Eliminate Bed Bugs Now: The Barrier Pest Control Way
Bed bugs: the mere mention of them sends shivers down the spine of many. But fear not, for we at Barrier Pest Control are here to help you understand these pesky invaders and guide you on how to get rid of them once and for all.
Understanding Bed Bugs
The Real versus the Playful
Remember those fun plastic bed bugs from that childhood game? The ones that would bounce around, evoking laughter and excitement? Ah, memories! Today, however, our focus is on the real ones, not those delightful playthings of yesteryears.
Recognizing The Culprits
Unlike their plastic counterparts, real bed bugs aren’t meant to be part of a fun game. They’re reddish-brown, have a flat appearance, and are reminiscent of apple seeds. Their eggs? Tiny and white, resembling pinheads. Nymphs can be almost translucent, especially if they haven’t had their fill recently. These critters have an unsettling resilience, sometimes surviving for over a year without feeding. It’s this very tenacity that makes them a formidable foe.
Debunking Bed Bug Myths
Every Home is At Risk
The idea that bed bugs only infest dirty homes is a myth. They are indiscriminate travelers. Whether it’s through infested items or from unsuspecting travelers, they find their way in. Even plush establishments, like NYC’s Ritz-Carlton, aren’t spared.
How They Enter
Someone might bring bugs or eggs from other infested places on their clothing or luggage.
Furniture, clothing, or even backpacks could be carriers.
They can travel through ducts or false ceilings if neighboring areas are infested.
Sometimes, bats or birds might be the culprits.
They’re also increasingly found during air travel.
While they might feed on pets, these bugs prefer human hosts, ensuring they don’t spread via our furry friends.
Signs of Bed Bug Infestation
If you’re waking up to unexplained rashes or bites, it’s time to inspect:
Look for rusty or reddish stains on your bed sheets or mattresses.
These are bed bug droppings. They might even bleed on the fabric.
Eggshells & Eggs:
Tiny and pale yellow in appearance.
Live Bed Bugs:
The most undeniable sign of all.
They might venture out to sofas, curtains, and even electrical outlets in severe infestations.
Barrier Pest Control to The Rescue
Reducing clutter, vacuuming often, and using protective mattress covers can minimize infestation risks. When staying at hotels, inspect the surroundings, including luggage racks. Always be cautious with second-hand furniture.
