Surf trip description:

If you suspect that you may have an infestation of bed bugs, here are some things to expect, and why you should hire a professional company to exterminate bed bugs in St. Louis, MO.

Preventative Care

The first step is to prevent bed bugs. When traveling, keep suitcases up off the ground, remove the mattress covers and inspect the corners for small rust colored spots, and smell for a damp, musty odor. When you return home immediately wash your clothing.

If you have bed bugs you should take your clothes straight out of the dryer and put them on immediately before you leave the house to avoid spreading them. Do not visit someone who has bed bugs until they have completely eradicated them, and do not allow them to come to your home. Be cautious with used furniture. If your job requires you to visit other people’s houses frequently you should change your clothes before you enter your house.

Signs to Look For

If you think you have a bed bug problem some signs to look for are:

  • Bites -Bites will resemble itchy, flat, red welts. Bites can be in zigzag lines, straight lines, or in small clusters.
  • Nocturnal Activity -Bed bugs are most active at night. Pay attention to whether you have more bites when you wake up than when you went to bed.
  • Spots and Shells -Look for small rust colored spots near the corners and edges of the bed. They will also molt, so look for old exoskeletons.
  • Smell -Bed bugs release pheromones that smell like an old wet towel. It smells damp, or musty.
  • Other areas -Bed bugs do not limit themselves to the bed alone. Check upholstered furniture, clothes in the closet, and the edges of the carpet.
  • Bugs -Bed bugs are shaped like a flat oval and are brown or reddish brown. Newly hatched bed bugs are clear and become darker as they age.

Why You Should Hire a Professional

If you suspect your home has an infestation of bed bugs you should call a professional company right away. Giving the bed bugs more time to multiply and spread will only cost more money and more headaches if you leave the problem unattended. Trying to use pesticides on your own can be expensive, time consuming, and potentially dangerous. Some companies now offer heat treatment methods, avoiding the use for pesticides entirely.

It is important to get qualified help from a company that offers the extermination of bed bugs in St. Louis, MO. An adult bed beg can live for over a year without feeding. Making sure the bed bugs are officially gone will give you invaluable peace of mind.
