How To Identify And Get Rid Of Bed Bug Problem In Your Conroe Home

bed bug

Bed bugs have been a problem that has plagued homeowners for centuries. During the mid-1900s, however, the bed bug population seemed to be on such a steep decline that many people thought that bed bugs were nothing more than a myth. Over the last few decades, these tiny bugs have made a comeback, and everyone knows just how real and bothersome these tiny pests can be. 


At Chase Pest Control, we have been providing customized pest control in Conroe since 1997. Many of our experienced pest control specialists have been in the pest elimination business since bed bugs first returned. We have spent decades developing the perfect way to eliminate these pesky bugs from homes for good.

The First Step Is To Identify A Bed Bug Infestation

Many people mistakenly think that only adult bed bugs can be seen with the naked eye. This is not true, but a baby bed bug is about the size of a peppercorn, and an adult bed bug is no bigger than an apple seed. If you take a bed bug's small size into account, it is easy to see why some people may believe that you need a magnifying glass to see them. 

If you are one of the many people that easily overlook the bed bugs in your home, there are a few telltale bed bug signs that you can look for instead, which include:

  • Tiny pearl-colored bed bug eggs that are only about one millimeter long
  • Black or dark-red bed bug fecal spot that can easily smear like marker ink
  • Yellow and translucent skin casings
  • Blood stains on your sheets and bedding that come from accidentally crushing a bed bug after its feeding

Bed bugs get their name because they are commonly found under mattresses and box springs. However, this is not the only place where you can find bed bugs in your home. Because of their small size, there is no place off-limits to a bed bug in Conroe. They can be found in your furniture, inside your dresser drawers, or even in the cracks of electronic equipment. 

All The Ways Bed Bugs Can Sneak Their Way Into Our Homes

Bed bugs usually don't just walk into your home on their own. Instead, they hide in public areas like dressing rooms, libraries, and hotels. When you get close to them, they will crawl into your bags or on your clothes and hitch a ride back to your house. Once the bed bugs are in your home, they will find a snug place to hide and start procreating shortly after taking a blood meal. 

It's Very Difficult To Get Rid Of A Bed Bug Infestation On Your Own

Bed bugs are one of the many types of pests that require a professional in order to completely get rid of them. Most store-bought DIY bed bug control treatments are ineffective at treating bed bugs. Some bed bug traps are available in stores, but they only target adult bed bugs and don't even do a great job at eliminating all of them. 

To completely get rid of bed bugs, you will need a professional pest control specialist that uses multiple treatment options and can apply the treatments as often as necessary. Multiple bed bug treatments are required to ensure that you are eliminating bed bugs at every stage of life.
