Bed bugs are tiny, oval-shaped insects that grow to be about 4-5 millimeters long when fully developed. Adult bed bugs have a flattened body with a rust or darker red brown coloration.
Bed bugs have a flattened body that allows them to easily hide in tiny spaces such as baseboards, cracks in floors, beneath carpets, behind loose wallpaper, bed frames, sofas, and pictures frames. Bed bugs prefer to live in groups and major infestations emit a sweet yet foul odour.
Bed bugs are not known to carry diseases, but they can cause itching and irritation. If you think you have bed bugs, it’s important to call a pest control professional for treatment.
If you think you have bed bugs, the first step is to confirm them. Then follow these simple steps:
1. Remove all clutter from the room/area where you found the bed bug(s). This will make it easier for us to treat the area and prevent the bugs from spreading.
2. Vacuum the entire room/area thoroughly, paying special attention to cracks and crevices in furniture and around baseboards. Empty the vacuum bag immediately after use into a plastic bag, seal it tightly, and dispose of it outside in a garbage can.
