Bed Bug Treatment In Seattle
There has been a battle going on for quite a while now, and it seems to have gotten worse instead of better. The problem is bed bug infestation, and it needs to be addressed effectively. There are many places that advertise being able to get rid of bed bugs, but the fact of the matter is, the problem remains. When you’re looking for Seattle bed bug exterminators, Crime Scene Cleaners are really the only choice, if you want them gone for good. There are really only very limited methods of getting rid of these nasty pests that actually work. They are incredibly resilient and there are many things you can do to get rid of some of them, but in order to get rid of them completely you need professionals.
Equal Opportunity Parasites
Many people think bed bugs only infest dirty places, but this just isn’t the truth. They can and do live practically anywhere, and are definitely an equal opportunity parasite. Since they feed on human blood and have no preference in blood type, they do not differentiate between people who keep an immaculate home, and those who may have a filthy one. The only difference related to this in any way, is that there are more places for them to hide in a home with lots of clutter, than in one neatly organized. People who are infested often unknowingly carry them from place to place, as they attach themselves to clothing, purses, backpacks and bags. They hide so well in these seams and tiny cracks and crevices, you may never see them until it’s too late. They multiply very quickly, as well. The fact of the matter is, bed bugs are a serious problem that if not addressed right away, will get completely out of control. Even a minor infestation is a serious problem that requires a thorough removal process. But absolutely anyone can get bed bugs, it does not matter whether you keep a clean house or not. Bed bugs are not picky.
Resilient And Elusive
One of the biggest challenges is how resilient they are, as well as how elusive. They cannot be exterminated in the usual manner we get rid of bugs. They hide deep in areas of your home that chemicals don’t penetrate, and all it takes is a couple of them to survive for the problem to remain. These nasty bugs feed on human blood, and can survive for months without eating again after getting their fill. Bed bugs usually live within 8 feet of where you sleep. They fill up in about 10 minutes, and it typically lasts them for 5-10 days. They are attracted to the carbon dioxide in the air you breathe out, and are mostly nocturnal but not exclusively so.
Bed Bug Bites
These human blood-sucking parasites usually feed at night, and they come equipped with a numbing agent so that you don’t even feel it when they’re biting you. This is so they can feed and get away without being detected, making them even more elusive. Bed bug bites are often found in groups of three or more, and if you’re sensitive to them they might be itchy, red and swollen. Some people, however, get bitten and show no signs, so that is not an accurate way to tell if you have these terrible pests. People including scientists who have studied them for decades cannot accurately tell a bed bug bite from a flea bite, or a mosquito bite, for that matter. Though they are not known to carry other diseases or pose any serious health risks, some people are more sensitive to their bites than others. When you need the best bed bug treatment Seattle has to offer, call Crime Scene Cleaners and have the professionals handle your situation for good.
Other Bed Bug Facts
After feeding, bed bugs go into hiding for 5-10 days, while they digest their food, mate and lay eggs. A female bed bug can lay up to 200 eggs in her lifetime. They can last several months without a blood meal, when necessary, and they are true survivalists, building up resistance to chemicals that may have terminated them previously. They hide well, often taking up residence behind wallpaper or electrical wall sockets, as well as in box springs and any other seams or tiny crevices. Bed bugs are highly resourceful, and like dark, moist places as a rule. But they have survived for centuries, and have become even more prevalent in homes everywhere, especially since the early 2000’s. Their saliva acts as an anesthetic and also increases blood flow to the site of injection during feeding.
