Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs are typically 5mm in size, oval-shaped, and flat. When first hatched, bed bugs tend to be colorless until they “eat”. Hungry adult bed bugs are a mahogany to rusty-brown color, while full-appetite bed bugs are a reddish-brown color. This is after they have had a blood meal.
The CDC recommends heat treatment for bed bug control. Any Pest, Inc offers state of the art Convectex heat systems for the treatment and eradication of bed bugs. Our skilled team will set up and manage the heat system process from start to finish, ending with an entire cleanup of the affected rooms after the treatment is completed. Using a mattress cover will help prevent bed bugs from infesting your mattress and will also prolong the life of the mattress, itself. Mattress covers should be removed before heat treatment to allow the bed bugs to fall to the floor and be disposed of.
Bed Bugs Behavior, Diet & Habits
Bed bugs are world travelers, meaning they travel from one spot to the next, such as room-to-room in hotels or in guest’s suitcases, purses, or briefcases. However, don’t be fooled by their name. Bed bugs are not just in beds; they can be found in cracks, crevices, mattress seams, sheets, furniture, baseboards, box springs, headboards, electrical outlets, and picture frames. They can live various places, most often including hotels, hospitals, and public transportation.
Bed bugs’ diets consist of blood, but they can survive up to a year without a meal under cool conditions. Being more active at night, they feed on their host when their host is sleeping. They have a liking for 80% humidity.
Bed Bug Threats
Bed bug bites can sometimes be painless or extremely itchy. The bites appear as small red bumps on the skin and with increased scratching, can become larger red spots.
