At Moyer, we are proud to say that we are one of the industry leaders in the quick and efficient removal of bed bug infestations. In Pennsylvania, there is an array of activities and interests that keep people moving in and out of our state. The wide variety of attractions, vast number of colleges, and easy access to neighboring states means that there is a greater chance of bed bugs hitching a ride right into our homes. With bed bugs comes the risk of infection and skin irritation so we want to be sure to keep bed bug infestations at bay and treat any infestations immediately with the best solution possible.

Who is at Risk of Bed Bugs?

Anyone can be at risk of a bed bug infestation. It’s important to note that bed bugs are not an indication of a dirty home. Bed bugs can infest any home no matter how immaculate it is kept. Bed bugs do not discriminate!

What are the Dangers of Bed Bugs?

Though we previously thought bed bugs didn’t spread disease, a recent study actually linked bed bugs to the spread of a disease called Chagas disease, which can also be spread by the “kissing bug”. Bed bugs also leave behind itchy, unsightly red bumps when they bite and over time, scratching at these itchy bites can cause open wounds and can lead to secondary infections. In addition, as they bite and feed on you in your sleep, bed bugs defecate and urinate on you and your bedding which can trigger problems with allergies.

Why is DIY Treatment of Bed Bugs so Difficult?

Bed bugs are extremely resilient pests. They can survive for extended periods of time without a blood meal and can survive extreme temperatures from below freezing to above 100 degrees! While bed bugs don’t reproduce as quickly as some other pests, a single bed bug can lay about 200 eggs in its lifetime. This means that if you don’t eliminate every single bug, they will continue to reproduce, and those babies will mature and reproduce and you’ll have an infestation all over again! DIY bed control products such as chemical sprays and treatments are not effective at getting rid of bed bugs and can be harmful to you, your family members, and your pets.
