If you have a bed bug infestation, it is best to find it early, and treat it right away before the infestation becomes established or spreads throughout the home. Once you contact a pest control company you may think it is easy to prepare your house/business without hiring a professional. It is not. You can certainly do it, but make sure you follow the instructions given by your pest control company to the letter! Minor infestations can become widespread and make the treatment far costlier if you do the prep work incorrectly, or if you wait too long.

The couch, the seams of the bed, the seams of your pillow, and the carpet are some of the places you will notice bed bugs. If you realize your bedroom has been infested with bed bugs, moving from one room to another room to sleep is not a smart move. Getting freaked out and moving from the master bedroom to another bedroom or to the couch when you realize you have bedbugs is considered one of the easiest ways to spread the infestation.

If you see reddish stains on bed sheets or mattress you have a clear sign that you have live bed bugs. Do not wait contact a pest control company to help you. Do not try to treat the infestation by yourself, you might make the case worse.

Low-level infestations are much more puzzling to find and correctly identify. It’s easy to think a bed bug is some other, more harmless, insect. If you misidentify a bed bug infestation, it gives the bugs more time to spread to other areas of the house or hitchhike a ride to someone else’s house to start a new infestation.

If your house/business is heavily infested, you may find bed bugs in more rooms other than your bedrooms: in the seams of chairs and couches, between cushions, in the folds of curtains, in electrical outlets, and under loose wall paper and wall hangings.

Again, pay attention to the instructions! If any of your belongings were removed prior to treatment and then brought back afterward, bed bugs could be re-introduced. In order to avoid this, do not move items out of the home or area to be treated without first consulting with your pest control company.
