Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite!

January 17, 2022

By Hawx Pest Control

As a kid, were you tucked into bed with the phrase ”sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite!” We were too. And we didn’t put much thought into it in our childhood, but now this is a thought that crosses our minds often. Do we have bed bugs? Can bed bugs exist on surfaces other than our mattresses? How can I get rid of bed bugs if I do have them?

Well, worry not, readers. We’re here to answer all of these very important questions.

where to find bed bugs

Bed bugs can enter your home in a number of ways, including by hitching a ride on a houseguests luggage, or clothing or they might already be on the furniture you purchased off of Facebook Marketplace. There’s no telling where that furniture has before it enters your home. And yes, bed bugs don’t just keep to beds and mattresses. They’ll make themselves at home on any surface that resembles a mattress, such as your couch, recliners, chair cushions, carpets, and any other upholstered surface in your home.

how to get rid of bed bugs

So now that you’ve discovered you have bed bugs inside of your home, it’s time to stop them from spreading and then get rid of them entirely! Some bed bug cases are too severe to be able to treat on your own. To determine this, the EPA recommends keeping these questions in mind:

  • How many bed bugs do you have?
  • How much clutter is available for hiding places?
  • Do your neighbors have bedbugs?

The answers to these questions will help you determine whether this can be a DIY project or whether it’s time for the pros. But, to ensure success every time, we recommend calling in our team for backup. At Hawx Pest Control, we have experience in ridding homes of these nasty invaders and would be glad to do the same in your home!
