Action’s Solution for Bedbugs in Phoenix
Eradicating bed bugs is not an easy task. These troublesome insects have evolved to become very resilient. The tiny creatures are the source of immense stress and discomfort in so many homes. Chemicals that were once efficient in killing these insects no longer do the trick. Their evolutionary survival has allowed them to spread globally, making it hard for effective control measures. Bed bugs can multiply in numbers from just one female quickly. In only a few weeks, a single bed bug can give rise to hundreds. These insects can quickly overrun your home and make it uncomfortable or inhabitable for you. Their stubborn nature requires the intervention of a professional bed bug control service that will guarantee immediate, thorough, and safe extermination.
Signs of Bed Bug infestation
It may be difficult to diagnose a bed bug infestation, but it is not impossible. You may not notice bed bugs until they begin to feed on you. Bed bug bites usually leave itchy reddish marks on your skin, which will either be in straight or zigzag lines. Their bites can be very irritating and uncomfortable despite not carrying or spreading disease. Their presence on your mattress will also cause disturbed sleep as they tend to feed at night. A musty smell is an indicator of an infestation. A considerable number of bed bugs will release a particularly pungent pheromone smell that is easy to pick up. This smell usually resembles the one you will find on a wet rag or damp towel.
Once in a while, bed bugs leave behind trace evidence of their presence. This evidence can be spotted by looking out for their shed skin, waste, shells, or exoskeletons. You may also observe spots of blood on your beddings, indicating an already feeding infestation. Homeowners should not ignore these indicative signs. If you find any of these signs, call Action Pest Solutions and enlist our assistance.

Treatment for Bed Bugs
Routine cleaning is no longer as effective in eliminating bed bug infestations. Depriving them of food in a bid to send them away from your home does not work here. Exterminating bed bugs is a challenging endeavor that requires professional intervention. This treatment should be done as soon as an infestation is realized.
Thermal remediation is currently the most effective form of bed bug treatment. This chemical-free technology makes use of intense heat to kill the infestation. This heat can kill bed bugs across all their life stages, whether adult or egg. It has a proven track record and is more effective than chemical measures, which are no longer effective against these pests.
These stubborn insects intelligently hide in mattresses. They find mattresses ideal as they are closer to their feeding source, human blood, and can easily stay undetected as they reproduce. Our experts recommend that an infected bed is disposed of as treatment is usually tricky. If this is not a consideration, it should undergo heat treatment for a few hours. This treatment could be done using heating equipment. Once treated, it is recommended that you fit a zip-up mattress cover to avoid infestation and keep living bed bugs from escaping. As you maintain your mattress’ cleanliness, remember to clean your bedding and use heat where possible similarly.
Bed bugs may also inhabit damp fabric and clothing. We recommend that all clothing material be washed with detergent or bleach (where possible) and hot water. Sealing the clothes in bags after cleaning works to prevent re-infestation. It is recommended that you take the same actions for carpets, rugs, and curtains.
How do bed bugs spread?
It is just a myth that bed bugs prefer and thrive in unclean environments. Like other living creatures, they inhabit locations that provide them with shelter and sustenance in the form of moisture and darkness. This nature makes it possible to find them even in newly acquired furniture. They are mobile, which allows them to spread from location to location. They latch onto clothes, garments, hair, and sometimes pets, which, when relocated, carry these insects with them.
