Professional Denton Bed Bug Treatment
When bed bugs are discovered, most people want to eliminate them quickly. Once they’ve established themselves in your home, bed bugs can spread quickly, requiring increasingly aggressive control measures. Bed bugs don’t discriminate; they can be found anywhere people live and work. This includes homes, dormitories, hotels, motels, apartments, schools, hospitals, offices, shopping centres - and the list goes on and on. Bed bugs can be difficult to identify, but if you know which signs to look for, you can begin bed bug control methods before the problem spreads. Note that while you may be tempted to try bed bug removal methods yourself, it's best to have a professional do the job.
What do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Adult bed bugs are approximately 1/4 inch long and are reddish to dark brown in colour. They are about the thickness of a credit card, which makes it easy for them to hide in tiny crevices. They don’t have wings, but move very quickly, and can spread out throughout a space like cockroaches.
Common Behaviour of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs feed on blood, and they feed at night. Bed bugs bites can leave red, itchy welts that may cause allergic reactions. While they prefer to feed on humans, they will also bite other animals, such as dogs, cats, and even birds. They can survive for months at a time without a meal. This means they can continue to live in a home even when the occupants are away, or if the house is unoccupied and awaiting sale. Bed bugs infest new homes by “hitch-hiking” in clothing, suitcases, or furniture. Bed bugs are attracted to humans’ body heat and the carbon dioxide they exhale.
