Is Your Bed Pest Free?

Feb 3, 2019

There could be pests in your home that you can’t even see and you may not notice until they have infested your living space.

It’s so small you can barely see it with the naked eye.

It thrives in dark, warm places and nests in the soft, comfortable folds of fabric and furniture.

It can cause skin rashes, allergic reactions and even psychological effects.

It can survive in temperatures as cold as 14 degrees or as hot a 110 degrees.

A female adult can generate as many as 500 eggs in her life span.

For thousands of years, they have lived on human blood and their population has increased dramatically in the last 30 years.*

It is known as the human parasite and there is even a haunting chant whispered to children to warn of these tiny, blood-sucking creatures…

“Good night. Sleep tight. Don’t let the bed bugs bite.

The last thing you want to think about when you are climbing into your warm bed or curling up on the couch with a soft blanket is if there are minuscule blood-sucking parasites waiting for their next meal.

Bed bugs, bed-bugs or bedbugs, anyway you write it, they aren’t welcome in your home.

Getting rid of bedbugs isn’t as easy as turning on a no vacancy sign and washing the sheets.

Resilience to pesticides and rapid reproduction can signal an infestation before you notice there is a problem.
