Spot Bed Bugs

If you’ve recently gone on vacation or brought home used furniture, you may be at risk for bed bugs. Jamaica Plain MA residents who suspect they have a bed bug problem should contact Yankee Pest Control.

Bed bugs are small oval insects that live off the blood of humans and animals. Before feeding, bed bugs have flat bodies, allowing them to hide in folds of fabric. After feeding, their bodies swell. They leave behind tiny, rust colored steaks of excrement on bed sheets and nearby surfaces. Their bites usually go unnoticed at first, but over time will turn into patterns of itchy red marks. A line of red bites is a definite indicator of bed bugs.

The most effective method of dealing with bed bugs is through heat treatment. Yankee Pest Control will set up heating equipment that will quickly raise the temperature of your home. While this temperature is intolerable to bed bugs, Jamaica Plain homeowners do not need to be worried about their household items being damaged. In addition to heat treatment, we also offer mattress encasements and ongoing monitoring services. You can take preemptive action against further infestation.
