Prior to World War II, bed bugs were a common household pest. However, improvements in sanitation and hygiene and the invention of synthetic pesticides in the mid-1900s helped contribute to the near eradication of bed bugs. Nevertheless, bed bugs weren’t eradicated completely and made a resurgence in the late 1990s. Within a few short years, bed bugs had spread to all 50 states in the U.S. effectively reintroducing the need for bed bug control. Over the last five years, bed bugs have become a real problem in Southwest Riverside County, including Hemet, San Jacinto, Temecula, Menifee, Perris, French Valley, Winchester, Murrieta, Beaumont, Banning, Nuevo and the surrounding communities for Bed Bug Pest Control.

Bed bugs usually hide during the day near the sleeping areas of their chosen host. They tuck away in small spaces such as the tufts of mattresses and furniture seams and congregate closely together on the underside of unfinished wood in box springs, nightstands, headboard and footboards. Bed bugs are attracted to warmth and the presence of carbon dioxide. It is not uncommon for a resident to be completely unaware that they have bed bugs until an infestation is well underway, necessitating the need for professional bed bug control pest control.

Bed bugs pierce the skin with their mouth parts while they are feeding, leaving a telltale bed bug bite mark. Reactions to bed bug bites vary depending on the individual’s allergy sensitivity to the bed bug saliva. Bed bug bites may result in redness and painful itching in some, while others do not have as severe of a reaction.
