Frequently Asked Questions About Bed Bugs

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are tiny parasitic pests primarily known for their preference of feeding on sleeping humans and infesting bedrooms. This pest is small, typically not growing larger than a quarter inch, and they are approximately the same size and shape as an apple seed. Bed bugs are flat, and they will either appear dark brown, black, or reddish-brown in color, depending on when they last fed.

Infestations of this pest typically start unnoticed, and professional bed bug control in Syracuse is essential to stop these insects from growing out of control on your property.

Are bed bugs dangerous?

While bed bugs aren’t known to directly spread bacteria and pathogens around a property, they are still dangerous to encounter. Bed bug bites are itchy and often result in swelling, redness, and pain; these bites typically appear in a zig-zag line down limbs that are exposed overnight. Secondary infections may occur around bed bug bites due to scratching, and the fear, stress, and anxiety surrounding bed bugs commonly cause sleep and comfort issues.

Eradicate bed bugs from your home or business to avoid these dangers.

Why do I have a bed bug problem?

Many people think that bed bugs only inhabit dirty properties, but that simply isn’t true. While clutter does make it easier for bed bugs to hide, this pest is opportunistic and will hide in clothing, bags, and luggage as needed to find a safe sheltering area and plenty of hosts. The most common way to pick up a bed bug problem is by traveling or staying in an infested area, or moving an infested item into your property.

Where will I find bed bugs?

Bed bugs, true to their name, and typically found in sleeping quarters. They prefer to hide around the corners of mattresses, around pillows and sheets, or in the cracks of bedroom furniture. You may also find bed bugs along furniture seams, cracks in appliances, around walls and electrical outlets, or even hiding in stored fabrics.
