Bed bugs are small, about 1/4" in length, and reddish in color.  They can be found in cracks, behind baseboards, under the edge of carpets, bed sheets and mattresses but they aren't limited to these areas.  Their food source is blood and their bite sometimes continues to bleed after the bed bug has withdrawn.

Quite often the bed bugs themselves are not seen but the bite marks they leave behind point toward an infestation.  Bed bugs feed at night on sleeping humans and generally, the bite is not felt.

Bed bugs are making a comeback in the United States.  For years, the use of chemicals that are now banned kept them under control but recently they are being found in homes as well as hotels, motels and other areas of high international and national travel. 

Bed Bug Control

  • As with any insect infestation a thorough inspection should be conducted initially.
  • A bed bug infestation should be treated by a professional who will be equipped to treat with the proper chemicals and equipment.
  • Bedding materials must be laundered thoroughly to eliminate any insects or eggs.
  • Mattress and box spring covers are a quick way to control a bed bug infestation. The covers must be labeled for dust mites and bed bugs.
  • Call or email to request information or an appointment for an inspection and/or treatment of the problem.
