Avoid the “Beauties” of Nature Inside

Glenview, Illinois is an area rich in the beauties of nature where wildlife abounds plentifully in the surrounding animal preserves. While it’s lovely to explore nature outside, no one wants the “beauties” of nature inside, especially if that “nature” is bed bugs. First, they’re not that beautiful and second, they are one of the most aggravating and difficult to remove pests out there.

A big problem in a short time

If you bring a single bed bug home, maybe after traveling or introducing a piece of used furniture into your home where one is hiding, you could have a terrible infestation within only a few months. A female lays 5-7 eggs per week and when those bugs start laying 5-7 per week and so on, you could have hundreds upon hundreds within a several months…all feeding on you while you sleep.

Bed bugs hide during the day so often the problem doesn’t seem as bad since it’s hard to see them. Since they are photophobic (afraid of light) and prefer to move during the night, you might be unaware of the problem, until the itching starts. Some people can be highly allergic to the bites, resulting in a nasty rash and blisters. If you suspect a bed bug infestation, don’t delay and call a professional!
