We Know Bed Bugs! Learn About Us & How We Work For You

Bed bugs are fairly tiny critters and with brownish colored bodies, they are easily camouflaged into the nooks and crannies they feel secluded and secure in. With their incognito habits, sometimes the only tell tale signs of their infestation are the line of bug bites found up your arm or shoulder area, along with tiny blood stains on your sheets.

They are nocturnal and only come out to feed, especially if their life cycles are increasing to the next stage. They generally feed every night but can go up to a week without sustenance. Being that they do crave a late night snack, they tend to stick to areas where the meals are convenient, hence the name bed bugs.

They can be sheltered in mattress divots, head boards, spring box, linens and bed frames. But bed bugs don’t stop there, as they increase in population, they will spread out. Spilling into locations throughout your home or business, bed bugs can literally be anywhere.

To avoid unsafe chemicals and for more efficient extermination, we at The Bed Bug Inspectors use a thermal heating method, an organic heat treatment or a comprehensive pet-freindly and human-friendly chemical treatment to kill the bed bugs.

Thermal Bed Bug Heat Treatment + Organic Bed Bug Treatment

The thermal heat method is a superior choice in terminating bed bugs. It is safe, non-toxic and eco-friendly. By applying the correct heating temperatures throughout the building, we can eliminate bed bugs and their eggs, no matter where they try and hide. Bed bugs are destroyed through walls, under floorboards, virtually anywhere they could be hiding.

Bed bugs and their eggs cannot survive in high temperatures. We use a temperature high enough that we recommend finding other activities to do outside while we perform the service. There are minimum preparations needed before the service and afterwards, our professionals at The Bed Bug Inspector will consult with you on any questions or any further instructions.

Starting with the use of DDT after WWII, continuing through the 1970s, bed bugs had nearly been eradicated from New York and the rest of the western world. By the 1980s we enjoyed a relatively bed bug free existence and became complacent about bed bug inspections and treatment. In the late 1990s, because of increased international travel and the decline of residual pesticide use in buildings, bed bugs returned with a vengeance. This is particularly true in heavily populated areas of Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. The National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC) reports a disturbing upward trend in the percentage of bed bug inquiries made to their hotline. In 2003, the number of calls regarding bed bugs was negligible – less than 1%. By 2014, that figure jumped as bed bugs accounted for nearly 6% of all calls. The situation in schools is even more alarming. Schools in New York reported 1,000 infestations for the 2009-2010 school year. This number leaped to 4,000 reported infestations in the following year. As this disturbing trend continues, New Yorkers are becoming more vigilant about preventing infestations in their homes, schools and offices. The first step to protecting a space is to conduct regular bed bug inspections for early detection of a problem. One reason bed bugs are difficult to control is that people often have incorrect facts about them or don’t know how to recognize the signs of bedbugs. People may also confuse evidence of other insects with that of bed bugs and administer the incorrect treatment. The more you know about bed bugs, the better you can prevent, detect and effectively treat infestations before they get out of hand. Here are a few telltale signs that you are living with bed bugs: You get bitten It first occurs to most people that they may be living with bed bugs when they begin waking up with mysterious bites to the skin. Bed bugs feed on our blood to grow and reproduce. Though they are often lumped in with parasites like mites or lice, bed bugs are not parasites because they do not actually live on us. Rather, they only come to us when they are feeding, which makes them predators. Bed bugs do not technically bite – they pierce the skin with a beak to suck the blood. These “bites” can cause allergic skin reactions in certain people, whose skin reacts with various levels of severity. Though there are no known cases of diseases being transmitted to humans, scratching the irritated skin can cause secondary bacterial infections. Bed bugs do not only bite in the widely known “three in a row” pattern – sometimes the bites appear in clusters. Because bites from different insects may look similar, it is important not to draw a final conclusion as to whether you have bed bugs based on the pattern of bites with no other evidence. You see them Contrary to popular myth, an effective bed bug inspection can be done with the naked eye. If you use a magnifying glass and flashlight for your inspections you may be able to spot them more easily (a flashlight phone app works great for this). Mature bed bugs are visible. An adult bed bug is about ¼ inch long, about the size of a lentil, so most people with good eyesight can see them. A quick Internet search can reveal photos of the nighttime predators as well as checklists of their common household hiding places. It is important to know where to look. Start with bed linens and then check carefully in the creases and cracks of the bed area. Look at the headboard and around the bedframe. Expand your search to the flooring around the bed, and to furniture around the room. Check all sofas, seating and drapes around the house. Bed bugs have also been known to colonize on walls near electrical outlets. Check in and around any storage areas in the home, particularly any clutter in the bedroom. If you have bed bugs, you will either spot the bugs themselves or their “evidence”. After bed bugs feed they defecate, leaving fecal brown spots on sheets or other surfaces. It is also possible to spot dead bugs and/or their shed skins in or near hiding places. You detect an odor One other way to detect bed bugs is if you notice a sweet musty odor that is often reported with highly populated infestations where bed bug numbers are high. Though not very common in a single-family dwelling, an infestation that has been allowed to proliferate for a long time may reach the point of producing this odor. What do to if you find bed bugs in your home If you do find bed bugs, immediately contact a pest control company licensed by the state of New York. Not all pest control companies are trained in bed bug inspection and treatment. Before you schedule a visit, confirm that the company you select does have experience with bed bugs. A solid and reliable exterminator will recommend a course for treatment that will involve more than one visit to the home. The most effective eradication method known today is extreme heat. A good pest control service will likely do a bed bug heat treatment to heat your living space and belongings. This will be used in conjunction with other organic bed bug treatments and possibly powders or pesticides, Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation
