Bed Bugs Treatment In Germantown, MD

Bed bugs are small oval insects that happen to live by sucking human blood and a few other animals. The most mutual bed bugs that affect humans are in mild or moderate climates and mainly in tropical climates. Bed bug infestations have become more common in the developed world in recent years. Bed bugs hide in cracks and crevices in mattresses and other structures such as bed frames, pillows and walls. People can see bed bug feces or blood on bedding or behind wallpapers. In underdeveloped regions, they hide in structures like clay houses and thatched roofs.

Bed bugs move slowly. They are attracted to their hiding places by body heat and carbon dioxide that people produce. They sting any exposed skin area, usually when people are sleeping. Before feeding, bed bugs are flattened and reddish-brown in color. After a blood meal, they are less flattened and redder. A feeding is completed in five to ten minutes, after which the bed bugs return to their hiding places.


The bite marks appear on the skin for a few hours to ten days after the bite. They can have any of the following:

• Only tiny holes
• Purple flat stains
• Red spots, protruding solid lumps or hives (welts), often itchy and with a tiny hole in the center.
• Bubbles

Bedbug bites can appear arranged in linear patterns or can be seen grouped. Older adults develop symptoms less often than younger people. The bite marks disappear about a week later. If people scratch the location of the bites, they can develop an infection.

People may be anxious about the difficulty and expense of getting rid of a bed bug infestation. They can also suffer from emotional distress, as they are eventually no longer invited to other people's homes or they can be rejected by family and friends or they can isolate themselves to avoid spreading the insects.


Doctors use to base the analysis on the form of the bite spots, but the diagnosis can be difficult, as the presence can differ. Nevertheless, most bedbug bites use to be larger than other bites (for example flea bites).
To confirm the diagnosis, doctors try to identify the bug.


Doctors administer creams that contain corticosteroids, antihistamines taken orally, or both to relieve itching and other symptoms caused by the bites.

We adapt our products to the target pest species

If you are concerned that you may have brought bed bugs home after your travels, you can do the following to prevent them from spreading to your home:

Leave your baggage in your bathroom or garage. Bed bugs do not like concrete or tiles and if they are present they are easier to detect in tiles and concrete than in carpets!

If you are very concerned, take your clothes off in the garage or bathroom and put them directly in the washing machine.

Wash and dry clothes at the highest possible temperatures.

As an added precaution for bed bug control, you can put your suitcase in the sun – away from home – for a couple of days to help get rid of bed bugs.

Vacuuming can significantly reduce the size of the bed bug populace, but only when they use to be visible clearly. It cannot assure total elimination. (Dump and wash the vacuum for avoiding relocating eggs to different rooms.)

Bed bugs must be exterminated using physical and, generally, chemical methods. Physical approaches comprise vacuuming washing articles and infested areas and of clothing or bedding and then drying them in the hottest dryer mode. In addition, entire rooms should be treated by professional exterminators when possible. Our professionals can heat the room to a temperature of 50 ° C or more or they can use various insecticides.
