Signs You May Have Bed Bugs

Detecting signs of a bed bug infestation early allows for timely intervention. Here are some common indicators to watch out for: 

  • Unexplained bites: Bed bugs feed on human blood during the night, leaving behind bite marks that are often clustered together in areas like the arms, neck, and shoulders. 
  • Blood stains: Discovering small bloodstains on your sheets or pillowcases could be a result of accidentally squashing a bed bug while sleeping. When bed bugs feed, they pierce the skin and draw blood, which may get smeared on bedding when crushed. 
  • Musty odor: Bed bugs release pheromones that give off a distinct, unpleasant smell. This odor is often more noticeable in areas where bed bugs are concentrated, such as around the bed frame or mattress.
  • Visible bugs: Spotting live bed bugs or their shed skins on your mattress or furniture is a direct confirmation of a bed bug problem. Adult bed bugs are approximately the size of an apple seed, with a reddish-brown color and flat, oval-shaped bodies. 
  • Dark spots: These spots, resembling ink stains, are likely bed bug excrement. Their presence on sheets, mattresses, or furniture is a clear sign of bed bug activity and should prompt a thorough inspection of your living spaces.

The Problems Bed Bugs Cause

Bed bugs can create various issues for all in our home, starting with these: 

  • Health concerns: Bed bug bites can cause itching, skin irritation, and allergic reactions.
  • Sleep disruption: Constantly worrying about bed bugs can lead to anxiety and make it difficult to get a truly deep sleep. 
  • Property damage: Bed bugs can infest furniture, mattresses, and other belongings, potentially damaging them beyond repair. 

Tips for Bed Bug Prevention

To prevent a bed bug infestation, consider the following preventive measures:

  • Regularly inspect your bedding: Check your mattress, box spring, and bedding at periodic, scheduled intervals. 
  • Reduce clutter: Bed bugs are often attracted to places they can hide. Clearing out the clutter removes at least some of those places. 
  • Be cautious when traveling: Inspect hotel rooms for bed bugs before unpacking. If bed bugs get into your clothing or suitcase, they’ll come home with you. 
  • Seal cracks and crevices: Stopping bed bugs at the point of entry is the best method of all. Our Waldorf bed bug professionals can help identify the vulnerable points of your property and take appropriate security measures. 

Typical Timeline for Eradicating Bed Bugs

Eradicating bed bugs typically involves thorough inspections, treatment applications, and follow-up visits. Depending on the severity of the infestation, eradication can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. After we assess your property, we’ll be able to give you a more specific timeline.

We Use Safe Bed Bug Control Treatment Methods

When dealing with a bed bug infestation, it's crucial to prioritize safe and effective treatment methods. This protects both occupants and the environment. At Mike's Pest and Termite Control, we employ a range of proven techniques that are not only environmentally friendly but are also aimed at the safety of your family and your pets.

We utilize steam applications to target bed bugs and their eggs directly. Steam effectively kills bed bugs on contact, penetrating through fabrics and furniture to eradicate infestations. This method is non-toxic, making it a safe option for homes with children or pets.

In cases where pesticide application is necessary, we follow strict industry standards to minimize risks to human health and the environment. Our targeted pesticide treatments are applied strategically to eliminate bed bugs while minimizing exposure to harmful chemicals. 

Your peace of mind is our top priority as we diligently use safe and effective control methods to rid your home of bed bugs.
