What It Takes To Get Rid Of A Bed Bug Infestation In Your Ogden Home

November 05, 2022

It’s often believed that you will only find bed bugs in the homes of those who keep “dirty” homes. Well, believe it or not, bed bugs can be found in some of the most spotless homes and environments imaginable, as long as they have access to food: humans and other warm-blooded hosts.

The body heat we produce as well as the carbon dioxide when we exhale, are the major attractors of these pests. So, it’s also important to note that while these pests aren’t necessarily attracted to clutter associated with “dirty” homes, clutter does give them a reason to stay longer, as it provides them hiding spaces to remain closer to their food sources.

If you suspect you may have bed bugs in your Ogden home, the best form of bed bug control is going to be calling Ogden pest control.

Easy-To-Spot Signs Of A Bed Bug Infestation In Your Home

Recognizing a bed bug infestation in your home can be a little difficult if you’re unfamiliar with the signs. Bed bug identification is also essential, as these pests can resemble carpet beetles in your home. Misidentification can give bed bugs more time to establish themselves and spread. 

The good news is that though bed bugs may be a little difficult to identify, their signs are blatantly identifiable. Be on the lookout for these signs of a bed bug infestation.

  • Live bed bugs
  • Bed bug bites
  • Eggs and egg casings
  • Bed bug fecal matter
  • Blood stains

If you recognize any of these signs, call Mountain West Pest Control for bed bug pest control service for your home.

Bed Bug Infestations Only Get Worse With Time

Time is of the essence when it comes to bed bugs. In a matter of minutes, bed bugs can travel from room to room in your home. Even more mind-blowing, bed bugs can lay 1 to 12 eggs in a day and up to 500 eggs in their lifetime. 

So, the moment you see a single bed bug, it’s safe to assume there’s likely more hiding around your house. At the first sign of bed bugs in your home, or if you even think you may have them, your first course of action needs to be to call local pest control for bed bugs.

Why Do-It-Yourself Bed Bug Control Usually Fails

Pest professionals are called professionals for a reason. To properly and effectively remove bed bugs from a home, you have to know where bed bugs hide (and they don’t just hide in beds despite their name), and you need to have the proper tools, products, equipment, and knowledge on how to kill bed bugs and keep them away. Unless you’re a trained professional, your bed bug removal efforts will prove to be ineffective.
