One of the reasons that it is so challenging to eliminate bed bugs is that they are so hard to find. In contrast to their name, bed bugs do not simply reside in beds, which would make them easier to locate. While they certainly can be found in the mattresses, pillows, sheets, and bed frames, these pests hide in many other places too. For example, upholstery like sofas and chairs, or carpets and rugs, make cozy havens for bed bugs. However, they do not just hide in soft objects. Professional fumigators have been known to find bed bugs hidden in ceiling cracks, along walls, or between duct vents. Even picture frames and toys are not safe from these pests.
Since bed bugs are so good at hiding, homeowners and business owners may find it difficult to locate them at first. This problem is made even more difficult by the fact that bed bugs usually come out right before dawn. While everyone is still asleep, they will venture out to feed before quickly slipping back into their hiding spots. Because they are not out very much, it can be hard to even identify that bed bugs are the culprits for these itchy bites. This is why people should look out for other indicators that they have a bed bug infestation.
It is time to contact a specialist whenever one notices signs of:
- Little shell casings left from the skins of bed bug larvae or egg sacs
- Spots of bed bug feces, which are usually brown or reddish in coloring
- Bad odors from the urine and waste of adult bed bugs
- Blood stains on the bedding and pillows
- Small red or purplish bites that are about a quarter-inch in diameter and usually highly itchy
Bed bugs are very accomplished travelers. They can easily hitch a ride on any piece of used furniture, as well as suitcases, backpacks, and purses. They may cling to clothing, fur, or any item that has been placed in a previously infested location. This is why no area is necessarily spared from bed bugs for good. Seeking regular sprays from our techs at Dick’s Fumigation, ideally every 3 months, is a great way for keeping them at bay.
