There are a lot of different pests that Cal termite can help to get out of your home. One of the worst ones and one that is going to require a skilled pest control company in Santa Barbara is bed bugs. These tiny pests can make their way into your life and wreak a whole lot of havoc. Bed bugs are the type of pest that is going to require a lot of attention and professional intervening in order to get rid of them.
The common bed bug and the tropical bed bug are the two species that are most commonly encountered in people’s homes. These insects have no preference as to whether they like a dirty or clean space as long as they have a food source, it is of no matter to them. Bed bugs feed on the blood of a host human that they have found. They are attracted to the warmth, moisture, and carbon dioxide that people’s bodies give off. Once they have found that source they are not going to go very far. They are normally spread to new areas via things like clothing, bedding, or luggage.
They are able to travel around a home on their own but they will usually not go far from the human source that they have picked out. They will make their home in the soft surfaces of places like beds and couches because of the access they will have to humans. They tend to feed at night because people are lying still for the longest amount of time then, but they are not exclusively nocturnal. They will feed whenever they need to, day or night. They will insert their proboscis and they will usually feed for about ten minutes. This feeding will be enough to sustain them for days.
They are an incredibly difficult pest to get rid of because of their resistance and toughness. Professional pest control companies in Santa Barbara, such as Cal Termite, will employ a variety of methods in order to rid your home of bed bugs. They may heat a room to over 122 degrees Fahrenheit because this is a deadly temperature to them. They may also use freeze treatments because it will cause them to go into a hibernation-like state and can then be vacuumed up. There are some cases where certain pieces of furniture are so infested that it is easier to throw it away than to try and get them out.
These are resilient insects that can spread quickly throughout a family home and other places where there are a lot of people moving in and out. Places like apartment buildings, offices, hotels, and schools have been known to shut down because of infestations. The best way to guarantee an extermination is to call in professionals as soon as they are noticed in your home. They will walk you through the process so that you can take control of the situation.
