Do They Carry Disease?
Do They Cause Structural Damage?
Cost of Damage
The damage this insect causes is to the people or pets it bites.
Signs to Look For
Bites on the body. Some people are very sensitive to the bed bug bite and some are not. The bites are recognized by the itching they produce and inflammation. These insects can leave blood spots from feeding on almost any surface (walls, linens etc…) and their fecal matter consists of digested blood, looking normally like a brown spot.
Where are they noticed?
Once in a home, bed bugs can be found in any crack or crevice. They are found in bed framing, along seams in mattresses, behind pictures and calendars, floor boards…you get the idea, almost anywhere.
If left untreated the population will simply continue to grow…the larger the number of bed bugs, the more blood required for feeding.
Bed bugs prefer warmer temperatures, which makes today’s homes an ideal environment.
Measuring approximately 1/8 of an inch, bed bugs have a red-brown color and a flat, oval shaped body. Nymphs resemble their parents but are smaller and slightly lighter in color. Active mostly during the night, bed bugs are ground travelers and are very agile climbers, easily able to move up and over obstacles such as walls and other surfaces. While they don’t have nests, per se, bed bugs will congregate in dark places where they hide during daylight hours. Females can lay up to 500 eggs during their lifetime and seek out secluded places (in and around beds, in closets, under other furniture, etc.) for laying them. The nymphs, when they hatch, can live for months.

Why You Should Hire
You want a company to show up quickly, on time, and get rid of the pests that are bothering you. That is exactly what we specialize in. We are a family owned company with over 22 years experience that relies on service, not sales gimmicks.
Our philosophy is simple: We strive for excellence. Every employee in our company has this memorized, How we define excellence: “Giving the customer what they’re paying for, NO short cuts.” It is that simple. Our mission is to show up on time and get rid of the problem. No hassles. You can ask anyone in our company what our motto is and the answer will be the same.
No sales gimmicks or tricks. We’re consumers like everyone else, and don’t like someone trying to sell us something we don’t need, so we don’t do it here. We will tell you what you need, not what we want you to buy. That’s why we don’t make our customers sign contracts or remain obligated. You can use us for one service or many. We leave the decision up to you.
We are a service based business not a sales based business. Show up on time and do what you’re supposed to do. I am amazed at how many customers don’t expect this anymore from the companies they hire. When a company is providing an excellent service then referrals and increased sales are a natural result.
