Bed Bug Identification & Prevention

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs have long been a problem for people because we are this pests preferred host and our blood is their primary food source. Using their specialized mouthpart (proboscis), they pierce their host’s skin and feed on their blood. Before feeding, bed bugs are small, about the size and shape of an apple seed. After feeding, their body swells and darkens in color. Because they have adapted to living with people, bed bugs are indoor pests that are active year-round and get around by traveling with people from place to place. 

Are bed bugs dangerous?

Bed bugs can become destructive when living in our homes. They will stain paint, bedding, floors, furniture, and more with drops of blood and dark excrement. Unlike other blood-feeding pests, the spread of disease-causing pathogens by bed bugs is not of significant concern; this doesn’t mean we should allow bed bugs to use us as a food source.

Bed bugs are unwanted, and lead to sleepless nights and stressful days. Those allergic to their bites will develop red itchy welts that can become infected. If bed bugs have become a problem in your home, immediately contact a professional to assist you and provide the services needed to treat and eliminate the entire infestation!

Why do I have a bed bug problem?

Bed bugs move by hitchhiking and are adept at moving from place to place, using people to transport them. After coming into contact with bed bugs, they crawl onto you or your belongings, hiding in dark crevices until introduced into a new environment. Bed bugs can live in almost any indoor environment, including our homes, hotels, airports, hospitals, schools, laundry mats, dormitories, shopping centers, movie theaters, and libraries. Wherever people are coming and going, there is the potential for bed bugs to be present.

Where Will I Find Bed Bugs?

The bed bug’s name tells us where they like to spend much of their time. Bed bugs are nocturnal and feed on their hosts when they are sleeping. Our bedrooms provide bed bugs with the easiest access to their preferred hosts. They hide in the seams of mattresses and box springs, in the cracks of walls and wooden furniture, behind wall hangings and behind baseboards and wood trim. If available, bed bugs will also feed on our pets, and will also hide around pet bedding.

As an infestation grows, bed bugs will move throughout a home, hiding in many areas, including upholstered furniture, behind electrical outlets, in electronics, and under piles of clutter.

    "Cheers to Prestige for their paramount service!"
