Ahh, bed bugs. Aren’t they just the worst? They show up out of the blue, uninvited, and think that they can sleep in your beds, feast off your blood, and never even have to pay rent. Since 2007 these nuisances have become an ever more common enemy of pest control in Utah. Homeowners and renters alike are united in their hatred of these bloodsucking demons, wishing there was some way to not “let the bed bugs bite.”
Fortunately, there’s Beeline! Utah’s Beeline Pest Control offers advanced and powerful methods for spotting bed bug infestations, getting rid of them once they arrive, and making sure they never show up at your door again.
But what exactly are bed bugs? And how do you know when it’s time to pick up the phone and get professional help with these little pains?
Although the rise in bed bug problems in Utah started less than a decade ago, bed bugs have been bothering people for thousands of years. They’re attracted to our breath and make their homes in small spaces like beds, couches and between floorboards. They’re tiny little critters, but you can still see them with the naked eye. They look a lot like ticks when they’re full of blood after a night of feeding, and you can even see their eggs and larvae if you look closely enough.
Bed bugs make their way into your home by hitching a ride on clothes or suitcases, and can even travel from one house to another in search of new hosts. Even if you keep your house spotlessly clean and totally hygienic, bed bugs might find their way to you— especially if they’re living in a nearby home and their unwitting hosts leave for a vacation. When bed bugs are suddenly left without food, they can become very crafty and will make their way to you.
If you think you might have an infestation, look for evidence on your mattress— you might see bed bugs or their eggs, or even small red streaks left behind from those who’ve filled up on blood. Gross. Remember, bed bugs are only about the size of a small apple seed. They might be very hard to spot, especially if they’re hiding somewhere other than your mattress.
Once you suspect that you might have bed bugs, or even if there aren’t any signs yet but your neighborhood is reporting infestations, call Beeline Pest Control Utah to knock out the problem before it happens or eliminate any of the little freeloaders before they invite all their friends. You shouldn’t attempt to take care of the problem yourself since home remedies like bug bombs have been proven by experts to be useless and even harmful to your family.
Leave it to the experts— let Beeline Pest Control spot an infestation, get rid of every last bed bug, and help you make sure that you never have to worry about pest control in the future.
