Bed Bug Exterminator – Bed Bug Exterminator NYC – Bed Bug Exterminator Brooklyn
Titan Pest Control knows that no one in NJ or NYC wants to share a bed with a bug!
Up until recently, bed bugs in NJ and NYC were thought to be a nuisance of the past. Sadly, they have resurfaced both here and abroad with a vengeance. These little buggers have been hiding in the wings and building up a strong resistance to the typical bug exterminating products and techniques.
Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?
Bed bugs are tenacious critters that can live for a year without being fed. They travel well and are thought to be coming from overseas, hopping inside of suitcases and on clothing for a free ride to your home. Even 5 star luxury hotels are now experiencing problems with these uninvited guests.
Bed bugs can live in your mattress and bed clothes, where they lie in wait for you to go to sleep. Once they hear your snoring, they know it’s time for dinner. You will not feel the bite, but you will wake up with an itchy bump in the morning.
Make Sure You Are Not a Bed Bugs Dinner
Despite their name, a bed bug can be hiding anywhere in your home. They find sofas and loveseats cozy too or may even make a home behind pictures and wall papers. This type of all-over infestation requires special care.
Bed Bug Facts That Will Give You Nightmares
- A female bed bug can lay 3 or 4 eggs every few days, or approximately 300 to 500 throughout their lifespan.
- Eggs takes 2 weeks to hatch.
- It only takes 4 to 6 weeks for a baby bed bug to reach adulthood.
- As they are growing, they will shed their skin 5 times.
- Bed bugs need to eat a meal at least one time in between each skin shedding.
- The average bed bug adult has a life expectancy of 10 to 12 months.
- A bed bug will not stay on you, but will return to his hiding spot after feeding off of your blood.
- Bed bugs can bite multiple times during one feeding.
- Although there has never been a documented case of transmission of disease to a human, bed bugs are known to be capable of carrying over 20 different pathogens, including HIV and Hepatitis B.
What Does a Bed Bug Look Like?
An adult bed bug is comparable in size to an apple seed. They are clear while growing and rust colored once they reach adulthood, turning a deeper shade of red after having just fed. They do not have wings, but are able to move very quickly, usually congregating in groups where they feel most secure.
Bed bugs are parasitic like ticks, feeding off of the blood of humans and pets. The difference being that they will detach from you once full, making it difficult to determine that you have an infestation.
How Do Bed Bugs Spread?
In addition to their rapid growth and large number of eggs laid by the females, adult bed bugs also move around by hitching a ride on your clothes. You can inadvertently bring them into your home just by sitting on a couch at a friend’s house. They typically like to stay close to where their next meal is going to come from, which is why they tend to congregate in a bedroom, but larger colonies will spread out into other areas of your home.
The Latest Anti-Bed Bug Weaponry from Titan Pest Control
Bed bugs are one of the most resilient insects known to an exterminator, often eluding even the most astute technician. They have grown resistant to many of the more common chemical treatments, requiring an exterminating team of Titan warriors to plan and execute a brutal attack. Before beginning, we do our own intense investigation and organize a plan to eliminate the problem. Because of their small size, ability to hide, and a large number of eggs, it may take multiple visits to eradicate a bed bug problem. Yet once Titan is on the job, you will soon rest peacefully at night again.
How to Recognize a Bed Bug Problem
If you are waking up with small bites or itchy welts in the morning, you may have a bed bug problem. Look for these signs of an infestation:
- Seeing the bugs – It is best to wait for late at night and use a flashlight to see if you spot any apple-seed sized bugs scurrying across your sheets.
- Finding case skins – In some cases you may find the small skin casings left behind by the younger bed bugs in between molts.
- Stains on sheets or blankets – The bed bugs will return to their hiding space after feeding, where they will leave blackish brown stains on sheets or blankets or small mounds on a non-porous surface.
