Bed Bug Removal & Control in Wilmington, NC - Heat Treatment
America's Bed Bug Epidemic
Bed Bugs have been invading homes for centuries but only recently have they become a serious problem in America, with infestations dramatically on the rise since 1999.
The thought of these nasty little critters crawling around in your bed is enough to keep you awake at night.
But the good news is that there is a highly effective way of removing Bed Bugs!
And that way is Bug-N-A-Rug's special "Heat Method."
How to Spot Bed Bugs
Bed Bugs can be seen with the naked eye and are most likely to be detected hiding in your bedding.
They are small, oval-shape bugs of light brown in color, and can grow up to 7mm in length.
Other signs of a Bed Bug problem include evidence of their droppings, spots of dried blood on your sheets and the exoskeletons they leave behind during their life cycle. Bed Bugs also give off a distinct, musty odor.
When the Bed Bugs Bite
Bed Bugs are hematophagous (they feed on human blood) and typically bite during the night.
This explains why their most common habitat in the home is the bedroom, where they have easy access to your skin while you're sleeping. Bed bug bites will show as circular red marks, usually in clusters and most often on areas left uncovered by your sleepwear.
Reactions vary, but many find Bed Bug bites itch to distraction and they can lead to problems such as skin infection, anxiety and insomnia.
