Identifying And Controlling Bed Bugs In Auburn, Kansas
We all hear a lot about bed bugs, how they are everywhere, how you constantly have to be on the lookout for them, and how to protect yourself from becoming their next meal. But, do you truly know what a bed bug looks like, if you had to pick them out a line-up, could you?
The most important way to protect yourself and home from bed bugs is to have a clear understanding of what a bed bug looks like! Adult bed bugs are the stage that is most easily seen by the naked eye and that is most easily identifiable. Adults grow to about 3/16th of an inch in length and are a flat-oval shape (think apple seed), have six legs, and are wingless. Before having a blood meal they are brownish-red in color, after feeding they will turn redder in color. Both the egg and nymph stage are very small and very difficult to discover unless you are a trained professional. Their eggs are only about 1mm in size and are whitish in color; their nymphs are no larger than a pinhead.
If you see or just think you see adult bed bugs in your Auburn home or business it is important to contact the bed bug professionals at Schendel Pest Services and get the immediate help you need to completely eliminate them from your property.
