How To Know If You Have Bed Bugs Living In Your NY, NJ or CT Bedroom

Appearance

3/16″ with an oval-flat like appearance and six legs.

Habitat

Bed bugs live on and in mattresses, headboards, drawers, lamp covers and nearly everywhere in and around a bed. They feed off human blood. Female bed bugs can lay 1-5 eggs per day. Early stages of a bed bug’s life are hard to see in plain view as they are small, clear or white eggs. Bed bugs will only come out at night, however if the infestation is bad, you will see activity during the day. Brown spots and small oval like bugs will grant bed bug activity.

How do they affect me?

Bed bugs suck your blood. They travel easily and guests staying over have a high chance of contracting them. They do not transmit any known diseases. They will leave small bite marks that are similar to a mosquito bite. Allergic reactions are common, creating a large, itchy rash on your body.

What should I do?

Get a bed bug inspection. We recommend a K-9 inspection as they are more accurate then a human inspection. If activity is found, we will come and treat the necessary rooms. All the clothing in these rooms must be thoroughly washed and kept in bags. Bed bug elimination is a service we offer, and a free consultation is recommended.
