“Ignoring bed bugs will only make the problem worse!”
Bed bugs have resurfaced as an important public health issue in Tempe Arizona. They have become a problem of concern not only in housing institutions, hotels, and motels, but multiple and single family homes as well. The problem shows no signs of relief with bed bug pest control Tempe Az service calls up 30% or last year’s record.
Tempe is an international city with tourist and student visiting from every imaginable corner of the earth. Bed bugs are excellent hitchhikers and it’s suspected that guests transport them hidden in luggage from previous accommodations, or introduce the insects with items brought from infested homes. The demand for bed bug pest control Tempe Az exterminator services has never been greater.
Although bed bugs are capable of spreading diseases, research has not been able to document transmission of any disease agents during the feeding process. The principal medical importance of this pest is the welts, local inflammation, and itching caused by allergic reactions to the saliva that is introduced early in the act of feeding. Although some individuals bitten by bed bugs have no reaction, others respond with considerable irritation at the site of the bite and suffer from irregular and restless sleep.
Bed bugs are small and depending upon their life stage can be difficult to detect. Adult bed bugs are oval, 4 to 7 mm long, and reddish-brown in color. Bedbugs are beetles and can be easily mistaken for other types of Arizona insects. It’s advisable to get a free inspection and evaluation from an experienced exterminator prior to considering eradication methods.
Bed bugs develop from egg capsules to reproductive adults in as little as 37 days. This rapid life cycle, the ability of females to produce as many as 500 eggs during a lifetime, as well as their ability to endure prolonged starvation for periods of 80 to 140 days in the absence of a host, makes these insects ideally suited to infestation of hotels and motel rooms across the east valley.
Infestations can be introduced into family dwellings in a number of different ways. Travelers often unknowingly bring the insect’s home in luggage after staying in infested hotel and/or motel. Bed bugs can also stow away in furniture or boxes that are being moved, or arrive in second-hand furniture or mattresses.
Once in a home, bed bugs can find harborage in just about any crack or crevice. In newly established infestations they often nest close to beds and can be observed along the edge ribbing or beneath the buttons of mattresses, between the mattress and box spring, on the interior surface of the support frame, or behind a headboard. Box springs and bed frames make ideal nesting areas while keeping the critters close to a steady food source – people.
Since most inspections for these critters occur during daylight hours when they are hidden away in nesting areas it’s important to recognize the signs of infestation. These pests are gregarious and numerous individuals may be found in convenient harborage sites, where clumps of small, yellowish eggs are often deposited, and the tarry black excrement may collect. Empty egg shells and cast skins are frequently observed in the immediate area. Bed bug feeding wounds often bleed for a short period after the bug removes its mouth parts, resulting in speckles or streaks of blood on bed linens. This could be one of the first signs of a newly established infestation.
Eradicating bed bug infestations can be a difficult task even for the most experienced exterminator. In multiple family dwellings, infestations can spread from one unit to another through wall voids where the pests can travel along water pipes and electrical wires. Under these circumstances, the successful abatement of the problem requires a cooperative effort between the property owners, tenants and the exterminator.
Eliminating a bed bug infestation is not usually a do-it-yourself project. Eradicating an infestation often requires more than just spraying strong pesticides. In fact this approach can make the problem worse while needlessly exposing a household to toxic chemicals. The key to effective elimination is locating and treating all nesting areas and isolating sleeping areas from this micro sized blood suckers.
Liquid household pesticides can control bed bugs on contact and on keep them off sprayed surfaces for a short period after application, but will not provide effective long term relief. Liquid pesticides should never be applied to a mattress or bedding that comes in contact with humans or pets.
Dust formulations can provide long lasting residual control in and around nesting areas. Thorough vacuuming of other possible harborage sites on a daily basis is extremely important. All furniture, upholstery, throw pillows, and draperies must be closely examined for bed bugs and thoroughly vacuumed. Remove bed linens and vacuum the surface of the mattress and box spring, checking closely for rips or tears which could provide additional harborage. Lift the box spring and vacuum the bed support frame and all surfaces of the headboard. Vacuum bags should be immediately discarded outside after every use. Household cleansers should be used to eliminate any fecal spotting observed and bed linen should be run through a full cycle dryer.

