Bed Bugs In Your Carpet Springfield, MO.
What Are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are small insects that feed on human blood. They are mostly active at night when you are sleeping. Adult bed bugs have rusty-red colored oval bodies and are flat, they have no wings and are about the size of an apple seed. They are big enough to see, but hide in mattresses, box springs, bedding, cracks in furniture, floors, or walls and yes, even carpet. When bed bugs feed, they swell and become brighter red. They can live for several months to over a year without feeding. They don't jump or fly, and they move about the same speed as an ant.
How Do Bed Bugs Get In My Home:
Don’t worry; bed bugs are not a result of poor housekeeping. Anyone can get bed bugs. People bring bed bugs into their homes unknowingly in luggage, backpacks, purses, furniture, bedding, shoes or clothing. They can also travel through cracks in walls and floors.
If you have bed bugs and live in a rental property, notify the property manager immediately. Do not use pesticides to treat for bed bugs yourself. "General use" pesticides are not effective against bed bugs and can cause them to spread to adjacent units.
So How Do I get Rid Of Them?
