Bed bugs are tiny and hard to detect. Right here at Pest Control of Columbus, we take pride in protecting the residents of Columbus from bed bugs. It seems that Columbus bed bug infestations are on the rise. Nobody knows for certain why the number of beg bugs in Columbus are increasing, but it’s likely caused by many more people purchasing used furniture from Craigslist and inadvertently bringing these bed bugs home. We think we can all agree that bed bugs are totally unpleasant and no one wants them. They’re one of the pests that you really can’t ignore. Bed bugs feed on humans when they’re sleeping. They do this by piercing the skin with a stylet (basically, a long part of its mouth). It sounds disgusting, but the bed bug will use this stylet to saw through the tissue to find blood vessels. It will then suck blood for about five minutes before going back to its hiding place. This area where the bed bug has fed will often swell up and itch a lot. It’s often difficult to detect Columbus bed bugs. Bed bugs will most likely hide in small crevices and only emerge at night. In most cases we’ve dealt with in Columbus, people don’t realize they have bed bugs until they get attached in their sleep.
