Having A Bed Bug Control Plan In Place Is Vital For Mobile Homes

Mobile homeowners must always have pest remediation in mind. It might seem like your place is free of pests if you don’t have any sightings, but don’t be misled. Many can creep around or enter without ever being spotted. In many cases, ruined structures or belongings are the only hints that something is wrong. Should you be dealing with a species that procreates fast, your troubles can be significant.

Folks often try their hand with store products or “do it yourself” approaches to eliminate pests. It’s thought that these avenues are financially more sound and just as potent as professional techniques. This is not true in any sense, and absolutely not with sneaky bed bugs. Find out what it takes to defeat bed bugs and how EnSec can support your deterrence plans. 

Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?

Bed bugs are on a continual hunt for blood because it’s what they survive on. It’s a misconception that they are attracted to dirt. These pests are prominent in any area where animals and humans dwell. It’s not unusual for them to be in pastures, airports, hotels, offices, and schools. You may not notice them when they crawl onto your clothes or bags. If they follow you to your residence, they’ll wander off to:

  • Wood trim
  • Wallpaper
  • Flooring
  • Appliances
  • Electronics
  • Fabrics
  • Mattresses
  • Upholstery
  • Couches

Three strong indicators of a bed bug infestation are odors, stains, and bites on your skin. Your domicile can get musty when these critters are around. Surfaces and fabrics will be marked with reddish-brown splotches, blood drops, and brown or black fecal smears and particles. These grains may be powdery in texture. Last but not least, you won’t miss the reddened patches of huddled welts on your body. They will feel very itchy. 

You can distinguish bed bugs from other insects by looking for certain features. They are akin to apple seeds, being reddish-brown and 0.25 of an inch long. Two antennas and six legs are along with their globular frames. Their heads are smaller than their tails, and they have an oddly shaped midsection. Pearly white eggs will be spread about, in which translucent young hatch.

Why Is It A Bad Plan To Use Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Bed Bug Tricks?

Commercial products and “do it yourself” tools for bed bugs generally cost between $20.00 to $90.00. You’ll have to make multiple purchases because these items will only kill groups of insects at a time. To conquer an infestation, every adult, nymph, and egg has to be eliminated. Since the pests are so tiny and can hide in numerous hard-to-reach places, you won’t be able to scoop them all. In addition, there are hazards associated with solo tactics: 

  • Dry Ice: The carbon dioxide that emits from dry ice can be lethal to breathe in significant amounts. You could also get chemical burns touching it.
  • Rubbing Alcohol: Respiratory illnesses are tied to this substance, which also consists of flammable ethanol.
  • Diatomaceous Earth (DE): Inhaling or breathing near this powder is quite dangerous, even though it can quickly dry bed bugs out.
