Are you having trouble sleeping at night? Do you wake up in the morning to find itchy red welts on your face, neck, hands, or arms? You likely have a bed bug infestation. These pesky pests can find their way into even the cleanest of homes and are stubbornly hard to get rid of. At Amco Ranger Termite and Pest Solutions, we take the actions needed to eliminate them.
Bed Bug Problems In Your Home?
Bed bugs are tiny creatures that live in bedding, furniture, draperies, or other items in your home. They feed on the blood of humans and in some cases, pets. Quiet during the day, they tend to mostly come out at night in search of a meal. Their bite is generally painless at first and often you will not see them or even realize you have a problem until you wake up in the morning covered by the itchy red welts they leave behind.
In terms of appearance, bed bugs are small and flat, which makes them hard to spot. They are capable of hiding in even the tiniest of spaces. The Missouri Department of Health warns that if you can slide a credit card into a crack or crevice, there is plenty of room for an adult bed bug to live in. Travelers by nature, they can latch on to your belongings during vacations and visits to friend’s homes or gain entry to your house through items you purchase second hand. Places bed bugs are most likely to infest include:
- In the seams of your mattress, box spring, or bed frame;
- In pillows and bedding linens;
- In wood and upholstered furniture;
- In draperies, wallpaper, or around picture frames;
- Behind baseboards and in electrical switchplates.
Our Lake St. Louis Bed Bug Control Experts Quickly Identify Infestations
The tiny size of bed bugs makes them hard to spot by the average homeowner or renter. The best option is to use a flashlight and search for them at night when they are most active. Bed bugs go through several life stages. Their eggs are white or clear in color and newly hatched bed bugs are no bigger than a poppy seed. Even as full-fledged adults, they are no larger than an apple seed. Their small appearance and ability to hide works in their favor, allowing an infestation to grow for long periods unchecked. If you even suspect a bed bug problem in your home, your best bet is to call in our professionals at Amco Ranger.
As experienced Lake St. Louis bed bug control experts, we can quickly identify signs of infestations. These include:
- Small, brown specks in the seams of bedding or furniture, which could be either dead or living bed bugs;
- Finding white eggs or the sheer, shed skins they leave behind when they molt;
- Brown spots and smears, which may be blood left behind after a bite or bed bug fecal matter.
