The adult bed bug is 3/16” long, oval, flat and rusty red or mahogany in color. The bed bug is flat and thin when unfed but becomes more elongated, plump, and red when it is full of blood. Bed bugs hide in cracks and crevices during the day, preferring to rest on wood and paper surfaces instead of stone and plaster. It leaves these harborage areas at night to feed on its host which include humans, birds, dogs, and family pets. The blood meal requires three to ten minutes and usually goes unnoticed by the victim. After feeding, the bite site may become inflamed and itch severely. Talk to us for personalized bed bug solutions!

HOW TO IDENTIFY A BED BUG INFESTATION:

Bites on the skin are a poor indicator of a bed bug infestation. Bed bug bites can look like bites from other insects (such as mosquitoes or chiggers), rashes (such as eczema or fungal infections), or even hives. Some people do not react to bed bug bites at all.

Call us for bed bug exterminator services if you discover an infestation!

    A better way to identify a bed bug infestation is to look for physical signs of bed bugs. When you are changing the bed, or when you are traveling, here are some signs to look for:

    Rusty or reddish stains on bed sheets or mattresses caused by bed bugs being crushed

    Dark spots (about this size: •), which are bed bug excrement and may bleed on the fabric like a marker would

    Eggs and eggshells, which are tiny (about 1mm) and pale yellow skins that nymphs shed as they grow larger

    Live bed bugs

    It is best to find a bed bug infestation early, before the infestation spreads. Treating a small infestation is much easier than treating the same infestation after it has grown.

    However, small infestations are also much tougher to find and identify. Other insects, such as carpet beetles, are sometimes mistaken for bed bugs. If you misidentify a bed bug infestation, it gives the bugs more time to spread to other areas of the house.
