3 Common Habits Of Bed Bugs
The bed bug population was almost zero in the United States a few decades ago, but unfortunately, we only reached those numbers by using dangerous chemicals like DDT that caused more problems than they solved. Now bed bugs are making a comeback, especially with people who do a lot of traveling in other states and other countries. However, if you think you’ve brought along some unwelcome passengers and you now have Pikesville or Garrison bed bugs, you should contact Bugout, Inc.
Bugout Termite and Pest Control is an extermination service based out of Glen Burnie, a suburb located directly south of Baltimore. We’ve been in the business since 1988, and over the past 30 years we’ve helped clients all throughout the Baltimore metro area and the rest of central Maryland. Thanks to our experience, we know how Garrison bed bugs behave.
Common Habits Of Garrison Bed Bugs
1. Hide Until The Right Moment
Bed bugs are small, fragile, and have no wings. Because of this, their best defense is to hide out of sight until their prey goes to sleep. Once they sense that their target has stopped moving around, they crawl out of their hiding spaces and start feeding.
2. Hitchhike On Fabric
They don’t do it intentionally, but thanks to the way bed bugs look for warm and hidden spaces they will often end up on clothing or fabric luggage bags if you leave them on an infested bed. One of the most effective things you can do to stop bed bugs from infesting your home is to always keep your clothes in drawers instead of on the bed while you’re at a hotel and then washing and heat drying everything once you get home.
3. Don’t Leave A Mark
Many people may be dealing with Garrison bed bugs and not know it. This is because only a few people have an allergic reaction to bed bug bites and develop a rash or any other indication. Most people will only find out they have an infestation when they spot bed bugs or droppings under their mattresses.
That last fact can make identifying bed bug infestations difficult, which is why you should think about hiring Bugout, Inc. to perform an inspection and a bed bug removal if needed. You’ll be surprised just how fast things go once you put expert exterminators on the case.
