Many people dread the possibility of getting bed bugs more than anything else. Bed bugs are, to put it very lightly, no fun at all. Once they get in, they can be very difficult to get out and the bed bug treatment process is nothing if not long drawn out and hugely extensive. Bed bug treatments must often involve the entirety of your home, from your bedding to everything in your closets to your carpet. The extensiveness of bed bug treatments can make it difficult to fully eradicate them, and many people who find themselves the victims of bed bugs must struggle with them for long periods of time before they are fully gone from the home. As bed bugs are known to spread easily, it is important for homes infected by bed bugs to take steps to eradicate them as soon as they are noticed.
Bed bug removal and bed bug treatments are often best handled by professional exterminators with exterminating services. Bed bug treatments can sometimes involve the use of chemicals, which can all too easily become dangerous when handled by someone who is not experienced with them. Fortunately (and unfortunately all at once, as it means that bed bugs are prevalent), the majority of exterminators have extensive experience in dealing with bed bug treatments and the eradication of bed bugs from a home. In fact, more than ninety nine percent of all exterminators or pest professionals, as they are sometimes called, have seen and treated at least one case of bed bugs in the past year – and many have treated significantly more cases than that. The majority of bed bug cases – around ninety three percent – are seen in single family homes. However, bed bugs can infest apartments and hotel rooms as well, so it is important to be cautious of them in whatever lodgings you may acquire while on a trip or vacation. Keep an eye out for the tell tale signs of bed bugs in order to avoid bringing them back home as unwanted guests into your own home.
And bed bugs and bed bug treatments are not the only pest that exterminators must treat in the typical American home. Termites are also unfortunately common and, like bed bugs, can be difficult to completely get rid of without the help of a professional intervention. They are a bug with an extensive history, dating back to one hundred and thirty million years ago. There are currently around forty five species of termite found in the United States alone, with more than two thousand species of termite present in the world at large. If you suspect that your home has an infestation of termites, it is recommended to get a professional termite inspected conducted. If termites are in fact present, termite control and eradication can be undergone by an exterminator or a pest professional.
But it doesn’t stop there. Cockroaches have also become problematic in many a household in all parts of the United States, with more than four thousand varieties of cockroach throughout the world. They are particularly hardy insects, as they are cold blooded. This means that they are able to survive as long as a full month without a food source and can live for a week without water. Cockroaches are insidious, meaning that there are always more than there initially appear to be.
For all of your pest and insect infestation problems, it is recommended that a professional exterminator or pest professional be hired. Hiring a professional helps to ensure the total eradication of the pest from your home in as safe a manner as is possible. From bed bug treatments to termite extermination, pest professionals can truly do it all.
