When it comes to bed bugs, there is not a single insect more deserving of the title “pest.” Bed bugs are among the most difficult challenges facing the pest-control industry today.
For years, parents would put their children to bed and recite the rhyme: "Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite". But they never expected to find actual bed bugs in their kids' beds. Aside from pest professionals, most people had never seen a bed bug let alone had a bed bug infestation. Today we all know if you have bed bugs in your house, the only thing on your mind is getting rid of them as quickly as possible.
How To Inspect
When inspecting an area, you may find only one bed bug. Bed bugs can exist singly, but more often than not you will find multiple bugs, as they tend to congregate once they establish themselves in an area. This is why it is important to learn how to properly identify a bed bug, that way controlling the pest may become easier down the line, since you know what you are dealing with. Identifying the issue can ease the burden of finding the right way to control the pests and help you find the correct plan to eradicate the bugs.
Sprays work great to instantly kill the bed bugs, but that may not end the problem. For that, protector sets for your mattresses are recommended to help ensure these pests do not return. Bed Bugs are extremely difficult to get rid of, so contacting a professional service is highly recommended.
A little information about fleas...
Fleas are parasites that feed on the blood of any warm-blooded body. The most common species is the cat flea, which often feasts on cats, dogs and humans. Fleas can live for about 100 days during which time the females produce 400-500 offspring.
Fleas transport themselves on rodents and other mammals, and usually remain on their hosts at all times. These pests use their powerful legs to jump as high as 8" vertically, which is 150 times their own height. If humans could do this, we would be able to leap over skyscrapers.
Rid Your Home of Fleas
Looking to get rid of fleas in the home? Homeowners should clean and vacuum frequently to help remove flea populations and prevent the laying of eggs. It's also necessary to keep the lawn groomed to avoid rodent habitation. Pet owners should practice active flea management by keeping dogs on a leash when outside, bathing and grooming pets regularly, visiting a veterinarian annually, and using flea treatments according to direction. If you suspect a flea infestation, it is important to hire a flea control professional to rid your home of rodents and fleas.
