Shelby Bed Bug Control
Bed Bug Eradication Solutions in Richland County and Surrounding Areas
Have you or your family members been waking up with itchy bite marks? Bed bugs may be to blame. These small parasitic insects are about 5-7 mm long and are found in houses, hotels, college dorms, and cruise ships and can hitch a ride into your home on luggage, furniture, or clothing. Bed bugs feed on human blood and once they reach adulthood they feed on blood about once a week.
Carothers Pest Control offers effective bed bug control in Shelby and approximately within a 60 mile radius of Shelby. Call (419) 314-3214 or contact us online today.
Effective Bed Bug Control
We offer the most advanced pest control services for our customers. We offer a thorough inspection (additional fee), because bed bugs can be difficult to detect, which can allow an infestation to grow. Luckily, bed bugs typically remain in one room, only travelling about 15 – 20 feet during their lifespan. Since they are a lazy insect, they are content to lie in wait for their next meal, sometimes up to a year and a half.
Common bed bug hiding places include:
- Mattresses, box springs, and bed frames
- Bedroom furniture
- Carpeting and flooring edges
- Wallpaper and outlets
- Sofas and other furniture
Once our team finds this infestation, we get to work treating every crack and crevice in the room. We are very thorough to ensure a higher success rate. There is also no need to get rid of furniture because we treat it all! Since they are very resilient insects, you may continue to see some live bed bugs for up to three weeks after our service. Our treatment comes with a 90-day guarantee so you can have peace of mind that your problem was eliminated.
