BED BUG CONTROL

helping rid homes & businesses of bed bug infestations

what are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are parasitic insects, and their appearance varies at each stage of life: egg, nymph, and adult. Their sole source of nutrition is blood from warm-blooded mammals, with people being their favorite hosts. Adult bed bugs are brownish-red and about the same size and shape of an apple seed. After feeding, their bodies swell and turn a purple-red color. Nymphs are smaller and are transparent, turning bright red after feeding. Eggs are very tiny – only the size of a pinhead –and almost impossible to see.

When bed bugs get into homes, they bring with them sleepless nights and stress-filled days. Their bites produce red raised welts that are very itchy; secondary infections may develop due to excessive scratching. Although bed bugs are nuisance pests, they can harbor some disease-causing pathogens. Bed bug excrement, and blood left from their bites, stains walls, floors, fabrics, upholstery, mattresses, and box springs. With large infestations, you may also notice a sweet, musty smell developing in your home.

why do i have a bed bug problem?

Accidentally encountering bed bugs and introducing them into your home can happen during the travel process or while completing day to day activities. They live and hide in a variety of locations, usually in public places where groups of people come and go each day. Hotels, airports, taxis, movie theaters, hospitals, shopping centers, and libraries are all places people can encounter bed bugs. Bed bugs also hitchhike their way inside of used mattresses and box springs.

where will i find bed bugs?

Bed bugs got their name because they gravitate to the sleeping areas near people initially. Common hiding spots for bed bugs include headboards, mattresses, and box springs. If you don’t eliminate an infestation quickly, the bed bugs will travel to other parts of a home, including upholstered furniture, floors, behind baseboards, in wall voids behind outlets, and inside keyboards and electronics.

how can i prevent bed bugs in the future?

In addition to our professional services, the following prevention tips will help you to keep bed bugs out of your home or business:

  • Regularly vacuum your home, not forgetting the seams of mattresses, box springs, and upholstered furniture.
  • After returning home from travel, wash all clothing on the highest heat setting the fabrics can handle.
  • Never purchase used mattresses, box springs, or upholstered furniture for use inside your home.
  • Vacuum and wipe down suitcases used during vacation.
  • After purchasing clothes from retail stores or second-hand stores, immediately wash and dry them.
  • Reduce hiding spots in your home by placing bed bug proof covers over all mattresses and box springs.
  • When traveling, use suitcases with hard sides and always inspect your hotel room for bed bugs before bringing luggage and other personal belongings inside.
