Overview of Services

Bed bugs are not something that one ever wants to have to think or worry about. Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed on blood. The most common area that bed bugs are found is in bedding and mattresses. Bed bugs like to live and thrive in warm environments, especially when dark. That is why bed bugs tend to live and procreate in mattresses, bedding, pillows, and carpeting.

Bed bug bites are usually undetected for a few days before one realizes that they have been bite one. Typically their bites turn red and begin with itching. This is a common symptom of most bug bites including mosquitos, and bed bug bites are commonly mistaken for other insect bites at the onset. However, there are specific distinctions that bed bug bites have over other insect bites. Typically they result in itchy welts and are commonly in sets of three. Bed bug bites can cause lifelong damages on minor children and infants by causing permanent scarring. Additionally bed bug bites are very painful, itchy, and usually require medical treatment in order to cure.

The worst part of a bed bug infestation is that they are very difficult to get rid of. Bed bugs are known to live on average for 8-10 months and can go months living without feeding. In order to cure bed bugs a professional pest control company needs to treat the affected areas, and surrounding areas.

Infestations are costly and a nuisance to not only the victim, but to hotel, motel, apartment, home, and rental home owners. Typically the owner of a rental facility or property has a duty to maintain a safe and habitable room that is free of pests.
Bed bugs are also commonly found in public transportation vehicles, public care facilities including schools, and even in furniture rented from a furniture rental company.

Hotel and Motel Infestations

 

One of the most common types of bed bug cases involve cases against hotels and motels. Hotels and motels have a duty to provide a habitable and safe living environment that is free of pests.

Further when a hotel or motel breaches their duty and fails to treat a room as required to ensure it is free of pests, the hotel or motel can be found negligent, as well as found having in breach of other laws and regulations placed on them.
