Bed bugs virtually disappeared from the list of household pests for decades, but conditions have changed to put these pests back on the most feared list for homeowners, apartment dwellers and hotel managers alike. For one, international travel has opened pathways for the insects to hitchhike from all over the world. Secondly, the bugs built up a resistance to the many of the pesticides used to eradicate them in the first place. At Triangle Wildlife Removal & Pest Control of Raleigh, we know that while these insects are not known to carry and transmit disease, they may be a serious nuisance, cause a rash or itchy skin and, in some cases, symptoms such as swelling and other allergic reactions. At 3/16 of an inch for an adult, and pin head size for newly hatched nymphs, the reddish brown bug may be hard to identify easily. Here are some indications of their presence:
Blood spots on mattress and/or linens
Discarded skin husks
Little red bite marks on skin
Prevention of an infestation may be difficult, as cleanliness has little to do with it. They typically enter a house on used furniture, people and pets.
PROTECTING GARNER, CARY AND OTHER NEARBY FAMILIES THROUGH EXTERMINATION
To get rid of the pests and control further problems, bed bug treatment may require a skilled exterminator who may effectively kill both live bugs and prevent future hatchlings. At Triangle, we use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to ensure thorough extermination of the infestation.
