Dallas Fort Worth Bed Bugs Removal
There are some options when it comes to bed bugs removal and extermination. Preventative applications can be effective in getting rid of the bed bugs. A common misconception is that the bugs only live in the mattress. They actually hide out during the day in any cracks and crevices that they can squeeze into. They only come out at night when searching for a meal. Application of pesticides is an effective treatment option. The key to bed bugs removal is to prevent them from spreading. No items, including bedding and other items should be removed from an infested room without it being sealed in plastic. A combination of treatment as well as replacing disposable and moveable items (without transferring and bugs to a new area) is an effective approach to bed bugs removal. Once the items are removed, a room can be treated, and then new bedding and related items can be safely replaced.
Bed bugs can move quickly over floors, climb walls (and ceilings), and drop down on human hosts. They’re small, brownish, flattened insects that only feed on animals. Adult bed bugs are brown to reddish-brown, oval-shaped, flattened, and about 3/16 to 1/5 inch long. Since they are flat shaped, it’s easy for them to hid in cracks, crevices, and behind floorboards/molding. After an unfortunate meal of blood, their body becomes swollen and dark red.
Signs of a bed bug infestation
Bed bug infestations are easily recognized by rusty spots on mattresses, sheets, and walls. These spots can also be blood stains. Eggshells, shed skins, and fecal spots will usually be found around bed bug hiding places. A foul but sweet and musty odor will be evident when infestations are bad. Also a good indicator of bed bug infestations will be waking up with bed bug bites on your body.
Bedbugs will lay anywhere from 1 to 13 eggs per day. The eggs have a sticky substance that helps them stick to pretty much anything, even cracks and crevices. In 6 to 20 days the eggs will hatch, these hatched eggs are now called nymphs. These nymphs will immediate begin feeding; they need a blood meal in order to grow. It takes around 21 days for eggs to develop into adults and their lifespan usually lasts 12-19 months. Bed Bugs can actually live several months without food. If a bedbug infestation is not treated, 4 to 5 generations can occur each year.
