  • Where will I find bed bugs?
    Typically, bed bugs gather around sleeping areas, such as bed frames, mattresses, pillows, and bedroom furniture, but they can also infest other areas of your property. The seams of furniture, areas around electrical or utility outlets, stuffed animals, and even lighting fixtures can all host bed bugs waiting for a chance to bite someone and obtain a meal.
  • Why do I have a bed bug problem?

    Most bed bug infestations become an issue due to unsuspecting individuals traveling through infested areas and picking up bed bugs in their clothing, bags, or luggage. As you travel to these infested locations and return home, bed bugs move along with you, eventually crawling out to infest areas in your house they deem safe.

    Bed bug infestations are also caused by bringing secondhand items into your home or business without first checking them for signs of bed bugs.

  • Are bed bugs dangerous?
    While bed bugs aren't known for spreading diseases or illnesses to humans, bed bug bites are still a serious issue. Bed bug bites are incredibly itchy and may result in secondary infections due to scratching. Additionally, the presence of bed bugs around your property may result in insomnia or other sleeping issues, anxiety, and stress. It's important to invest in bed bug control before these pests become widespread and difficult to eradicate from your property.
  • What are bed bugs?
    Bed bugs are small parasitic insects that are typically no different in shape or size than an apple seed. Depending on when they last fed, they appear dark brown to reddish-brown and are notorious for invading our sleeping spaces, though they can invade all areas of a home or business. Bed bugs are prolific, and infestations of these pests may quickly grow out of control and result in serious health and safety issues if you don't employ proper bed bug treatment tactics.
