Identifying Bed Bugs in Your Glendale-Area Home
Bed bugs are small parasites that require a host organism to survive. They tend to live in groups, often finding settings where they can burrow, such as mattresses, furniture, or carpeting. They have a distinct oval shape and flat bodies that are roughly the size of an apple seed. Because of their brownish color, they may be able to blend into their surroundings. To identify these pests in your home, look for:
- Visible bugs – Despite their size, you may be able to see these creatures when cleaning or changing bedding. They tend to hide in dark corners or crevices, but disruption to their environment may make them noticeable. You may also find red stains that result from crushing the bugs in your sleep.
- Bites – Though less reliable as a determining factor, if you wake up with small, red spots on your skin, you may have a bed bug problem. Itchy, painful bites should prompt a call to Hydrex Pest Control for an inspection.
- Droppings or case skins – Bed bugs will leave behind case skins or droppings, which may stain your bedding material.