“After a 50 year absence…bed bugs are back with a vengeance!”
The invasion of bed bugs has been all over the media with stories of people being attacked on everything from boats to inside five star resorts. Bedbugs are not picky they will take up residence in just about any location that people consistently sleep or rest. Unfortunately the east valley has not been immune to this invasion. Calls for bed bug pest control Gilbert Az services are up 30% over last year’s record.
Like something straight out of a horror film, every night some Gilbert residents curl up in their bed thinking they are alone and hoping to get a good night’s sleep only to discover they are not alone.
Bed bugs usually nest in and around areas that people usually sleep or rest between midnight and first light. Their physical small size allows them to remain hidden during daylight hours in just about any imaginable crack or crevice. Mattress box springs present ideal nesting opportunities for these insects. At night they are attracted to nearby humans that provide an endless supply of blood.
For most infestations, we recommend reducing clutter, sealing cracks and crevices (nesting areas), vacuuming often, drying infested clothes at high heat for at least 20 minutes and using a special mattress cover (encasements) so you can sleep tight without letting the bedbugs bite. Travelers should always inspect hotel mattresses, box springs and headboards for the pests and be familiar with the tell-tale signs of their presence.
Before considering any bed bug pest control Gilbert Az service it’s best to start with a thorough inspection by an experienced exterminator. Bed bugs are essentially beetles that come from a large family of similar looking insects. It’s not uncommon to mistake these insect for other types of beetles.
Since most inspections take place during business hours when these critters are hidden away it’s important to be familiar with the tell-tale signs of their presence. Short of discovering these critters nesting in a hidden area experienced inspectors will look for dark colored fecal droppings or stains and dried blood on bed linen. Small clear colored eggs are occasionally observed around heavy infestations.
Bite marks on their own should not be considered conclusive evidence of a bed bug infestation as there are multiple pests that leave similar bite marks.
Getting rid of these insects is not difficult nor should it be expensive. However complete extermination may require precision, continued monitoring and follow up inspections.

What are bedbugs?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Bed bugs, bed-bugs, or bedbugs are parasitic insects of the cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood. Cimex lectularius, the common bed bug, is the best known, as it prefers to feed on human blood.
The name “bed bug” derives from the preferred habitat of Cimex lectularius: warm houses and especially nearby or inside of beds and bedding or other sleep areas. Bed bugs are mainly active at night, but are not exclusively nocturnal. They usually feed on their hosts without being noticed.
How do I know if I have them?

Keep in mind that these micro sized blood suckers come from a large family of similar looking insects and it is not uncommon for consumers to discover what they thought was bed bugs was another type of beetle. This is a common occurrence during the spring and monsoon season when insect hatching are at their peak.
How do I get rid of them?
Unfortunately getting rid of bed bugs is not a do-it-yourself project. Getting rid of these critters can be a challenge for even the most experienced exterminator. We visit a lot of homes where frustrated consumers have failed to eliminate these insects after months of trying. Attempts to eradicate these insects can make the problem worse while needlessly exposing a household to dangerous chemicals.

Unless the infestation is large and well established treatment methods can be confined to areas of activity.

