What Do You Know About Bed Bug Infestations?

Bed bugs seem to be the pest with the worst stigma attached to them, and no one wants to admit they have an infestation. Even though their presence does not signify the cleanliness of the living conditions where they are found, they are unsettling nonetheless. Good Life Pest Solutions can help eradicate any pest infestations that you may have, including bed bugs. Let’s take a closer look at bed bugs, and you can determine whether you have these pesky critters living in your home.

Bed Bug Extermination

What Causes Infestations In The First Place?

One of the most common reasons you might find yourself with a bed bug infestation is that they can turn up in your home after you return from a trip, by getting into your belongings without you even knowing. They tend to travel around in crowded buildings, such as apartments and hotels and can follow visitors back to their houses via their personal items. These pests are difficult to eradicate, but the professionals at Good Life Pest Solutions have the training and expertise to rid your property of bed bugs.

Where Do Bedbugs Reside Within Your Home?

Just as their name indicates, these pests will find shelter and lay hundreds of eggs all around the place where you sleep. Their tiny bodies can hide in the cracks of mattresses, box springs, headboards, bed frames, or objects in or around a bed. But they can also be found near baseboards, under carpeting, under peeling paint, under light switch plates, or in upholstered furniture.

Appearance Of Bed Bug Bites And Their Bites

Bed bugs are flat, brownish insects, and are about the size of an apple seed. Bed bug bites may look similar to other insect bites, but there are some distinguishing characteristics. They are usually red and itchy, and in a line on your skin. These bites will also typically appear on the face, neck, shoulders, arms, and hands.

How To Keep Them Away

You may not realize that bird or bat habitats nearby could actually serve as a refuge for bed bugs. We can help you eliminate those as well. Good Life Pest Solutions offers bird control and bat control services to remove them from your home in a humane way. This may help you prevent a future bed bug infestation in your home.
