Bed Bugs – No Laughing Matter…
Ok, here is a little humor, but really, BUGS THAT SUCK YOUR BLOOD WHILE YOU SLEEP?! That sounds like a real nightmare. Nobody wants bed bugs under any circumstances, so how did you get them, you ask? Well, bed bugs are really, really good hitchhikers and so the reality is you, or someone in your household brought them in. They may have been hiding in furniture, boxed possessions, or even on your shoes. Another possibility is that you or someone in the home visited a location that was infested – most often a motel/hotel or even a nursing home or movie theater – we have seen all of these places infested with bed bugs.
Fine, so you want to just get rid of the little bloodsuckers! And there is the problem – bed bugs have adapted to living with humans for many, many years, even centuries. They know where to hide, how to survive up to a year without a meal (blood, right?), and where to find you (sleeping, unbeknownst to you, in your comfortable bed). Yes, we are a pest control company, and we make money treating these disgusting creatures, but the truth is, there is very little you can do on your own to rid yourself of these pests. There is no “magic bullet” that will totally eliminate them. It takes knowledge, training, and a variety of products and techniques to have any chance of success. We have been attending seminars and training sessions for years, and the story at the end of the day is always the same: perseverance, hard work, and techniques developed by treating hundreds of different homes and businesses with bed bug problems.
One key to success, however, is identifying the problem early, and getting treatment immediately. Waiting or trying to treat the problem yourself will only result in sleepless nights, a growing infestation, and continued bed bug bites. So, to coin a phrase, DON’T LET THE BED BUGS BITE – give us a call as soon as you suspect a problem! (By the way – inspections are always free). Your health, happiness, and peace of mind deserve it!
