How do bed bugs spread?
Bed bugs have a few different ways of entering your home. One common way they enter people’s homes is through luggage after returning from a vacation. The bug gets into your bags in your hotel or Airbnb and crawls out once you’re back home. Another way is through outside second-hand furniture that is brought into the home. Any time new furniture enters your home, it is a good idea to have the entire house inspected by our team as the insect is known to spread quickly.
What are the signs of a bed bug infestation?
The first sign you should look for is the physical presence of the bed bugs themselves. A thorough inspection with a flashlight will help to identify specific place of the home in which bed bugs might be calling home. Check all around your bed, including in sheets, headboards, box springs, bedside furniture and surrounding carpet. If bed bugs are present in your bed, you will likely wake up with small bites all over your body. You should also look for small dark spots or blood spots on sheets, or evidence of bed bug eggs.
Where do bed bugs lay eggs?
Female bed bugs like to lay eggs in the cracks and crevices around your bed. One female can lay up to 250 eggs in her lifetime–– each egg will hatch in approximately a week. Offspring bed bugs come out hungry, so it is important for the reproduction cycle that eggs are laid close to the food source. If you see anything in your home or business that looks like bed bug eggs, call our Wilmington pest control team immediately.
