While every state has problems with pests, Ohio has one home invader that has proven to be quite a problem – bed bugs.
Bed bugs are small, roughly the size of an apple seed, and they are able to fit into very tiny spaces. This makes them difficult to see and get rid of. These pests survive by eating human blood, and they have lived among human beings for thousands of years. At one time, bed bugs were thought to have been eradicated, but Ohio residents have found this to be untrue, to say the least.
Bed bugs thankfully are not known to transmit disease, but their bites can cause problems. For example, some individuals wake up in the morning (bed bugs tend to feed at night) to find that they have severe bites that resemble burns. And because of the infestation of bed bugs within their home, the bites do not have the time to heal before they are fed on again. Others have allergic reactions to the bites, which can cause swelling and pain.
If you are an Ohio resident who is dealing with the presence of bed bugs, no doubt you want rid of this problem as soon as possible. The best thing to do is to call a professional Discover Ziehler – Pest Control who is trained in the removal of bed bugs. You can aid the professional by clearing out clutter within the home and making the bed bugs easier to spot and remove. You can try to vacuum if you wish, as this can pick up adult bed bugs, but eggs are usually glued in place, which makes them harder to remove. When you do vacuum, be sure that you immediately wrap the bag in plastic and remove it from the home.
In conclusion, residents in Ohio do not have to suffer from bed bugs. If you believe you have this pest in your home, call a professional exterminator today for pest prevention.
