The Spooky Nature of Bedbugs
With Halloween being a week away, we’ve seen everything from clowns to aliens and zombies line the streets of our hometowns—and they are in every sense of the word, “scary.” However, there is one really frightening critter that people deal with all the time, and despite its size, just the sight of one is enough to make your skin crawl. Come join us today, as we explain to you just how spooky and terrifying the bedbug can be!
To really visualize how bad bedbugs can be, think of them as something like Pennywise from Stephen King’s It or the thing from It Follows. No, they won’t kill you, but bedbugs will follow you everywhere you go. Once you have them, they will be there, and thanks to their high rates of reproduction, they will maintain their presence so long as you sleep in the same bed every night. Now, the real creepy thing about bedbugs is that even if you take a leave and sleep somewhere else, there is a very good chance that these critters have hitched a ride in your suitcase or on your clothes, and will infest the new spot where you lay your head.
It is an understatement to say that bedbugs are hard to get rid of, but what makes matters worse is how they feed. Taking a page out of Dracula’s handbook, these critters will feast on your blood until there is none left. In fact, some species of bedbugs prefer the blood of some mammals over others, and actually need to ingest them to reproduce. Needless to say, you can expect countless pricks, bites, and open sores if bedbugs decide to camp out in your bed.
Luckily enough, you don’t need a silver bullet or a wooden stake to rid your home of these terrifying critters. Instead, one call to a trusted and proven pest control company is all you need to wipe them off of the face of your mattress, and anywhere else in your home where they may hide.
This time of year is the time to have fun in being scared, and not to be scared for the health of you and your family. One bedbug is all it takes to turn a great week into one riddled with sleepless nights and painful bites. If you spot one in your home, give Tri-County Pest Control a call as soon as you can, so you can go back to peacefully dreaming about all the candy you will steal from your kids after Halloween!
