People have also encountered bed bugs on buses and other vehicles. If you have bed bugs lurking in your home or business, Worldwide Pest Control wants to help.
How to Identify Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are small in size, measuring about a quarter of an inch in length. They have flat, oval-shaped bodies and a rusty brown appearance. The adults are easy to spot, but the young are difficult to detect because of their size and translucent bodies.
The adults expand as they feed on blood. You may notice tiny red spots of blood on your sheets when you wake up. These red spots are the result of squashing the bugs with your arms and legs during the night.
Where to Find Bed Bugs at Home
Most people encounter bed bugs in their beds since it’s where they spend the most time during the night. However, these bugs don’t hang around in one spot. They hitchhike from place to place and spread out to other parts of your home. They’re found hiding in everything from carpets to couches. They’ll even hunker down along picture frames and baseboards.
What Problems Do Bed Bugs Cause?
Bed bugs cause massive problems not only for people in their homes but also for businesses across our service area. These bugs are great at hiding and can sneak inside suitcases and other items. They’re carried from place to place, infesting residences, businesses and vehicles along the way.
Though bed bugs aren’t known to transmit diseases, their bites can cause allergic reactions in some people. The bites are mostly painless as they happen but will leave behind small to large welts on your skin. If these bugs aren’t controlled in time, they will spread quickly and infest an entire home or business.
