Bed Bugs

Bed bugs have extraordinarily small bodies with a brown camouflage, they lay eggs everywhere, and are easily transferred, allowing them to infest entire homes and businesses. Bed bugs, often found in mattresses, bedding, clothing, furniture, and more can be recognized by the musty odor they exude, the brown and black spots on infected surfaces, blood stains on mattresses and bedding from crushed bed bugs, or their bite marks. Bed bug bites emit a burning sensation and generally are several red marks in a precise line.

Ant

Carpenter ants are only one species of ants which could infest your home or business. They have large black bodies and typically nest in wood able to retain moisture and easily accessible from the soil like wood porch structures, window frames, and door frames. You have an infestation if you see swarms of flying ants in the spring around wood structures, these are the adult ants leaving the nest to find new territory. Another sign of a carpenter ant infestation is wood dust or small piles of wood shavings found close to older damp wood.

Milwaukee Bed Bug Infestations

Bed Bug Treatment MilwaukeeMilwaukee Bed Bug Infestations

Bed bugs are parasitic insects, and feed off of blood exclusively. The common bed bug happens to be quite fond of human blood in particular. These pests have been feeding off of humans for thousands of years. However, since 1995 there has been a dramatic increase in bed bug infestations, and the problem is the worst it has been in years. The city of Milwaukee has suffered a 53% increase in bed bug complaints. Once an infestation starts, bed bugs are nearly impossible to exterminate without professional help. For residents and business owners in the Milwaukee area, A-Landlords is here to help.

Bed Bugs in Your Milwaukee Home

There are some common signs to look for when determining if your home has become a host for an unwanted beg bug infestation. The first, most obvious sign will be bed bug bites. Small, itchy red spots, typically on the hands, face, and/or arms. If you have bites matching this description, it means you have unwillingly fed a family of bed bugs. Other signs are small dark stains on your upholstered furniture (e.g. sofas or reclining chairs) or mattresses, the presence of small white bed bug eggs, and live bed bugs. Since adults are dark brown in color and grow to about the size of an apple seed, many people report seeing these pests scurrying around their homes. In Wisconsin, bed bug infestations peak during the warm summer months. 

 

Bed Bugs in Your Milwaukee Business

Nothing can tarnish the reputation of a business like news of a bed bug infestation. A client or employee may unknowingly pick bed bugs at a meeting with your business, then quickly transfer them to their car and home. With quick action, the pest problem can be wiped out before spiraling out of control. The best way to decrease your risk of increasing a bed bug population is to wash all sheets in the hottest water available, for the longest wash cycle. Frequent vacuuming of infested spaces and covering upholstered surfaces with plastic or any type of polyethylene material can kill off any bed bugs currently residing in hotel mattresses or upholstered office furniture.
