  • Bed Bug On Skin
    Bed bugs are small, flat, oval-shaped insects. They do not have wings and rely on humans to carry them from one place to the next. Bed bugs are a reddish-brown color and can be between 1 and 7 millimeters. They feed on blood from humans or animals, and they’re most active at night, feeding on their victims while they sleep.
  • Bed Bug Feeds
    The growth and development of C. lectularius is optimal when it feeds on humans. Bed bugs are active at night and generally hide during the day. After mating, females lay white, oval eggs (1/16-inch long) into cracks and crevices. An individual bed bug can lay 200-250 eggs in her lifetime. The eggs hatch in about 6-10 days and the newly emerged bed bug nymphs seek a blood meal which could be you!
  • Bed Bug Bites
    Some people will not experience a reaction to a bed bug bite at all. Those that do experience symptoms of a bite are likely to experience one or more of the following: a bite with a red, swollen area and a dark red center bites in a line or grouped together in a small area
    blisters or hives at the bite site.
  • Life Cycle Of A Bed Bug
    Bed bugs can go without feeding for 20 to 400 days, depending on temperature and humidity. Older stages of nymphs can survive longer without feeding than younger ones, and adults have survived without food for more than 400 days in the laboratory at low temperatures.

Where Do Bed Bugs Come From? Bedbugs are most often found in hotels, hostels, shelters, and apartment complexes where lots of people come and go. Because bedbugs hide in small crevices, they can hitch a ride into your home on luggage, pets, furniture, clothing, boxes, and other objects. Bedbugs are found worldwide, but are most common in developing countries. Once rare in North America, they may be on the rise due, in part, to increases in international travel. So forewarned is well-warned!

 

The Benson Pest Management Methods To Exterminate, Remove and Control Bed Bugs

Vacuuming and De-Cluttering

Benson Pest Management of Maine will use hepta vacuuming which can eliminate some bed bugs when concentrated in a specific area. It also facilitates insecticide penetration of cracks and crevices. It's possible if you attempt to do this with an improper vacuum cleaner it also can be infested. De-cluttering of objects laying on the floor and furniture eliminates potential hiding places (especially items stored under the bed).

 

Mattress And box spring encasements

These can be used to salvage beds (or protect new beds) that may be infested. High quality bed bug-proof encasements will seal in bed bugs, which eventually die, and keep additional bed bugs out.

 

Laundering

Suspected infested clothing must be washed on the hot cycle and then put in the dryer at the high setting for 30 minutes. Other non-washable objects can be put in the dryer at high for 30 minutes. Benson Pest Management can perform this procedure for you to guarantee bed bug extermination.

 

High Temperature and Freezing

Certain items can be placed in plastic bags and placed in a high temperature environment, above 120°F. Heat-sensitive objects can be placed in an environment with a temperature below 32°F for several days. Benson Pest Management can perform these procedures for you to guarantee bed bug extermination.

 

Insecticide

The toughest life stage of bed bugs to kill is the egg stage. In direct spray tests only a very few products cause high mortality rate on the initial application. Benson Pest Management insecticide application will not only kill on direct contact, but will leave a residue that continues to kill bed bugs after it dries. Please note that the most effective insecticides that will exterminate bed bugs cannot be used by non-professional consumers. Benson Pest Management will systematically treat all rooms that have been infested which means all cracks and crevices around windows, outlets, blinds, pictures, posters and clocks on walls, baseboards, under edges of carpets and any other crevices or void areas in the room.
