Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite!
Ah, that age-old bedtime expression! But what if there were a modern spin that made it less of a nursery rhyme and more of a proactive step towards a bedbug-free life? Join us as we embark on a journey through the mysterious world of these pesky critters and, more importantly, how Barrier Pest Control is your knight in shining armor.
A Quick Dive into Bedbug History
The Age-Old Saying: The phrase ‘good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bedbugs bite’ originates in the late 1880s. Why, you might ask? Maybe it was a humorous way of acknowledging a very real nuisance. To give it a modern-day touch, think of it like this: “Good night, sleep tight! You double-checked that second-hand sofa, right?”
The Shift in Times: Fast forward to the 21st century. Bedbugs are no longer a simply laughable nuisance; they are real and more prevalent than ever. In a decade, we’ve seen the Boise area transform from almost zero bedbug inquiries to receiving them daily!
Spotting the Uninvited Guests
Now, I’m all about recycling and reducing waste, but there’s a slight hitch regarding second-hand furniture. During a recent inspection, I visited a lovely couple’s home who suspected a bedbug invasion in their daughter’s room. First stop? A picture frame with suspicious discolorations. Second stop? An upholstered headboard, which, on closer inspection, was practically throwing a bedbug party! And the culprit? Used furniture from a thrift store.
My Piece of Advice: Second-hand treasures are fantastic, but always inspect them, especially if their origins are mysterious. And if you’re ever in doubt, who are you gonna call? Barrier Pest Control!
