Why Bed Bugs Can Stick Around in Morris Homes After the Holidays

With the holiday season now in our rearview, and the friends and family that visited us to share meals together have returned home, we can all let out a sigh of relief. After all, the holiday season can be a stressful one, even if a lot of joy is spread. Leftover meals keep our refrigerators stocked up for days to come, and now that our loved ones have returned to their own homes, a lot of the holiday stress is relieved. However, it may not be in your best interest to relax just yet. With all the people that have traveled back and forth between Morris homes, bed bug infestations are a higher risk.

How Bed Bugs Get Into Your Home

Bed bugs are often carried from home to home during the holiday season, crawling off of clothing, luggage, and bags at each new stop. With family and friends traveling around during the holiday season, the possibility of someone bringing bed bugs into your Chatham or Madison home is actually quite high. If one or more of your loved ones have a bed bug infestation back home, they may have brought them into your home to start an entirely new infestation from just a few little bed bugs.

Identifying a Bed Bug Infestation

Bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed, which can make them hard to spot—and their eggs are even smaller! This means that bed bugs and their eggs can easily go unnoticed until your Morris County home has an extensive infestation.

A few places to check to determine if bed bugs are already in your home:

  • Bed bugs like to hide in sheets, blankets, and bedding, so be sure to check your bed for signs before going to sleep.
  • They may also be found behind wallpaper, in carpeting and electrical outlets, and under flooring.
  • Check in any clothing piles, and put clothes away to eliminate this area where bed bugs may hide out. 
  • Bed bugs are resilient. They often withstand winter due to their capability to spread from home to home. Additionally, bed bugs reproduce surprisingly fast, which can make them a much larger problem than many people realize.

Professional Pest Control Works Best 

When it comes to bed bug control, it is never a good idea to handle them on your own. They resist many DIY chemical treatments, and their fast reproduction cycle means that you could have more bed bugs in your Morris County home than you ever imagined. Complete eradication of bed bugs calls for the professional help of ChemTec Pest Control experts.

Our pest experts will treat your home with three extensive bed bug treatments to eliminate adult bed bugs, their eggs, and nymphs. Protect your home from bed bugs this year will a little help from ChemTec Pest Control!
