Bed Bug Control & Extermination
Eliminate Bed Bugs From Your Home
Who let the bugs out, er, we meant to say how did bed bugs get inside your home? No, you did not willingly bring them inside, however, once bed bugs do appear – usually at night with peak activity between midnight and 7 AM – they look for warm bodies to chomp on (they seek out the carbon dioxide of your body.)
Signs of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are bloodsuckers about 1/8″ in length with reddish brown color and flat, oval-shaped bodies.
The bed bug life cycle from nymph to adulthood is 30-60 days; since most bed bug infestations are not identified for weeks, you will likely find several forms of bed bugs. Bed bug eggs are extremely hard to find because female bed bugs usually lay them in cracks, crevices, voids in your walls, and inside or under furniture. A female bed bug can lay 5 eggs per day, up to 500 in its lifetime.
