“Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite.” It's a cute rhyme parents tell their children as they tuck them into bed. But bed bug infestations aren't so cute. These blood-sucking insects are highly resilient, and they can leave painful rashes and bite marks on their victims.
If you think you have bed bugs, you've come to in the right place! For more than 65 years, Senske Pest Control experts have been protecting homeowners' health and property by eliminating troublesome pests from their homes. Bed bugs are just one of those troublesome pests.
Bed bugs are small insects that belong to the same order that include the "true bugs" like stink bugs and aphids. They all have sucking mouth parts. Bed bugs are only about ¼ inch in length, usually about the same in width and are very flat.
Their feeding may cause irritation, and the irritation may become infected from scratching. They have been found to carry up to 28 diseases. New research by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has shown that bed bugs CAN transmit diseases to humans.
Bed bugs differ from many other blood feeding pests such as mosquitoes and fleas, because all bed bugs - males and females, young and adult - feed on blood. Once they have fed they return back to their hidden resting places. Bed bugs can continue to survive for many months without a blood meal - even up to a year or more!
