Bed Bug Extermination in CA
One of the most sensitive issues any exterminator has to deal with is a California bed bug infestation. To many homeowners this is truly the most invasive pest problem imaginable. Even worse, bed bugs feed on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded mammals. These insects are mainly active at night, so they tend to bite people when they are asleep and most vulnerable, hence the term “Bed Bugs”.
What are Bed Bugs?
Most people who suspect they have a bed bug issue are extremely embarrassed because they mistakenly assume the infestation is an indicator that they or their homes are somehow dirty. However, bed bugs in San Diego come from many sources, including guests, used furniture, adjacent apartments and pets. These parasites will make themselves at home anywhere, clean or dirty, if they can readily feed on blood. Always remember that no matter how humiliating you think your infestation is, it is not worth risking your family’s health and safety on ineffective and dangerous home remedies. If you think that your home may be infested with bed bugs, consider the following:
Cailfornia bed bugs are resilient and sneaky. These little pests can survive in temperatures ranging from zero to 113 degrees Fahrenheit and live for weeks without feeding.

How Do you know if you have Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are small and hard to detect. These bloodsuckers rank near the top of the stealthy pest list. Often, homeowners only suspect a problem once they start waking up with unexplained, itchy bites. Bed bugs come out to feed in the wee hours of the night, when most of their victims are asleep. They are so small, sometimes the only way to determine with certainty if your home is infested is to call a professional. Exterminators use advanced detection tools and specially trained dogs to figure out where bed bugs are hiding in your home.
