If you’re going to go to war, it’s a good idea to know your enemy, and that is especially true when you’re going up against a bed bug infestation. If you plan to eliminate these pests, you need to know where they prefer to nest, what they like to feed on, how often they reproduce, and if they have any weaknesses that can be exploited. When you’re trying to remove these unwanted house guests, these bits of information can be invaluable, and professional Bed Bug Exterminators in NYC will make good use of them.
Bed bugs can enter your home in a number of ways, but the most common seems to be in new mattresses and box springs. Once they set up housekeeping and locate hosts that they can feed on, they are capable of multiplying extremely rapidly. Since bed bugs are nocturnal, they may be well-established before you are even aware of their presence. The thing that attracts these pests to us is the carbon dioxide we give off. Once they locate a host, they can inject a substance which deadens the skin, so they can pierce it and begin feeding on blood. They may only feed for seven minutes or less, but that’s long enough, and when they’re done, they will return to their harborage and can begin laying eggs shortly after.
Above and beyond the psychological effects that the presence of bed bugs can have, they are also capable of causing health issues such as serious skin rashes and allergic reactions.
