Georgia Bed Bugs - GA Bedbug Extermination
Bed bugs have been around for thousands of years due to their great resilience. Once a common public health threat, the incidence of bed bugs declined to almost zero in the United States during the mid 20th century. However, the number of bed bugs in Georgia has recently resurged due to increased travel and access to remote parts of the world. Bed bugs are often associated with unsanitary conditions, but in fact, bed bugs can be found in the cleanest of homes.
Bed bugs are clever little travelers and infest residences by hitching a ride on items carried from an infected environment to their new home. Sometimes the homeowners visitors accidentally introduce bed bugs into the home. Those looking to save money by renting or purchasing used furniture can bring uninvited bed bugs into the home and suffer the added expense of trying to get rid of them.

They are nocturnal, like the dark, and hide in cracks and crevices while they await their next blood meal. The name bed bug is deceiving because these creatures can be found anywhere in the hosts environment. Georgia bed bugs have been known to hide in various places such as on head boards, on nightstands, in dressers, or in the curtains.

Homeowners can also look for tiny spots of blood on the bedding or mattress left over from the bed bugs feast.
The average life span of a female bed bug is 10 months. During this time, she can lay a total of 200-500 eggs. The eggs hatch in 4-12 days and babies or nymphs feed as soon as they can find a host. Under ideal conditions, nymphs can complete the five molts need to achieve maturity to adulthood in 21 days. Adults generally feed every 5 days but can live for 6-7 months without a blood meal. Bed bugs are difficult to eradicate. Currently, laws in Georgia prevent homeowners from using certain insecticides and pesticides due to the threat of harmful effects to homeowners health and well-being. Thus, professional GA bed bug extermination company is the most reliable and cost-effective method to rid homes of bed bugs.
