“Getting rid of bed bugs in Chandler Az does not have to be difficult nor expensive.”
Less than ten years ago service calls for bed bugs were rare and practically non-existent. If fact of the few calls (1-4 a month) almost half were generated by other exterminators who had no experience with this pest and referred their customers to us. Today the demand for bed bug pest control Chandler Az services has never been greater in fact calls for service are up 30% over last year’s record pace.
Bed bugs are everywhere in Chandler. “Experts” attribute the increase of calls to more international travel to areas that were hotbeds of activity and the influx of immigrants from those areas. Growth in Chandler Arizona has brought more international travelers and immigrants taking up residence.
The average Chandler infestation (we see) is in a residential home where a guest or family member has visited bringing the critters with them. The introduction of used furniture and/or mattresses accounts for a large number of service calls. Consumers are advised to screen guests for previous exposure and carefully inspect used furniture.
Calls for service have come in from hospitals, retirement centers, theaters, bus companies, boat owners, hotels, resorts, semi tractor trailer trucks, and motels. Just about any place that people consistently sleep or rest between the hours or midnight and first light is a good nesting area for bedbugs.
Adult bedbugs are wingless, reddish brown, flattened, oval, 4-5 mm long and are fast runners. When in a hurry the can outrun most insects including German Cockroaches. They change color to a deep red-brown after a blood meal. Usually flattened from top to bottom, bedbugs will swell like a balloon while feeding on humans. Young bedbugs called “nymphs” look like adults only smaller and do not get any color until after their first blood meal.
Consumers are best served having a professional bed bug exterminator inspect for these insects. It’s not unheard of for our inspectors to respond to a call only to discover that it is another type of pest. Bed bugs come from a very large family of insects and to the untrained eye other types of beetles can appear similar.
Adults may live just shy of a year. Eggs can be difficult to see as they are clear colored and only 1mm in length. Bedbugs have short piercing sucking mouth parts that require them to feed in areas of humans with little or no hair. They pierce the skin, injecting an anti-coagulant then withdraw blood until full. It’s not uncommon for these critters to make 2-3 attempts at feeding when they encounter movement from sleeping humans. Adult bedbugs will feed every 5 to 10 days.
Bedbugs are often mistakenly associated with filth. They are attracted to exhaled carbon dioxide and body heat. They feed on blood, not dirt or waste. The sanitation of an environment does not affect bedbugs. Bedbugs have not been known to transmit any disease to humans; however, continued feeding on the same host can cause an allergic reaction to the bedbug saliva. The reaction is much like the reaction to a mosquito bite.
Bedbugs can infest a structure as stowaways on luggage, clothing, used furniture, bed frames, mattresses, etc. They can adhere to clothing and move from one location to another with ease. Once inside a structure bedbugs can travel from room to adjacent room (dormitory) or remain close to the food source. They typically nest is small clusters in bed frames, box springs, mattress, carpet, baseboards, in the dressers, closets, in picture frames, etc. In short, bedbugs can be found almost anywhere in a structure.
If a bedbug infestation is suspected a thorough inspection by your Bills Pest Control professional is essential. We can properly identify the invader and prescribe a custom service based upon your needs and the surrounding environment. Treatment of bedbugs can be a challenge even for the most experienced exterminator, they must be precies and completely thorough to ensure long term relief. In many circumstances more than one treatment is required for elimination.
