You’ve heard the old saying, “goodnight, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite,” but unless you’ve actually lived with these critters you don’t know how apropos that wish is! Recently, bed bugs have made news in all parts of the world, taunting travelers by stowing away in their luggage and clothing. If you’ve already heard horror stories from your friends or family, you know that bed bug infestations are no joking matter. So if you have bed bugs in Las Vegas, you need a bed bug exterminator service that can help you – STAT!
Bed bugs are flat, mahogany colored insects that are about the size of an apple seed. These pests get their red coloring from their diet, which is exclusive to blood. If you have a bed bugs infestation, these critters are likely hiding in areas like your bed sheets, mattress seams, drapes or curtains, and behind baseboards or electrical outlets. Bed bugs are mobile and can move from place to place by crawling into luggage or other personal belongings.
Once you’ve got a bed bug, you’re likely to get a whole lot more. Female bugs lay up to five eggs per day, and bed bugs can live for nearly a year with adequate food. Don’t wait! Call a bed bug exterminator immediately!
Signs You May Have a Bed Bug Infestation
While bed bugs can be sneaky, it’s usually pretty simple to identify their presence. Obviously, seeing the bugs is a good sign that you have a problem. But since bed bugs are usually active at night, you may not see them during the brighter daytime hours. Look for small brown and black stains on mattresses and sheets, which could be the mark of bed bug defecation. You may also see reddish brown particles left by the juvenile bed bugs as they grow and shed their skin. Bites on the skin are also a sign of a problem. Typical bed bug bites appear in a straight line on the legs and ankles, and can be swollen or inflamed.
