“I have been with Brody Brothers for 5.5 years. Ari has been coming to my home for all this time. He does a great job. I hardly ever have an issue. He keeps us pest free which isn't easy living in the woods.”
We just celebrated another great birthday for America. We shared barbecue, fireworks and apple pie, but one thing we don’t celebrate is the resurgence of bed bugs across the country.
These tiny, persistent pests have troubled people for millennia. Until recently, though, bed bug infestations were a rare occurrence in the United States. Many people thought they had been all but eradicated. Then about ten years ago, it seemed that you couldn’t turn on the local news in any American city without hearing about a bed bug infestation. Exterminators who had never dealt with bed bugs suddenly got multiple calls per month to get rid of these tiny insects.
Unlike a lot of the other types of pest infestation, bed bugs have nothing to do with how clean your home is. Typically, homeowners bring bed bugs into their own homes when staying in hotels, dorms or someone else’s house. Bed bugs are an American problem through and through, showing up in every state in the nation. If you ever stay away from your home, or invite guests to stay with you, you could potentially get bed bugs.
As their name suggests, most bed bugs live close to the bed where their host sleeps. These tiny vampires suck blood from their hosts, causing itchy bite marks in about 70% of the population (the other 30% has no reaction to the bites). They are nocturnal and can infiltrate any type of building from an apartment to a single-family home, to an office building.
You can dramatically reduce your risk of bringing bed bugs into your home with a few careful tips:
“Over 10 year. Service is always top notch. They are always on time and take care of any problems.”
“We have been using Brody Pest control for about 40 years! We were always very satisfied by their service, always on time and very pleasant and knowledgeable.”
“We have been using Brody Brothers for around 5 years and we love that they are personal and they will keep coming back until a problem is resolved.”
