Myth One: You Can’t See Bed Bugs
Though small, bed bugs can, in fact, be seen with the naked eye. Look for small, oval-shaped insects that are reddish brown in color and 3–5 millimeters in length.
Myth Two: Bed Bugs Only Live On Beds
Bed bugs feed on human blood, so they naturally gravitate to the bed. But beds aren’t the only places bed bugs are found. They also make their homes in baseboards, electronics, and other places in close proximity to humans.
Myth Three: Bed Bugs Can Only Be Found In Dirty Places
Bed bugs don’t care how clean or how dirty the environment is. They care if their food source – your customers – are near.
Myth Four: Pesticides Quickly and Easily Kill Bed Bugs
These pests have become resilient to many of the pesticides on the market. Heat treating them is the only extermination method that is 100% effective because they cannot survive in the extreme temperatures the affected area is raised to.
