BED BUGS IN LAS VEGAS
Do you suspect you might have a problem with bed bugs in your home? Bed bugs are a parasite that feed exclusively on human blood and have plagued humanity for thousands of years. Bed bug bites can cause rashes, psychological effects, and allergic symptoms. Swat Bug Killer Technicians in Las Vegas are trained to inspect for issues regarding bed bugs and to use the proper chemicals to get rid of them. One of the most common places to find bed bugs is in the bedroom.
HOW TO INSPECT FOR BED BUGS IN THE BEDROOM
Bed bugs are flat, oval shaped with a reddish- brown color about the size of an apple seed. In the bedroom they are commonly found on the underside of the box spring, in crevices such as the plastic found in the corners and around seams and tags. They also tend to hide on the back of the headboard, again in cracks, seams, around tags and in crevices. Inspect sheets and mattresses for rusty brown spots that are caused when bed bugs are crushed. A heavily infested room will have a strong moldy odor like a wet towel. Bed bugs are not just in the bedroom, they can also be found in your couches.
HOW TO INSPECT FOR BED BUGS IN COUCHES
Bed bugs do prefer to feed at night while we are in our beds but they will readily feed during the day and can also be found in upholstered furniture in living spaces such as couches. To inspect your couch for bedbugs remove your pillows and cushions, checking for the tell-tale reddish brown stains and tiny blood drops and fecal matter. Pay close attention to tufts, buttons, crevices, corners and tags where these pests love to hide. Make sure to be thorough and inspect the bottom and back of the couches. Bed bugs are not just in upholstered furniture, they can be found in many places around the home.
OTHER PLACES BED BUGS HIDE
Bed bugs can be found in obscure places such as in electrical receptacles and appliances, drawer joints and behind paintings and loose wallpaper. Don’t forget to check your closet as they cling to clothes and this is their primary mode of travel, allowing them to spread rapidly. They can also be hiding in suitcases, shoes, baseboards and even cars. Bed bugs can be found virtually anywhere in the home and unless you have a heavy infestation you may not be able to find them.
Bed bugs are primarily found in or around mattresses, box springs and surrounding bedroom furniture. They can also be found in couches, closets, appliances, shoes and numerous other places.
