What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are small parasitic insects that belong to the genus Cimex. They are known for biting sleeping humans to sustain themselves with their blood, leaving behind itchy red bumps in a zig-zag line. Bed bugs are sneaky, and a bed bug infestation can quickly grow out of control around your property, leaving you battling these insects as they hide around sleeping quarters, and once the infestation grows, in furniture and inside walls. A professional bed bug treatment provided by B&T Pest Control is the best way to combat and control these pests.

Are bed bugs dangerous?

While bed bugs aren’t known for carrying diseases or pathogens into homes, they bite humans to feed on their blood. Bed bug bites can be dangerous as they are itchy and may result in secondary infection due to individuals scratching at the bites. Additionally, bed bug bites can trigger allergic reactions and cause insomnia or anxiety due to lack of sleep. Bed bug control is essential if you want to avoid the threats these pests pose once they infiltrate your home.

Why do I have a bed bug problem?

Often, individuals will not notice when bed bugs invade their homes until it is too late. Bed bugs are sneaky and will hide in your luggage, clothing, or bags as you travel through an infected area, hitching a ride back to your house, where they climb out and start a new infestation. If you have recently passed through a bed bug hot spot such as a hotel or motel, airport, library, or school, you can likely trace your bed bug problem to that area.

Where will I find bed bugs?

Around your property, you can find bed bugs hiding out on mattresses and bed springs (sleeping quarters are their favorite), around dressers or other pieces of furniture, in the cracks of wallpaper, around electrical or other utility outlets, or in unsuspecting locations such as stuffed toys, the interior of lighting fixtures, and in electronic devices. The experts at B&T Pest Control can help you with identifying every hiding bed bug around your property.
