How Did These Bed Bugs Get Into My Home?

When you think of hitchhikers, the first image that comes to mind might be of a backpacker holding his thumb out on the side of the highway. The bed bug is one type of hitchhiker in Lebanon that would prefer to remain unseen. Bed bugs in Havertown are tiny pests that are more than capable of catching a ride on your clothes or any other items you might carry into your house. Once inside, these insects will hide in obscure, out-of-reach areas. Bed bugs are nocturnal pests and emerge at night to bite you while you sleep; because their saliva carries an anesthetic property, you are often left helpless and unaware while they snack on your blood.

When you wake up to unexplained bite marks on your skin, reach out to Cunningham Pest Control immediately. Bed bugs in your home are tenacious pests that will quickly spread when left uncontrolled. Our local experts have been solving pest problems in Havertown for over 15 years and have the training to address big and small bed bug problems!
