Although they are not the most dangerous pests,
bed bugs in Orange County have been intruding in homes throughout history. Although
pest control services have developed effective treatments for these infestations,
the problem continues to occur. Keep reading to find out if bed bugs are
on the rise and what you can do about them in your home.
Although bed bugs are by no means a new problem, they have shown a particularly
noteworthy resurgence over the past few years. Despite the common misconception
that they are more likely to infest cluttered homes and only the unkempt
bed bugs could be anywhere. They do tend to be found in areas that experience rapid turnover in residency
such as dorm buildings, hotel rooms, and hospitals. However, due to their
willingness to travel, it is rare for any given location to be inherently
immune to bed bugs.
Bed bugs display certain traits that help them survive over long periods
of time and travel over great distances, allowing them to spread their
infestations and make their comeback effective. Although they survive
by consuming blood, they do not need to feed every day; this makes it
very difficult to starve these pests out. They also travel by hitching
a ride on clothing or in suitcases, purses, or backpacks. When pests are
able to transport themselves like that, they can spread their influence
anywhere they desire.
The fact that most homeowners do not know exactly how to kill bed bugs
effectively combined with the resilience of these pests lead to professional
pest control being the best treatment method. In the meantime, however,
you can wash your bedding in hot water and allow the heat to kill any
bed bugs that you may currently have.
