Perfecting Pest Control

If you don't like pests setting up shop in your home, you might be interested in hiring a professional exterminator to help you with your problems. However, unless you understand the tools that they are working with, you might find yourself wondering what else you can do to curb issues. For example, if you don't mention that mosquito problem, your exterminator might not know to treat that water feature with a pesticide that targets larvae. My site explains different ways you can prepare for your professional pest control treatment, so that you aren't left with issues later down the road.

4 Easy Ways You Can Tell That You Need a Bedbug Exterminator


Bedbugs are the most annoying little pests to live with. It is true that they do not carry any diseases and will not cause you any serious health problems, but the itchiness, scratching, and inflammation from their bites can be completely unbearable. The worst thing about the pests is that the moment they start breeding inside your furniture, it takes a lot of work to remove them completely. 

The best way to deal with bedbugs is by hiring a pest exterminator. Here are four signs that you have a bedbug problem in your home.

When You Have Inexplicable Itchy Red Spots on the Skin

The easiest way you can tell that you have a bedbug problem in your home is when you start waking up with unexplained itchy red spots on your skin. When the bedbug touches you, it releases some chemicals into your skin. The chemicals irritate your tissues. Your body produces histamine around the bite to protect the neighboring cells from further inflammation. The histamine is what causes the redness and the swelling. Note that there are people who get an allergic reaction to bedbug bites, and others develop anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening.

When You Have Clear Bites on Your Skin

Bedbugs are blood-sucking insects. They survive on the blood that they get from humans, rodents, and birds. If they have infested your home, they will frequently bite and draw blood from you. The bites can be very visible on the skin, especially if they are on the arms and the legs. They are also very itchy and sometimes even painful. If you have a line or pattern of bite marks on your skin, with redness and swelling around them, you probably have bedbugs in your home.

When There's a Strong Musty Scent in Your Bedroom

Another way to know that you have bedbugs in your home is when your bedroom and other living areas have a strong, musty smell. Bedbugs produce very strong pheromones. When there are large numbers of insects in your home, the smell can be overwhelming. It is best to call in an exterminator to inspect the house and figure out if you have the pests.

When You Have Tiny Blood Stains in Your Bedding

These tiny stains come from either squashing a bedbug as it feeds or from the little open wounds left by the bugs. Call in a bedbug exterminator to get rid of these nagging pests. as soon as these spots appear. They will help clear the problem and prevent it from recurring.
