Guide To Avoiding Bed Bugs In Barco, NC

When bed bugs invade your Barco home, they bring a variety of health risks. Along with being frustrating and creating an unsettling environment, bed bug infestations can also lead to skin damage (from excessive itching), insomnia, and anemia (in extreme cases).
 
The best way to avoid bed bug infestations is to understand how they get into your house. As talented hitchhikers, these small, slow-moving pests can travel the world by riding on belongings from place to place.
 
That’s why transportation hubs like airport terminals and bus stations can be high-risk areas for incurring a bed bug infestation. If you leave your bag on the ground for too long, bed bugs may crawl onto it. Plus, bed bugs can migrate from bag to bag when given enough time, so be careful about where you set your luggage down. Be sure to check your luggage for bed bugs before bringing it into your house.
 
Another way to easily bring bed bugs into your home by accident is purchasing secondhand furniture. Just because it seems like a great deal doesn’t mean that mattress, couch, or refrigerator won’t be the beginning of a nasty bed bug infestation. Check furniture for signs of bed bugs like rust-colored rings or tiny blood droplet stains before bringing it into your home.
 
If you do wind up with bed bugs, trying to get rid of them yourself will only allow the infestation to linger on. To avoid the health concerns of a prolonged infestation, call Albemarle Termite & Pest Control and find out about our complete bed bug treatments.

First Signs Of Termite Infestation In Barco, NC

You’ve probably heard about how much damage a termite infestation can bring to your home, but you may not have the full picture. Termites can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage on your property, but they usually take 12 to 18 months to accomplish that much destruction.
 
If you can catch an infestation early, you might have a chance of getting rid of it before you incur costly damage. You probably won’t see the worker termites, as they’re usually hiding in the soil or within wood, but you’re likely to witness the following signs if you know what to look (or listen) for:

  • Mud tubes on your outdoor walls near the soil

  • Winged termites flying in large groups on warm, muggy days

  • Difficulty opening and closing doors and windows 

  • Soft clicking noises in the walls made by soldier termites

If you do witness these signs, it’s time to call the pros. There is little you can do on your own to get rid of a termite infestation, but Albemarle Termite & Pest Control has the eradication solutions you need to take care of an infestation before it costs you a lot of money. And we can put preventative measures in place to ensure that you’ll never have to worry about a termite infestation again.
