bedbug bites

Richardson Pest Control treats Bed Bugs in the Richardson, Texas area. What many people do not realize is that this pest can cause a variety of health problems including skin rashes, skin effects, emotional problems, and allergic symptoms.

They are becoming a problem once again, possibly encouraged by the increase in international travel. People who spend a lot of time in places with high turnovers of night-time guests such as hotels, hospitals or homeless shelters put themselves at an increased risk for bringing bugs back home.

Know More About Bedbugs

Houses can become infested in a variety of ways such as:

  • By coming in on clothes, shoes, luggage, pets, and even on people
  • Infested items being brought in such as furniture, clothing, or stuffed animals.
  • Travel of bed bugs from nearby dwellings that are infested such as adjacent apartments or office spaces. They are known to easily travel through duct work and false ceilings
  • Wild animals such as birds and bats can be a carrier.

How To Know If You Have Been Infested

Treating Bed Bugs is not an easy process in Richardson or anywhere for that matter, as they are incredibly elusive. They are generally nocturnal, making them hard to find at times. They will often hide in dark crevices and their tiny eggs will be nested in the seams of fabric or on mattresses. Here are some signs that you have been infested:

  • Bites on any skin exposed during sleep.
  • Fecal spots
  • Blood smears on sheets which appear as rust colored spots
  • Molts or “shells”
