What Are Bed Bugs?

Though bed bugs are not the most potentially harmful pest that can enter your home, they can cause one of the most disturbing infestations in your household. Bed bugs strike when you’re most vulnerable as you sleep since they feed on blood during the nighttime hours. These sneaky bugs can enter your home easily, and they will stick around without professional intervention from your local pest control company. If you suspect that bed bugs are lurking in your home, you will not want to hesitate to call Hydrex Pest & Termite Co. Keep reading to learn why our professional services are essential in eliminating bed bugs and preventing future infestations. Learn more about bed bugs below, and contact our team at (818) 306-5349 for comprehensive bed bug control today!

How Bed Bugs Enter Your Home

Bed bugs are small, parasitic insects of the cimicid family that feeds on the blood of larger organisms to survive. They are brownish and color and ovalish in shape, and have flat bodies about the size of an apple seed. Bed bugs do not build nests like ants or bees but instead live in groups in places where they can burrow close to their main source of blood: people. Bed bugs’ name comes from their tendency to burrow in mattresses — though bed bugs also live in other furniture and carpeting and often enter homes through luggage or clothing.

Identifying bed bugs is the first step toward treating the problem. Because bed bugs are skilled at hiding and they are most active at night, your first indication of these tiny pests may be itchy bites on your skin. Let’s take a closer look at the telltale signs of bed bugs that can alert you to call Hydrex for professional pest control.

Visible Bugs – Bed bugs are very small—about the size of an apple seed. They are dark brown or red in color, and they tend to hide in dark corners, cracks, and crevices where they are less likely to be seen. If you do see any number of bed bugs, you can be sure that more are hiding elsewhere, because these creatures are known to reproduce rapidly in large numbers.

Bites – Waking up with small, red spots on your skin may be an indication of bed bugs, since these critters are known for biting to feed on blood. Bites may be itchy or painful, and they will mostly appear in areas of exposed skin, such as the neck, arms, and shoulders.

Droppings and Case Skins – Even if you don’t see live bed bugs, you might still identify them by what they leave behind. Case skins and droppings—which appear as brown or black stains on porous surfaces and small mounds on non-porous surfaces—can let you know that bed bugs have taken up shelter in your home.
