1. What is a bed bug?
Bed bugs are small, non-flying insects that feed by sucking blood from unsuspecting humans or animals. Their bites leave large red welts on the skin, causing irritation and rashes.
Bed bugs can invade a home or place of business a number of ways, most commonly by ‘hitching’ or laying eggs on articles of clothing, luggage or bags, or even inside furniture. Bed bugs are attracted to living things and feed on blood, not filth – so no matter how clean you keep your home or business it does nothing to prevent a bed bug infestation. Before now, treatment options were ineffective, dangerous and limited…
2. What can happen in my home if I get bed bugs?
Bed bugs are a common pest in homes. They can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions. They are also known to carry diseases like Chagas disease, which is a parasitic disease that can lead to heart failure and death.
Bed bugs have been around for centuries and have been found in the homes of ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and Native Americans. What makes them such a tough bug to get rid of is the fact that they only come out at night when you’re asleep.
If you think you might be getting bed bugs in your home it’s important to take precautions right away by inspecting your bedding, furniture and other items that may be infested with bed bugs.
3. How do I know if I have bed bugs?
There are a few ways to know if you have bed bugs:
– You can see the bed bugs themselves, with their flat, oval-shaped bodies and long antennae.
– You can find blood stains on your sheets or mattress.
– You can also check for fecal spots on your sheets or mattress.
– The presence of bites in the morning is another indicator of bed bug infestation.
4. How do I get rid of them?
The most effective way to eliminate bed bugs is with heat treatment as it dehydrates the bugs. Heat treatment is a safe, non-chemical alternative for pest control. It works by pumping heat into a structure through flexible ducts to raise room temperatures in the range of 140-150ºF.
Unfortunately there are down sides to using heat treatments to get rid of bed bugs. Heat treatments are not 100% effective as the heat may just cause the bugs to scatter and possibly lead to further infestation, such as in the room next door or the floor above. It is also very expensive as it requires specialized equipment and a lot of preparation. A small apartment treatment may cost in the range of $1,200 and with preparation, take up to eight hours.
RestAsure is the only product on the market that utilizes dehydration methods to exterminate bed bugs for good and at any stage of their life.
