Bed bugs; you can't live with them and you want to do everything possible to ensure you live without them. The elusive and tiny blood-sucking bug is a menace across the globe. They love to travel from place to place and set up residence wherever a free buffet is being served, which means you, your family, and your friends. Bed bugs invade the rich and famous, five-star hotels, and luxury cruise ships the same as they do homes, condos, and apartments. When bed bugs are present, you need a plan of action.

If you're red and itchy for no known reason, you may have bedbugs. These tiny, oval-shaped insects move from one place to another via humans, since they don't have wings. Their favorite dish is blood from humans and animals and are most active during the night hours. The health effects of bed bug bites and the long term side effects of bed bug bites may be worse for some people and minor for others. But no matter how bedbugs affect you, you should look for bed bug disease symptoms. If you find symptoms, you should contact your doctor.

Early detection of a bed bug infestation in your home could be the difference between a minor inconvenience and costly treatments if the infestation is allowed to spread and become established.

However, early detection can be difficult. 

Bed bugs are difficult to find and resemble many other common insects.

Where to look: Carefully examine areas where you suspect a bed bug infestation.  It is especially important to inspect fitted sheets, the seams and corners of the mattress and box springs, as well as the bed frame.  In a heavier infestation, bed bugs can be found in the seams of chairs and couches, under loose wall paper, at wall junctions, and in carpet seams.

What to look for: Look for live bed bugs, eggs (tiny and pale yellow), or rust-colored stains caused by crushed bed bugs. You can also use an interception device to detect low-level bed bug infestations. These devices can be placed under the legs of beds and couches and trap bed bugs as they instinctively move around your home. Another tool you can use is mattress and box spring encasements, as these have been expressly designed and tested for bed bugs. As an added bonus, mattress and box spring encasements will also prevent future infestations of your mattress and box spring.

If You Find Bed Bugs in Your Home: Contact us at Clint Miller Exterminating right away to find out your treatment options. And while you wait for our experienced technician to arrive at your home, dry all your bed linens on high heat, remove everything from your hallway and bedroom closets, empty dresser drawers and nightstands, and vacuum floors, furniture, box springs, and mattresses.
