When You Need to Call In the Exterminator! Are Termites And Bedbugs Wreaking Havoc In Your Home?

If you are having a problem with termites or bedbugs it’s time to call in an exterminator – plain and simple. These types of bugs are a real trick to get rid of and you’ll need a professional job done to make sure that they are 100% eliminated.


These bugs are approximately 5/8 – 3/4 of an inch in length and are a brownish color. Dampwood termites like to live in wood that has a lot of moisture. If you are experiencing a problem with your downspouts, gutters or plumbing and it is causing a moisture problem, you may end up getting termites if you don’t have them already. Also, if you have a home that has a wood exterior and snowdrifts are leaning against it, this can cause enough moisture to attract termites.

An experienced exterminator can come into your house and examine both the interior and exterior for any signs of termites. These insects need to be handled quickly before too much damage is done to your home. If you have any suspicion at all that termites may have landed on your property,  call immediately before it becomes a major issue.


These pests are approximately a quarter of an inch long and reddish-brown in color. They feed off blood and will climb into a bed to feed on their victims while they are sleeping at night. While these bites do not hurt when they happen, they can swell into bumps that cause itching.

If you suspect that you have a bedbug infestation you will need to call in a professional for an assessment and control. These bugs can be confused with swallow bugs and bat bugs and you’ll need to be sure exactly what you are dealing with.


A professional exterminator will treat the areas where the bugs are hiding. These insects like to live in cracks, which makes them harder to find. Even a small crack in a nightstand can lead to an infestation that can’t be controlled until that crack is handled and the bugs exterminated. This is really a job for an experienced pro since they have been trained to track down these bugs and get rid of them for good.

These are two common forms of insects that a company may be called in to handle on a constant basis. These pests can cause a lot of destruction: to both humans and to buildings. For both types of bugs you will need to call in an exterminator to make sure that they are properly handled. Don’t you deserve a good night’s sleep?
