Bed Bug Identification & Treatment
Bed Bugs are blood-sucking insects that are very widespread in the US. Blood meals are necessary for their growth and reproduction. That is why they become established in places where they will easily and frequently have a blood meal. If you suspect you have bed bugs, look for indicators and call Patton Termite & Pest Control immediately.
Bed bugs are small, wingless bugs that are similar in size and shape to an apple seed when fully developed. In younger stages, they can be smaller and lighter in color. Otherwise, they range from brown to a dark brownish red. Sometimes people confuse bed bugs with ticks, but ticks won’t infest your home.
Tools to Prevent Bed Bugs
Bed Bug infestations are hard to treat. The best practice is prevention. When you travel, check hotel mattresses and keep luggage off the floor and furniture. At home, frequent vacuuming and insect-proof mattress covers are good deterrents.
