Bed bugs are tiny blood-sucking insects that feed on humans and other warm-blooded animals. As their name implies, they like to hide in small crevices close to where people sleep like mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and even couches. They do not fly, but they can move very quickly over floors, walls and ceilings.
Bed bugs are known to be hitchhikers–they can travel significant distances by hiding in luggage, or even used furniture. Despite what many believe, anyone can experience a bed bug infestation if proper preventative measures are not taken. A bed bug problem can feel particularly invasive, and we are here to help remove the pests from your home.
We can identify bed bug problems.
Our technicians are trained to identify bed bugs. They are usually brown, reddish-brown or dark yellow in color and oval in shape with a flat body. Since they are so small and usually only come out at night, it is best to reach out to a pest control professional if you suspect you may have a bed bug problem. Some of the most common signs of bed bugs are: blood stains on sheets or couches, bed bug droppings, and of course, seeing an actual bed bug. These pests can be challenging to identify, but Superior Exterminating technicians are up to the task.
