Bed Bugs in El Dorado Hills, CA

They develop and multiply within a temperature range of 70 degrees around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. A bed bug, is generally known as a nymph, they are clear in color and changes into a bright red color after feeding. To achieve adulthood, a nymph bed bug must shed its skin approximately 5 times. The average female can lay 5 to 7 eggs weekly and can produce as much as 500 eggs throughout its life expectancy of 12 months to 1.5 years. The eggs will hatch out in just 6 to 17 days when they become known as nymphs. Bed Bug eggs are resistant to pesticide sprays. Bedbugs hide in bedding, carpeting, bedsheets, clothing, underneath wallpaper, under cloths, between window curtain folds, behind wall decorations and behind wooden furnishings. They love to attack in the evening and they will remain active until before daybreak. Bedbugs bite exposed skin of a person sleeping in an infested bed and leave red scratchy dots. They do not wander off from sleeping and lounging areas but they be capable of travel over 100 feet during the night to search for food. Bedbugs were once terminated in the US but they're making a comeback with the aid of international travelers. The most common places to get them are inns and condominium buildings. The infestation can survive a year without food. This permits them to journey from different places until they found a comforting place with food. They will hide on clothes and suitcases of travelers. They also are in couches and can be transferred from house to house through used furniture. Domestic animals like cats and dogs have thick fur which makes for a good hiding spot for bed bugs.
