Homeowners sometimes have to delay plans. Their schedules are constantly packed, and their “to-do” lists are always a mile long. Due to this, pest remediation usually gets put off for long periods of time.The likelihood of this happening is great when there are no noticeable insects and creatures on the property. However, with the way some of them operate, you’d need to have things in place to block them in advance or catch them right away. This is the situation with bed bugs in New Castle.

Bed bugs often appear suddenly and they reproduce very quickly. They’ll bite your skin while you're sleeping and drink up your blood. The end results are numerous itchy and red bites. Desiring an instant and cheap fix, people will try faulty “do it yourself” (DIY) tactics. Find out why this is a bad idea and why you should contact Moyer Pest Control instead.

How Do You Get Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs must have blood, or else they won’t survive. The simplest thing for them to do is surround animal zones and public places, so they can have continual opportunities to receive the fluid. Keep your eyes wide open when you’re in a school, office, hotel, or bus station. These creepy crawlers will load in personal bags or clutch onto your clothes. You’ll be completely unaware as they follow you home. You probably won’t see them venturing off to:

  • Fabrics 

  • Mattresses

  • Couches

  • Upholstery

  • Electronics

  • Appliances

  • Wallpaper

  • Flooring

  • Wood trim

You’ll have three signs that bed bugs have infested your abode, and that will be body bites, stains, and odors. The bumps on your skin will be rash-like, patchy, and lumped together. Don’t be surprised to see them on your face, neck, arms, legs, and elsewhere. Blood drops and blemishes will be on fabrics and surfaces. They will be reddish-brown, brown, or black. Marks of the latter two colors are fecal waste and might be powdery. Bed bugs are smelly insects, creating a musty whiff wherever they go.
 
Common bed bugs are quite tiny, being a maximum length of 0.25 of an inch. They have reddish-brown skin, two antennas, and six legs. Their round heads are smaller than their globular tails. A middle part with an off-beat shape joins the two halves. When these pests mate, they lay pearly white eggs. Translucent young will eventually be born.

Are DIY Bed Bug Methods Useful & Inexpensive?

Most of the retail products that people use for “do it yourself” bed bug elimination cost between $20.00 to $90.00 each.That’s fairly expensive when you consider that you’ll have to repeatedly make purchases. The reason being that commercial items and “at home” concoctions won’t get rid of infestations. To do that, all eggs and insects must be purged. They are too small to find, and their populations are too large. Moreover, there are hazards associated with using DIY products, such as:

  • Rubbing Alcohol: The containing ethanol is flammable, and is known to spur respiratory conditions.  

  • Diatomaceous Earth (DE): This powerful powder will dry out bed bugs, but it’s not safe to breathe around. 

  • Dry Ice: Chemical burns and carbon dioxide exposure are the two big risks with this option.
