During the day, bed bugs hid in small crevices where people sleep, like mattresses, box springs, and bed frames. When night comes, they become active and feed on humans leaving clusters of red, irritating bumps. Bed bugs typically live for about 10 months, but a female can lay up to 500 eggs during that time!
Bed bugs are quite difficult to eradicate once they’ve infested your home. A lot of vacuuming and washing is required to rid your home of bed bugs effectively. Successful bed bug control is absolutely a job for a pest control company. Unfortunately, Advanced Wildlife & Pest Control does not offer any bed bug services. It is the only insect we do not handle. However, we can help direct you to other pest control companies we have connections with for your bed bug problem. Just give us a call at 262-242-4390.
Bed bugs are excellent hitchhikers that love to travel, and they can be picked up almost anywhere, including hotels, gyms, stores, movie theaters, etc. They can come into your home through suitcases, boxes, furniture, or even on you. It has nothing to do with the cleanliness of your home.
Yes! Bed bugs bite but do not transmit diseases. Their bites can be itchy and irritating. Bed bug feces and eggs left from females can also stain your bed and furniture. Once they have invaded your home, they are incredibly difficult to eradicate.
