Many pests affect our daily lives and bed bugs are at the top of the list as a major nuisance. These tiny insects have a healthy appetite and humans are a favorite target as a food source.
What are bed bugs and how do I get rid of them is a question being asked and one that the Stern Environmental Group can answer.
About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are difficult to get rid. Do-it-yourself pest control most likely won’t get to the root problem creating an infestation.
They may be tiny, but they can be seen. Bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed. They are attracted, not to smell or color, but to carbon dioxide. Humans expel carbon dioxide morning, noon and night and the bed bugs are there to take advantage of breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The bugs can be found most anywhere in the home where there is clutter to hide in, dust ruffles around your bed or sofa, and in-between your mattress and box springs.
Vacuuming, dusting, and keeping areas clean has no effect on bed bugs. The main attraction is the carbon dioxide and this is wherever humans congregate.
