What are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are small insects that feed on human blood. They are usually smaller than an apple seed. Fortunately, they do not transmit disease, but the bed bug bite is very itchy and can cause a lot of discomfort. They are also known to drive people crazy from lack of good sleep.

How Did I Get a Bed Bug Infestation?

They typically spread in places with many people, as they hitchhike on clothes or other personal items. It is not possible to know if the place someone stays in has bedbugs unless you see bed bug bites or you see the bugs themselves. Signs of their presence include red, itchy marks on areas of the body that have been bitten (typically torso, shoulders, and arms).

They can be brought into a home by infested furniture bought used or traveling. In recent decades they have been increasingly seen in places like apartments, single-family homes, cruise ships, hotels, vacation resorts, and hospitals.

Where do Bed Bugs Hide?

Bed bugs commonly hide in the seams of furniture, such as mattress seams, or in the folds of your bed sheets and other bed linens, along with bed frames, box springs, and headboards. They also like to stay close to their food source, which is you! When you go to a hotel, always check the mattress seams, box spring, and other hiding places where you might find bed bugs. Bed bugs typically feed at night, so the morning after, check yourself for bites.

What Can I Do To Kill Bed Bugs Before Treatment?

We ask that you bag all of your clothes and bedding trash bags and seal them. Then run all of the clothing and bedding through the dryer at high heat. The heat from the dryer will ensure the bed bugs are dead. You will also need to vacuum all over your house, including under all of the furniture. Be sure to dispose of the vacuum bag in a plastic trash bag and seal it.

You should also remove any clutter from around the house, as this will give the technician more room to work and make it easier to find and treat all of the bed bugs.

How Many is a Bed Bug Problem?

That depends, is it one male? See, this is something you can not know. If you see one, most likely you have many. These pests will double their population every other day. So if you brought home one pregnant female bed bug, then she will grow that population. Once it gets up to ten bed bugs, two days later, 20, two days later, 40, then 80, and so on until you have thousands of new bedbugs every day.
