How Can Homeowners Identify Bed Bugs?
While a variety of insects create issues for Boise, Idaho homeowners, bed bugs are one of the more difficult ones to eradicate. For years, bed bugs were virtually non-existent in the United States as commonly-employed insecticides were highly effective at eliminating them. Modern regulations controlling the use of those pesticides resulted in a resurgence of the bugs, and they are now once again routinely seen in Idaho. Today, it’s all too common for homeowners to become hosts and experience uncomfortable bites while they’re sleeping.
