Professional Bed Bug Pest Control Chicago IL
The bed bug “Cimex lectularius” is a small parasitic insect that feeds on blood from animals and humans. The species is shaped like an apple seed, with a reddish/black body, legs, and antennas. Travelers are at a higher risk of encountering bed bugs in motels, country inns, hotels, and bed & breakfasts. Most bed bug encounters go unnoticed for days, weeks, or months. Or, until the first bite appears on the skin.
Characteristics Of A Bed Bug Bite
Insect bites, including the bed bug bite, shares many of the same characteristics. The initial onset of symptoms includes a small pinpoint-sized red dot at the affected site. The red spot may be accompanied by itching, swelling, and a tiny pustule – a pimple-like blister at the bite. The symptoms are associated with an allergic reaction, which is reportedly mild in most cases.
The allergic reaction is related to the bed bug’s saliva. The bed bug secretes anesthetic-based saliva. The saliva serves two purposes – promotes blood flow and numbs the victim’s skin. Bed bugs are all about discretion. They spend a few minutes prepping the host’s skin prior to feeding. The extra effort is not to protect the victim from experiencing pain, but instead, avoid detection.
What Is A Bed Bug Infestation?
An infestation, in this case, is a high volume of bed bugs in a specific area. When the human habitat is overtaken by parasitic bed bugs, an infestation is often reported. While bed bugs are considered harmless, there are some risks involved in an infestation. Anemia, a condition characterized by abnormally low red cells. Many bed bug bites can result in anemia, but only in rare cases.
Another complication of a bed bug infestation, permanent stains on bed linen, mattress, and box springs. When the insect penetrates the host’s skin with its feeding tube, leakage is possible. Stains from fecal matter, dried exoskeletons, and blood can result in permanent damage to bedroom furniture and bed linen.
Do Bed Bugs Cause Parasitic Diseases?
No, bed bugs have not scientifically been linked to parasites or diseases. The species does not colonize like the ant and termite. Instead, the insect clusters in groups of 10, 20, 30, or more. The larger the cluster of bed bugs, the more severe the problem. Once the cluster reaches a specific size, an infestation is present.
To determine if your home is infested with bed bugs, we recommend a professional inspection. Our professional bed bug infestation targets high-risk areas like the host’s bedroom. The lead inspector will initiate the inspection in the host’s bedroom, focusing on the mattress, box springs, and bed linen.
How Can Non-Professionals Eradicate A Bed Bug Infestation?
Inexperienced individuals may successfully eradicate bed bugs living in the fibers of their mattresses, box springs, and bed linen. However, the same people will not successfully eradicate a full-blown bed bug infestation. This is especially true for first-timers who recently encountered bed bugs while traveling.
The bed bug is an aggressive insect species. When a blood meal is not accessible, the insect will do whatever is necessary to find a new host. Even when a host is living nearby, blood meals may be difficult to come by. This is especially true in a full-blown infestation.
