What Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are small insects that are about the size of an apple seed when fully grown. They are reddish brown in color and can go unnoticed for a long time because they are nocturnal. Bed bugs feed on the blood of humans and animals while they are sleeping. They are most active at night but can be seen during the day if you look closely. If you notice small, reddish brown, pinhead-sized dots on your mattress or sheets, you may have bed bugs.

Signs You Have a Bed Bug Infestation

Signs that you have a bed bug infestation include:

  • Red, itchy bites on your skin (often in a line)
  • Blood spots on your sheets or mattress
  • The presence of shed skins
  • An unpleasant odor
  • The presence of live bed bugs

If you notice any of the above signs, you may have bed bugs. It is important to look closely at your mattress, box spring, and bed frame to look for signs of bed bugs. It is also important to look at your sheets and pillowcases to look for signs of bed bugs.

Prevent Bed Bug Infestations in Your Home

While it's important to know how to identify and deal with a bed bug infestation, preventing one from happening in the first place is even better. Taking proactive measures to protect your home can save you time, money, and the stress of dealing with these pesky pests.

Here are some tips to help prevent bed bug infestations:

  • Inspect second-hand furniture and clothing: Before bringing any used furniture or clothing into your home, thoroughly inspect them for any signs of bed bugs. Look for dark stains, shed skins, or live bugs.
  • Be cautious when traveling: Bed bugs can hitch a ride on your luggage or clothing when you travel. Inspect hotel rooms for any signs of bed bugs before settling in.
  • Keep a clean and clutter-free home: Bed bugs thrive in cluttered environments, so keeping your home tidy can help prevent infestations. Regularly vacuum your floors, mattresses, and furniture.
  • Use protective covers: Encase your mattresses and box springs in bed bug-proof covers to prevent them from infesting these areas.
  • Seal cracks and crevices: Bed bugs can hide in tiny cracks and crevices, so seal them up to eliminate potential hiding spots.

By following these preventative measures, you can significantly reduce the risk of a bed bug infestation in your home. However, if you do suspect an infestation, it's important to contact a professional pest control company like Venables Pest Management for effective and thorough bed bug control.
