Of all the pests that Chandler homeowners may face, bed bugs are among the most feared. Some pests move into a home for safety and security, while helping themselves to your food. Other pests are wood-destroying organisms and will seek to chew on your home for food or to build their nests.
Bed bugs are different. They are the most directly personal bugs that can come into your home. Bed bugs are not after your food, because you are their food. Bed bugs feed on blood and actually need it in order to breed. Because they like to feed on you, they tend to stay close to places you do. They especially love beds — hence their name — because they don’t have to go far to get at you. Bed bugs take up to 20 minutes to feed and thus prefer to feed on you as you sleep so that they don’t get disturbed. This is good for bed bugs but bad for you.
Don’t let bed bugs come into your home and feed on you. Ozone Pest Control understands the problems bed bugs bring into your home, and we want to be your Chandler pest control resource. Call us today, because we know how to get rid of bed bugs.
How Can I Be Sure That I Have Bed Bugs In My Home?
Given that bed bugs are serious business, here are some tips to help you better identify potential bed bug infestations:
- Bites: If you wake up with bites on exposed skin that you didn’t go to bed with, chances are that you have bed bugs.
- Blood stains: Bed bugs tend to leave blood spots behind when they feed. See blood spots on your sheets? Maybe you have bed bugs.
- Dark stains: Bed bugs leave droppings in the form of dark stains. You can most often find these between your mattress and box springs.
- Shells and eggs: Bed bugs tend to molt several times, and leave their shells behind. They also tend to lay eggs between your mattress and box springs.
- The culprits themselves: If you see a bed bug, understand that there are probably more of them. Many more. Bed bugs start breeding the moment they get inside your house.
