WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE?
DESCRIPTION

– Adult bed bugs are flat, oval-shaped and have a reddish-brown color.
– Newly hatched nymphs are nearly colorless.

– Bed bug eggs are white and are about 1/32” long.
– Bed bugs may give off a sweet, yet unpleasant smell.

BED BUG LIFE CYCLE

-Bed bugs have six life stages (five immature, one adult).
– Females can lay 1-12 eggs per day or 200-500 eggs in a lifetime.
– Bed bug eggs hatch in 6 to 17 days and nymphs can start to feed right away.
– The life cycle (from egg to adult) takes anywhere from five weeks to four months, depending on temperature and availability of food (blood).
– When temperatures are 70 to 82 degrees, their life cycle development occurs most rapidly.
– Bed bugs are nocturnal and feed exclusively on blood.
– If seen during the day, it may mean that there is a heavier level of infestation.
– Bed bugs can live for a year without feeding, however they typically try to feed every five to ten days.

BITE MARKS ARE NOT A GOOD INDICATION OF BED BUG ACTIVITY. HERE’S WHAT TO LOOK FOR…

-The first signs of bed bug activity are often the appearance of small rusty spots on mattresses, pillow cases and on bed linens.
– Eggs and eggshells, which are tiny (about 1 mm) and white.
– Bite marks are not a good indication of bed bug activity. Reactions to bed bug bites vary among people and some people have no reactions to their bites at all. Bed bug bite marks can look similar to other insect bites or the marks can be the skin’s reaction to an unrelated source. For these reasons, bite marks are typically not a good indication of bed bug activity.

At this time, we offer pesticide applications. These services are very cost effective and work very well at eliminating bed bugs when preparations are made by the homeowner prior to service. These preparations are outlined in a preparation checklist that we provide prior to the initial treatment. On average, we typically do three service visits to eliminate bed bugs in single family homes, however, the number of services can be greater and the number of services to be conducted is typically determined upon an on-site inspection.
