Bed bugs are no match for you and your Tulsa exterminator. Bed bugs are a parasitic insect that feeds off of our blood. They will survive in our beds and couches and lie in wait until we fall asleep. Here they do their terrible work. They crawl on you, bite you and feed off of your blood causing itchy bites, and general discomfort. While they don’t spread any diseases, they can cause a psychological weight on you and your family that no one needs. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at bed bugs, their life cycle, and what you and your Tulsa exterminator can do to protect yourself from these insects.
BLOOD FEEDING BED BUGS AND TULSA EXTERMINATOR
Bed bugs are a parasitic insect that feed off of our blood. While they can find sustenance from other animals, such as dogs and cats, they can’t actually move through their lifecycle without feeding off of us. It’s believed these insects are close relatives of the bat bug. When we lived in caves these bat bugs were feeding upon bats roosting above us. A portion of them came down the walls and fed on us, becoming the modern day bed bug. Check out our reviews!
In most cases, when bugs can feed off of our blood, they can usually spread disease. Mosquitoes, ticks and fleas all can pass diseases to us and our pets. This is not necessarily true with a bed bug. Because of the way that it feeds on us, there’s never an exchange of fluid that goes back into our skin. Because of this, bed bugs don’t transmit any diseases. There’s been no documented case of a person contracting a disease from a bed bug.
But this doesn’t mean that there is an a psychological toll that it takes on people when they have bed bugs in their home. The idea that there are bugs crawling in your bed and biting you when you sleep is unnerving to say the least. Giving people peace of mind is what we do here at TermMax pest control. If you’re having a problem with bed bugs, call your Tulsa exterminator immediately for help.
ELIMINATING BED BUGS
Bed bugs can be somewhat difficult to get rid of. They are very good at hiding in your bed and in your couches. They can also be inside a wall or other place. So sometimes finding them can be difficult. In addition to this, bed bugs are very good at building immunities to pesticides that are overused against them. And that many of the over the counter pesticides that we find are permethrin‘s. This is a family of pesticides that was used extensively against these bugs in the 90s. Now they have pretty much become immune to them and making these pesticides worthless. Contact your Tulsa exterminator for help.
