Carpet beetles may not be the most well-known pest, but they are an important pest to learn about because of their ability to cause harm to our property. Carpet beetle larvae are attracted to the essential oils found in human hair, to get to the hair they will crawl across people as they sleep, leaving behind an irritating rash on the skin of some people. Carpet beetle larvae also damage items made from natural fibers as they feed on them, creating holes in clothing, blankets, and carpets. Adult carpet beetles do not cause any physical damage to property or people, but they do contaminate food sources by laying their eggs in pantry items like dry pet food, milled products, seeds, and other dry goods. To help protect your home from being invaded by these damaging pests we suggest the following prevention tips:
Caulk gaps found around windows and doors.
Make sure that screens are completely intact.
Routinely vacuum up pet hair and other dust and debris, remembering to vacuum underneath of furniture.
When storing away clothing and blankets made from wool or other animal fibers, store in airtight pest-proof containers.

People are constantly traveling- traveling to work, traveling to school, traveling to the shopping center and traveling across the country on vacation, and unfortunately each time you leave your home to travel somewhere there is a chance that you are going to come into contact with bed bugs and introduce them back into your Bowie, MD home. If bed bugs ever do make their way into your home, know that the professionals at American Pest have the services needed to quickly and completely eliminate them from your home. We begin eliminating bed bugs from your home by having our K-9 Bed Bug Inspectors target the areas of infestation, finding all the bed bugs that are hiding in your home. We then treat either with conventional methods using insecticides or by using heat treatments. When conventional methods are chosen our professionals perform initial treatments, they will then follow-up and make sure that the treatment is working, and if necessary they will perform targeted treatments to eliminate any remaining bed bugs. If a heat treatment is needed, modern equipment is used to safely treat your structure, eliminating any bed bugs that are present. We may also suggest the use of mattress and box spring encasements, to ensure that your mattresses and box springs aren’t ever again infested with bed bugs. Call us today to learn more about bed bugs and how we can successfully treat any size bed bug infestation!
