Bed Bugs are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. As a survival instinct, bed bugs are elusive. They prefer to hide in mattress crevices, box springs, baseboards, in picture frames, behind electrical switchplates, and even behind wallpaper. At nighttime, we exhale carbon dioxide, which often tempts them to come out of their hiding spots.
How We Remove Bed Bugs
If you have a bed bug problem, Central Coast Termite and Pest Control will perform an inspection of your home, examining common areas such as rugs, furniture, rugs, and more. Because of their small and flat bodies, they are able to hide in small cracks and crevices. Based on the assessment, we will provide a course of treatment depending on the severity of the problem. Not only will our treatment involve eliminating the bed bugs, we will recommend preventative measures, and offer follow-up inspections.
Keeping Bed Bugs Out
As with any pest, prevention methods are the best way to ensure that your home or office are clear of any problems. With bed bugs, they can come from anywhere, especially with any shared spaces such as hotels, airports, theaters, and more. Keeping personal belongings in higher places such as racks and your laps can help keep them away from holding on. Once home, you can inspect your belongings thoroughly with the help of a flashlight. When completed, washing clothes in their warmest setting can help prevent infestations. Even if you don’t plan on traveling or visiting these types of places, you can take preventative measures by avoiding second-hand furniture and inspecting your own belongings periodically.
