They feed on human blood and can be found in hotels, bedrooms, apartments, condos, planes, trains, and taxis. Any guesses? Well, although it may seem like a vampire situation, we’re talking about bed bugs here. These tiny, blood sucking insects are continuing to infest homes and businesses across Idaho including Boise which means bed bug control needs to take priority.
Although bed bugs are not known to transmit any diseases as they take in a blood meal from humans, they do cause many other issues for both home and business owners. Here are just a few of the concerns resulting from a bed bug infestation:
Leaves itchy welts on the skin for some
Creates an appearance of filth (although bed bugs do not favor clean or dirty homes, just humans)
Results in a negative image and reputation for businesses
Increased remediation and potential litigation costs for businesses
Can quickly spread into a major infestation sometimes requiring schools or other businesses to be shut down for treatment
Hard to treat and requires a pest control professional rather than any DIY treatments
So, what does one do in Boise when they have found bed bugs? First things first, take a deep because this is no matter for the Idaho pest control professionals at Sprague Pest Solutions.
