Important Considerations:

  • Bed bugs are nocturnal and can be hard to detect during the day.
  • Unfortunately, bed bug bites can be mistaken for mosquito bites, and some people show no reaction to bed bug bites, so problems can fester for a while before they are noticed.
  • Bites from bed bugs are painful and itchy.
  • Bed bugs can spread quickly and can often be acquired by accidental exposure at hotels or other people’s homes.


Where to Find Them on Your Property?

Bed bugs feed on humans as they sleep. Because of this, they congregate on or near places in which people sleep. They can be found on headboards, bedside tables, wallpaper, paneling, baseboards, mattresses, bedding, and personal belongings.
