Everything You (Never) Wanted To Know About Bed Bugs

Although most people would rather not know where bed bugs live or what they eat, understanding these pests’ behavior and habits is crucial in effectively controlling them. Just like vampires, these pests feed on human blood, typically while their hosts are asleep. But unlike vampires, bed bugs are a very real threat to the well-being of your family and don’t require an invitation.

Bed bugs hide in dark, hard-to-see spaces and remain dormant during daytime hours until it’s time for their nighttime blood meal, making them difficult to detect without a professional inspection. You may find them in mattresses, box spring and bed frame areas, bed sheets and clothes, within upholstered furniture, or just about any place where people sleep. Their ability to survive without feeding for months makes them especially challenging to get rid of once they’ve infested an entire home.

The life cycle of bed bugs is a fascinating yet concerning aspect of their biology. From egg to nymph to adult, most bed bugs undergo several molts, requiring blood meals at each stage to grow and reproduce. This cycle can repeat several times within a year as females lay eggs, making it difficult to determine how many bed bugs are living in your house at any given time.

Because bed bugs live and breed in this way, professional intervention is a crucial part of bed bug treatment. If you think you have noticed bed bugs in your house, NEVER wait to contact a professional bed bug exterminator — schedule an inspection right away. You might be tempted to try other methods first such as DIY “quick fix” ideas, but we promise that effective methods involve working with a professional exterminator. Developing and executing a complete bed bug treatment plan based on proven elimination methods is the only way to get rid of bed bugs for good.

Warning Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation

It isn’t always easy to tell when you need residential bed bug control and removal services, but there are a few specific signs to watch out for. Call a pest control professional if you notice any of these issues that can signify bed bug infestations:

Itchy Bite Marks

One of the most common signs of a bed bug infestation is waking up with itchy red welts on your skin. While bed bug bites can look different depending on your skin type, the bites often appear in clusters and can cause discomfort and irritation.

Blood Stains on Sheets

Finding small blood stains on your sheets, pillowcases, clothes, walls, or floors is another common indicator of bed bug infestations. Contrary to what you might initially assume, these stains aren’t from bed bug bites on your body — they actually result from bed bugs being crushed while feeding, leaving behind evidence of their presence. Book bed bug removal service ASAP and we’ll be there to remove all adult, egg, and immature bed bugs from your home.

Musty Odor

A musty or sweet odor in your bedroom can be a sign of bed bugs. These insects release pheromones that can create a distinctive smell in areas where they are concentrated. If you’ve cleaned your carpets, furniture, and mattresses, but still can’t banish that “funky” odor, it’s time to call a bed bug exterminator for a professional bed bug inspection.

Visible Shed Skins

As bed bugs grow, feed, breed, and go through their life cycle, they shed their exoskeletons, leaving behind translucent skins. Finding the shed skins of bed bugs around a mattress, bedding, or furniture in any room where people sleep or spend time is a clear sign of an infestation.

Live Bed Bugs

Discovering live bed bugs or eggs, especially in the seams of your mattress, along baseboards, under furniture, or anywhere else in the room in question, is a definitive sign that you have a bed bug problem that requires immediate attention. Mature bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed and can be seen with the naked eye, making them one of the more detectable types of pest once an infestation becomes severe.

Don’t Try DIY Bed Bug Treatment: Why You Should Hire Pros to Eliminate Bed Bugs

It may be tempting to start buying treatment chemicals galore as soon as you discover a single bed bug hidden in your sheets or clinging to your furniture… but WAIT! Whatever you do, do not release a fogger or “bug bomb,” and do not allow anyone to do so — not even a so-called exterminator. Bug bombs and foggers do not work for bed bugs and can even spread them, magnifying the problem. At Anchor Pest Control, we utilize time-tested bed bug treatment strategies to eliminate bed bugs for good. So before you grab that cart full of chemicals, take a moment to learn a little more about why we don’t recommend DIY bed bug treatment:

Not All Pesticides Are Alike

Different pesticides have different qualities (repellents, contact killers, residual killers, growth regulators, etc.). Bed bugs are probably the most complicated pests you’ve ever encountered — if you start spraying pesticides, you may disperse them, and our professionals may have trouble treating them. In the worst case scenario, you could even end up spreading them.

We Have the Tools, Team, & Training

Our pest-busting team is equipped with specialized tools and possesses the training necessary to safely and effectively find bed bugs and kill them. From high heat treatments to disinfecting infested items, we have the resources to tackle any bed bug problem for a reasonable price. Plus, as one of the Tri-State Area’s leading pest control companies, we also have the skills to handle a variety of other pest issues, including but not limited to termites, carpenter ants, rodents, and other creepy-crawlies.

We Kill ‘Em At the Source

Eliminating a bed bug infestation isn’t just about treating the symptoms; it’s about addressing the root cause, including all hiding spots. Our residential and commercial pest control bed bug interceptors can find where bed bugs hide and eliminate them at the source, whether you have infested furniture legs, a compromised box spring, or even bed bugs trapped inside picture frames. We also provide early detection services to prevent bed bugs from returning if you’ve had a problem in the past.
