Bedbugs are tiny, brown or “clearish” (translucent) color bugs. They are very tiny and barely visible to the human eye when they are baby bed bugs. Bed bug exterminators use special lights to find and identify bedbugs. Your bedbug exterminator will be the best source in identifying whether or not the insects that you have found or cannot find after bites are in fact bed bugs and begin your bed bug removal or bed bug treatment. You can use our bed bug identifier tool (Bed Bugs (aapestpro.com) if you have photos of your insects or bites for faster identification.
It is best to use a bed bug exterminator for your bed bug inspection. If you want to try your own bed bug inspection first, you should start with identifying any bed bug bites. Bed bug bites are usually in a line or cluster and are early signs of bed bugs. Bed bugs bite in groups as they feed and move from one area to another. If you cannot identify the bites, you can send photos to our bed bug exterminators at Bed Bugs (aapestpro.com).
Many times, I have found that bites may not be present. A large percentage of people do not show reactions to bed bug bites. I have found these bed bug infestations to become the worst. The resident may not know that the bed bugs exist because bed bugs hide where most people never look. The resident may only become aware when a guest visits and ends up with bed bug bites or the resident finally sees a bed bug running across the bed, wall or floor.
The next step would be to check the area where you suspect bed bugs are. That may be the bed, chair, or sofa where you first noticed the bed bug bites. Bed bugs hide in the cracks and crevices of furniture. Take your time and check every inch of the furniture with a bright light but be careful because you don’t want to spread the bed bugs to other areas of your home that they may have not already inhabited making your bed bug treatment cost a lot more than it may initially have to. Many times, clients will attempt to treat bed bugs at home with bed bug home remedies or over the counter bed bug treatments. That usually doesn’t go well for the client. If you have a potential bed bug infestation in Virginia you may be able to schedule a free bed bug inspection with All American Pest Control at Bed Bugs (aapestpro.com).
Most bed bug exterminators offer a variety of bed bug treatments. The most popular bed bug treatment is the bed bug heat treatment. It can be done in a variety of ways but the main goal is to safely raise the temperature of the space above the bed bug mortality temperature. This needs to be done carefully and slowly by trained bed bug exterminators. These temperatures may cause damage otherwise and utilizing the wrong equipment or techniques will endanger your life.
Another popular bed bug treatment is the usage of steam, also known as a bed bug steam treatment. This treatment utilizes the same principle as a bed bug heat treatment, using heat to kill the insects and eggs. This treatment is not recommended for large applications. The steam machines can only do small areas at a time and if the steam is not applied directly to each insect for a set period then the bed bug treatment will be insufficient.
Bed bug chemical treatments are also a very popular option It is the inly treatment with residual effects. Residual effects mean that the process is still working after your bed bug exterminator has left. We use the chemical treatment in conjunction with our heat, steam or removal processes.
Bed bugs have been around for as long as any client we have ever had. They were noted back in Roman Times. If you want to know how you got bed bugs, it’ll be hard to determine in most cases. We’ve heard hundreds of different stories of how our clients may have gotten bed bug bites or a bed b ug infestation. Some of our clients had bed bugs from a hotel visit. We like to remind our clients that bed bugs do not discriminate. We have treated for bed bugs at cheap motels as well as million-dollar penthouses. As long as there are human hosts and no professional treatment, bed bugs can thrive. We’ve also had clients with bed bugs from public transportation such as buses and airplanes.
It is usually best to focus on the necessary solutions at hand first and then focus on the original source so that our clients don’t experience a reinfestation. Reinfestations are common, especially in clients who don’t receive professional bed bug treatments at the first sign of bed bugs. After bed bugs have reproduced in your home, you become the host for other infestations in other places.
For example, If you noticed bed bug bites, bed bug eggs or other signs of bed bugs in your home and you’ve attempted to treat for a month before getting a bed bug exterminator, you may have been spreading the bed bugs that entire time. You may have taken the bed bugs to your workplace, vehicle, significant other’s home, etc. during that time.
Now, you’ve finally gotten your home exterminated and your home is safe and clear. The issue is that you may now bring bed bug eggs, bed bug babies or adult bed bugs back from places that you infested. That’s why it is key to use a professional, be honest with that professional and continue with the Integrated Pest Management Program that should be in place.
Heat kills bed bugs instantly. Appropriate heating techniques also known as Thermal Remediation is the best method to kill bed bugs instantly. Thermal Remediation should be followed up with bed bug chemical treatments to offer residual protection. Never attempt a Heat Treatment (Thermal Remediation) on your own. Please contact a Licensed Pest Professional. If you are looking for a bed bug exterminator in Virginia, you can schedule an exterminator at Bed Bugs (aapestpro.com).
The best answer is that it depends. If you have great vision, a great light, know where to look, know what you’re looking for and have a great background behind the insect then you can see a bed bug. Any one of these things being inconsistent or lacking and you may miss a bed bug looking right at you. That’s why a proper bed bug inspection is so important. Your bed bug exterminator will know how to adjust these settings and create the optimal environment for locating your infestation. Baby bed bugs that haven’t fed yet will be almost see through, very tiny and very hard to see even for trained professionals. A thorough bed bug inspection will include inspecting for bed bug eggs, bed bug fecal matter and bed bugs in all life stages to ensure nothing is missed. Oftentimes, the only visible signs may be the bed bugs eggs, bed bug fecal matter and bed bug bites because live bed bugs hide very well. Their ability to hide in the smallest cracks and crevices in your home also make them difficult to see. They don’t typically run around like roaches and other pests unless you have a heavy bed bug infestation.
Yes, bed bugs will hide in your walls. We’ve seen bed bugs enter into walls through outlets, toe kicks and even nail holes where pictures, frames and decorations were hung. This can make it very difficult to exterminate bed bugs with a bed bug chemical treatment and have to be approached with a bed bug heat treatment. The bed bug heat treatment will allow wall cavities and voids to be reached with optimal temperatures, killing them in all bed bug life cycles. This should still be followed up with a bed bug chemical treatmeny.
