Like other parts of the country, bed bugs are a pest that plague Neptune Beach residents. The insects are the world’s hitchhikers. They move from place to place by crawling into people’s luggage, carry-on bags and purses as well as inside briefcases and backpacks. Bed bugs strike fear into the hearts of many because not only are the little buggers tough to exterminate, but they also feed on your blood at night. Despite their feeding habits, bed bugs are unlikely to cause you harm unless you’re allergic to their saliva or feces.
Bed bugs are small reddish, brown insects. When it comes to the insect world, bed bugs reproduce slowly. Adult females produce about one egg each day while the typical housefly lays 500 eggs every three to four days.
The bugs can survive without blood for several months. Because of this, the pests are able to hang out in furniture and suitcases for a while until they come into contact with a food source. These durable creatures can live in temperatures that range from almost freezing to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. This is why it’s important to turn to the professionals for their elimination.
Rodents in Town
As with bed bugs, you should contact professionals to deal with a rodent infestation. One reason for this is that it’s important to know what kind of pests you have. Rats and mice infest homes and businesses, but voles and moles infest gardens, landscaped spaces and grass areas. If you hear noises within your home’s walls, it could be rodents making them, but it could also be insects. Knowing which critters are infesting your residence allows us to use the proper extermination methods.
Rodent populations can increase quickly, and it’s much harder to get rid of big ones than small ones. The beasties are also able to get inside structures through small openings. Mice can get into your home through a hole that’s around the size of a dime while rats are able to squeeze through quarter size openings. If you don’t currently have a rodent infestation, prevent one by sealing any cracks or openings that would allow them to enter your residence. Our technicians can inspect your home for pest entry points and living conditions that may tempt insects or rodents to move in with you.
