Bed bugs just happen to be a pest that every person hopes to never experience but unfortunately, we are always at risk. Bed bugs are so tiny and excellent travelers so regardless of how much you try to avoid them, you could encounter them at some point. If you have good reason to believe they just might be invading your home or business, it’s time to call in the experts. We encourage you to phone us if you have any questions at all and we might be able to help you determine if it is in fact bed bugs that you’re experiencing. Otherwise we can schedule an inspection to confirm the pest on your property and act accordingly regarding treatment.
Always act immediately if you have any suspicion at all of a bed bug presence. The longer you wait the more time they have to breed and further infest your property. They must be treated if you expect them to be gone. They do not leave on their own like some pests; they stick around as long as you let them.
Their name is fairly fitting however just because you’re getting bit at night by something doesn’t immediately mean you have bed bugs. Fleas and other insects can also bite (at night and during the day) so an inspection can help accurately identify the culprit in this instance.
If it is bed bugs you might be able to do your own inspection and discover signs of active bed bugs. Look over your mattress and box springs. Check the crevices and seams of your mattress, the box springs, the bed frame and all of your bedding. Now, bed bugs are nocturnal so if you expect to catch them in action you’ll want to do this at night. Just turn the lights off and use a flashlight to inspect along the areas we specified.
In addition to your bedding and frame, they might seek shelter behind your wall outlets, decor, curtains, and anything else near to your bed or in the bedroom. We have treated rooms that had bed bugs covering every nook and cranny of the space in the room including the furniture and curtains. Obviously you want to catch and treat them before this can happen. Therefore, even if you don’t currently have bed bugs, you can help lessen your risk for them by regularly inspecting your bedding.
They can be brought into your home in different ways including used furniture and by visitors, but many times you will be the one who unknowingly picks them up while you’re out and about somewhere else, then bring them home. If you travel regularly or visit public places often we recommend inspecting your home regularly for the presence of bed bugs. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. If you prefer you can let our Glendale bed bug inspectors come out and perform an inspection as often as you like.
