Greater Seattle Experiencing Bedbug Infestation:
Bedbug Infestations are running rampant in the Greater Seattle area. It is
unbelievable how even just one Christmas Season traveler could pack the
blood suckers to and from a destination. The Holiday Season brings mass
traveling and definitely the chance to bring home some unwanted souvenirs.
But not the kind the traveler wanted. A Redmond, WA family had flown to New
York City for Christmas. Think about how many people fly at this time of
year. Which makes it highly likely that bedbugs are being the most given
gift during this Holiday season. The Kirkland family got home and
discovered the beginnings of a huge bedbug infestation. The next morning
the children were complaining about being bit by something and scratching
like crazy. Dad checked the children’s beds and found dark blood stains and
a live bedbug in the creases of the mattresses. Bedbugs catch a ride on
clothing, suitcases, backpacks etc. The homeowner wasted no time in calling
AMPM Exterminators. A company the husband had used for other pest control
in the past. The professional Bedbug busters were ready to get the job done.
How can this happen:
The Kirkland WA family had gone on a 14 day vacation to New York City. So
there was ample opportunity to pick up the bed bugs. The little hitchhikers
caught a ride on luggage, tote bags and garment bags. The bed bugs got on
board at the hotel. The other source was in the car rental that had velvet
covered seats where the little vampires nestled in. The homeowner thought
about all the places visited during the vacation and now knew that this was
a huge problem and an experienced pest control specialist was needed to
take care of the problem. The homeowner already made the decision to call
AMPM Exterminators. The experienced technician spoke with the Kirkland
homeowner about the steps for preparation that needed to be take. Miss a
step and the whole process of bedbug infestation could be compromised.
Identifying a bed bug is first step to verifying the infestation:
The homeowner emailed pictures of the bug to AMPM Exterminators and gave a
physical description of locations where the pests were found. A big clue
was the dark blood stains found on bedding. The Dad learned that adult bed
bugs are brown/red, flat and wingless. Bedbugs are oval shaped, 4-5 mm in
length and can run fast. After dining on human blood the pests turn to a
deep red and will become engorged. An AMPM Exterminators technician
identified the pests to be bedbugs. Secondly, went over the required steps
needed to be taken to prepare for the bed bug exterminator service. The
preparation steps can take a few days before the extermination takes place.
If instructions are not followed may mean starting all over again.
Steps and measures to take for a successful Bed Bug elimination:

take before services could be rendered. Vacuuming needed to be done of
