Where do you find Bed Bugs

Locations & favorite spots

They hide in cracks and crevices close to where humans are as they feed on blood.  This includes: Under mattresses, bed frames, head boards,  box springs, baseboards and picture frames so they are typically found  in bedrooms.  However they can travel great distances in search for food  so they can be found in any room.  

When do you kknow if you have Bed Bugs

Breeding habits & what this means for you

It is a bit difficult to know when you have bed bugs. They are mostly  active at night when you are asleep. They feed on your blood from 3 to  10 minutes then crawl away.  The bites will not usually hurt at first  but may cause welts that will itch.  The best way is looking for blood  spots on your sheets or other areas you rest. There are no definitive  tests that can be done to tell if your bites were truly from a bed bug –  the only definitive is finding the actual bed bugs themselves.

Why use Button Pest Control for your Bed Bug Problem

Why use Button Pest Control?

Bed bugs are not a result of poor sanitation or social status therefore  anyone can have them.  They can travel in luggage and clothing, or can  be found in used furniture, and this is usually how someone gets them.   They can live up to a year without food and can lay 1 to 5 eggs a day,  which means if left untreated you can have a major infestation fairly quick. Hotels and Motels are especially susceptible to bed bugs because  of the volume of guests and the ease at which they can travel.   Avoiding a room permanently or throwing away all items in a room will  most likely NOT eliminate bed bugs. This is because as said above they hide in small cracks and crevices and can move around the entire property. Pest control service is needed to find, treat and rid you of your bed bugs. We have both LIQUID & HEAT treatment options. Contact us today for a FREE bed bug inspection.
