We can provide you with the peace of mind that your Central Florida home is free of bed bugs.
The idea of having a bed bug infestation can be very unnerving. A common misconception is that bed bugs are only present in filthy environments; however, they can be present anywhere. Bed bugs are small and can easily travel by clinging to clothes or material. They also populate very quickly, causing an infestation to occur sooner than expected. Many people have heard of bed bugs, but may not be able to identify one. They are small, reddish-brown bugs with a flat body and six legs.
Bed bugs are attracted to moisture and heat, so minimizing this environment inside your home is key to avoiding issues with these bugs. It is important for you to be observant and call us at the first signs of bed bugs in your home. Since they populate so rapidly, you don’t want to waste time in having your home inspected and treated. A few signs that may indicate the presence of bed bugs include:
- Rust colored spots on sheets or material (left by fecal matter)
- Unexplained itching or noticeable welts
- Finding skins that may have been shed
Bed bugs are excellent at hiding in small, dark crevices and can be found anywhere in your home, not just on or around beds. Since they stay hidden and are so small, about the length of a grain of rice, it often takes a professional inspection to locate and exterminate them. At Waters Pest Control, we can provide you with the peace of mind that your Central Florida home is free of unwanted bed bugs by performing thorough and expert inspections. Even if you don’t suspect a bed bug infestation, it’s important to have routine inspections in order to keep your home safe, clean, and pest free.
