A pest problem is not fun, but when the pests start sharing your bed with you, it gets even worse. Bed bugs are the cause of many sleepless nights and lots of anxiety. If bed bugs invade a business, the results can be devastating. Bed bugs can endure nearly freezing temperatures, as well as temperatures a little over 100 degrees, making them extremely hardy and persistent. They can also survive a year without eating!

Unfortunately, these biting pests are on the rise, with more and more calls coming into pest control companies by the day. It used to be several calls a year and now it’s several a week. They can be picked up in any public place or while visiting friends or family. Excellent at hitchhiking, they will come back with you to your home and reproduce quickly. Because of their rapid reproduction and excellent hiding skills, bed bugs are extremely hard to get rid of on your own. Most DIY efforts focus on certain areas, so if a few bed bugs are missed, it’s easy for the population to increase and take over again. This is why a bed bug infestation can cause so much stress and frustration. If you think you have a bed bug infestation, contact professional pest control right away.

Not sure if you have a bed bug infestation? Here are signs to watch out for:

  • Blood or feces stains on your sheets or mattresses.
  • Waking up with welts or bites in a cluster (may or may not be itchy).
  • Finding their cast-off skins or shells from growing bed bugs.
  • Seeing the bed bugs, nymphs, or their small white eggs.
