Movies like The Mummy are funny entertainment mostly because we don’t really think that an old Egyptian plague is going to come rushing through the sands of Oakdale to torment and terrorize us, but sometimes the facts are scarier than fiction. Ancient Egyptian plague monsters are waiting in the darkest corners of Oakdale to feed on that which is most precious to you – your own blood and the blood of your loved ones! Centuries of survival practice have taught them the stealth they need to infiltrate even the most cautious of homes.
Not Without a Trace
Regardless of how much they practice their stealth mode, bed bugs cannot escape detection from a trained eye. Though small, their bodies are still the size of a flattened watermelon seed and can be seen by the naked eye as they crawl to and from their hiding spaces. In addition, if you inspect seems of cushions and mattresses you will see little fecal specs and blood traces. The blood traces will develop into rust colored spots of varying sizes and the fecal flecks look like dark pepper flecks scattered along the areas where they squeeze in and out of passageways and hiding places.
How to Kill Them
Now you have identified some of their signs, the question is how do you kill them? Waiting up through the witching hour with your night vision goggles will wear you out long before you get to the heart of the population. Bed Bugs reproduce quickly and can go long periods of time without feeding. With personal attack approach out the window, don’t reach for those cans of pesticide. Bed bugs behave differently than most bugs and do not groom themselves with their mouth. Most bugs will walk through over-the-counter products and end up ingesting them, but bed bugs just wipe those chemicals away. In addition to not ingesting the chemicals directly, a bed bug’s thick waxy exoskeleton coating shields it from the effects of even the nastiest chemicals.
