Facts about Bed Bugs

  • Bed Bugs: (unlike make believe Vampires) Really Suck Your Blood Night
  • They are parasites of humans and animals
  • They are suspected of caring diseases but have not been proven to spread diseases to humans yet
  • Due to several reasons, Bed Bugs are becoming a huge problem again in today’s society
  • For example: international travel, lack of awareness, moving into an infested home, failed treatments by either the homeowner or inexperienced company, etc.

Bed Bug Description

  • The female can lay up to 500 eggs in her life at a rate of 12 eggs per day!
  • Eggs are from 1 to 1.5mm in length (hatch within 6-10 days)
  • Nymphs are transparent and start to get color after feeding
  • Range from 2 to 5mm in length
  • After 5 molts in about 10 weeks, bed bugs become adults and are reddish brown, flatten and oval in shape
  • Range from 6 to 9.5mm in length

Signs You May Have Bed Bugs

Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation

  • Blood Spots on your mattress in the creases and folds of the mattress.
  • Wake up with unexplained red spots and welts anywhere on your body
  • Find the adults or nymphs crawling on your sheets, walls, headboard or anything in your bedroom. (People usually do not notice that they have a bed bug problem until it’s too late; somewhere around 2 – 3 months after they start having signs.)
  • If someone waits any longer after realizing they have a problem and try to treat themselves; it will only make things worse in the long run and will cause the bed bugs to spread throughout the home.

Bed Bug Treatment

  • If you have bed bugs, don’t hire the cheapest company out there. Unless you want to live with the bed bugs for months on end.
  • Much preparation is need before treatment is able to be done, usually 1-2 days of prep work by homeowner.
  • Do not attempt to start cleaning until you get thorough instructions from a licensed professional – You do not want to spread the bed bugs to more places throughout your home!

Bed Bug Prevention

  • True prevention is not a treatment but knowledge of what to do and look for when traveling
  • When staying anywhere that is not your home or at any hotel (doesn’t matter if 5 star or no star) inspect the room before you unpack or lay down on the bed
  • Pull up the sheets on the mattress and look closely at the folds and creases of the mattress to see if there are any marks that shouldn’t be there
  • Inspect the head board by lifting it off the wall
  • Inspect around the corners of the walls and ceiling for marks
  • Examine the curtains and furniture as well
  • If all is clear, it’s now ok to relax
  • You don’t want bed bugs to make their next home your home
