Bed Bug Detection: How To Spot And Confirm An Infestation
Finding out you have an active bed bug infestation is not fun. What is even less fun is waking up every day with bite marks on your skin and not knowing where they came from. That said, we think it is important that you know how to spot these pests before they cause too much trouble for you and your family. Here are some common signs of bed bugs that will help you identify an active infestation.
Dead bed bugs
Identify an adult bed bug by its ¼” long, reddish-brown, oval-shaped body. When engorged with a blood meal, this pest grows to be five times larger and takes on a more red and bloated appearance. Keeping all of this in mind, if you would like help identifying these pests indoors, call in our team for a quick inspection. We will find out exactly what you are up against.
Bed Bug Problems: They Aren't Just Going To Go Away
One of the biggest problems with bed bugs is that they do not go away on their own. Unlike other area pests that might die off if you restrict their access to food, moisture, or shelter, bed bugs are able to survive even when hungry. This pest can go over six months without a blood meal. If you and your family go on vacation for two months, it is likely that bed bugs will still be in your home when you get back.
To make things worse, bed bug bites lead to problems like insomnia and anemia. Both of these conditions greatly affect general health.

Maintaining A Bed Bug-Free Home: Prevention Strategies
Sadly, there is nothing that professionals like us can do to prevent an active bed bug infestation. If a company says they can spray something around your home to keep these pests at bay, they are lying to you. The only way to stop these pests is to avoid bringing them home. Here are some tips and tricks you might use to avoid an active infestation.
Do not leave your belongings on the ground in public for more than 20 minutes at a time.
Store used or dirty clothing inside air-tight bags before bringing them into your home. Wash this clothing on high heat after you come indoors.
Check hotel rooms for signs of bed bugs before you settle in. If you find something concerning, change rooms.
Inspect used clothing, furniture, and other items for bed bugs before buying.
Teach your friends and family members about bed bugs and how to identify them.
