HERNANDO BED BUG TREATMENT
Bed Bug Treatment in Hernando, FL
Are you losing sleep over bed bugs? Over the past few years, bed bugs have been a growing problem across the United States and Florida is no exception. The Florida area has seen a large increase in the number of bed bug infestations recently. Increased domestic and international travel have contributed to the increasing number of bed bug cases.
Although bed bugs are a nuisance, they have not been shown to transmit disease. However, they can produce an allergic reaction for some people, which may cause swelling, itching, and irritation.
Bed bugs can feed and breed year round with the right conditions. They will usually hide during the day in cracks or crevices,such as couches, mattresses, and bed frames. Bed bugs can survive up to 2 months without feeding, and under certain conditions, up to a year.
To identify a bed bug, look for small reddish-brown insects that are oval in shape and approximately 5 to 10 mm long. After feeding, bed bugs will be swollen and dull red. Bed bug eggs are white and oval shaped, about 1mm long. You might also find brownish red stains where bed bugs have been. If you are unsure whether you have bed bugs, contact Kelly Pest Control for a professional bed bug inspection.
Depending on the degree of the infestation and one’s living conditions, different options may be used. Treatments are very intensive and may take several hours due to the habits of this insect. Bed bug treatments are not “DIY” treatments, as they require trained professionals to locate and treat the many areas these insects might hide. You generally do not need to remove or discard your mattresses. There are encasement options for mattresses and box springs that can prevent spreading and help eliminate infestations.
