Bed Bugs Infestation Signs and Control

Bed Bugs are many people's worst nightmare. Your bed should be a place to relax and get rest, and not worry about bugs and the harmful effects they bring along. Bed Bugs can infest and breed inside of a mattress and will come out at night to drink the blood of whatever mammal they can find. In most cases that is the person sleeping on the infested bed, but can also be the family pet. 
Bed Bug bites can be painful, itchy and very irritating. While annoying, bed bug bites are usually the first sign many people notice when an infestation begins as the bugs only surface during the night. Sometimes people will notice bugs in the bed or dead bugs around the house as well. 

Bed Bugs - A Misnomer?

Bed Bugs are best known for infesting beds, but in actuality, they can and will nest in many different areas of the house. They can make their home in paintings as well as the walls of homes. Commonly individuals will notice damage to electrical outlets when a bed bug problem manifests. Bed Bugs are easily exterminated but very resilient. It is best to contact a Lubbock pest control specialist quickly upon first signs of bed bugs in your home. 

Extermination Process

Bed Bugs can be treated with many common exterminator sprays. It is important for a pest control specialist to handle infestations though as if one is not thorough bed bugs can emerge with a resistance to common pesticides. A bed bug treatment will commonly last a few hours and involves the spraying and treatment of common pesticides. Once the treatment has been applied it is strongly recommended to wash all sheets and linens in the common areas that were affected by the infestation. Once treated the bed frame and box spring should be carefully examined and washed to fully clear the affected area of bed bugs.
