Bed Bugs, just the name can make you itch, and believe us they make you itch! Only 15 years ago, bed bugs were just an insect you may have heard of, but now bedbugs are becoming a real problem for many homeowners. Even more worrisome is the fact that bedbugs are invading our hotels, planes, trains, dormitories, and apartment buildings. Adult bed bugs are about 3/16 inch long and reddish-brown with oval, flat bodies. They are sometimes mistaken for ticks. Signs of infestation include itchy welt-type bites usually found right next to each other in two’s and three’s. The host does not feel the bite while it is occurring. When they feed, they inject a secretion into the puncture to prevent clotting of the blood. Their saliva is what will cause your skin to itch and even become swollen. Bed bugs are not known to transmit any human blood-borne pathogens.
Our goal is to safely eradicate the bedbugs as quickly as possible and provide you and your family with the pest free environment you deserve. Are you beeing bugged? Contact us at FORDSHOMETOWN.COM
Beware of Pest Management Companies who have never treated for bed bugs. Their inexperience can prolong your infestation and make it harder to eradicate your problem.
Beware of furniture or mattresses placed out for “free” and carefully inspect all antique store and garage sale items before bringing them home.
