How Does Your Exterminator Check For Bed Bugs?
Most exterminators utilize a cheat sheet to search for bed bugs in homes. Our Baltimore exterminators take a different approach to bed bug inspections. Instead of relying on cheat sheets, we know the bed bug’s favorite hiding places, which are in close proximity to the human host. Bed bugs are not nocturnal insects but they do exhibit nocturnal behaviors in many cases. The insect tends to do the exact opposite of its host. For example, the host sleeps during the day and works at night. The bed bug sleeps during the day and stays awake at night to discretely feed without fear of detection. When we initiate a bed bug inspection, we immediately head to the host’s bedroom. Bed bugs want to stay close to their host because they need to feed at least every other day. The insect will burrow deep in cracks, crevices, and gaps in bed frames, furniture, and décor. They also hide in bed linen, mattresses, and box springs. We utilize flashlights and magnifying glasses to locate and identify bed bugs. And, we are not successful, we call in the canine experts. We utilized bed bug sniffing canines when our search attempts are unsuccessful. Bed bug sniffing canines have been trained to find bed bugs in all kinds of situations. Bed bugs are tiny insects that rarely grow larger than seven millimeters in length. Their tiny body is the shape and color of an apple seed. Immediately following a meal, the insect’s abdomen becomes engorged in blood. We offer visual bed bug inspections for free of charge to all Baltimore consumers. We also offer free consultations and quotes for our pest management services. We approach each bed bug case with an open mind and confidence that we can eradicate the problem in a timely manner. Our professional pest management includes an initial inspection, two treatment visits, and a post-treatment inspection to determine the effectiveness of the treatment.
