Here are some of the most common questions our professional bed bug exterminators get when it comes to possible bed bug infestations.
What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Bed bugs are small, wingless insects that are typically reddish-brown in color. They have a flat oval-shaped body, and are about the size of an apple seed, though their size can range from about 1 to 7 millimeters in length, depending on their life stage and whether they have recently fed.
What Do Bed Bug Bites Look Like?
Bed bug bites typically appear as small, red, raised bumps on the skin. They are often clustered together in a line or a group and can cause itching and irritation. Unlike flea bites, bedbug bites may have a distinct pattern, such as a linear or zigzag arrangement, and commonly occur on exposed areas of the body like the arms, shoulders, neck, face, and legs.
It's important to note that individual reactions to bed bug bites can vary, and some people may not have any visible signs of bites or may have different skin reactions.
Where Do Bed Bugs Hide?
Bed bugs are adept at hiding and can be found in various locations within an infested area. Here are some common places where bed bugs hide:
- Mattresses and bedding: Bed bugs often hide in mattress seams, box springs, and bed frames. They can also be found in the gaps between the mattress and the bed frame.
- Furniture and upholstery: Infested furniture, such as couches, chairs, and upholstered furniture, provide hiding spots for bed bugs. They can hide in the seams, tufts, underneath furniture, and on the legs of furniture.
- Cracks and crevices: Bed bugs can squeeze into tiny cracks and crevices in walls, floors, baseboards, and furniture. They can also hide behind peeling wallpaper or loose electrical outlet covers.
- Luggage and personal belongings: Bed bugs can hitch a ride in luggage, backpacks, purses, and clothing. They can hide in the folds and pockets of these items, making them potential carriers of infestations.
- Electronics and appliances: In severe infestations, bed bugs may seek shelter in electronic devices, alarm clocks, or even inside electrical outlets.
- Other hiding spots: Bed bugs can hide in a variety of other locations, including picture frames, curtains, cracks around baseboards, carpet edges, and cracks in wooden furniture.
It's important to note that bed bugs are skilled at hiding and can adapt to various environments, so thorough inspection and treatment are necessary to eliminate them effectively.
How Do Bed Bugs Get In Your Home?
Most pests find their way into your home from the outdoors, sneaking in through a crack in the foundation or under a door. Bed bugs, however, are different. These pests hitchhike inside by clinging to your clothing, luggage, backpacks, second-hand furniture, or other fibers. Bed bug infestations can happen to anyone, despite how clean and tidy your home is.
