5 Common Myths About Bed Bugs

#1: Bed bugs are invisible

False. Adult bed bugs, nymphs, and their eggs are all visible to the naked eye.

#2: Bed bugs live in filthy surroundings or prefer dirty places.

False. Bed bugs prefer to live in clutter; however, they are not drawn to the dirt but rather to the warmth. Blood and carbon dioxide (C02) are also magnets for this pest, but dirt itself is not appealing to bed bugs.

#3: Bed bugs can only bite you at night

False. Although they prefer darker lighting, bed bugs can and will bite you at any time, that is, if they are hungry and you are around. Popping on the light, unfortunately, does not deter this pest.

#4: Bed bugs only infest mattresses

False. Bed bugs can also live in couches and chairs, be transported by bags and pets, and be picked up at places as common as the movie theater, on the bus, or at the mall.

#5: Bed bugs transmit deadly diseases

False. As strange as it seems, there are actually no reported cases of bed bugs directly transmitting human disease. Other symptoms, like insomnia and nervousness, as well as side effects such as secondary infections, can be caused by the presence of bed bugs. However, zero cases of disease transmission have been reported even though they can, in fact, harbor over 20 human pathogens.

What You Can Do to Help Prevent Bed Bugs

Prevention is the best approach for bed bugs. Making sure not to pick up furniture off the side of the road or that has been stored outside can help to decrease your chances of bed bugs getting into your home. Sealing up any cracks and entryways in walls lessens the chances for pests to enter and multiply. 

Another helpful tip is to keep a tidy and organized living space. Bed bugs find more places to live in cluttered areas than in those that are well maintained.

If, however, you do find yourself with a bed bug infestation, the best thing you can do is call the Charlotte bed bug control professionals at Palmetto Exterminators. When bed bug infestations aren’t handled properly, they can spread the bed bugs instead of eliminating them.

Our Bed Bug Control and Treatment Measures 

The first and most important step is a complete inspection and identification of the infestation to determine the severity. Once the extent of the bed bug problem established, we will recommend the proper treatment.

An integrated pest management program that addresses sanitation, material application, and exclusion is necessary for bed bug control. Our control program features a high-pressure misting system.

It involves a 4-step process that includes:

  • Bedding
  • Mattress, box spring, and bed frame
  • Cracks
  • Crevices where the floor meets the walls
  • Doorframes
  • Wall voids

A follow-up inspection will take place about 7-10 days after our service to ensure the bed bugs have been eradicated.

    With the rainy day protocol, he made sure we knew to keep the dog inside for the appropriate amount of time - due to the use of a different outdoor treatment than on dry days

    I left work to meet him at my home and I was back to work in no time! He left his card for me to contact him if I had any further concerns and assured me that he is in the area frequently.
