Mr. Garbage specializes in the removal and disposal of furniture infested with bed bugs in Winnipeg and the surrounding area. Bed bugs are blood-sucking insects that, at the adult stage, are about the size of an apple seed. They hide during the day and come out at night in areas where people sleep. While there is no evidence that bed bugs are a health hazard or are able to spread diseases to humans, they can create a lot of stress for anyone with infected furniture. If you have found any bugs or experienced small, itchy red bumps on your skin, contact us today as you may need our help.
