The parasitic bed bug cannot survive more than 200 days without a living host. The tiny reddish/black insect species grows up to 7 millimeters in controlled environments. To avoid detection in the human living space, the bed bug exhibits nocturnal behavior, feeding when its host is asleep. This is common behavior among the species, even if the host is a day sleeper.
Bed Bug Bite Allergic Reaction
Bed bug bites oftentimes cause an immune response. The victim’s immune system identifies bed bug saliva as an allergen, resulting in an allergic reaction. The immune response is to protect the victim from what the immune system identifies as a life-threatening allergen.
Allergic reactions associated with bed bug bites include redness, edema (swelling), itchiness, and less often, a tiny pustule. Bed bugs do not spread diseases to humans or animals through bites
Bed Bug Management Strategies
Managing the bed bug population requires a group effort, with local pest control companies, property owners, landlords, and businesses. Bed bug infestation has resulted in thousands of dollars in residential and commercial damages. The damage is related to infested mattresses, box springs, carpeting, luggage, clothing, and bed linen. While it is possible to save some of these items with a full laundry cycle, bed bug feces, dried blood, and exoskeletons make it impossible to spare others.
Our bed bug control consists of eco-friendly and conventional treatments. The insects are highly known to hide deep inside the tiniest crevice to avoid detection. Since it may take several weeks or months to validate a bed bug problem, your bed bugs have longer to do more damage.
Our professional bed bug control strategies are customed to ensure cost-efficiency and the highest level of effectiveness.
Bed Bug Prevention Strategies
Bed bug prevention begins when you leave your home behind to visit friends, family members, and old acquaintances in other states. It is not unusual for travelers to book their overnight accommodations in roadside inns, motels, and bed & breakfasts. These establishments report thousands of bed bug sightings by guests and employees, as well as infestations each year. This is just one reason why it is crucial to be on the lookout for bed bugs when traveling.
Conducting visual inspections of a motel room before moving your luggage and personal accessories in is a great place to start. Since bed bugs are drawn to mattresses, bed linen, and box springs, these are the first items to inspection. Carefully inspect the bed linen for signs of bed bugs. If no signs are detected, you should move the inspection to the mattress. To access the mattress, you will need to remove the bed linen from the bed. Be careful not to spread the bed bugs into other areas of the hotel.
You can also protect yourself from becoming a bed bug victim by completing the following tasks:
- Visually inspect the room before and after entering
- Inspect your personal assets upon arrival and before exiting the last time
- Know the signs of a bed bug problem
- Put all machine-washable items through a full laundry cycle on the maximum temperature setting
