Bed bugs have flat bodies that are about the size of a lemon seed. They are usually brown but can turn a reddish color and swell to the size of a raisin after feasting on your or another building occupant’s blood. Bed bug eggs are nearly invisible to the naked eye because they’re so small, but a single female bed bug can lay hundreds of eggs in her lifetime.
Bed bugs hide inside mattresses, in bed frames, headboards, box springs, in sheets, blankets, and other bedding. However, they don’t only live in beds. Bed bugs can be found in luggage, chairs, couches, and other furniture with fabric.
Exterminating bed bugs with chemical treatments is the safest and most effective way to get rid of them. If the infestation is severe enough you may want to consider replacing your bed and disinfecting any salvageable bedding. Unfortunately not every chemical treatment is safe to use on bedding, so talk to your bed bug control specialist about your options.
Bed bug bites typically come with several attacks. The bites generally manifest on the arms and legs. Sometimes they also appear on the neck area and torso. Bed bugs have a tendency to assemble together in concealed, undisturbed areas where you sit or sleep. Once you discover an infestation, a complete treatment is necessary.
Unlike ticks, bed bugs don’t live in your skin. They bite or feed on the skin then go back to their hiding place, and then go back to feed again. Even though bed bugs don’t live in the skin, their bites can develop into an infection or cause itchiness. Treat the bug bites to prevent the wounds from getting infected and less itchy. You can do this by showering with warm or hot water. Rubbing an exfoliating body cleanser on the body helps, too. You can also apply anti-itch ointment on the bites. Make a note of any white or red welts on your body as they require a prescription cream from the doctor.
To exterminate and remove bed bugs for good, call a professional bed bug exterminator. They’ll do the dirty work for you. Our bed bug exterminators are experienced with eliminating large bed bug outbreaks in hotels, apartment complexes, medical buildings, private medical practices, and many other commercial buildings.
Before hiring a pro, we recommend preparing the infected area to make the exterminator’s work more potent and effective. You can do this by cleaning up the infested area and removing any clutter in the room. This makes the inspection easier.
