We take our obligation to guard the residents of San Diego from bed bugs very seriously. Recently, we have been managing the increase in San Diego bed bug infestations. We aren’t certain as to why the number of beg bugs in San Diego are increasing, but it’s likely caused by more people purchasing used furniture from Craigslist and accidentally bringing these bed bugs home.
We simply cannot think of anyone who doesn’t mind bed bugs invading their home. Bed bugs will make their presence known in a manner that causes it to be impossible to ignore them. Bed bugs prey on humans when they’re sleeping and use a piece of their mouth, called a stylet, to pierce the skin of humans. It uses this stylet, which has small teeth, to saw through tissue to find blood vessels. The bed bug will then suck the blood for five to 10 minutes before returning to its hiding place. The bed bug will concurrently inject saliva into the body of the human it is feeding on. This saliva can create swelling and cause extreme itching.
It’s not unusual to not see the bed bugs themselves. Bed bugs will hide in small crevices, like the seams of your mattress, and only emerge at night. Typically, people don’t know they have a bed bug problem until they have been attacked during sleep. Also, if you see blood or fecal spots on your bedsheets, it’s best to call us quickly. When you’ve got a bed bug problem you shouldn’t even contemplate sleeping in your house.
