About Bed Bugs
bed bug

Bed Bugs are becoming more and more prevalent in the media with infestations increasing throughout the country. It’s important for you to be aware of the implications an infestation can cause if they are transported into your home. Once bed bugs have entered your home, it’s not an easy task to remove them. They’re are about the length of the eraser on the end of a pencil (6-7mm long) with flattened bodies. In their adult stage, bed bugs are brown to orange in color with elongated beaks with which they use to take blood from their food source.They favor conditions with 75-80% relative humidity and temperatures around 80 degrees, although they can remain active in temperatures as low as 44 degrees. Bed bugs prefer to reside in warm, dark places…usually the cracks and crevices of your bed so they are near their food source. infestations happen quickly and can be difficult to control if not treated in the early stages.

Bed Bug Prevention Tips

Because bed bugs travel well, they are easily transported into your home from other sites of infestation…such as hotel rooms, friends or relatives’ homes, college students’ dorm rooms or apartments, etc…by getting into your luggage and clothes. It’s also common to bring them into your home with used furniture or second-hand clothing. To avoid this:

  • Inspect all luggage from traveling before bringing it into your home
  • Wash all your clothes immediately before hanging them in your closets
  • Leave any suitcases or bags in a garage, storage room, or other area that is not close to the rooms you and your family sleep in
  • When traveling, check your bed before sleeping for signs of bed bugs

  • When traveling, do not put your clothing or suitcases on the beds and keep luggage zipped when not in use
  • Utilize the luggage stand most hotels provide to keep items away from floors & walls
  • Inspect second hand furniture closely before bringing it into your home