“Getting rid of bed bugs in Chandler Az does not have to be difficult nor expensive.”
Less than ten years ago service calls for bed bugs were rare and practically non-existent. If fact of the few calls (1-4 a month) almost half were generated by other exterminators who had no experience with this pest and referred their customers to us. Today the demand for bed bug pest control Chandler Az services has never been greater in fact calls for service are up 30% over last year’s record pace.
Bed bugs are everywhere in Chandler. “Experts” attribute the increase of calls to more international travel to areas that were hotbeds of activity and the influx of immigrants from those areas. Growth in Chandler Arizona has brought more international travelers and immigrants taking up residence.
The average Chandler infestation (we see) is in a residential home where a guest or family member has visited bringing the critters with them. The introduction of used furniture and/or mattresses accounts for a large number of service calls. Consumers are advised to screen guests for previous exposure and carefully inspect used furniture.
Calls for service have come in from hospitals, retirement centers, theaters, bus companies, boat owners, hotels, resorts, semi tractor trailer trucks, and motels. Just about any place that people consistently sleep or rest between the hours or midnight and first light is a good nesting area for bedbugs.
Adult bedbugs are wingless, reddish brown, flattened, oval, 4-5 mm long and are fast runners. When in a hurry the can outrun most insects including German Cockroaches. They change color to a deep red-brown after a blood meal. Usually flattened from top to bottom, bedbugs will swell like a balloon while feeding on humans. Young bedbugs called “nymphs” look like adults only smaller and do not get any color until after their first blood meal.
Consumers are best served having a professional bed bug exterminator inspect for these insects. It’s not unheard of for our inspectors to respond to a call only to discover that it is another type of pest. Bed bugs come from a very large family of insects and to the untrained eye other types of beetles can appear similar.
Adults may live just shy of a year. Eggs can be difficult to see as they are clear colored and only 1mm in length. Bedbugs have short piercing sucking mouth parts that require them to feed in areas of humans with little or no hair. They pierce the skin, injecting an anti-coagulant then withdraw blood until full. It’s not uncommon for these critters to make 2-3 attempts at feeding when they encounter movement from sleeping humans. Adult bedbugs will feed every 5 to 10 days.
Bedbugs are often mistakenly associated with filth. They are attracted to exhaled carbon dioxide and body heat. They feed on blood, not dirt or waste. The sanitation of an environment does not affect bedbugs. Bedbugs have not been known to transmit any disease to humans; however, continued feeding on the same host can cause an allergic reaction to the bedbug saliva. The reaction is much like the reaction to a mosquito bite.
Bedbugs can infest a structure as stowaways on luggage, clothing, used furniture, bed frames, mattresses, etc. They can adhere to clothing and move from one location to another with ease. Once inside a structure bedbugs can travel from room to adjacent room (dormitory) or remain close to the food source. They typically nest is small clusters in bed frames, box springs, mattress, carpet, baseboards, in the dressers, closets, in picture frames, etc. In short, bedbugs can be found almost anywhere in a structure.

Bed Bug Pest Control Scottsdale Az – Bed Bugs are a nightmare. Get rid of them today with affordable bed bug pest control Scottsdale Az service.
“Bedbugs are gross and most of us cringe at the thought of these critters lurking in our bedrooms.”
Got critters? If so you’re not alone. Consumer demand for bed bug pest control Scottsdale Az services has increased 30% over last year’s record setting pace. Bed bugs seem to be everywhere in Scottsdale. While the average service request is a consumer with an infestation inside the home service calls have included movie theaters, waiting rooms, Five Star resorts, hotels, boats, sleeper semi trucks, hospitals, care centers, apartments, buses and RV’s. Just about any place that people sleep or rest can be infested.
“Experts” associate the increase to more international travel coming to the valley. Bed bugs are excellent hitchhikers so that theory is not hard to accept. In Scottsdale we trace the average infestation to a guest or family member coming to visit. That guest or family member has, or “had” an infestation at their home and brought the problem with them. Storing furniture, and/or buying used furniture or mattresses are a close second on the list of causes of bed bug infestations in Scottsdale. Knowing who is coming into your home, avoiding used furniture and mattresses are good preventative steps to avoiding this nightmare.
Bedbugs are parasitic insects or beetles of the cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood. Cimex lectularius, the most common bed bug found in the Phoenix area, is the best known, as it prefers to feed on human blood.
In layman terms these insects are small beetles that can be difficult to see with the naked eye and are somewhere from a dark brownish red to a burgundy color. New hatchings are very small and clear colored until their first blood meal. Bed bugs nest in hidden areas during daylight hours and emerge between the hours of midnight and 5AM seeking blood from unsuspecting humans.
No matter what they are or how they are described “Bedbugs” are gross and most of us cringe at the thought of these critters lurking in our bedrooms.
Getting rid of these little monsters does not have to be difficult nor expensive. Before considering any bed bug pest control Scottsdale Az service it’s important to get a thorough inspection from an experienced exterminator. This is a critical first step as we often receive calls for service from consumers that think they have, or have been incorrectly informed, have them. Bed bugs are beetles and come from a large family of pests. Many beetles are similar in appearance and to the untrained eye they can be easily mistaken.
A good inspector should be able to determine if you have bed bugs and locate all areas of infestation. These micro sized blood suckers typically live in the immediate area of their food source with most infestations centered around a bed that consistently has people sleeping from midnight to first light. Larger infestations tend to spread a bit further with foragers looking for other food sources. In most cases treating the areas of infestation is all that is needed to eliminate the problem.
Consumers are cautioned that moving from one room to another can spread the infestation. Using many over-the-counter insect sprays can also make the problem worse. In general effectively ridding a home of these critters is not a do-it-yourself project. Many of the calls we receive are from frustrated consumers who have tried for months only to see the problem get worse.
