| Bed bugs are unpleasant pests that are
mostly found in mattresses on the beds that people sleep on.
These can raid your house even when it is clean and you have
not practiced any effective preventive measures towards
their control. There is however a lot of false information
that is spread about the bugs, that you need to be on the
look out for to get the appropriate information.
Below are the 6 months on the bugs in Singapore:
The bugs are only found on beds
One of the most common myths on the bugs is the fact that
they are only found in beds. This is perhaps from their name
but this is not true because their infestation spreads wide
and fast in various rooms in the house. They normally have a
remarkable growth rate and in addition to the bed they can
also be found in floor cracks, furniture, wall cracks and
any other place that provides the ideal breeding environment
for the bugs. Incase you spot them; it is recommended that
you seek professional services to take care of them.
The bugs are invisible
There are very many people who think that the bed bugs are
invisible thus cannot be spotted with ease incase they ever
infest the home. There is no truth behind this because even
though they are small they are not really microscopic. The
offspring can be quite small but the adults' measure up to 5
mm which is similar to the size of the seeds that are found
in apples. They can also be easily identified as they had a
covering that is reddish brown.
The third myth that surrounds the bugs concerns the place
that a person resides in. There are some people who believe
that you can only find the bed bugs in the low income
neighborhoods or in houses where people do not practice
adequate hygiene. The truth is that the bugs cannot
distinguish between an exclusive and lousy neighborhood.
They can find their way to your house even when you are
squeaky clean especially if you have direct connection to
other houses back yard connections, sewers, pipes and other
things like this. A person can also pick them up when
They don't attack people who have metal beds
There are some people who believe that they cannot suffer
from bed bugs attack when they have metal beds. This is not
true as they can still thrive in cracks in the walls and
floors as well as other places in the house
A person can handle the infestation on their own
It is possible to take care of the problem temporarily on
your own. However if you want to do away with the problem
for good, you have to call in experts who know how to take
care of the situation.
Bedbugs are resistant to commercial pesticides
Another common myth about the bugs is the fact that they are
resistant to commercial pesticides. The truth is they can
grow resistance when the pesticide is over used by experts
normally come up with new systems to take care of them.
