A bed bug infestation is a big problem, and it’s one that many New Jersey residents are currently facing or have faced in the past. A quick Internet search will turn up thousands of stories from people who have gone before you who have attempted various ways to eliminate them or at least keep them controlled. Many people try different techniques because they assume the cold winter temperatures will cause bed bugs to die. However, that is not the case.
While it’s true that bed bugs can be killed using rapid cooling using extremely cold temperatures, they’re just as plentiful and hardy in the winter as they are in the summer months. That’s because we like to keep our homes nice and warm, which gives them the perfect environment to thrive and multiply.
The best course of action to take if you think you have a bed bug infestation is to contact a NJ Pest Control Specialist. There are other pests that cause bites that look similar to those of a bed bug, but it is important to know what you’re dealing with. Once you’ve identified the problem, you can start working on a solution.
It would be great if bed bugs died off every winter, but unfortunately, that’s not the case. If you’re noticing signs of bed bugs – bites or welts, blood stains on your sheets or other signs – as your NJ Pest Control Specialist, we want to help you. Contact us!
