Bed Bugs

(Cimex lectularius)

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are flattened, oval-shaped insects that feed solely on blood. People are their favorite hosts, and these pests have adapted to living indoors with us. They move with ease from business to home, home to business, home to home, and business to business by hitching a ride on people or our belongings. They are nocturnal pests that hide during the day and emerge at night to feed on their sleeping hosts.

Are bed bugs dangerous?

When bed bugs feed, the process is painless, and only those allergic to their saliva will experience a red itchy rash. Excessive itching at the bite sites could lead to a secondary infection.

Bed bugs are not dangerous when it comes to the spread of disease, but still, these pests are one of the most unwanted insects to have in our homes.

Their presence affects sleep and causes worry and stress. Bed bugs are difficult to avoid and require a professional’s experience to eliminate them once they get into a home. Some of the signs that indicate you may have a bed bug infestation are:

  • Tiny dots of blood or dark streaks of excrement on your bedding or pillows.
  • Piles of their shed skins under mattresses or on the floor.
  • A strong, musty odor has developed in your home.
  • You or family members waking up with insect bites arranged in lines or clusters.
  • Live or dead bed bugs.

If you discover any of these signs, contact us at Chase Pest Control right away.

Why do I have a bed bug problem?

Since bed bugs prefer to feed on human blood, it makes sense that they live where we live and spend our time. Bed bugs can become a problem in any home or business since their primary mode of transportation is hitchhiking. After crawling onto us or our personal belongings, they will go wherever we take them. Examples of places where people often come into contact with these pests include hotels, airports, movie theaters, libraries, schools, dormitories, and hospitals.

Another common way that bed bugs get into our houses is through the purchase of used items like clothing, mattresses, and furniture. It is also important to note that bed bugs can move between units through walls and floors, crawling along wires and pipes in multi-unit buildings.

Where will I find bed bugs?

Their small size and flat bodies allow bed bugs to hide almost anywhere, preferring areas that provide them with easy access to their hosts. Below are some of their favorite hideouts:

  • The seams of mattresses and box springs
  • Upholstered and wooden furniture
  • Behind baseboards and trim
  • Under rugs
  • Inside of closets and drawers
  • Inside of electrical outlets
