Bed bugs, the pest that is becoming an epidemic, is a sneaky sucker. These pests tend to enter your home through luggage, furniture, or clothes. With the ability to go without feeding for up to 550 days, these pests can be difficult to exterminate. You may develop skin rashes & extreme itching from the feeding habits of these creatures. Bedbugs can move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings. Female bed bugs may lay hundreds of eggs over her lifetime. Seems scary, right?
What is a bed bug:
Bed Bugs are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. They start out as small as the ballpoint on a pen & are translucent until their first feeding. Bed Bugs prefer to lay their eggs on linens, however, they are extremely sticky, enabling them to be laid on nearly any surface. The eggs are similar to a sugar cube in appearance. Bed bugs are generally found in clusters, but due to mating habits, bed bugs can be found in nearly every crack and crevice around your middle Georgia home. A regular service can help deter a bed bug infestation, but is not guaranteed to control these parasitic creatures.
How do you know if you have bed bugs?
Bed bugs are known to cause skin rashes after feeding. They leave fecal matter behind which stains anywhere it is left behind. Bed bugs shed their skin after feeding, molting into the next stage of their development with 5 stages (instars) of development, which generally takes place within a 30 day period. Bed bugs may die prior to making it to the adult stage, which can be a clear indication of infestation.
