UNDERSTANDING THE BED BUG PROBLEM ON LONG ISLAND
Bed bugs are notorious for hitching a ride with frequent jet-setters. As visitors come and go, enjoying the stunning beaches on the coasts of Long Island, it's not uncommon to inadvertently bring bed bugs from place to place. Although they were nearly eradicated in the early 1900s, these persistent pests proved resilient against pesticides, making them more difficult to prevent before secretly making a home for themselves undetected. Just like NYC, the close proximity of populated neighborhoods throughout Long Island makes it an obvious area for bed bugs to thrive and spread. By using our highly accurate and guaranteed detection and treatment approach, we work to put our client's minds at ease the moment they detect there could be a problem.
How do I know if I have a bed bug problem in my Long Island, NY home?
At first, bed bug bites may look like any other insect bite, especially when spending plenty of time outside in the summer. Bites differ, however, through their signature placement, often in lines in line or 2-3 bites in a row. Small, red welts are almost always very itchy and can swell or turn into to a larger rash. Even if you're not being bit, check your mattress and furniture for pockets of eggs or bugs nesting in seams and crevices. They often leave behind their shed exoskeletons or spots of blood.
