How Do I Know if I Have Bed Bugs?
The best way to find out if you have bed bugs is to call a local bed bug specialist, like Pest Fighter. We know how to identify bed bugs and where they hide.
You can also look for:
- Signs of bed bug skins around creases in the bed or bedroom.
- Blood fecal pellets often left in cracks or near bite sites.
- Unexplained musty odor (for bad infestations).
There may also be unusual bite patterns. Bed bugs tend to bite more than once, and often three times. Doctors and bed bug pest control companies often refer to this as “Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.”
If you identify bed bug bites on your body, check the creases of your mattress for an infestation or call a bed bug control service like Pest Fighter at 206-236-BUGS for further help determining if you have bed bugs.
How Did I Get Bed Bugs?
To practice effective bed bug control, you just first understand how you got bed bugs. Most people get bed bugs from traveling. If you sleep in a place that has a bed bug infestation, a few bed bugs may sneak into your luggage or on your clothes and travel with you to your home where they start a new colony.
You may also get bed bugs from:
- Visitors that come from a bed bug infested home.
- Neighbors with bed bugs, as bed bugs may search for new dwellings.
- Used furniture that had a bed bug infestation.
Bed bugs may also be found at work, in movie theaters, and even in taxis or Ubers.
Why Is Bed Bug Control and Extermination Difficult?
There was a time when bed bugs were almost eradicated. Eventually, the last remaining bed bugs became resistant to several types of bed bug pest control services and started growing back. Since then, commercial and residential clients have found bed bug control and extermination difficult.
Bed bugs have a fantastic ability to hide in very obscure places. They can hide anywhere in the home but more commonly in cracks, furniture, bed creases and in wall hangings. Because of their ability to go unnoticed it can be very difficult to remove and fully get rid of bed bugs.
It’s important to use a variety of treatment methods as there is no one size fits all fix. For example, bed bug heat treatment might be effective for smaller apartments or hotel rooms but can be difficult to apply in larger spaces.
