Distinguishable by their brown color, the common bed bug (Cimex lectularius Linnaeus 1758) can lay 12 eggs per day! This makes professional bed bug treatment critical. Delaware Pest Control follows a strict bed bug checklist protocol including: inspection, instruction for preparation, treatment, and a 7-day follow up. In addition, we educate the client for ways to prevent bed bugs from coming back.
