Bed bugs are probably what your Tulsa Pest Control company can help you eliminate. Bed bugs are blood-sucking insects that can attack us when we are most vulnerable.  They attack us when we are sleeping. They’ll sneak our beds and feed upon our blood. While they don’t necessarily spread any specific diseases. This is very unnerving and a problem for most people. Keeping them out of your house should be priority number one. So this article takes a good look at bed bugs and their life cycle and what you and your Tulsa Pest Control company can do to keep them away from you and your loved ones.

Bed Bug History

We have had bed bugs with us since the beginning of time. There are cave paintings that have bed bugs on their walls. This shows us even cavemen dealt with these insects. Going to the Dark Ages, there are potions and spell books that call for crushed bed bugs. The Romans wrote about bed bugs and how they dealt with them.

Bed bugs were a problem until the 1940s. It was during that time that a new pest site came on the scene. DDT was the miracle pesticide that killed everything. People would douse their mattresses, sheets and pillows with DDT in an effort to get rid of bed bugs, and it was quite effective. The problem was that DDT also caused cancer. When this was discovered, of course, it was pulled from the shelves. Bed bugs were almost wiped out completely but then, they had a new opportunity to survive. Since then, every year, bed bug populations have gotten larger and larger and we’ve had more calls for help because of them. Contact your Tulsa Pest Control company for help with bed bugs.

Well, there are over-the-counter solutions for bed bugs that are usually the worst idea to use. Hardware store solutions are usually pyrethrin which is a repellent spray pesticide. This pesticide was extensively used against bed bugs back in the 90s. Bed bugs are very good at adapting to different chemical pesticides. This is one that they have fully adapted to and it doesn’t hurt them whatsoever. In most cases, this is an opportunity for them to simply continue to multiply, and trench themselves more into your home.
