Bug Treatment

Be sure to get treatment before your bed bug nuisance spreads.

Bed bug infestations are a severe problem for property owners in St. Louis and Mid-Missouri. A single bed bug in your home or office can soon turn into an infestation, causing stress, insomnia, job disruptions, higher costs, and lost productivity. Bed bugs proliferate quickly, so getting rid of them as soon as possible is critical.

Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed solely on human blood. They are members of the cimicid family. The most well-known bed bug is Cimex lectularius. It favors human blood to the parasites that it feeds on. Warm dwellings, especially close to or within beds or bedding, are Cimex lectularius’ favorite environment. The term “bed bug” comes from this. Although bed bugs tend to be active only at night, they can also be found in other areas. They are often unnoticed and feed on the hosts they inhabit.

Bed bugs are tiny, flat insects with no wings and six legs. You can find them hiding in crevices or cracks within eight feet of areas where people sleep. They are small and able to find if you’re aware of what to look out for. The young bed bugs have a translucent light yellow color. However, the mature ones are darker and can become more darkened after feeding. It is best to search for bed bugs during their mealtimes. This is typically between 2 and 5 in the morning.

Bed bugs have been regarded as human parasites for thousands of years. In the 1940s, they were on the verge of extinction. However, because to the development of pesticide resistance, their incidence has increased since 1995. Increased human habitat infestation has also resulted in an increase in bed bug bites and other related issues. These tiny, blood-sucking insects have the potential to harm public health and the well-being of people of all socioeconomic strata. They are easily transportable and have quickly become a problem in a variety of home and commercial settings. Bed bugs can swiftly proliferate and move to other locations if left untreated or improperly treated by homeowners. In multi-family dwellings, they can move through walls and electrical outlets to reach nearby homes.

Bed bugs: what to look for

The presence of a black substance on pillows is indicative of a bed insect infestation. The feces of bedbugs is the source of this black residue, which resembles black marker dots. On lighter-colored bedding, they will stand out more.

Another clue that they’re present is the red bumps on the skin that they leave after biting. These marks resemble mosquito bites in appearance, but the biting pattern is distinct. Bed bugs bite in a linear manner most of the time. Bed bug bites can be a lot itchier and last longer than mosquito ones. Bed bugs aren’t thought to be a health or medical risk. Their itchy bites, on the other hand, can induce serious allergies and necessitate rapid medical intervention.

They are pesky and despicable pests that can be found all year round. This has made bed bugs a bigger problem in the St Charles region. These pests are very difficult to find, can be itinerant, and are usually nocturnal. They are often found in areas of sleep and feed on people.

There are several signs and symptoms of bed bugs that people should be aware of:

  • Itchy, red bumps or a skin rash may occur within the first to nine days following bites.
  • Straight lines are where bites occur
  • It is possible to have no reaction on the skin
  • Your sheets and mattress may have dark spots or black marks.
  • Carpet or bed carpet with marked shells
  • There are blood spots in sheets that you might have rolled over after a pest ate.

Bedding Bugs

  • Bed frame joints or mattress seams can cause small cracks
  • Wood and fabric
  • Under the mattress, or near the headboard.
  • In carpet edges, smoke alarms, and back of the mirrors.

Tips to Avoid Bed Bugs While Traveling

Traveling bed bugs can be found almost anywhere. They've been progressively increasing since 2000 as a result of human travel.

 

It's critical to be mindful of the danger of bed bugs after returning from a trip. Following your return, all garments must be removed and dried in the dryer for at least 20 minutes. Other belongings, such as luggage, should be removed and placed in plastic bags. To prevent bed bugs from spreading throughout your home, all items that may have been easily accessible to them should be eliminated.

 

Here is some advice for avoiding bed bugs when traveling:

  • When you go to your room, put your bag in a well-lit location, such as the bathroom or kitchen. Bed bugs are less likely to be found in these rooms. If at all possible, keep all of your clothes in your suitcase and not in the drawers.
  • Once you have settled into your bedroom, the first thing to do is check for bed bugs. These bugs are usually round and brown and can be between 2 and 4 millimeters long. You will likely find shells and dark areas where bugs used to be. You should start with the bed, but make sure to check all areas.
  • Bedbugs might be difficult to detect, but that doesn't imply they don't exist. If you are bitten by bedbugs, you will notice small red pimples on your skin. These marks are commonly observed in straight lines, however they can appear in a variety of locations. These indications could signal that your clothes or other personal items are in danger.
  • Stowaway insects can still be found, regardless of whether you have been bitten. They can often be found in clothing or luggage seams, and they are easy to find when they travel. Before bringing these items back to your house, make sure you inspect them. You should leave these objects outside until they're clean.
  • You should immediately separate clothing if you suspect bed bugs may have come in contact. Even if the clothing has never been worn, it should go in the dryer. This should be done for approximately twenty minutes.
