Call Now for a Citrus Heights Bed Bug Exterminator
Bedbugs can hide out anywhere from bedding, carpets, rugs, and blankets to clothes, wallpaper, drapes, wood furniture, and other cloth material. These nasty critters may start biting you as soon as it gets dark out, and will not stop before dawn arrives. While they only congregate in areas where humans relax and sleep, they can also travel up to 100 feet in search of food.
Although bed bugs were wiped out for a time in America, they have made a comeback due to the rise in international travel. Today they are often found in resorts and apartment buildings, and can even survive annually for a time without food. Your cat and dog’s fur also tends to be a hiding place for bed bugs, and it’s common to pick them up while taking public transportation. Physically, they are about one-fourth of an inch long, with oval bodies, antennae and cone-shaped eyes. While they are unable to fly they, can move extremely quickly, and reproduce at a high rate in temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees. There is no good way to get rid of bed bugs on your own, and because they will just keep biting and biting as long as they have a food source around, it is extremely important to call our Citrus Heights bed bug control team at the first signs of an infestation.
Common signs you have a bed bug problem include:
- Itchy welts on your skin
- Blood stains on your sheets, blankets, and pillows
- A dark, rusty discharge (bed bug excrement)
- Discarded shells and skins
- A musty odor around your property
Dealing with Termites in Citrus Heights,
Wood-eating termites create virtually noiseless destruction, often hiding in your home or business and causing a ton of damage until it’s too late to stop them. All wood-eating termites consume cellulose-based plant materials, which means any house or structure that uses some amount of wood could be a potential food source for them. While a subterranean termites may also go after trees and plants in your yard or garden, drywood and dampwood termites may be more likely to cause destruction inside your property. A typical nest of underground termites can consume up to sixteen grams of wood a day—this equals roughly twelve pounds of lumber annually!
