What To Expect From The Bed Bugs In Denver

Bed bugs are fairly common pests that consume human blood—ordinarily, while their victim is soundly asleep. Bed bugs are wingless creatures with a reddish-brown appearance that use their antennae for navigational purposes and crawl toward humans using their six legs. Although they will also target animals, humans are the preferred source of nourishment. As resilient pests, often professional treatment is necessary for fully removing infestations.

How do bed bugs get in your house? While many of the home-invading pests that Denver homeowners will encounter enter the premises through small openings from outdoor areas, bed bugs function as hitchhikers. In the vast majority of instances, homeowners inadvertently carry belongings such as purses, laundry baskets, or suitcases into the home containing these pests. Travelers are among the most susceptible to bed bug exposure in hotel rooms and active hubs for mass transportation.

A local Denver pest control company employs a staff of qualified pros who understand various ways to get rid of bed bugs in your home and can offer you a variety of suggestions regarding how to prevent bed bugs naturally.

Can You See Bed Bugs In Your Home?

Adult bed bugs in Denver usually measure approximately 1/5 of an inch long, making them somewhat visible to the naked eye.

Are you wondering how to tell if you have bed bugs inside your residence? Look for red blood stains or dark smears of feces on pillowcases, sheets, and other bedding materials.

What do bed bug eggs look like in your home? Female bed bugs produce tiny eggs roughly the size of a pinhead that often appears off-white. After hatching, young bed bugs (nymphs) emerge that appear almost translucent until becoming engorged with their first blood meal.

What It's Like To Have A Bed Bug Infestation In Your Home

Although bed bugs are not associated with diseases, those struggling with an infestation often experience sleepless nights and significant feelings of anxiety.

Are bed bug bites itchy? Yes. The majority of those victimized by bed bugs will notice red, irritated, and itchy areas of skin. In some cases, the bite mark is darker in the center, and the surrounding area is much lighter.

All The Places Bed Bugs Could Be Hiding In Your Home

Being primarily nocturnal pests that prefer emerging after dark and pursuing a blood meal, bed bugs generally will remain out of sight during the day. Bed bugs will easily navigate through spaces below baseboards, behind most wall-mounted furnishings, and in other hidden places due to having a fairly small and flat body. In the absence of live or dead bugs, homeowners must recognize the likely signs of bed bug activity.
