If you suspect your house is infested with bed bugs, the first thing you need to do is verify it. You may be able to do this yourself, if the bugs are in obvious places, but they like to hide and may be in places you don’t think about. They can hide in smoke detectors, cracks in walls and floors, electrical sockets as well as in mattresses and bed frames. That is why it is important to have an experienced pest professional to inspect your home to verify any infestation.
What do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Bed Bugs are oval-shaped and wingless. They are brown and flattened until their first blood meal, at which point they will appear reddish brown and swollen. An adult bed bug is about the size of an apple seed. Bed Bugs are found in every corner of the world. Bed Bugs can enter your home in a
number of ways.
- They can unsuspectingly hide in bags, boxes, or luggage.
- They can be brought in on second hand furniture or other items.
- They can tag along on your clothing when you visit someone’s house.
- They can crawl between walls on wires or pipes.
Bed Bugs can hide in places other than mattresses and furniture. They can hide in and under carpet, floor cracks, behind baseboard and other moldings, in wall voids, inside light fixtures, in curtains, or almost anything or anywhere.
