How Did I Get Bed Bugs in My Couch?

Surprise fact: bed bugs aren’t relegated to living in just the bed! You can find them in a variety of soft spaces, including chairs and couches. If you’re wondering how they got there, these pesky critters can find their way into your home in a variety of ways. The first thing you should do is contact your local pest control heroes at Clegg’s to send those bed bugs packing. Our team is here to help you take back your space!


If you’d like to schedule an appointment to meet with a member of our bed bug control team or schedule your free inspection, you can call us at (888) MRCLEGG or contact us below. We’ve been serving North Carolina since 1964 and are well-versed in the safest and most effective pest control treatment options.

 

How Did Bed Bugs Get in My Sofa?

 

Bed bugs travel in many ways, including in luggage, furniture, boxes, backpacks, and clothing. While they probably won’t hitch a ride on the outfit you’re wearing, they are known to hide out in piles of clothes when you’re moving, which is why they can also be found in boxes and luggage.
Bed bugs will come out to play when the day ends because they are nocturnal. If you spend your evenings relaxing on the couch or like to enjoy your morning cup of coffee on the sofa, bed bugs can easily transfer from your bed to the couch. Plus since bed bugs can come back or be transferred if they are infesting something mobile like a backpack or purse, it is possible to accidentally move them to your sofa.


How Do I Treat My Couch for Bed Bugs?


If you think you may have bed bugs in your couch, do a check around the cushions. Lift each section and inspect the corners for signs of these small critters. If bed bugs are present, you’ll see thin black streaks, molted skins, small blood stains, or the flat, oval bugs themselves.
Once you are sure you have a bed bug problem (or even if you’re not sure but want an expert’s help), call us to schedule a free inspection. While you could try to treat them yourself, you may find that a DIY approach leads to spending a lot of money without completely eliminating the problem. Plus, bed bugs can sometimes be difficult to identify for those without professional pest control experience. That’s where our team can help!


Why Should I Call Clegg’s Pest Control?


If you have bed bugs, there’s no better team than the professionals at Clegg’s. We use two highly trained bed bug detection dogs, Smoke and Rambo, to identify every bed bug infested location, which means we take care of the whole problem the first time. Knowing where to treat bed bugs can be the hardest part; Smoke and Rambo give us a leg up on those pests!
We also understand how to treat the varying stages of bed bugs, so whether you have full-grown adults, nymphs, or eggs, our team can create a custom treatment plan that will kick those bed bugs to the curb.
