Bed bugs, as the name implies, feed on their hosts at night; when the host is a person, this takes place in the individual's bed. While bedbugs rarely post significant health risks, they are bothersome enough to warrant eradication. Bedbug control in New York can be contracted through DQ Pest Control. We also offer services for animal control and wildlife removal.
Bed bugs pierce the skin to gorge on blood. In this process, a small amount of the bug's saliva is deposited in the host (this fact alone sends many parents screaming to the nearest New York pest control company for an immediate solution). Reactions to bites can vary from one individual to another. Some experience little or no reaction. Others notice a small, red bump that looks similar to a mosquito sting. These tiny welts will generally appear on areas of skin that are exposed during sleep: hands, feet, face and neck, for example.
If you suspect you may have been exposed to bedbugs during an out-of-town trip, prevent infestation of your home by taking precautions. Launder all travel clothing in hot water (or water that is as warm as the fabric can tolerate). Inspect suitcases; scrub them with a sturdy brush, vacuum them and let them air out away from the house before you bring them in. If you fear you may have brought bedbugs inside, call DQ's Staten Island exterminating team for advice. We can identify whether there is a bed bug problem and treat the infestation before it spreads.
It is important to note that an infestation of bed bugs is not viewed as a reflection of poor housekeeping or hygiene. Bedbug control in New York can be affected by high occupant turnover rates. Establishments such as hotels, motels, apartments and hostels are often subject to transference of bedbugs, in spite of their best efforts. These establishments rely on businesses like DQ Pest Control to provide Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island exterminating. We offer customers free estimates and family-friendly service, so they can keep their own family-oriented atmosphere going.
Even the most pervasive and persistent pests are no match for DQ. Our New York pest control specialists are trained in the eradication of a variety of home pests, including but not limited to bedbugs, cockroaches, silverfish, carpet beetles, wasps, bees and other stinging insects, ants and more.
