Bed Bugs Control

Bed bugs are oval and flattened insects, have 6 legs, and live on the blood of animals or humans, with a length of about 1/4 inch. They are reddish-brown in color, and turn reddish in color after feeding on blood, which can make them swell significantly. Bed bugs do not fly, but they can move quickly over beds, floors, walls, and ceilings. Bed bugs can mature in about 35 days. Then they live about seven to 12 months. This makes bed bugs difficult to remove without professional pest control company.

Bed bugs generally live on fabric, and they are found in houses, especially on mattresses, carpets, and sofas. It tends to adapt in cold and dark places and is attracted to the heat of the human body and the carbon dioxide that we release at night, and then it becomes active and feeds on human blood during sleep. Their flat bodies make it easy to hide in the layers of the mattress and make it difficult for us to find them easily unless inspected by a pest control specialist. Bedbugs’ infestation is not a sign of poor hygiene, you may find them in clean houses and hotel rooms, but the reason of the infestation is coming from outside, such as entering used furniture that carrying bugs or eggs, and then causing spread of infection.

They are parasitic insects, usually associated with bird nests, including pigeons, sparrows, and other wild birds. They have a transparent white color that change after feeding on the blood of birds or humans to reddish-brown or brown. Bird mites feed on human blood when there are no birds, and their bites can cause intense itching. When a bird leaves an infested nest, bird mites may enter the interior of the house or workplace, where they can spread the infestation. Identification of bird mites can be difficult because they are too small – less than 1 mm – means it is impossible to see them without a magnifying tool and they do not leave signs or spots.

beetles control

Beetles Control

There are over 300,000 species of beetles named by taxonomists. It is almost impossible to list all the species in the world and you don’t need to identify all the different types of beetles but you have to know the most common types of beetles that may invade your home or workplace, including:

- American spider beetles

- Cigarette or tobacco beetles 

- Carpet beetles 

- Dried fruit beetles 

- Elm leaf beetles 

- Drugstore beetles 

- Cereal beetles 

- Skin beetles 

- Ground beetles 

- Flour beetles

Beetles have antennae, a chewing mouth, and front wings like a shell. These wings are often very solid and look more like a shell than wings. The beetle folds the front wings so that it covers the hind wings as it is durable and waterproof and acts as protection against damage. Some beetles feed on stored grain and packaged foods, while others feed on garden plants, wood, or fabric.

In winter, seeking a shelter may bring the beetles indoors as some beetles spend the winter indoors to avoid cold weather. They may enter the house through cracks or holes around doors and windows. Beetles are mainly attracted to wood, furniture and pots of plants and tend to hide in these areas. Beetles are nuisance because they can damage food and property, clothing, plants, and furniture, and they are divided into three basic types that are common inside homes or offices:

- Fabric destroying beetles 

- Food beetles Wood 

- destroying beetles

Unlike most beetles, many beetles are beneficial. The most important is the ladybird that feeds on plant pests such as aphids and mealybugs.

Beetles can be difficult to identify because they come in different shapes, sizes, and colors. You may not be able to determine the type of beetle without getting help of a pest control professional but here are few things to look for to identify a beetle:

- The beetle has three areas in the body: head, abdomen, and thorax. It also has six legs.

- Beetles have two pairs of wings. The front wings are solid and look like a shell, while the second pair is folded under them. 

- All species of beetles have wings, but over time, these wings have become a protective outer covering the insects. This means that it is impossible for most beetles to fly, but there are very few species that can fly. 

- Beetles can also be distinguished from other insects by their mouth parts. The mouths of beetles are made for chewing and for self-defense, while the mouths of other insects are made for piercing the skin and sucking blood.
