Bed bug infestation signs

The first thing that a clean care kenya professional bed bug exterminator will look for are the signs of a bed bug infestation. This can take quite a bit of time, and it’s why we often recommend a canine bed bug inspection, as bed bugs are crafty and can hide easily almost anywhere and bed bug dogs can seek them out more easily than people.

There are specific things that a professional bed bug exterminator is looking for, including:

  • Shed skins – bed bugs go through several life cycles and they leave behind their shed skins.
  • Fecal spots – bed bugs are rather rude and will leave fecal deposits that look like tiny black dots from a felt tip pen behind.
  • Blood spots – the bugs can become crushed and leave behind blood spots or the wounds they leave on you can bleed a bit, too. Tiny spots of blood on sheets are a telltale sign.
  • Odors – in a very heavy infestation, even a human nose can detect the unpleasant, somewhat sweet smell of a bed bug invasion. Bed bugs also give off a hormonal scent when disturbed, too. Dogs can spot these scents with smaller infestations and much easier than humans.
  • Insects – if you look in the right places, like creases, cracks, crevices, you can also find the live bugs. They are small and sometimes hard to see, not much bigger than an apple seed in some life stages, but our highly trained bed bug experts can find them.

Where will I find bed bugs?

  • Bed frames and headboard crevices
  • Mattress seams
  • Carpets
  • Between floorboards
  • In cracked or broken plaster, behind peeling wallpaper
  • Drawers and cupboards
  • Wardrobes
  • Bedside cabinets

Bed bug prevention

Bed bug prevention can seem tricky. The mobile nature of bed bugs limits their prevention. Avoidance is especially challenging in hotels, motels and apartments because occupants and their belongings are constantly changing, which affords many opportunities for the bugs to be introduced. Everyone should be wary of acquiring second hand beds, bedding, and furniture. At a minimum, such items should be examined closely before being brought into the home.

When traveling, it’s prudent to examine the bed and headboard area for signs of the bugs, and elevate luggage off the floor. If your room does have a problem, notify hotel management immediately and move to another room. Make sure the new room is not immediately adjacent to (including above or below) the infested room that you are departing.

KNOW THE ENEMY: BED BUGS

Have you been searching for how to get rid of bed bugs? Once an afterthought, these pests have made quite the resurgence recently. The more you know about bed bugs, the better your chances of avoiding them.

BED BUG BASICS

This pest gets its name from the fact that it is usually found in close proximity to beds. That’s because bed bugs need the blood of warm-blooded animals to survive.

Unfortunately, bed bugs can mature in about 35 days. They then live about seven to 12 months. This makes bed bug removal difficult to do without the help of a professional.

THE BED BUG BITE

Bed bugs primarily feed on humans sleeping in bed at night. The bite is painless, and the blood meal takes about 10 minutes.

BED BUGS ON THE HUNT

How do bed bugs find hosts while they are asleep? Body heat, the carbon dioxide from exhaled breath and other biological signatures help focus the bed bugs on unsuspecting, snoozing hosts.

The bed bug feeds, then retreats back to its place of harborage for days or even weeks before coming back out. This can make detection difficult until the infestation is well established.

BED BUGS ON THE MOVE

Bed bugs are skilled hitchhikers. In fact, they are primarily transported by humans and human belongings like suitcases.

KEEPING YOUR EYES OPEN FOR BED BUGS

The smaller the infestation, the easier bed bug extermination is to conduct. That’s why it’s important to spot any possible infestation as early as possible.

SIGNS OF BED BUGS

Bed bugs are good at hiding, but not good at hiding evidence. The careless clues they leave are the best indicator your room is overrun with bed bugs. The clues to look for include:

  • Shed bed bug skins, exoskeletons or shells
  • Fecal stains on your mattress and bedding
  • Blood stains on your sheets and pajamas

SIGNS OF BED BUG BITES

Bed bug bite reactions in skin look similar to those caused by fleas and mosquitoes. Telling which insect caused a bite might not be possible.

Look for these signs of symptoms of a bed bug bite:

  • Raised, red welts
  • Burning and itching
  • Bed bug bite rash across a localized area
  • Straight lines of multiple bites

WHERE TO LOOK

Proper bed bug control requires a watchful eye. To feed on humans, bed bugs want close proximity to the host.

In the bedroom, box springs, headboards and bed framing are favorite spots for these pests. They may also settle into furniture and fixtures that are close to a bed.

Bedrooms are not the only place where bed bugs can be a concern. The feeding doesn’t have to be at night. All bed bugs are looking for are human hosts inactive long enough to provide a meal.

Getting rid of bed bugs is difficult. Any place that humans sit, rest or sleep can be a place that bed bugs are introduced or feed.

Sitting for two hours in a movie theater makes you a target. A favorite recliner in the living room can also make you a target. You can also become a target taking a taxi across town.

PUT BED BUG WORRIES TO REST

WHEN YOU TRAVEL

Bed bugs have an uncanny ability to spread using unsuspecting people and their belongings as carriers.

Following the steps below will help minimize the chances of you running into bed bugs. More importantly, it will help you minimize the chances of you bringing some home with you.

  • First, check travel reviews before visiting a hotel, and be careful of those with multiple reports of bed bugs.
