Damn BedBugs, they are sneaky and will hide in any hole or crevice. Click on the picture and see if you can find the bedbugs in the hole. What should you look for if you think you have an infestation:
- Red or black spots on bedding material.
- Adult Bedbugs are the size of a apple seed, babies are much smaller and see through.
- Smell of iron (result of blood).
- Don’t just look at the bed check the cracked paint, wallpaper, any crevices in wood or holes in computer desk.
If you’re not sure, don’t waste time. The longer you wait the faster the problem can get out of hand. Check the following site http://www.pestworld.org for more information.
Well I have to say you learn a lot here in the field, when checking a waterbed it is important to completely take the bed apart. Every square inch of the bed needs to be taken apart and carefully inspected for bugs.
So lesson learned – you must be diligent in your endeavor and track down those pesky BedBugs. This picture above is the plywood that holds up the mattresses or waterbed. Check out All Things BedBugs
Two things caught my attention about this article “Tree falls on home and kills woman“.
- This article is from Illinois, generally not known for big termite infestations.
- You don’t often hear about deaths related to termites, mosquitoes or ticks maybe but not termites.
I don’t always get creeped out with pests but BedBugs do it for me. I think about accidental infestation, maybe a lone bedbug falls into a pocket or shoe and I bring it home.
Take care traveling, check out the room and if you think you see something contact management. Don’t bring in used furniture without looking it over really well. Check out our webpage http://www.callprobest.com/bedbugs
Every once in a while we get a call from someone thinking they have termites. The picture is a mud dauber wasp, the female constructs this nest out of dirt. Shen then paralyzes a few spiders and deposits an egg within – providing lunch for her offspring. Mud daubers don’t generally sting or defend their nest but that isn’t a reason to harass them because they can sting if provoked.
Just wait for the baby wasp to hatch out or use a shovel to dislodge the mud nest.
