Bed Bug Removal & Control
Who doesn’t enjoy a great night’s sleep? Slipping under clean and soft sheets, turning on your favorite nighttime TV show or reading a great novel is perfect.
But for many, an excellent night’s sleep doesn’t happen, and for several reasons, insomnia for one, but have you thought about bed bugs?
Bed bugs are indeed a nuisance and, if left untreated, can lead to a significant problem, as bed bug removal is crucial. Not only do they make that perfect night’s sleep uncomfortable, but the bites also are not fun and certainly irritating. In addition, they are highly invasive as they take up residency in your bed or elsewhere.
So, where do you start if you suspect you have bed bugs? First, identification is critical, followed by the proper treatment methods to remove them entirely and stop them from returning.
Because bed bug removal can be challenging, we have good news: Green Valley Wildlife Solutions can offer safe and effective treatments.
What Are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are tiny, brown oval-shaped insects that feed off of the blood of animals or humans. When they feed, their bodies swell up and turn red. Most infestations occur when females lay their eggs, resulting in an abundance of them, all requiring blood to survive.
Bed bugs do not fly but do crawl. They are super fast, enabling them to reach their mate quickly, resulting in quick reproduction periods. Unfortunately, their newly reproduced eggs can be the size of a speck of dust, making it challenging to see them.
Have you recently noticed tiny bug bits? Nymphs which are immature bed bugs may have settled in your bed, furniture, rug or other spaces. They are looking for a place to feed; you have become their source.
Bed bugs do not transmit diseases, but their bites can result in mild to severe allergic reactions.
If you suspect you have bed bugs, bed bug removal is vital and it’s time to take immediate action.
Oh What A Nuisance
The Signs of Bed Bugs
Are you finding tiny red itchy spots on your body, perhaps more below your knees? Have you been to a medical practitioner and have yet to learn what this is from?
You may have a bed bug infestation. If you are finding red itchy spots below the knees, on your calves and feet, your carpet may be infested. If on your entire body, they can be in your bed, on your furniture and elsewhere. See below for a few signs you may have a bed bug infestation.
- Bed bug sacks, fecal matter, or skin shedding.
- Bloodstains on sheets.
- Rusty or black-colored waste on sheets, mattresses, or walls.
- A musty odor from the bed bugs’ scent glands.
