Madison County Termite and Pest Control will eliminate Bed Bugs just like any other pest. However, even for pest control companies, the Bed Bug can be the toughest bug to eliminate. The main reason is because Bed Bugs have become resistant to pyrethrum based pesticides. This coupled with the fact that it has the best reproduction rate make it one of the most difficult and expensive bugs to treat. Over the years inexperienced or under educated pest control operators have given the Bed Bug a bad reputation. Luckily for you, we have several years of exclusive experience in all methods used of detecting and eliminating Bed Bugs.
Identify Bed Bugs
You can easily identify a bed bug due to its distinctive brownish-red color as well as an ovular body. Additionally, adult bedbugs are generally around one-fourth of an inch lengthwise, and its width is around one-eighth of an inch. On the other hand, the baby bed bugs are pretty different in appearance as they are tiny and off-white in color. However, when they mature, they tend to shed several layers of skin till they assume the typical reddish-brown shade.
You can visually hunt for bed bugs at night with a flashlight as that’s the time when they usually feed. You can find bed bugs in the corners or dark areas like, behind the wallpapers, sofa seams, picture frames, cracks and crevices in the frames of the bed, under the bed covers, couch, and even blankets. You can also find them in your baseboards, drawers, television, sleeping bags, clocks and so on! Bed bugs also emit a pungent odor so, if you smell an unusual odor anywhere in the house, you can try searching that area.

What causes Bed Bugs
There is a common misconception that bed bug infestations are as a result of filth. Bed bugs are not attracted to decay. These insects can survive in any environment, provided they have access to their source of food. Understanding this is important in averting a bed bug infestation, and is what we would like to remind you of here at Madison County Termite and Pest Control.
There are a number of ways on how these parasites find their way into the house; therefore, bed bugs causes can be different. In most cases, these insects come from traveling to places that have them (hitchhiking). Bed bugs can crawl through damaged walls, old outer walls of the house, and even slip through cracks. Their small size and body shape enable them to penetrate into some of the smallest cracks or holes. They can go without food for quite a long period of time. As such, long travels aren’t an issue to them.
