It’s something a homeowner or a renter never wants to hear…that they have bedbugs and have to find the best way to get rid of the infestation. It’s definitely scary to know that these little bugs have been crawling around in your homes and rooms without your knowledge, especially without knowing how long the population of bedbugs has been growing. Hearing you have a bedbug infestation may not be the easiest thing to hear, and many times it isn’t your fault, but the way the property has been made itself. Many people do not know how to look for bedbugs, which makes it hard to catch infestations on time before they grow out of control.
Bedbugs are round, brownish oval little creatures that live on the feeding of human or animal blood. Something which makes it even more frightening is that they usually live within cracks of your mattresses and sometimes could easily just be spotted on your wooden headboards. They are about the size of an apple seed; this makes it easy to recognize a bedbug, as they are not parasitic insects. However, after bedbugs have fed on their host, their body begins to swell and turns to a blood-red colour.
You may have heard that bedbugs only hide within your mattresses or beds but that’s not true; they hide in the places you use the most. They can commonly live in the kitchen or even kitchen cabinets. Bedbugs also usually begin to grow populations in your luggage or even the couch you use on a daily basis. It can be hard to hear, but it is important you recognize the dangers of these little creatures and how infestations can start anywhere in your home or apartment. Bedbugs usually feed on humans during the night when they are asleep, it helps them stay unnoticed and usually feed for about 10 minutes.
If you need bed bug control, bed bug exterminators, or bed bug heat treatment in the GTA, make sure to contact Thermagone to ask about the benefits of using their “One Visit & Done” Heat Treatment which kills 100% of bedbugs and their eggs.
