Bed Bugs

What you should know about bed bugs

Bed bugs are very elusive creatures that can be found anywhere where there are people.  Places like homes, retail establishments, schools, apartments, and hotels (even elegant ones) are frequent inhabitants of bed bugs.  The reason for their popularity is they're very good hitch hikers.  They often hide in clothing and can go along for a ride just about anywhere. 

Finding bed bugs in these locations shouldn't be surprising; however, there's no reason to panic.  Bed bugs do carry pathogens, but they present no risk to people.

How do you know if you have a bed bug problem?

  • Shed Skin - Bed bugs molt and shed their skin so you can often find their shed skin in areas where there's an infestation. 
  • Fecal Deposits - Bed bugs often leave deposits after they consume a meal.  They're normally black dots that can often be seen on a mattress or sheet. 
  • Blood
  • Small White Eggs
  • Odor - Bed bugs leave a noticeable odor in areas where there's an infestation.
