Bedbug types include: common bedbugs, tropical bedbugs, bat bugs, swallow bugs, and poultry bugs. These appear very similar to the untrained eye. Pest control experts have the knowledge, equipment, and treatments to handle.
Bedbug anatomy is well-suited for their life. Their body has a head, thorax, and abdomen. It is small and flat for hiding in small places. The tubes in their mouths are ideal for puncturing human skin and feeding on blood.
Prevention is the best method to keep rodents out of a house. Ensure all openings to the outside are sealed with proper materials. Keep counters clean, food properly stored, trash sealed, and all of it away from the ground.
Termites can devastate a home. They feed on the products used in construction. Signs of damage are hollowed wood, mud tunnels at the foundation, piles of wings or swarms, blistered paint, and minimal water damage on walls.
The first step in controlling bedbugs is finding their hideout. Once located, a plan of action can be enacted. High heat, inescticides, and powders are all good at eliminating bedbugs. Consult a pest control expert for help.
