Bed Bugs

Mainly active during the night, bed bugs feed on their host’s blood usually while they’re sleeping. They get their name since they can commonly be found in a bed, though they can be found just about anywhere in a home, such as in carpet, in couches and chairs, under furniture and where you store clothing.

Bed bugs are small, usually around four to five millimeters in length, and are a reddish color.

They leave small bite marks that can be itchy. These bites can also cause skin rashes and allergy symptoms. In the 1940′s, bed bugs were all but eradicated in the developed world, but have become more of a nuisance since the mid 1990′s due to increased travel in less developed parts of the world (they can be in luggage, backpacks and clothing), as well as the increased sales of used furniture, such as beds. They can even be brought into your home through your pets.

Bed bugs can be very difficult to get rid of on your own. Have peace of mind with our friendly & professional bed bug control service to help protect you and your family!
