Greenville SC is the largest city in Greenville – Spartanburg- Anderson – Combined Statistical Area, or otherwise known as The Upstate. It has a population of more than 68,000. It has a humid subtropical climate with four seasons: winter, summer, summer, and spring. It has received plenty of accolades. CBS News ranked Greenville as one of “2015’s Hottest Vacation Destinations”.  

Livability ranked Greenville's downtown among the top 10. The New York Times called it “a national model for a pedestrian-friendly city center. Forbes has listed Greenville as one of the “15 Best Cities for Young Adults” and as one of the “Top Cities with the Greatest Capacity for Innovation”. The whole nation has now stopped and acknowledged Greenville as a destination city, and one of the most desirable places to do business. Something Go-Forth Pest Control Company had actually known all along. Go-Forth has been providing quality pest control services here since 1959, doing their best to make homes pest-free, including the much-dreaded bed bugs.

Bed bugs are small, parasitic insects that live off the blood of humans and other warm-blooded hosts. They are about the same size as an apple seed. Once they feed off their hosts, their bodies swell. They move around quickly, though they do not fly. And though they cause discomfort to their hosts, they do not transmit diseases. They are nocturnal; they bite only at night while you sleep.

Bed bugs were once reported as having disappeared from public notice in the United States. However, since the 1990’s, these pests have made a comeback. The cause is unknown, but it is said to have been the result of the increase in international travel.  


Bed bugs are travelers; they may enter your homes or offices through bags, luggage, clothes, or other items. Once they get to your house, they tend to hide on mattresses, bed frames, box springs, and headboards. This makes you vulnerable to them as they have easy access to you as you sleep.

Signs That You Have Company

If you wake up in the morning feeling itchy on areas that were not itchy the night before, you may have been bitten by bed bugs. You may also notice fecal stains, eggs, or blood stains on your sheets or pillowcases. It is also said that bed bugs smell like “rotting raspberries”.  

Control & Prevention 

Clean your linens, bedding, and clothing in hot water then dry them on the highest dryer setting. High temperatures help kill off the pests. Vacuuming your bed can also work, but be sure to dispose of the vacuum right after use. If you have spare bedding, enclose it in a plastic bag to protect them from bed bugs. If you have cracks in your wall, repair them. These are some of the favorite hiding places of bed bugs.

Let it be known that if none of these work, you have Go-Forth Pest Control Company to fall back on.
