Biology

Habits

Bed bugs hide in cracks and crevices during the night and just like vampires they come out at night to feast on their human host. This blood meal can last from three to ten minutes with the host being unaware of the feeding until the bite becomes itchy and inflamed. Other hosts the bed bug enjoys feeding on are house pets, and birds.

Although the bed bug has been associated with over twenty-five diseases, transmission has not been proven. Bed bugs do not just go away; the only way to rid your home or business of these pests is hiring a pest control professional.

Control

Since 1988, bed bugs have been on the rise in major metropolitan areas, and are rapidly spreading to smaller rural areas. Bed bugs are very hard to manage as they have a very high reproductive potential, they seek out harborage areas that are unusual and hide there during the day.

The most effective way to detect bed bugs is through careful inspection of mattresses, box springs and other cracks and crevices throughout your home. Bed bugs can be eradicated with thorough applications of contact and residual insecticides to all cracks and crevices in your home. Furniture, mattresses and box springs, also should be lightly sprayed. However, bedding of infants should be replaced rather than treated.
