Hitchhiking Health Concerns You Should Know About

Many people think that bed bugs will only invade dirty homes. Unfortunately, these small pests do not care about the cleanliness of your house. All they are looking for is access to human blood. Bed bugs will come out from the cushions to suck on your blood while you are asleep. That's why you rarely see these tiny pets themselves. 

While no one has linked bed bug bites to disease transmission, these pests can create all kinds of medical conditions like skin irritation from scratching at the bite sites, insomnia, and anemia over time. Even after getting rid of the infestation, these health concerns can still hang around. That's why it's important to recognize the signs of an infestation early. Signs include:

  • Rust-colored rings from bed bug excrement

  • Musty odor on furniture

  • Red, itchy bite marks on your skin in a straight line

If you do notice any of these signs, don't try and get rid of bed bugs yourself. Since most of the pests are burrowed deep within your furniture and mattress cushions, typical remedies like vacuuming and spraying the furniture's surface will only take care of a small fraction of the problem.

Bed Bug Control From Destroy Pest Control

If you call us about a bed bug problem on your DMV area property, we'll begin with a free inspection. Our Destroy Pest Control pest managers will check the home's entire interior, top to bottom, and wall to wall. We'll inspect anywhere that bed bugs may be hiding, looking for casings, blood spots, or active bed bugs. Once we understand the entirety of the problem, we'll tell you which treatment options will be right for you. We offer all of the following bed bug treatments: 

  • Heat-Steam treatment: This treatment uses spot treatment technology designed to target areas of infestation

  • Ozone treatment: A device similar to an air-purifier is placed in your house that will rid the home of pathogens and micro-organisms like dust, dirt, and more.

  • Fumigation treatment: We fill the home with an airborne product that eliminates all bed bugs. The best part about the fumigation process is that you'll only have to be away from your house for four to six hours. 

We'll also apply liquid applications as a way of ensuring complete customer satisfaction. Since bed bugs are frustrating, recurring pests for many families, we offer 90-day, 60-day, and annual warranty plans for each treatment.
