BED BUG CONTROL
WHY DO I HAVE A BED BUG PROBLEM?
Bed bugs live and breed wherever there are people. In order to move to a new location, bed bugs hitchhike, crawling onto a person’s clothing or onto their personal belongings. Bed bugs can also be introduced into homes in used furniture, mattresses, and box springs. Bed bugs are prolific pests. Just one female produces about 345 eggs during her lifespan. Bed bugs are considered so problematic because just a couple of pregnant females that are accidentally introduced into a home can quickly become an infestation of hundreds to thousands.
WHERE WILL I FIND BED BUGS?
Bed bugs are mainly found living inside, which is why they are able to remain active year-round. Their indoor lifestyle allows them to thrive in almost any temperature-controlled environment where people are present. Homes, apartments, hotels, apartment buildings, health care facilities, dormitories, shelters, schools, movie theaters, laundry facilities, office buildings, shopping centers, and airports are all common places that bed bugs call home.
Inside homes, bed bugs initially take up residence where people sleep - in the seams of mattresses and box springs. If the infestation is allowed to develop and continue, they will travel throughout your home through walls and floors. Other common bed bug hiding spots include behind wooden door and window trim, in upholstered furniture, in electronics, in keyboards, and in wall voids behind outlets.
