Torrance Pest prides itself in having some of the best Torrance bed bug exterminators. Recently, we’ve seen a large increase in the number of bed bug problems in the Torrance, California area. We aren’t certain as to why the surge of Torrance bed bugs has occurred, but common explanations are increased foreign travel, the exchanging of second-hand furniture, and the close proximity of living quarters.
We think we can all agree that Torrance bed bugs are absolutely disgusting and nobody likes them. Bed bugs will make their presence known in a way that makes it impossible to ignore them. They feed on humans when they’re sleeping by piercing the skin with a stylet (basically, a long part of its mouth). It uses its stylet, which has small teeth, to saw through your tissue in order to find blood vessels. It will then suck your blood for about five minutes before returning to its hiding place. This area where the bed bug has fed will often swell up and itch quite a bit.
It’s not unusual to not notice the bed bugs themselves with your naked eye. They’ll usually hide in the crevices around your bed and lay their eggs in the seams of your mattress. In most Torrance bed bug cases we’ve dealt with, people don’t realize they have bed bugs until the bed bugs attack them in their sleep. An additional way to discover bed bugs, besides having a lot of bite marks, is to have blood or fecal spots on your bedsheets. Once you think it is feasible that you might have bed bugs you should not sleep in your home until it’s been treated.
