Bed Bug Treatment
Bed bugs are an increasing problem and are appearing in hotels, condos, single family homes, clothing stores, furniture stores, theatres, on public transit and many other places. At Pest Solutions, we are increasingly being called to help identify problems, and begin a Bed Bug Treatment.
Bedbugs 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, head boards, electrical switch plates, picture frames, even wall paper. 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.
They have not been found to transmit disease but should be taken seriously.
