Although a bed bug infestation can be embarrassing, Scottsdale homeowners should not delay the call to a pest control company if they suspect an infestation with this pest. Bed bugs are a nuisance if they make it inside your home. They do not carry disease, however, many people experience an allergic reaction to their bites.
Bed bugs come out to play when they have an unfair advantage. Often, it’s during the wee hours of the night that bed bugs come out for a meal. Victims of the bite often do not realize anything happened until they wake up the next morning and the bites begin to itch.
That explains why treating bed bugs can be challenging. It is hard to find the pesky critter who hides well into the mattress, electrical outlets, headboards, sofas, and other dark areas. Professionals bring the right tools and equipment to the home to spot and treat bedbugs, eliminating further worry and concern for the household.
Problem With Bed Bugs?
Some of the signs that suggest a problem with bedbugs include:
– Blood spots on the mattress or bed covering
– Musty odor in the bedroom
– Discarded shells
– Red, itchy, large bites on the body
Exterminators have several bed bug treatment options available. The sooner you schedule service, the easier treating the infestation, regardless of the chosen treatment option.
Can’t I Treat Bed Bugs Myself?
It’s no secret that the local home improvement store sells several bed bug treatments at a cost considerably less than professional service. So why should you choose professional Scottsdale pest control instead?
Far too often those products sold over the counter provide inadequate results. Dealing with a bed bug problem is not something worth this risk.
