Signs Of A Bed Bug Problem
What does a bed bug look like? These insects have uniquely shaped bodies. They are typically oval, and flat. Coloring varies between brown and old brick red. They are typically sized between 1/6th and 1/8th inches.
Where do they hide? Bed bugs got their name because they frequently hide beneath and around beds. That isn’t the only place they hide though. Bed bugs like warm areas, and frequently hide in electronics, outlets, and heaters.
Why is there blood on my mattress? Bed bugs hide right after they feed. They are often crushed by sleeping victims. Look for dried spots of blood on sheets and mattresses.
Is that a bed bug egg? When bed bugs hatch they leave behind their egg casings. These appear as small white pearls. Growing bed bugs also shed their exoskeletons.
What do bed bug feces look like? Often appearing like dried pepper, this can be found in mattress corners and creases.
The Dangers Of Bed Bugs
They bite the exposed skin of sleeping victims, and these cause itchy red welts. These insects can also transmit diseases like Chagas. When bed bug control in Phoenix is delayed, property owners may unwittingly spread an infestation.
This can affect friends and family, keeping the cycle active. If you suspect you are dealing with an infestation, look for these indicators.

Pesticides – Applications typically require multiple visits. Our technicians know where to spray to provide maximum effectiveness. We take the room, use, and area into account so spraying only occurs in specific areas so as to mitigate unnecessary exposure.
Inorganic Materials – We may strategically apply materials designed to wear away the exoskeletons of the insects. This causes the exposed bed bugs to dry out and die.
Heat Treatments – Bed bugs hide in specific areas and depending on how bad the problem is a heat treatment may be best. There a number of different ways this can be accomplished. Our technicians will consult with you regarding timing, scope, and the results you hope to achieve.
