Bedbugs in Kansas City are now common, and they aren’t something you should try to tackle on your own. Here are our top 10 reasons to call a professional pest control service like Milberger when you find bedbugs in Kansas City.
1. Bedbugs prevent sound sleep.
Not everyone is allergic to bedbugs, but if you are their bites can be miserable and make sleep all but impossible. And even if the bites don’t bother you, just knowing they are there is enough to keep most people awake at night.
2. Bedbugs are hard to see.
Their flattened bodies make it possible for them to fit into tiny spaces, about the width of a credit card. This means that it is easy to miss a spot they may be hiding when treating.
3. Bedbugs are easy to misidentify.
Adult bedbugs are very small, about the size of a tick. In fact, they are often mistaken for ticks or small cockroaches. Treatments for other pests will not kill bedbugs.
4. Bedbugs spread rapidly.
They hitchhike in on furniture, luggage, boxes, clothing, or other fabric pieces like curtains, blankets, and linens. Bedbugs do not fly, but they can move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings. This means they can infest new areas before you know it.
5. Bedbugs are prolific and multiply fast.
Female bedbugs may lay hundreds of eggs, each of which is about the size of a speck of dust, over a lifetime. Under favorable conditions, the bugs can develop fully in as little as a month and produce three or more generations per year.
6. Bedbugs in Kansas City can live a long time without feeding.
It can be difficult to know if a treatment has been successful because bedbugs can go 2-3 months without eating, or even longer in freezing conditions.
7. DIY methods simply don’t work.
Once an area is infested, they are extremely difficult to get rid of. While there are a few ways to kill bedbugs at home, bedbugs are becoming quite resistant to over the counter treatments. It is nearly impossible to completely eradicate every single adult bed bug, larva, and egg without specialized skills and equipment.
8. Professionals have specialized training and equipment.
Our employees have been specially trained to thoroughly inspect for the presence of bedbugs and to target treat the sites where they are located.
9. Professional pest control is more efficient.
Licensed technicians have the skills and methods to resolve pest problems much more quickly (and at a lower cost once you factor in failed treatments) than the average homeowner.
