Frequently asked questions

How do bed bugs get in your bed?

Bed bugs can use numerous different ways to get inside your home, and sooner or later in your bed. They can travel via fabrics, clothing, luggage, bags and so on. Once they find a suitable area, like a bed or other furniture, they settle there and establish populations pretty quickly.

How can I tell if we have bed bugs?

Some of the typical signs to look for if you suspect a bed bug infestation include tiny bloodstains on your linens, dark spots on your mattress and lines from their excrement, and red, itchy bite marks on your shin. Other telltale signs include an unpleasant, musty smell from the pheromones they release and oval brown exoskeletons on your mattress and linens that they’ve shed as they mature.

Are bed bugs hard to get rid of?

While the process requires a lot of commitment and diligence, the great news is that bed bugs are not that hard to get rid of. There are numerous different DIY treatments that you can use. You can also call in a professional exterminator who will be able to get your whole home free of bed bugs by treating every part, crack or crevice of your home for bed bugs using professional products and equipment.

What is the main cause of bed bugs?

While people used to believe that what attracted bed bugs the most was a filthy and dirty home, the truth is that bed bugs do not have any preferences when it comes to the cleanliness of your home. Therefore, any home can get infested by bed bugs. All it takes is for you to travel somewhere where bed bugs have established a population and bring them home via your clothes, suitcase, etc.

Are bed bugs visible to the eye?

While bed bugs range from the size of a sesame seed up to an apple seed, especially after a big meal, they can be hard to find sometimes. The first signs of infestation you’ll probably notice won’t be the actual bed bugs, but the marks they’ll leave on your body, and the spots on your bed and linens. Since they tend to hide in cracks and crevices, the best way to locate them would be to use a flashlight and a magnifying glass while inspecting your furniture and other areas where you suspect bed bug activity.

What kills bed bugs instantly?

One thing that instantly kills bed bugs is high heat (over 50 degrees Celsius). That’s why the most crucial step in killing them is to wash and dry all your worn clothing, linens and covers in the hottest temperature they can withstand. Pack anything else that cannot be washed in big plastic bags and leave them outside your house on a hot sunny day for a few days to kill all the bed bugs that might be inside.
