Bed Bug Exterminators – Control – Removal

Bed bugs are a homeowner’s worst nightmare. These tiny hidden insects can live nearly 12 months without a meal, reproduce quickly, and, of course, are known to bite their hosts when they are active during the nighttime. Even worse, they’re nearly impossible to get rid of without the help of a professional!

How Bed Bug Infestations Begin

One of the major causes of  bed bug infestations is traveling. Bed bugs get into clothes and luggage and then are brought home, where they can spread quickly and silently. Many hotels deal with bed bug problems, which are then taken up by their guests. You could have picked them up from your hotel room, or even from your suitcase on the plane!

How Dangerous Are Bed Bugs?

A bed bug does not actually live under your skin, but will simply drink a few drops of blood while you are sleeping. You cannot feel its bite, even though it is actually piercing the skin. Although some saliva will get into the bite, bed bugs are not known to pass on any diseases to humans. However, bites can cause some people to experience rashes, hives, or welts. If bug bites cause a serious reaction, it’s important to receive prompt medical attention.

Signs of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are elusive and difficult to locate when the infestation is early. There are a number of signs that you likely have a bed bug infestation on your hands:

  1. Rust-colored or reddish stains, which results from the bugs being crushed
  2. Tiny shells or eggshells, which are typically a pale yellow color
  3. Dark spots no bigger than the size of a period, which is bed bug excrement
  4. Bites appearing on the skin, typically found on parts of the body that are exposed while sleeping

Bed Bug Hiding Places

Bed bugs are a domesticated pest, and are not typically found in the wild. Most infestations occur when a person unknowingly brings bed bugs back to their homes from another infested area. The preferred hiding places of bed bugs are typically in mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and headboards, where they have easy access to feed on people during the night. Some of the more rare places bed bugs have been found include wall outlets, baseboards, window frames, upholstered furniture, closets, and other pieces of furniture. Because they can spread so easily, it’s important to have a professional bed bug expert conduct an inspection!
