Checking For Bed Bugs: A Complete Guide

If there are bed bugs inside your home, you will know about them eventually. You might not, however, discover an active problem for months. This is a problem. To spot these pests before they become noticeable, look for the signs they leave behind. Common signs of bed bugs include blood stains, fecal droppings, shed skin, and eggs. You should also keep an eye out for these pests crawling around on or around your bed. An adult bed bug is ¼” long, reddish-brown, and oval-shaped. When engorged with a blood meal, these insects grow to be up to five times larger and take on a deeper red coloration.

I bought a 2nd home to rent as an income property. Once the deal was closed I started noticing dozens of cockroaches crawling inside the home & garage, some were dying but most were running around. I called Juan & 2 hours later he was at the home. It took him about an hour & half laying bait in the attic, crawl spaces and inside the nest he found in the garage. the following day, those live roaches were DEAD!. Juan returned 2 weeks later to treat the outside of the home a 2nd time. My renters are now moved in & they have not seen a single roach, dead or alive. I signed up for the quarterly service Got Bugs I Kill offers. The price is very reasonable, the treatment is very effective & I am extremely happy. Juan is very knowledgeable & super professional. I actually think I love him! Give him a call & he won't disappoint.
