Bed bug issues are difficult to eliminate unless you contact your Broken Arrow exterminator. Bed bugs are a parasite that feed upon the blood of humans. While they can survive on the blood of other animals, such as dogs and cats, they can’t continue their life cycle unless they get our blood. Because of this, they will hide in beds and couches and lie in wait until we go to bed and rest. Here they will attack us in our sleep when we’re most vulnerable. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at bed bugs, their life cycle, and what you and your Broken Arrow exterminator can do to stop these insects from feeding upon you and your loved ones.



The good news about bed bugs is that there are no known diseases that they spread. Because of the way that they draw blood out of our skin, they never transfer any fluids back into our bloodstream. Because of this, there’s no way that a virus or bacteria could be passed from a bed bug back into us. Doctors have been closely monitoring bed bug populations to see if there’s any correlation with disease spread and bed bugs and they have found none. While this is great news, it doesn’t account for the psychological weight these insects apply to their victims. It’s a very unnerving feeling to know that you’re sleeping in a bed with bugs that will bite you once you fall asleep. Because of this it is important that you contact your Broken Arrow exterminator to get rid of these insects as soon as possible.



There are many different ways that are used to eliminate bed bugs. Heat is one of the main ways. If you get these insects over 120°F they will die. Using a steamer can kill bugs if you see them. Some companies will also attempt to heat the entire house over 120° in order to kill all the bugs in the house. This can be dangerous and also can cause issues with plastics and glues that are found in your home. Chemical treatments are good as well, but they have their limitations. Check out our reviews!


Some pesticides that have been used extensively against bed bugs are no longer useful because these bed bugs have become immune. One of the best ways to control them is by using a natural predator that they already have. Apprehend is the product that we use here at TermMax pest control that contains the spore of a fungus. It’s natural predator to these insects. It’s extremely effective.
