Termites

Termites travel from one parent to another and destroy everything that comes in their way. They can cut through surfaces as hard as wood. There is a specific species of termites called dry wood termite that attacks wooden furniture. These termites get into low moisture areas, nest in it and start breeding in large numbers.

A physical sighting or sample of the adult bed bug or egg should be seen or caught to make sure that you have bed bugs. If you are unable or unknowledgeable to do your own inspection for bed bugs, professional pest management should be called to do a thorough inspection of your home. Bed bugs are known to be tiny specimens that can hide virtually anywhere, therefore, it will be very hard to see them on your own unless you know where you are looking.
