“Good night; sleep tight; don’t let the bed bugs bite!”
While bedbugs have been around with one name or another since ancient times, there have been times in history when they were more prolific than others. One theory for the popular rhyme recited at bedtime is that it comes from a time around the late 1800s when a mattress was kept up off the ground to avoid bedbugs and needed to be tightened up each day to keep the straw, feathers, or other filling contained within the ropes used to hold it all together. We don’t have to worry about sleeping “tight” like that anymore, but unfortunately, bed bugs can still be a menace.
In fact, in the past decade, bed bugs have made an aggressive resurgence, even though they had been practically wiped out previously. That is slowly changing as new innovations in pest control have provided more effective bed bug control measures. Here at Canady’s Termite & Pest Control, we want all our customers in the Fayetteville, North Carolina area to sleep soundly without bed bug bites, so we offer safe, effective bed bug control services along with a wide variety of other pest control services so that your family can be safe from the bites and other concerns involved.
There are two effective methods for bed bug control: pesticide applications and heat treatments. Since bed bugs are not restricted solely to beds, we’ll perform a thorough inspection of your home to find where they are hiding, such as in pillows, curtains, walls, and elsewhere. We’ll then determine which method is best for the situation at hand and will use both when necessary to eliminate your bed bug situation. Contact us today to schedule an inspection and to learn more about our bed bug control services.
