Bed bugs have become a major threat for residential and commercial property owners in Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia. These pests went dormant in the past 60 to 70 years due to the widespread use of DDT, but resurgence has taken off since the late 1990s. Entomologists speculate that the reemergence of bed bugs may be due to increased international travel, the ban on DDT and a higher resistance to currently used pesticides. Bed bugs pose a significant risk and challenge to homeowners and businesses alike. That’s why American Pest has developed an array of bed bug services to help owners of residential and commercial properties in DC, Columbia, Bethesda and all of Maryland and Northern Virginia combat their bed bug problems.
