Bed Bug Control, Treatments and Extermination

Bed Bug Control Virginia

Bed bugs virtually disappeared from the list of household pests for decades. Conditions have changed to put these pests back on the most feared list for homeowners, apartment dwellers and hotel managers alike. For one, international travel has opened pathways for the insects to hitchhike from all over the world.

Secondly, the bugs built up a resistance to the many of the pesticides used to eradicate them in the first place. At Jesse James Pest Control of Fairfax, we know that while these insects are not known to carry and transmit disease, they may be a serious nuisance, cause a rash or itchy skin and, in some cases, symptoms such as swelling and other allergic reactions.

At 3/16 of an inch for an adult, and pin head size for newly hatched nymphs, the reddish brown bug may be hard to identify easily.

Some indications of bed bug infestation:

Bed Bug Treatments, Extermination
  • Blood spots on mattress and/or linens
  • Discarded skin husks
  • Little red bite marks on skin

Prevention of an infestation may be difficult, as cleanliness has little to do with it. They typically enter a house on used furniture, people and pets.
