When you travel over the holidays, the only things you hope to bring home are happy memories, a souvenir or two, or perhaps gifts you received when visiting family. What you don’t expect is to have some hitchhikers! You might not notice that bed bugs came home with you right away, but by the end of January or beginning of February, they may have grown in number to be noticeable. The key to eliminating bed bugs is to reach out to a professional bed bug control company.
It can actually be easier to tell you have bed bug during the winter than in the summer. If you have bites on your body during the summer, you might pass them off as mosquito bites, but since few other biting insects are around in the winter, your first thought should be calling for bed bug control services if you find bites during the colder part of the year.
It might be tempting to try to deal with bed bugs on your own, but you should know that bed bugs have made a resurgence in recent years because they have evolved and can no longer be exterminated with past methods. DIY bed bug control is highly ineffective and gives them time to further breed and become a larger infestation. Another reason to call a bed bug control professional is because they can also inspect and deal with any other pests you might have and didn’t notice.
At Quality Control, Inc., we offer full-service pest control, including effective bed bug control services. Our goal is to give you the pest-free home throughout the year that your family deserves. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you notice a pest problem or would like to take a proactive approach to prevent infestations.
