Understand These Ectoparasites
Bedbugs are one of the ectoparasites in Philadelphia. Once they’ve infiltrated your home, they’ll begin feeding on your blood. Although they can consume animal blood, they prefer human blood. They’re called bedbugs because they know how to hide exceptionally well in bedsheets, bed frames, and mattresses. Bedbugs are roughly 3/16ths of an inch and flat so they can easily hide and avoid detection.
Why Are Bedbugs Living In My Home?
Pest control experts agree that bedbugs are great hiders. Once they’ve entered your home in your luggage or on your clothes, they’re going to quickly take shelter. Their ability to hide exceptionally well makes them one of the most difficult pests to eradicate. Many recent bedbug outbreaks in Philadelphia were linked to elevated levels of domestic and international travel. Although bedbugs are problematic in residential dwellings, they create problems in apartments, motels, and hotels.
There is always a risk that bedbugs will enter the home when purchasing used items, including clothes and luggage. Some infestations occur when bedbugs travel from one apartment to another. Bedbugs can fit through the smallest cracks so they’ll likely have no trouble entering your home.
What Are The Dangerous Associated With Bedbugs?
Do bedbugs pose any health risks to humans? Unfortunately, they do. While they’ll feed on animals from time to time, they primarily target humans. Nevertheless, they shouldn’t scare you too much since they don’t transmit dangerous diseases. If you get bit by bedbugs, you likely won’t get sick but you may develop a red welt. It could be itchy.
What Is The Best Way To Eliminate Bedbugs?
One issue with bedbugs is the fact that they’re elusive so you need to look hard to find out where they’re hiding. Unfortunately, bedbugs are sometimes ignored by Philadelphia residents because they’re covert and don’t come out until the sun goes down. With our bedbug canine inspections, we can identify the problem quickly so it can be dealt with rapidly. After our bedbug extermination, we’ll visit your home again in 30 days or so. If the bugs have returned, we’ll treat your home again.
