Bed Bug Detection: How To Spot And Confirm An Infestation

Let's review all the ways to spot and confirm an infestation. It will enable you to notice early signs of bed bugs and begin treatments early for fast results.

First, you should thoroughly inspect your bed, including your mattress, box spring, and headboard, for everything from live bed bugs to rust-colored stains. Remember to check folds and seams, as bed bugs are adept at hiding. You can use a flashlight to look inside dark crevices.

Additionally, look for bites on your skin. If you find some arranged in clusters or rows, they could be another indicator of bed bug activity.

Still, you could have an infestation without finding definitive evidence. PCC can help you identify them and stop them from feasting on you and your loved ones at night.

Why Bed Bugs Like To Bite Sleeping People

There are many reasons why bed bugs go for people who are asleep. Part of it is because the carbon dioxide we exhale and our body heat attract them. They can detect us through their heat-sensitive antennae and will try to obtain a blood meal when we are least likely to notice them.

Also, we are typically less active when we sleep, making it easier for bed bugs to feed without being disturbed. If these opportunistic feeders are ruining your sleep and multiplying out of control, it is time to learn how to get rid of them for good.

How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs In Your Home For Good

Here are some helpful steps to get rid of bed bugs from your home and keep them out:

  • Clean and declutter: We recommend starting by removing clutter and cleaning thoroughly. It will help you spot bed bugs faster. Vacuum everything from your mattress to your carpets.
  • Look into a professional treatment: At PCC, we favor a liquid treatment called Temprid SC when we find a severe and widespread infestation. We achieve a 98% success rate with this treatment, and it provides up to six months of residual protection.
  • Consider eco-friendly steam treatments: In addition to our liquid treatment, we also steam treat mattresses and box springs for full bed bug elimination.
  • Use encasements and prevention: Bed bug-proof covers can trap any remaining bugs and prevent future infestations. Regular inspections, and inspecting second-hand clothes and furniture, are paramount for long-term protection.
