Bed bugs and holidays go together. It’s the season where many of us are traveling to visit family, friends or just getting away for a few days. Of all the gifts you bring home with you, the last one you want are bed bugs.
Bed bugs can hide in your luggage, cloths or tucked away in other packages you may be returning with. Pay attention to cracks, crevices, seams, and folds of material. Remember that bed bugs can be 1/16″ to 1/4″ and young, unfed bugs may be mostly translucent. If you find bed bugs, then you have to be careful in containing the infestation. The best thing to do is call professionals like Knockout Pest Control. If you do not find bed bugs, but still suspect there may be an infestation, Knockout can perform an inspection that will find them or give you the peace of mind knowing that you are in the clear.
Remember unlike lice, bed bugs do not live on people or animals. They come out, attach themselves to their host for a meal then go back into hiding. This makes them hard to find, but the red welt left behind is a sure telltale sign.
How you deal with bed bugs matters
The most important thing when eliminating bed bugs is to get all of them in all life stages. If not, another infestation may soon occur. Knockout’s bed bug canine detective will find these creatures in hiding. We can then eliminate them with Cryonite, an environmentally safe method that freezes the bed bugs, nymphs, even bed bug eggs.. Another safe bed bug elimination method for items like suitcases is by heating them in hot boxes.
