We take our duty to guard the residents of Arlington from bed bugs very seriously. Unfortunately, it seems that Arlington bed bugs are on an upswing. We aren’t certain as to why there is a surge of bed bugs in Arlington, but common explanations are increased foreign travel, the exchanging of second-hand furnishings, and the close proximity of living quarters.
We simply cannot think of anybody who doesn’t mind bed bugs within their living space. Unlike harmless spiders, bed bugs aren’t something you can just dismiss. While you’re sleeping, bed bugs come out to feed on you. Bed bugs feed on humans by piercing the skin with what’s called a stylet. Bed bugs use this stylet to saw through human flesh to find blood vessels for feeding. The bed bug can then suck the blood of the human for five to 10 minutes before returning to its hiding place. The bed bug will concurrently inject saliva into the body of the human it is feeding on. This saliva can create swelling and cause extreme itching.
It’s quite normal to not notice the bed bugs themselves. They’ll usually hide in the crevices around your bed and lay their eggs within the seams of the bed. In most cases, people don’t know they have a bed bug problem until they’ve been attacked during sleep. If you start to notice little fecal blotches or blood smears on your bedsheets, then you’ve likely been infested with bed bugs and you should call us immediately. You shouldn’t sleep in your home if you think that you’ve got a bed bug infestation.
