Bed bugs impact residents of San Luis Obispo and communities in and around the Central Coast of California. While bed bugs do not actually spread disease, their parasitic habits are uncomfortable yet avoidable. Bed bugs suck the blood from humans and animals, usually while they are asleep, which is the source of these pests name.
Interestingly, these creatures do not live in beds or bedding, but will move over large areas in search of a source of blood. They are experts at hiding, and because of their flat shape, can crawl into small cracks and crevices. This makes them difficult to find. We are experienced in locating bed bugs living areas by tending to the areas to which they are attracted allowing us to eliminate them effectively.
To eliminate bed bugs, help from a professional is usually necessary.
Bed buds can range in color from reddish to brown. They can survive for long periods of time without food and are attracted to both body heat and carbon dioxide given off by animals and humans.
Bed bugs do not always leave bite marks on the skin, but the affected areas usually become swollen and red. The bites itch and the itchiness usually last longer than other kinds of insect bites. Bites are likely to show up in clusters as well. You may notice reddish brown spots on your bed linens as evidence that they have been there.
