You can bring bed bugs in Kansas City, into your home, loft or apartment via many different ways. At work, doctors office, movie theaters, a cab, clothing stores, hotel stay, airline flights and many other means. They are almost endless since bed bugs are the greatest hitchhikers there are.
It takes approximately 13 days for an average bed bug infestation to double. So in the beginning the only evidence that may be presence is the occasional bite you may wake up with in the morning. After several months have passed, is when you start to see the inking on the mattress and the bed bug casings that occur in a heaving infestation. At this time the infestation is progressed and professional help is needed.
Remember just because you don’t sleep in the bed anymore does it mean the bed bugs will just die off due to starvation. Bed bugs travel long distance and will find you in another room or even the couch that you now use for sleeping. Once you move to another room or the couch, so do the bed bugs and now you have infested the rest of your home making it even harder to control the situation. Where before we may have been able to just treat the bedroom now we have to treat everywhere. The more areas you have to treat for bed bugs the more it will cost in the long run. Treating one room is totally different than treating an entire house. It takes more time, labor and equipment to treat an entire home than a single room.
If you live in an apartment or loft, just moving out and into another place doesn’t get rid of the bed bugs. Most people think if they move they leave there troubles behind. You only bring them to your new place. Bed bugs will be in your un-laundered clothing, bedding and in your shoes, books, dressers, bed frame and boxes. Just one unnoticed bed bug egg will start the infestation all over again.
Most people think that bed bugs are only on the bed hence their name. Wrong! Bed bugs migrate away from the bed once they have fed. You will find bed bugs in night stands, behind picture frames, in the headboard, bed frame, under carpet and in dressers. You will find them in books, shoes, clothing, closets, wooden hangers and the many cracks and crevices around your bedroom and home. Bed bugs will be everywhere and this is the reason most do-it-yourselfers fail. They fail to look beyond the bed and ignore all the other hiding places is the room or home.
