How they avoid detection

Bed bug infestations often continue for long periods of time without exposure and there are a few reasons for this. First of all, they are small. An adult bed bug is no bigger than an apple seed and their eggs are the size of a speck of dust. Second, they hide very well. Most people do not take the time to examine under mattresses, along baseboards or the undersides of furniture. Bed bugs hide until nighttime. They actually have C02 sensors that can detect when you are sleeping. Finally, bed bug bites are often confused with other bites or rashes. Because the reaction from person to person varies, not every bite will look the same. One sign is that bed bugs bite in clusters so if you find bites in small clusters on your skin, you could be dealing with a bed bug infestation.

Bed bug prevention tips

If you frequently travel, you will want to develop good habits when staying at hotels. Before even bringing your luggage inside, it’s important to inspect the room. Using a flashlight (the one on your cell phone works great), lift up the mattress and examine for little dark brown insects and fecal trails. Looking along the wall, inside the nightstand, along the bedframe and even behind the picture frames are good places to look for bed bugs. Even then, if you suspect you were bitten at night, check the sheets for blood marks the bed bugs leave behind after a meal. Leaving your suitcase on a metal stand or even in the bathtub will prevent bed bugs from sneaking inside for a ride home with you.

Don’t be caught unaware

Bed bug bites are itchy and uncomfortable for several days after a bite. However, as they feed on humans at night, these bites are painless and their hosts continue to sleep peacefully. That is due to a chemical in bed bug saliva that acts as a numbing agent. It isn’t until later when that wears off that your body produces a negative, itchy reaction to the bed bug bite and saliva. If you discover a bed bug infestation in your home, you do not want to live a second more with this. To finally get a good night’s sleep again, call us today for the most effective Bartlett bed bug control around.

Understanding the Seasons

Weather has a profound effect on pest life cycle. Most pests, rodents and insects breed aggressively during spring and go through periods of hibernation during autumn and winter.

When the weather slowly begins to heat up, pests start to get more active after having stayed dormant over the colder winter months.

  • Birds often start to find mates and start building their nests.
  • Moths which consumer leaves usually become active again.
  • Flies often emerge from their winter hibernation places and start to breed and spread out.
  • Squirrels also spend the winter in hibernation. When spring approaches these creatures start looking for a new home. This is usually the time when they make their way into lofts and other spaces.

Summer is arguably the best season for pests. It is the time when they are in full swing and breed as rapidly as they can. Wasps are one of the most common summer pests followed by flies and rodents. Many a summer picnics and BBQs have been ruined by the ‘home invasion’ of these pests.

  • Wasps build their nesting grounds and lay their eggs during this time. Although the creatures are not directly harmful, they can be very aggressive and territorial at this time of the year, because they’re at their strongest.
  • The number of fleas also multiplies. Since pets spend more time outdoors during summer, they are more likely to bring the pests back indoors with them.
  • Bees are also more active during summer as they go out to gather nectar. Many times, homeowners find a new beehive in their garden and require pest control to take care of it. Because of their sting, bees are more dangerous than some of the other pests and you should call our professional service to get rid of them.
  • Moths and flies usually start to multiply significantly during summer.
  • Ants begin to swarm to find new mates and start new colonies during summer.
  • Cockroaches become very noticeable in the summer, especially in the kitchen and toilets. This is due to the hotter temperatures and stronger smells.
  • Bedbugs are also very active in the summer.

Autumn is the month when things start to get cooler. The number of pests starts to dwindle as they begin to slow down their breeding activities.

  • Wasps start becoming dozy and docile. You may find them buzzing around occasionally as if they are drunk. This is usually the end-time for their life.
  • Spiders in particular are more active at this time of the year.
  • Squirrels will gather their food and start to look for shelter.
  • The second breeding phase for flies begins. These pests remain active during the season.
  • Rodents also become more active. Due to the approaching cold, rodents usually find shelter inside homes in the loft or inside walls.

The coldest months are when pests seek out warmth and shelter. You will find a number of insects especially rodents and lizards make their way inside your home.

  • Spiders come into our homes to escape the web-destroying frosts.
  • Rodents move indoors to escape the cold, increasing infestations.
  • In many cases, homeowners find squirrels nesting in lofts when they go to get their Christmas decorations.
