Bed Bugs

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are a well-known pest, well-known for being something that nobody wants to find within their home, and should be removed from your home as soon as possible. These tiny insects, which are shaped like apple seeds, feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals with people being their preferred hosts. If we are available, they will more than likely pass up any other available host.

Adult bed bugs grow to about a quarter of an inch in length and are reddish-brown. After feeding, they turn a deeper reddish-purple color, and their body swells in size. These insects are wingless and cannot jump. To move from place to place, they hitchhike on people or our belongings.

  • How can I prevent bed bugs in the future?

    To prevent problems with bed bugs on your property or in your home, follow our top prevention tips that are listed below!

    • Keep these notorious hitchhikers out of your home by being aware of your surroundings when out in public. Make sure to keep your personal belongings up off of the ground and away from other people's belongings.
    • If you love a good bargain, be careful. Secondhand furniture, mattresses, and box springs are often home to hitchhiking bed bugs.
    • Bed bugs love clutter. While a cluttered home does not attract bed bugs, it does help them to hide unnoticed and allows an infestation to grow without notice. Keep your home free of as much clutter as possible.
    • Another favorite hiding spot for bed bugs is in the seams of mattresses and box springs. Take away this hiding spot by using bed bug proof mattress and box spring covers.
    • Use covers in outlets to help stop bed bugs from moving behind your home's walls.
    • If you live in an apartment building, seal spaces at the bottom of exterior doors and along baseboards to stop wandering bed bugs from moving into your unit.

  • Where will I find bed bugs?

    One of the bed bugs most popular places to hide out, as their name suggests, are sleeping areas. In bedroom areas, bed bugs often hide in the seams of mattresses, cracks in walls or wooden furniture, behind door or window trim, or behind pictures or other wall hangings. But, bed bugs don't only live in bedrooms. These insects move through walls and floors using wires and pipes as their own highway system. The longer an infestation is allowed to continue, the more areas of your home they will infest.

    In addition to our homes, bed bugs come into contact with people in almost any public place, including office buildings, shopping centers, airports, public transportation, libraries, movie theaters, and cruise ships.

  • Why do I have a bed bug problem?

    Bed bugs move into homes and travel from place to place by hitchhiking. Just a couple of bed bugs finding their way into your home after hitchhiking on you or a visitor's belongings can lead to a large infestation.

    Bed bugs are tricky and problematic pests because they can lay dormant for long periods without feeding. People often try to take care of a bed bug infestation on their own, thinking they have an infestation conquered, only to discover the bed bugs have never left after they begin to feed once again. The only way to successfully eliminate them and prevent them from coming back is with the help of an experienced professional.

  • Are bed bugs dangerous?

    The old saying, "sleep tight don't let the bed bugs bite," is sage advice, not because bed bugs are dangerous, but because no one can sleep well if concerned about their bites. Bed bugs breed quickly, play an excellent game of hide and seek, and are difficult to control and eliminate. At the first signs of these pests inside your home, reach out for help from a professional.

    In addition to delivering itchy bites, bed bugs cause sleepless nights for people and days filled with worry and stress. As of now, the spread of disease by blood-feeding bed bugs is not a concern.
