Bed Bug Control in Greenville and Surrounding Areas

Bedbug -_5Bed bugs are not too difficult to identify, but you should keep in mind they go through different phases during their lifespan, so appearances will vary somewhat. When they first hatch, they are so tiny and translucent they are almost invisible. Their color turns a reddish brown as they get older. Adult bed bugs can be seen quite easily with the naked eye. Titan Termite & Pest Control offers quality bed bug extermination services throughout residential and commercial locations in South Carolina.

Identifying bed bugs

One clue you have spotted a bed bug is the odor these bugs give off. They have a distinctive smell that is similar to that of rotting fruit. Bed bugs may be difficult to locate because they are nocturnal and hide in tiny crevices during the day. Clues there have been bed bugs in your bed or on your furniture include the small dark spots they leave behind and blood smears on fabric. The biggest indication that you have bed bugs is when you have numerous bites that itch intensely.

Bed bugs typically nest in groups in hidden areas. You may find them in the seams of your mattress, in furniture grooves, inside your purse, or hidden in clutter. They usually like to stay close to the host they feed on at night, and that is why they often nest near your bed. A professional pest control expert can usually locate a bed bug infestation pretty easily since they know where to look for hiding places.

Preventing bed bugs

Preventing bed bugs from entering your home in the first place is a recommended course of action. These bugs can hitch a ride on your belongings, so it is impossible to be 100% effective at avoiding them. Still, there are steps you can take to greatly reduce your risk.

Be extremely cautious when shopping for used clothing or used furniture. When possible, buy your household and personal items new, especially when it comes to bedding and mattresses. Also, remain vigilant when you are away from home. Bed bugs have been known to infest the finest hotels, department stores, and even movie theaters. Prevention involves doing what you can to keep from carrying the bugs home. Bug spray from the grocery store will do little to prevent an infestation, and it won't do much good in helping you combat the bugs once they move into your home. Bed bugs may not carry diseases, but they can make your life miserable by giving you ugly, itchy bites. The best line of defense against bed bugs is to work with a professional pest control company that can detect them early, and get rid of them for good. Contact Titan Termite & Pest Control today.
