Bed Bugs

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are small insects; adults grow to about the size of an apple seed. They are oval and flattened from top to bottom, allowing them to hide between feedings. Some of their favorite hideouts are near where we sleep, such as the cracks and crevices of beds, box springs, headboards, and footboards. Bed bugs only feed on warm-blooded animal blood, and unfortunately, people are their favorite hosts.

Bed bugs are difficult for people to identify as their appearance changes depending on their life stage and whether they have recently fed. For example, before feeding, adults having a flattened body that is reddish-brown, but after feeding, they turn a dark purplish-red color and become more capsule-like in shape.

  • Are bed bugs dangerous?
    Bed bugs are considered a public health threat; they bite us, and those allergic to their saliva may develop a severe reaction, and the bite sites may become infected.

  • Why do I have a bed bug problem?

    There are many reasons why bed bugs have become such a problem in recent decades. Some of the most popular theories include ease and affordability of travel and insecticide resistance. Whatever the reason, bed bugs are here, and they can find a way into any home or business in Denver or Omaha.

    The bed bug’s biggest concern is that people are available to feed on, not what their accommodations look like. An infestation can occur anywhere there are people, and because bed bugs live indoors, they are active year-round.

    Below are some common places to come into contact with bed bugs:

    • Work or school
    • Libraries, museums, movie theaters
    • Airports, bus stations, train stations
    • Hotels, motels, or resorts
    • Family or friend’s homes
    • Shopping centers
    • Healthcare facilities
    • Laundry mats
  • Where will I find bed bugs?

    Bed bugs can be hard to find and identify. They are small in size and stay well-hidden in dark, tight spaces throughout our homes during the day. Knowing where bed bugs like to hide is very helpful; the sooner you can identify an infestation, the sooner you can get rid of them.

    Some of the bed bug’s favorite hiding spots include:

    • The seams of mattresses and box springs. (This provides them easy access to their favorite food sources.)
    • Pet beds.
    • Inside electrical outlets.
    • Under piles of clutter or piles of dirty laundry.
    • Upholstered furniture or rugs.
    • Cracks in walls or behind baseboards.
