Things to Remember About Professional Stalybridge Bed Bug Treatment

Bed bugs, which are also known as Cimex lactularius are small insects that suck blood from their human hosts. They live in small cracks and openings in and around the bed and normally come out at night to bite exposed skin and suck blood. While bed bugs are not known to transmit diseases, their mere presence is upsetting. For this reason, you should consult a Stalybridge bed bug treatment professional as soon as you suspect they have invaded your home.

About Bed Bugs
Bed BugPhysical Characteristics

An adult bedbug is oval in shape, flat and reddish brown in colour. It can grow up to 5 millimetres in length.

Breeding
The female bed bug will lay between 200 and 500 eggs in 60 days. The eggs which look like white specks stick to beddings and other surfaces. Because of their small size, it is hard to spot the eggs. It takes the trained eye of a professional bed bug control technician to spot and remove the eggs by way of bed bug fumigation. The eggs hatch into nymphs and into adults after 6 to 8 weeks.

Feeding
To be able to grow and mature, bed bugs feed on blood. However, an adult bed bug can survive for months without feeding. Because they are resilient, it is not easy to get rid of them. This is why you should hire a Stalybridge bed bug treatment company like Young's Pest Control.

Where to Find Bed Bugs
The fact that bed bugs are small, makes it possible for them to fit into cracks but impossible for them to be easily spotted. They usually prefer wood and fabric over metal and plastic. Little wonder, therefore, that they are mostly found on headboards and on mattresses. Only a bed bug control professional knows which Stalybridge bed bug treatment to use to exterminate the insects.
