HOW TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE BED BUGS IN YOUR HOME

If you have reason to suspect your home may have been invaded with bed bugs, there are a few signs you can look for to make a preliminary confirmation. The fact is, bed bugs are a lot easier to eliminate if you catch it early, so waiting and seeing is not the best course of action when it comes to a possible infestation.

If you see any of these tell-tale signs of bed bugs in your home, make the call to Genie Pest Control services right away to get ahead of this growing and very obstinate problem. Left unchecked, bed bugs reach maturity in about 35 days and can live up to an entire year with an adequate food supply. Without professional intervention, stopping bed bugs in their tracks can be very difficult.

SIGNS OF BED BUGS INFESTATION
  • Look for bed bug skins, which are the exoskeletons (or shells) they shed as they grow.
  • Watch for fecal stains made by bed bugs on your mattress pad and/or bedding.
  • Be on the lookout for blood stains on your sheets or bedclothes caused by the biting insects.
  • Examine your family for signs of bites which might include raised, red welts; burning and itching sores; or a rash in one specific body area (like the chest or abdomen). Bed bugs feast in a relatively straight path, so the bites are often arranged in a straight line and comprised of multiple bites.
WHERE TO LOOK

Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown creatures that feed on humans and they like to stay close to the buffet. Anywhere people sit, lay or congregate for short periods of time are potential locations for these very annoying creatures to set up residence.

In the bedroom, mattresses, box springs and headboards and ideal places for bed bugs to make their nest. Couches, chairs, soft furniture or even fixtures can be accommodating for these little bugs. They can hitch a ride on just about anything you might come into contact with including a taxi or car ride, a movie theatre seat or from hotels and airline seats when you travel.

As easy as they are to pick up, they’re extremely difficult to get rid of. Because bed bugs are fond of taking long naps after a meal of your blood, they retreat back to their nests inside your bed or other soft surfaces to hang out until it is time to eat again. This makes the job of finding them and eliminating them quite tricky.

HOW TO KEEP BED BUGS FROM GETTING INTO YOUR HOME

Sadly, there is no sure fire way to keep bed bugs from following you home and setting up housekeeping.

You can be extra diligent while traveling, paying close attention to travel reviews, inspecting hotel rooms for any signs of infestation and keeping your suitcases off the floor. Hanging clothing is preferable to storing them in drawers when you are traveling.
