Hamilton Bed Bug Extermination
Bed bug infestations are increasingly common around the world. Learning to inspect your bedroom for bed bugs is your first and best method of control. Inspect your bedroom at the first indication of bites and react immediately to exterminate them. Unlike mosquitoes you rarely see a bed bug, even after they have infested your bedroom for months, they donít buzz and you will almost never feel them bite you. They hide and then when you are fast asleep they venture out to bite you.
Bed bugs are small insects that feed exclusively on human blood. A newly hatched bed bug is semi-transparent,light tan in colour and about the size of a poppy seed. An adult bed bug is flat, reddish/brown coloured, 5mm long and has an oval shaped body which resembles an apple seed. People sometimesmistakenbed bugs for carpet beetles or a newly hatched cockroach. They also leave droppings and eggs which can be found around the mattress seams and piping, on sheets, pillow cases,box springs, bed frames, under baseboards and in nearby furniture. Not all people show signs when they have been bitten by a bed bug. Bites can be small bumps or large, very itchy or barely noticeable. They usually go away after a few days. Bites alone are not significant enough evidence that you have bed bugs. Similar reactionscould be caused by something completely unrelated or some other insect. You must find other evidence to know that you have bed bugs. We recommend a thorough inspection of your bed. Bed bugs are most active when you are sleeping. They crawl out at night onto exposed skin and inject an anesthetic and suck up a small amount of blood and you donít hardly ever feel it. A female will lay about 5-7 eggs per week and can lay approximately 200-500 eggs in her life span. The eggs take about 10 days to hatch and are fully grown in about 2 months.
Hamilton Bed Bugs uses heat treatment to exterminate your bed bugs in a single treatment. Heat treatment pest control has been getting a lot of attention these days for controlling insects but it is not a new application system. It has been used for many years in the food distribution industry where pesticides were not desirable. Hamilton Bed Bugs stands behind our pest controlservice with a written warranty. We have been using heat treatment to successfully rid our customers of bed bugs for almost 2 years. The biggest advantage of heat is that it finds the bed bugs and their eggs where ever they may be hiding. The heat can penetrate into all those little nooks and crannies where they hide. The heat finds them and kills them instantly. Temperatures throughout the area are monitored very closely to ensure that killing temperature has penetrated the entire infrastructure. Large fans move air rapidly throughout the area to drive the heat into hard to reach places and leave no cool spots for bed bugs to survive.
