Bedbugs

I’m happy to announce McGrath Pest Control can now inspect and treat all structures for bedbugs. With the help of one of the most knowledgeable bedbug technicians in the city of Houston, we will detect your issues and develop a plan to eradicate all areas from bedbug activity.

Bedbugs may enter your home undetected through luggage, clothing, used beds and couches, and other items.  Their flattened bodies make it possible for them to fit into tiny spaces, about the width of a credit card.  Bedbugs do not have nest like ants or bees, but tend to live in groups in hiding places.  Their initial hiding places are typically in mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and headboards where they have easy access to people to bite in the night.

Over time, however, they may scatter through the bedroom, moving into any crevice or protected location.  They may also spread to nearby rooms or apartments.

Bedbugs are active mainly at night and usually bite people while they are sleeping.  They feed by piercing the skin and withdrawing blood through an elongated beak.  The bugs feed from 3 to 10 minutes to become engorged and then crawl away unnoticed.
