Bedbug Control & Extermination in Visalia


Controlling and Exterminating Bedbugs in Visalia

Reports of bed bugs infestation have recently flooded the media. These blood-sucking insects are a major problem in the U.S. While bed bugs are not strictly nocturnal, they will schedule their activity opposite of your schedule. Therefore, bed bugs may go unnoticed unless obvious symptoms are present. Signs of bed bug infestations include blood spots on bed, bed bug shell casings, and small bites on skin.


Diagnosing for bed bugs is extremely difficult since they hide in the smallest crevices, particularly seams of mattresses hence their name. Since most signs are subtle, a professional bed bug inspection is needed to determine if a bed bug problem exists. We provide several bed bug treatment options that have been proven to be effective.


DIET

Bed bugs can feed on the blood of any warm-blooded animal. Their most common targets are humans because, unlike animals with fur, we have a lot of exposed skin for them to bite.


HABITAT

Bed Bugs are typically found in beds and small cracks and crevices.


IMPACT

When Bed bugs feed, they inject the skin with their saliva (this keeps the blood from clotting) and an anesthetic (this keeps the host from feeling the bite and moving). Bed bugs do not spread disease, but their bites can become red, itchy welts.


PREVENTION

Don’t take mattresses or padded furniture that has been left at the curb or on the street.

Check your bed sheets for blood spots. Keep your suitcases covered in plastic and off the floor when you travel. When you travel, take a small flashlight to help you look for bed bugs. When you return from a trip, wash all of your clothes – even those that have not been worn – in hot water to ensure that any bed bugs that may have made it that far are not placed into your drawers/closet. Bed bugs are hard to see, so if you think you have bed bugs, call a pest management professional.
