Bed Bugs

Bed Bug Identification & Treatment

Bed Bugs are a major pest control problem that can cause unrest in your home. Bed bugs have been known human parasites for thousands of years and have even become increasingly more resistant to pesticides. Many health problems can arise from a bedbug infestation; including skin rashes psychological effects and allergic symptoms. Infestations have been on the rise in recent years due in part to more frequent foreign travel and a greater increase of second hand home furnishing exchanges.

Bedbugs are not completely nocturnal but have the habit of being very active at night, feeding off their hosts unnoticed. Adult bedbugs can grow to 4-5 mm in length and 1.5-3 mm wide. Bedbugs are commonly mistaken for other pests such as booklice and carpet beetles. They are able to stay alive in a wide range of temperatures and atmospheric compositions. They can also live for a year without feeding. Many ways your home can become infested is through your household pets, on clothing or luggage, or even previously infested items such as furniture or clothing that is brought into the house.

Bed Bug Identification

Bed Bugs are blood-sucking insects that are very widespread in the US. Blood meals are necessary for their growth and reproduction. That is why they become established in places where they will easily and frequently have a blood meal. If you suspect you have bed bugs, look for indicators and call Patton Termite & Pest Control immediately.

Bed bugs are small, wingless bugs that are similar in size and shape to an apple seed when fully developed. In younger stages, they can be smaller and lighter in color. Otherwise, they range from brown to a dark brownish red. Sometimes people confuse bed bugs with ticks, but ticks won’t infest your home.


Bed Bug Eggs & Evidence

Bed Bug eggs are often found clustered together in the seams, cracks and crevices of furniture. They look similar to, although much smaller than, a grain of rice. Bed bugs often leave behind evidence of their activity through fecal spotting on furniture. Staining may also occur when the bugs are smashed. 

Patton Termite & Pest Control’s in-house entomologists develop comprehensive plans for treatment. Emergency service is available on nights and weekends. Regularly scheduled pest control in and around your property is important for keeping bed bugs at bay long term.
