Frequently Asked Questions About Bed Bugs
What are bed bugs?
Bed bugs are small parasitic pests known for hiding near human sleeping areas and biting us while we sleep. This behavior is so well known it's what gives them their name.
Even though they are small, bed bugs may be easy to identify once you know what you are looking out for. Adult bed bugs will be oval with six legs, no larger than an apple seed, reddish-brown in color, and wingless. Immature bed bugs are incredibly small and almost translucent, making them more difficult to detect.
After feeding, the apple seed-shaped body of the bed bug swells and elongates, turning a deeper purple-red color. This is when bed bugs are the easiest to spot.
If you see signs of bed bugs on your property, contact Anver Pest Control right away.
Are bed bugs dangerous?
Bed bugs aren't venomous, nor do they directly transmit diseases to those they bite, but they are still a dangerous pest to have around your property. Bed bug bites are itchy and may trigger allergic reactions that range from mild swelling to more severe allergy issues. Individuals dealing with a bed bug infestation may also experience anxiety, insomnia, and stress as these tiny pests crawl around their homes or businesses.
Why do I have a bed bug problem?
It's important to note that bed bugs aren't a result of having a dirty home or business. These pests are opportunistic hitchhikers and hide in clothing or bags if someone accidentally enters an infested area. Blood is the bed bug's only source of nutrition, and they will do all they can to keep finding hosts.
If an area is more cluttered, you may encourage bed bugs that like to hide, but a bed bug problem most commonly starts by accident as you pass through an infested area.
Where will I find bed bugs?
Bed bugs are found in areas with lots of traffic, such as airports, hotels, schools, or libraries. Once they invade your property, they hide around furniture, bedroom items, fabrics, and dark, secluded areas. Bed bug control techniques for your home or business include monitoring and treating these hiding spots.
