Pest Control For Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are a unique type of parasite that feed on the blood of humans, bats, chickens, and sometimes even domesticated animals. Although suspected of carrying diseases such as Leprosy, Q Fever, Oriental Sore & Brucellosis, there is no concrete evidence of them spreading these diseases to humans. These bed insects are distinguishable by their rust red/brown to mahogany colored, flattened bodies and well-developed antennae and small compound eyes. It is important to recognize that after feeding, bed bugs become swollen, longer, and dark red to dark brown in color. While these bed bugs may be a nuisance, identifying and properly treating a bed bug infestation promptly can prevent any further harm.
