Landlords and Bed Bugs.

If you manage and/or own a building with tenants bed bugs should always be on your mind.  Residents come and go, but these tiny, nasty, creatures stay behind to bite the newbies.  Since bed bugs feed on blood they will feast on whomever is living in that apartment.  Just so you know, bed bugs can be seen with the naked eye.

If you rent furnished apartments bed bugs are found just about everywhere.  They are in mattresses, furniture, clothing, etc.  They enter through tiny cracks in walls and doors as well as ceilings.  Bed bug bites will result in your residents having swelling, itching, and redness.  Once you have been informed about this infestation you must act immediately.

In Chicagoland, landlords have learned to count on A Complete Pest Solution.  They are the Chicago area’s bed bug controller and eliminator.  Kurt will not only remove these nasty creatures, but give you tips on how to keep them away with his regular maintenance schedule.  Call A Complete Pest Solution today at (630) 464-1542.

What Do You Know About Bed Bugs?

You might think, hey I keep a clean house, wash my sheets regularly, etc.  There is no way I could have bed bugs.  Let me ask you this.  Did you travel over the holidays or early this year?  If you did then somebody else’s bed bugs may have hitched a ride home with you.  It happens all the time.  Now you have these nasty pests as well.

Bed bugs have no wings so they can only travel attached to something…like your suitcase or your clothing.  Sorry about this, but they feed on blood.  If you CAN see one it looks a bit like an apple seed.  A normal adult bed bug is big enough to be seen with the naked eye.  Also, never take something out of the trash and put it in your home!

Be that as it may, households that pride themselves in their cleanliness may become warm winter homes for bed bugs.  Don’t make the mistake of thinking you are immune especially if you have traveled recently.  Call Chicagoland bed bug exterminator A Complete Pest Solution and let Kurt free you of these pests at (630) 464-1542.
