Bed Bugs Are An Increasing Problem

Bed bugs are appearing in hotels, condos, single-family homes, clothing stores, furniture stores, theatres, public transit and many other places. At Pest Solutions, we are increasingly being called to help identify problems, and begin a Bed Bug Treatment.

Bed bugs grow to be 6mm long, are oval-shaped and appear flattened when viewed from the side (think apple seed size/colour). Their colour ranges from translucent yellow (baby aka nymph) to dark red-brown (adult).

They can hide behind baseboards, headboards, electrical switch plates, picture frames, even wallpaper. Once fertilized, a female will lay 5-6 eggs per day (That’s 300-500 lifetime). The eggs hatch into a nymph in 10-14 days.

The bed bug will pass through 5 nymphal stages (called instars) before reaching adulthood. From egg to adult takes 6-8 weeks on average.

Bed bugs are not known to transmit disease; however, you need to take them seriously.

Bed bugs can be an annoyance because their presence may cause itching and loss of sleep. Sometimes the itching can lead to excessive scratching that can sometimes increase the chance of a secondary skin infection.

Vancouver Monthly Pest Control Services

We work closely with strata and property managers across Vancouver to deter pests and critters from settling into this port city port. With the water’s edge around a large portion of Vancouver, rodents naturally are drawn to the shoreline and become a regular habitant and nuisance.

North Vancouver Monthly Pest Control Services

North Vancouver is no stranger to rodents, critters, and wildlife. They attract the rats and mice from the port and proximity to water and then the wildlife can naturally find themselves attracted to the smell of city life and the comforts of warm attics and garages.

Squamish Monthly Pest Control Services

With the abundance of wilderness all around Squamish and also the port terminal located on the district’s border edge. Rodents like rats, mice, raccoons, and wildlife find warmth from the winter in crawl spaces, attics, garages, and cellars.

Richmond Monthly Pest Control Services

Richmond is a lovely urban environment that supports rodent lifestyles. Being a port city, the rats and mice easily find shelter, warmth, and food supply from local residents, and garbage cans.     

Coquitlam Monthly Pest Control Services

Seeing the trend here? Another port city with easy access to garbage bins and warm dry shelter away from the consistently wet outdoor conditions that naturally occur in our region.
