$60.00 to spray up to a 2 bedroom apt for bed bugs
You can get bed bugs by sitting in a chair in a theater, restaurant,
train, lobby chair etc. If another person had bed bugs in
their home or apartment, there is a large chance that the small,
tiny bed bugs are hiding on their clothing. When these people
sit in a chair, the bed bugs crawl off their clothing onto the
chair. Then you later sit on that chair and the bed bug crawls
onto your clothing. Getting bed bugs is that easy!
When bed bugs first hatch, they are so small that you can barely see
them with your eyes. Look at a penny. A bed bug can be
smaller than Lincoln's nose on the penny. It is only after
they have grown for months that they grow large enough for you to
easily see them.
By that time, they have been laying eggs at the rate of 5 per
day. Females typically lay 500 eggs during their six to 12
month life span. Each of these eggs hatch in 4 to 12 days and
can become adults that are able to lay their own eggs within 30
days. With 3 months, you can have thousands of bed bugs.
One apartment unit can infest an entire building
Bed bugs are so tiny that they easily move from bedroom to bedroom
and from one apartment to another within a building. They will
move under the base boards in the room, under the dry wall to
another room or apartment. They can crawl through the cracks
in the fire walls that separate attached apartment buildings or
Sitting in the wrong chair can
mean getting bed bugs
They hitch-hike from the clothing of a child that goes to school and
lives in a home that has bed bugs. They crawl off the clothing
into the chairs or carpeting and then crawl onto another
child. That child brings the bed bug home in their clothing
and -- the next thing you know your home is infested.
Visitors can bring bed bugs instead of flowers or
wine for dinner
If your visitors have bed bugs in their home, there is a
chance that they may have a bed bug on their clothing. That
bed bug will crawl off their clothing and onto your couch or
chair. Then you later sit on that couch or chair.
The same thing can happen if you visit friends who have bed
bugs. You sit on their couch or chair and again you can take
the chance of getting a bed bug on your clothing that you bring
Call Cole Home Maintenance for Help
Cole Home Maintenance knows how to eliminate bed bugs. There
is no reason to be ashamed or afraid to ask for help. People
in million dollar homes with a cleaning crew every week get bed
bugs. You are not alone! The important thing -- is
that you call for help as soon as you find bed bugs. If you
are finding bug bites on your arms or legs, chances are you are
having a reaction to the bed bug bites. These bites may look
like small insect bites or a more severe reaction can start to
look like a rash.
