Hitchhiking might be banned but that does not stop the worst traveller of all from getting around. Whether it is across the world, across the country or across the street, bed bugs have always found a way to travel. As the world becomes more and more modern, travel is a part of everyday life. Canadians do it for fun or for work and sometimes even for a fresh start and this is how bugs thrive. High traffic areas like planes, trains, buses and hotels are a prime breeding ground for these bugs. No matter how careful you are, there is no telling when or where you might pick up a pest. Luckily, there is never a bad time to call Toodaloo for your bed bug removal.
The most common signs of bed bugs are bites. It is easy to mistake one insect bite for another but bed bug bites stand out. Time of year is a dead giveaway as mosquitos don’t tend to fly around during winter. Groupings are another identifying signal. Having three or four bites in one distinct area is common with an infestation. Spotting these reddish brown insects creeping and crawling around soft surfaces is another. Bed bugs are so named because they tend to hang out in areas where they are guaranteed an upcoming meal, while you are sleeping!
“How do I get rid of bed bugs?” There is no one answer to this question. In order to be effective, removal practices need to be customized to your unique space. Depending on your wants and the scale of your infestation, the experts at Toodaloo create a comprehensive plan to get rid of pests and keep them out. Chemicals are not the only way to banish bugs from your home or commercial property. Heat treatments help to treat the insect populations while imaging and detection tools help to make sure that every last intruder is taken care of.
