Bed Bugs Can Be Tough To Kill
At the size of an apple seed bed bugs are a small parasitic insect that bite the exposed skin of sleeping humans and animals to feed on their blood that require professional extermination. Due to the small size of these parasites most people are unaware that they may have them in their home until they begin to notice the tell tale sign of the bed bug’s bites along on their skin.
Bed bug bites appear small red in size with a darker red center, typically cause itching, and appear in a cluster or line. Bed bugs can crawl as fast as a lady bug and and can easily transport themselves between floors or rooms. This makes eradication of these insects in multi-family housing, apartments, or hotels a necessity. These insects typically make their homes within mattresses, bed frames, bed springs, and in clutter on or around beds. They can also be found behind peeling wallpaper, in carpeted areas, and in furniture.
In the past many looked to professional pest control companies to kill off bed bugs using pesticides. However, current research shows that pesticides along have become ineffective as bed bugs have developed resistance to pesticides. This combined with their ability to multiply at a high rate have made eradicating bed bugs a tough task.
However, new technology and testing has determined that there is a better way to kill these harmful pests. Bio-One of Tucson exterminates bed bugs using a heat extermination process.
