Bed bugs were a problem decades ago when DDT was underneath everyone’s household kitchen sink. This many years later, bed bugs have made a comeback. They are much more resilient due to adaptation to the overuse of such chemicals, but also because the types of pest control products available today are not as deadly and much more conscious of our health concerns.
Bed bugs are effectively controlled today with the right partnership and intelligent strategies. Various methods, such as Thermal Remediation, in conjunction with conventional products and cautious monitoring are very successful when done right. Bed bugs are NOT a DIY pest and if you think you might have them, contacting a professional sooner rather than later for expert bed bug solutions will help gain control of a problem quicker.
How to Identify a Bed Bug
Depending on life cycle stage, bed bugs can range from translucent yellowish (newly hatched) to rusty brown (adult stages) and even bright red after a blood meal. Unfed, bed bugs are flat and oval, yellow to golden brown with a dark squiggle on their abdomen (that’s their digestive system). After a blood meal, they’re plump and reddish brown (because they’re filled with blood).
As their name implies, bed bugs like to live and feed in beds, where you spend a long amount of time at rest, so they can take advantage of you, their food source. They also live behind baseboards, wallpaper, picture frames, drapery folds, upholstery, in pet beds, and in furniture crevices. They are transferred from one place to the next by hitchhiking in or on suitcases, boxes, purses and shoes. Elusive and nocturnal, they make their presence known most often through the red, itchy bites they leave behind. At this time, they have not been known to transmit diseases.
Blood; primarily human, but bed bugs will dine on any warm-blooded animal.

Undoubtedly some of the best customer service I’ve ever received.
“It’s been such a difficult time knowing that I have had bed bugs living in my home (trust me, there were a lot of bed bugs….) but this team has made it significantly easier for me during this time. Ryan has been completely understanding and has already gone above and beyond to help. Almost immediately after I learned about the problem (yesterday), he already has a team out to treat it right now. Their technician to treat has been doing this for 41 yeas, best in the business! Undoubtedly some of the best customer service I’ve ever received. Seriously the chik-fil-e of pest control. Thank you, team.”
