Bed Bug Control

Bed bugs don’t have nests, but they do tend to gather in areas that can be seen by dark spotting and staining of dried excrement, eggs, shells, brownish skins of nymphs and the bugs themselves will be present.

How did I get Bed Bugs?

Bed bug infestations have increased dramatically over the past few years. Anyone who travels is especially at high risk for bringing bed bugs home, no matter how nice of a hotel you stay at. They’ve also spread into public places, infesting schools, libraries, hospitals, movie theaters, cruise ships, buses, trains and more.

What are the signs of bed bugs?

If you suspect that you have bed bugs, there are a few signs that you should look for. Bed bugs leave behind small, reddish brown, rust-colored spots on mattresses, box springs, and other furniture. You may also notice small, red bite marks on your skin, which are the result of bed bug bites. Additionally, bed bugs have a distinct, musty odor, which can be detected in infested areas.

Bed bugs are easily transported from one location to another and can be very difficult to treat, resulting in a rapid growth in the number of infestations.
