Pest Control of Tampa: Bed Bugs on Mattress

Tampa Bed Bugs

Pest Control of Tampa prides itself in having some of the best Tampa bed bug exterminators. Recently, we’ve seen a sizable increase in the number of bed bug problems in the Tampa, Florida area. Nobody knows for sure why there’s a surge of bed bugs in Tampa, but we think it can easily be due to the elevated trading of second-hand furniture and the closeness of living quarters.

The thought of bed bugs in your house is likely to strike fear in you. Bed bugs will make their presence known in a manner that causes it to be impossible to ignore them. Bed bugs feed on humans when they’re sleeping. Bed bugs use a piece of their mouth, called a stylet, to pierce the skin of humans. Bed bugs use this stylet to saw through human flesh to find blood vessels for feeding. The bed bug can then suck the blood of the human for 5 to 10 mins before returning to its hiding place. While it’s feeding, the bed bug injects a saliva into the human, which then causes swelling and irritation.

It’s often difficult to detect Tampa bed bugs. They will generally hide in the cracks around your bed and lay their eggs within the seams of the bed. You will be aware if you have bed bugs either from the bite marks and swelling, or from your bedsheets. An additional way to discover bed bugs, besides having a lot of bite marks, is to have blood or fecal spots on your bedsheets. When you’ve got a bed bug problem you shouldn’t even consider sleeping in your home.
