Bedbugs

Please consult the  Preparation Guide Lines for the Control of Bedbugs BEFORE treatment date.

Bedbugs are a mahogany to rusty brown; red after a blood meal. Flat and oval, 1/4-inch. As their name implies, bedbugs like to live and feed in beds. They can also live behind baseboards, wallpaper, upholstery and in furniture crevices. They like to travel and will hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes.

They do not transmit diseases but a number of health effects may occur due to bed bugs including skin rashes, psychological effects and allergic symptoms. Diagnosis involves both finding bed bugs and the occurrence of compatible symptoms. Treatment is otherwise symptomatic.

Bedbugs feed primarily on humans, although bedbugs can dine on any warm-blooded animal. Vacuum suitcases after returning from a vacation. Check bed sheets for tell-tale blood spots. Bedbugs are elusive creatures, so calling a professional when you suspect an infestation is the wisest solution.
