bed bug fecal 2Bed bugs can survive for a year, laying hundreds of eggs during their lifespan. As the population grows, the bugs may spread to other areas of the home, including carpets, tables, dressers and even picture frames. Although you may not be able to see the bugs themselves, you may notice telltale signs, such as pepper-like fecal particles and bloodstains on your mattress. Bed bugs can bite any part of exposed skin; the bites look like raised welts or an itchy red rash.
 
To treat a bed bug infestation, it's essential to find and eliminate every last bug - leaving even one or two live bed bugs behind will only start the problem all over again. If you suspect you have bed bugs, your best solution is hiring a pest control professional.

Q. How can I tell if there are bed bugs in my home?

A. Bed bugs are tiny and come out mainly late at night, so they can be hard to detect. However, there are certain telltale signs of an infestation. For instance, you can spot the reddish-brown insects, their tiny white eggs and gray shells (exoskeletons) on your mattress, mattress seams and the crevices of your bed or dresser. You may notice small dark sand-like spots on your mattress - the bed bugs' fecal dropppings - or blood smears from crushed droppings or bugs.

The other clear sign of a bed bug infestation is bites on the arms, legs, back, face and/or neck. They may look like a rash or like itchy, raised red welts.  If you wake up with red marks that were not there the night before, bed bugs are likely the culprit.

Q. I keep my house clean - how could I possibly have bed bugs?

A. Bed bugs can occur even in the most spotless of homes. They often make their way into a dwelling from another area by crawling onto clothing, furniture, luggage or backpacks. Travelers may bring home bed bugs from their hotel room, and houseguests may bring bed bugs to their host's home without realizing it.

In New York City, bed bugs have been detected in movie theaters, hospital wards, schools, taxis and luxury apartments. 

Q. Can I get sick from bed bugs?

A. Unlike flies and roaches, bed bugs do not appear to spread diseases. However, they may trigger allergic symptoms, and the bites can be itchy and uncomfortable. Having bed bugs in your home can also rob you of your peace of mind.

Q. Can I get rid of bed bugs myself?

A. If you suspect a bed bug infestation, your best bet is to contact a professional pest control service such as Magic Touch Exterminating. Trying to treat the problem yourself can be time-consuming and ineffective. Conventional bug sprays are largely useless against bed bugs and can be toxic to children and pets. Removing your bedding and furniture may not be enough; bugs may still remain in the home and nest on new furniture.

Bed bugs are one of the fastest-growing pest problems in the U.S. today. These small hard-shelled bugs cluster in groups in areas where people sit or lie down (beds, chairs, sofas), coming out at night to feed on human and animal blood. Bed bugs can also be carried into the home through your clothing, luggage or backpack; it's very common for travelers to pick up the bugs from a hotel.
