Get Rid Of Bed Bugs For Good: The Most Effective Control Solution For Lawrenceville Homes

Bed bugs are a fast-growing problem for homeowners in Lawrenceville. The odds, unfortunately, are not in our favor. Statistics show nearly 20% of Americans are at risk for a bed bug infestation within the next 12 months. This means if you look down the street at four of your neighbors, one of you has a chance of bringing home bed bugs this year.

Discovering a bed bug infestation in your home is extremely overwhelming, as these pests waste no time settling down once they get introduced to your home. Not only will they feed on you and your family, but they'll likely leave a mess on your blankets, pillowcases, and mattresses. If their itchy bites don't keep you up at night, worrying about how to get rid of them will.

It's not all doom and gloom, however, especially with the right prevention measures in place. Knowing what it takes to keep bed bugs out of your house is an excellent first step toward long-term prevention.

That said, many people don't know where to start with bed bug control, much less how to apply the right prevention methods to keep their homes safe.

Bed Bug Behavior: Understanding Their Habits And Traits

Bed Bug

Bed bugs in Lawrenceville are certainly not a new phenomenon – these pests have been plaguing households for most of recorded history! Although they all but disappeared in the mid-1950s, changes in public transportation allowed these pests to resurge across the nation.

In fact, this bed bug 'renaissance' in the United States is mostly due to the pest's unique questing behaviors. Many people refer to bed bugs as the 'hitchhiking pest' thanks to their uncanny ability to sneak around undetected.

Most bed bug infestations start in high-density areas, including subways, trains, and airport terminals. These pests waste no time crawling from one potential victim to another and can even hide in clothing you're physically wearing. Since these pests are quite small (just 1/4 an inch in size) and extremely good at hiding, you may not even notice these stowaways on your luggage until it's too late.

Bed bugs begin to feed on their new host as soon as it's safe to do so. As nocturnal pests, they attack during the night and leave a network of zig-zagged bites across your body. They may also leave blood spots or excrement stains as they travel across bed sheets and pillowcases.

Once bed bugs have consumed enough blood for one evening, they usually return to their hiding place and wait out the daytime. They may also scout the rest of your home for 'food,' invading new rooms and putting other family members at risk. In rare cases, bed bugs can also feed on cats and dogs.

Thankfully, your pets don't have to worry about any serious side effects from bed bugs. But what about the rest of your family?

Let's take a closer look.

Preventing Bed Bug Infestations: Tips And Techniques

It's impossible to lower your risks of bed bug exposure completely to zero. However, it is possible to significantly reduce your chances of getting a bed bug infestation. We recommend following these helpful tips for how to prevent bed bugs from invading your Lawrenceville home:

  • After returning from a trip, wash all clothing on the highest heat setting available on your washing machine. You may want to dry it on high heat as well or hang it outside to dry.
  • Let your luggage air out in the sunshine for at least 12 hours after returning home. You may want to give them a visual inspection for tiny, brown bugs no bigger than an apple seed.
  • Check overnight lodgings like hotels and Airbnbs for any sign of bed bug activity. We recommend using the credit card test: run a flat-edged object along the seams of furniture and mattresses to see if bed bugs stir or run away.
  • Store your luggage up high and off the floor while using public transportation. Airplanes and trains typically have above-ground storage areas, while buses may require you to stash items on your lap.

Even if you follow the above steps perfectly, you should know bed bug prevention isn't an exact science. One or two bugs may still get inside your home and quickly become a bigger problem if not addressed.

Thankfully, the professional team at ProCare Pest Services can help you seamlessly navigate the bed bug control process. Let's look at the treatment we've used to successfully treat households in Lawrenceville and beyond.
