“Goodnight. Sleep tight. Don’t let the bed bugs bite.” It’s one of the oldest nursery rhymes in existence, and it refers to one of the most notorious and well-known pest problems in existence as well: bed bugs. Bed bugs are a problem that has been noted throughout our earliest recorded history. In fact, the word bug is derived from the Old English word “bugge”, which meant a “ghost” or “something frightening” that would bite people in the middle of the night. That night-time biter: bed bugs.

What Are Bed bugs?
Bed bugs are a small type of bug that grows to roughly the size of an apple seed as an adult. Bed bugs feed on blood meals, the name given to an insect bite. Both juvenile and adult bed bugs require a blood meal in order to perform critical tasks in their life. For example, juveniles need them to advance into the next stage of life, and females need them in order to lay eggs. Likewise, all bed bugs need blood meals to shed their exoskeleton—a common occurrence as the bug outgrows its current shell.
Some signs you have a bed bug invasion include:
- Discarded bed bug exoskeletons
- Bed bug fecal stains (small reddish-brown spots)
- Bed bug eggs
- Live or dead bed bugs in your mattress, sheets, or carpet
- Extremely itchy sores on bare skin that touches your mattress
- Sharp bite-like pains while laying down in bed
How do bed bugs get into your home? The easiest way is that they hitchhike. The bugs are attracted to the carbon monoxide that mammals exhale when we breathe, but they are almost exclusively drawn to humans. They find their way into homes on clothes, suitcases, shoes, purses, backpacks, and more. Sometimes these bugs come from accidentally brushing an infested outdoor plant, but in most cases, it’s from contact with a different upholstered item that is infected, such as a chair, mattress, or another piece of furniture. Bed bugs can also be found in carpet.

The True Impact of Bed bug Problems
Bed bugs are an extremely difficult problem to solve because they can quickly and easily spread throughout a home. While doing laundry might wash bed bugs out of clothes, they can quickly become reinfected if the other clothes in your drawers or closet have bed bugs in them. Bed bugs can also live in the carpet beneath your feet and are often invisible to the eye beneath bedsheets. All of that leads to non-stop itching, painful bites, and general misery that’s difficult to overcome. In fact, bed bugs cause a high amount of psychological trauma in addition to the physical ramifications.
Getting rid of a bed bug problem requires extensive treatment and cleaning methods, including multiple treatments. However, hesitating will only lead to the problem getting worse. If you suspect you have a bed bug problem, reach out to our professional and courteous staff right away!
