PHOENIX PROPERTY MANAGEMENT DEALS WITH BED BUGS
Here I am today enjoying a restful day with my family on first day of this fine new year. Then, I received many texts from a tenant informing me that he has bed bugs. I received a few pictures of the little critters. This little critters continue to be a problem more and more. Nobody ever wants to have bed bugs.
What are bed bugs?
Bed bugs are small wingless insects that feed off the blog of warm blooded animals. It seems to me humans are the perfect meal for them. They prefer to hang out in your home. They like mattresses, sofas, couches, curtains and other areas of the home.
How does one get bed bugs?
This is an excellent question. My exterminator informed me that people who purchase furniture via Goodwill or off Craigslist purchase furniture with bed bugs. Then, they infiltrate the home searching for food. Bed bugs can survive for several months without food. You can obtain bed bugs from going to the movies. Be careful out there.
How do you know when you have bed bugs?
People wake up with tiny bites all over their body from bed bugs biting them to receive blood. It can take up to 9 days after a bed bug bites that the bites appear. The tend to bite in rows. Some people make develop skin infections.
What are the ways to remove bed bug infestation?
The only way I know how to remove a bed bug infestation it to call the pest control company to conduct a bed bug treatment. There are times they will need to do a follow call with treatment to ensure the bed bugs have been killed. Other ways to remove bed bugs include the following:
- Remove the clutter so they are unable to hide
- Throw away mattresses and all furniture and purchase new after bed bugs have been successfully killed
- Bed bugs die at 45 degrees Celsius good luck
- Seal up all cracks in home so they cannot hide
I believe bed bugs will continually be a problem as time continues. My good friend has developed an organic was to kill roaches and bed bugs which seems to be very effective. I do not wish anyone to have bed bugs. If you do, I hope this blogs helps you.
