Your bedroom is the place you rely on to get rest, though as soon as you see a creepy crawly scurry across the floor, up the wall or hiding in the corner of the room, game on because you are not resting until that bugger is a goner! So, what pests will you most likely find in your bedroom and what are the best pest control methods to ensure a peaceful night’s rest?
Who else might you be sharing your bedroom with?
The most common pests found in the bedroom will be those that like to feed on humans for dinner, such as bed bugs and fleas. There are also spiders, cockroaches and ants who like to pay a visit, always at the most convenient time, right before bed. Spiders, cockroaches and ants will access the home through any crevice they can find.
If your bedroom is right next to the bathroom, or has a master bath, you are more likely to see the German cockroach or the American cockroach roaming around, especially before bed due to their nocturnal nature. The bathroom provides a warm, wet and inviting environment for cockroaches which is why they may wonder into the bedroom looking for food such as hair, books and decaying debris, which are a part of their diet.
Keep in mind, cockroaches have also been known to trigger allergies with humans, making for unpleasant symptoms to further disrupt sleep.
It seems a little creepy that you may see a spider in the corner of the ceiling above your bed at night and then gone in the morning. It’s also common for people to get bit by spiders while they sleep, waking up with two red marks on their skin. The warmth and darkness of your bed tends to draw in spiders to cozy up next to you.
Ants in Arizona are determined to find an entry into a home because they are on the hunt to get some good grub. If your traveling to your bedroom leaving a trail of crumbs, or have food wrappers in your trash, they are coming for it.
Bed bugs Arizona is a big deal, so much so that there was a law passed on how to effectively handle a bed bug infestation! Just like a lot of people, bed bugs love to travel, and they will hitch a ride in your clothes or bags if you were someplace that was infested. They feed on humans and are nocturnal, providing the perfect time to feast while you are sleeping.
Those who have pets are at more risk of having a flea infestation. Fleas prey on warm-blooded mammals and will jump at the chance to get a taste of you. Check your pet often, especially if they sleep in your bedroom, or in the bed with you.
