Frequently Asked Questions
I think I have bed bugs!! What do I do now?
Try to remain as calm as possible. When bed bugs are present, they leave behind evidence. In our experience, our customer’s find droppings (black marks or dots that resemble a ball point pen or permanent marker stain), eggs (similar to grains of white rice), cast skins (look like an empty shell of a bed bug), or live bed bugs.
How can I determine if I have bed bugs?
We often recommend beginning with some form of monitoring. If you haven’t observed any of the typical bed bug signs, or evidence we mentioned above, we find it is most helpful to put some monitoring strategies in place. Our most common recommendation is to utilize interceptor or climb up traps, insect glue traps or insect monitors. These typically go under or next to the feet of the area of concern (bed, couch, chair, etc). The goal is to attempt to obtain a specimen so we can determine what type of pest you’re dealing with…
BUT… I HAVE BITES!!!!!!
This is by far the most common call we receive. If you have bites, the most important thing to do is rule out other pests or something non-pest related. This is why we always suggest monitoring whenever the evidence are bites alone. When bed bugs feed (i.e., bite) they process their meal and leave behind their droppings. This also most likely means they’re growing and therefore shedding their exoskeleton (cast skin) or laying eggs. Thus, when bites are present, we should be finding other forms of evidence. Given that bites can be related to a number of pests and present for a variety of reasons, alone, they’re never a good indicator of bed bug activity.
I have an older mattress/dark sheets/poor lighting in my room… How will I be able to see them?
This is a great question! Sometimes, bed bug activity can be difficult to find. HOWEVER, bed bugs are good hiders, but they’re not as stealth as they may seem. Whenever this question comes up, we often recommend the use of mattress and box spring encasements. These fully zip around the mattress and/or box spring to protect these items. As the surface is bright white, the hope is any activity will be more readily seen when inspecting and monitoring. Also, for peace of mind, it may be helpful to use lightly colored sheets and bedding to assess if activity is present.
