Bed Bug Treatment in Alabama

Most people fear a bed bug infestation, though they may not know much about them. They've been around for eons and have been biting humans since we've been on the planet. Researchers found a fossilized relative of the bug that they say walked the earth 11,000 years ago. These creatures are extremely resilient and sneaky. They get their name because they hide near areas where people rest and exhale carbon dioxide, then swoop in and feed as their prey sleeps. They can eat up to six times their body weight in blood in a single feeding, which only takes a few minutes.

Get Professional Bed Bug Control to Eliminate these Pests

Many of us grew up hearing the nursery rhyme about blood-sucking creatures that prey on us in our sleep and that infestations were associated with filth. In the early 1900s, these pests were common, but with the help of heavy-duty pesticides, they disappeared almost entirely between the mid-1950s and late '90s. After 40 years of barely seeing them, we weren't prepared. Their populations came roaring back, and preconceptions aside, they targeted even the cleanest properties. They've been spotted in college dorms, movie theatres, airplanes, hotels, and hospitals. A figure from the National Library of Medicine says more than a third of pest-management companies responded to bed bug infestations in hospitals in recent years.

Signs of Bed Bugs

Wiping out a bed bug infestation is much easier when the invasion is in its early stages. The problem is, realizing you have an infestation isn't always an easy task. Their bites, described as small red groupings of itchy dots on exposed skin, can be confused with bites from other bugs, especially mosquitoes, and, in some cases, resemble a heat rash. These bugs aren't easy to identify since the small, brown, or red insects can resemble carpet beetles and other small bugs. The best way to determine whether bed bugs have invaded is through the signs they leave behind, like shed skins, dark blood stains on sheets, and a musty smell.

Do You Need To Hire A Professional?

There are over 300 EPA-approved products on the market aimed at wiping out bed bugs, and unsuspecting home and business owners hoping to get rid of the bugs as fast as possible often get a hard lesson. Over-the-counter products have proven futile, and the delay in proper treatment can lead to exponential growth. They have become resistant to certain pesticides, including pyrethrins and pyrethroids, the most commonly-used compounds for treating pests. The fact is that bed bugs are difficult to eradicate and require professional intervention.

That's why it's important to contract with an expert who uses professional-grade products. At Defense Pest Solutions, we have years of experience and an unmatched dedication to our customers. Our family-owned local company is focused on customer satisfaction, and in our industry, that means ensuring pest problems are taken care of the right way: thoroughly, quickly, and affordably. We also ensure the problem doesn't resurface so our customers are comfortable and confident in their homes and businesses. Contact us today, and let us return you to a peaceful night's sleep.

Jason and his team are first class. We bought a new house and called him. Their professional manner and practices have been a welcome addition to our new house. I know that if I ever have a problem that they are just a phone call away. Very happy with our pest control and even happier with their attitude toward their customers.

I needed a termite inspection done for the closing of my house for sale in Athens. While I was living in Tennessee. I called and they responded right away. They got it done the next day. They were very professional & did everything by phone & emails. I was very impressed. I highly recommend this business.
