Looking for bedbug removal in Phoenix? We’re here to help.
While these small, blood-sucking insects are sometimes associated with dingy motels, the truth is anyone can get a bedbug infestation—even from a 5-star hotel. In fact, according to a National Pest Management Association survey, one in five Americans reported having had a bedbug infestation or knowing someone who has encountered bedbugs at home or in a hotel.
If you’re facing a bedbug infestation, the best solution is to contact a pest control professional. Bedbugs are notoriously difficult to control on your own. Do-it-yourself bedbug removal can be expensive and is often ineffective as the bedbugs are accidentally reintroduced back into your home during and after treatment. Our bedbug field experts have the experience, specialized equipment, and professional-grade products to get rid of your bedbugs for good.
Bedbugs infiltrate your home by hitching a ride inside on clothes, luggage, old furniture, or boxes. Because these tiny pests are hard to spot, they often go undetected until the infestation reaches a sizable population. Signs of a bedbug infestation include itchy bites and small rust- or brown-colored stains on sheets or mattresses from crushed bedbugs that have ingested blood.
You can prevent bedbugs from entering your home by inspecting furniture before bringing it inside, washing second-hand clothing before putting it away, and using a quality mattress cover. Since bedbugs are often picked up while traveling, be sure to inspect your hotel room thoroughly. Lift up the corners of the sheets to inspect the mattress for bedbugs or small rust- or brown-colored stains. Do not unpack your clothing into drawers, and keep your luggage on a hard surface instead of a bed or upholstery. If you do find yourself with bedbugs in your home, contact a professional pest control expert as quickly as possible to stop the infestation from spreading.
Bedbugs are not known to spread diseases to humans. However, their bites can leave behind itchy, red welts which can become infected from scratching.
Bedbugs are difficult to treat because infestations often become well-established before people notice that they have a problem. These tiny bugs are hard to spot and very good at hiding. Plus, they’re often found in other areas besides the bed. Bedbugs are hardy insects that don’t respond to typical pest control treatments. They can live for several months without eating and can withstand a wide range of temperatures from nearly freezing to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. A bedbug-removal professional will use specialized tools and processes to eliminate bedbugs from your home.
When traveling, carefully inspect your bed for signs of bedbug activity and avoid laying your clothing on upholstered surfaces. Keep your luggage on a hard surface and don’t unpack your clothes into drawers since they could be infested with bedbugs from a previous occupant. When returning from a trip, inspect your luggage and wash all clothing before putting it away—both worn and unworn items. You can also prevent bedbugs from coming into your home by carefully checking furniture and boxes before bringing them inside.
