Bedbugs are unwanted visitors to your bed. They are small, flat bugs that feed on blood to survive.
Bedbugs do not have nests like ants or bees but tend to live in groups in hiding places. Their initial hiding places are typically in mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and headboards where they have easy access to people to bite in the night; hence, the reason they are called bedbugs.
At the turn of the 20th century, bedbugs were a real issue; however, around the mid-1900s, improvements were made to insecticides that kept these pests at bay.
Unfortunately, bedbugs have evolved and become more resilient than ever. To prevent or exterminate bedbugs, it’s essential to recognize their tell-tale signs early on and use an integrated, multi-step method to remove them.
We can help! At ACME Pest Control, our certified agents will identify the problem and work to eliminate it with our Bedbug Inspection and Removal!
By the way, bedbugs look for one thing—blood. They can hide in luggage, fabrics, furniture, etc. Therefore, if you have them in your home, it is not a sign that your house isn’t clean enough or that you need to hire a full-time maid. The truth is bedbugs can be found in immaculate homes and hotel rooms just as often as in filthy ones.
