Frequently Asked Questions
Bedbug populations can quickly increase because of the prolific nature of these pests. One female bedbug can lay between 1 to 7 eggs in a day and approximately 250 eggs in her lifetime. Coupled with the bug’s short life cycle, bedbug populations can grow significantly within a short time.
These insects’ ability to hide in cracks and crevices and go unseen for long time periods also give these parasitic bugs more time to reproduce and grow.
Finally, there is minimal public awareness surrounding the nature of bedbugs. By the time many homeowners seek professional intervention, the infestation rate has reached critical mass and is much harder to control.
Bedbugs are a year-round problem, particularly during times when people travel more. In the spring, bedbug populations increase due to the upswing in vacations during Easter and spring breaks from school. In summer, bedbug infestations increase because of different holiday travels locally and internationally. Even when traveling during winter, it’s possible to accidentally bring bedbugs back home with you.
Regardless of the month, it’s best to always be on the lookout for these pests and be cautious when traveling or bringing new furniture and decor into your house.
