About Bed Bugs
Hometown Pest Control has been using the best strategies and tools in the industry to solve our customers' pest problems. We can handle a variety of pests, and bed bug infestations are one of our specialties. Bed bugs are notoriously difficult to eradicate, but we know exactly how to eliminate these stubborn pests and keep them from coming back.
Bed bugs are blood feeding insects that feed on humans, usually during night hours when people are sleeping. Since we do not often observe bed bugs biting, it is easy to mistake the itchy, swollen areas on the skin for other insect bites. While the bites can become infected from scratching, bed bugs are not known to transmit any diseases; however, they are still a nuisance and serious pest problem.
Despite their name, bed bugs can infest areas other than beds. They tend to locate in cracks and crevices, such as behinds baseboards, wall outlets, and wallpaper; between bed joints, slats, and dresser drawers; and along mattress seams and in linens and clothes. Most bed bug infestations occur in the home, along with hotels, dormitories, and cruise ships.
There are several ways to get rid of bed bugs, though combining methods usually gives the best result. Since the bugs often hide in small cracks, treatment can be difficult. Hometown Pest Control technicians are experts at eliminating bed bugs. We offer such products as the Protect-A-Bed bedding encasements for your box springs and mattresses, and we can recommend a specialized bed bug treatment to meet your needs.
