FAQs regarding bed bugs in your community

If you reside in Omaha, Council Bluffs, or a surrounding area that experiences an infestation of bed bugs, there are important facts you should know to remain safe and stay protected. Here is a list of crucial FAQs on bed bugs that will guide you and suggest appropriate actions to take:

If you see any of the below tell-tale signs of bed bugs in your home be sure to contact us immediately regarding our bed bug removal services.  Left unchecked, bed bugs reach maturity in about 35 days and can live up to an entire year with an adequate food supply. Without professional intervention, stopping bed bugs in their tracks can be very difficult.

Signs That You Might Have Bed Bugs In My Home:

    • Look for bed bug skins, which are the exoskeletons (or shells) they shed as they grow.
    • Watch for fecal stains made by bed bugs on your mattress pad and/or bedding.
    • Be on the lookout for blood stains on your sheets or bedclothes caused by the biting insects.
    • Examine your family for signs of bites which might include raised, red welts; burning and itching sores; or a rash in one specific body area (like the chest or abdomen). Bed bugs feast in a relatively straight path, so the bites are often arranged in a straight line and comprised of multiple bites.

Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown creatures that feed on humans and they like to stay close to the buffet. Anywhere people sit, lay or congregate for short periods of time are potential locations for these very annoying creatures to set up residence.

In the bedroom, mattresses, box springs and headboards and ideal places for bed bugs to make their nest. Couches, chairs, soft furniture or even fixtures can be accommodating for these little bugs. They can hitch a ride on just about anything you might come into contact with including a taxi or car ride, a movie theatre seat or from hotels and airline seats when you travel.

As easy as they are to pick up, they’re extremely difficult to get rid of. Because bed bugs are fond of taking long naps after a meal of your blood, they retreat back to their nests inside your bed or other soft surfaces to hang out until it is time to eat again. This makes the job of finding them and eliminating them quite tricky.

Sadly, there is no sure fire way to keep bed bugs from following you home and setting up housekeeping. You can be extra diligent while traveling, paying close attention to travel reviews, inspecting hotel rooms for any signs of infestation and keeping your suitcases off the floor. Hanging clothing is preferable to storing them in drawers when you are traveling.
Bed bugs are small, wingless insects that feed on human blood. They’re usually brown or reddish-brown and have an oval-shaped body. They’re most active at night and can be found in cracks and crevices in your home, including your mattress, box springs, and bedding.
While bed bugs are not known to transmit diseases to humans, their bites can cause severe itching and discomfort – not to mention displeasing visual leftovers where they enjoy your blood. If exposed to bed bugs for a prolonged amount of time, a severe infestation can happen and could lead to experiencing mental and emotional distress.

Bed bug bites usually appear as small, red, and itchy bumps or welts on the skin. If a bed bug has bitten you, you might also experience swelling within the bite area and, in some cases, blisters.

The appearance of a bed bug bite or bites will often be arranged in a line or a cluster, as multiple bed bugs may have fed on the same area.

It is important to note that not everyone may experience a reaction from bed bug bites; some individuals may not have any visible reaction at all.

When it comes to bed bugs, identifying the hiding spots is crucial in controlling their spread. Bed bugs are excellent at staying hidden and can survive without feeding for long periods.

Bed bugs spots include:

  • Mattresses and box springs
  • Headboards and bed frames
  • Cracks and crevices in walls and furniture
  • Electrical outlets and appliances
  • Curtains and carpets
  • Clothing that has not been cleaned in hot water

Our professional exterminators believe knowing where bed bugs hide can help you effectively target your containment and eradication efforts. Stay vigilant and keep a close eye out for these pests.

Bed bugs can live for several months to a year, depending on environmental factors such as temperature and humidity.

Bed bugs can spread through various means, such as clothing, luggage, furniture, schools, and public transportation. They can also quickly move from one room to another through electrical sockets, pipes, and wiring.

They can quickly infest homes, hotels, schools if there is nap time, and other properties, making them difficult to control and eradicate.

Preventing the spread of bed bugs requires early detection, regular cleaning, and eliminating possible entry points.

Proper hygiene is vital to help reduce and prevent the spreading of bed bugs. A regular inspection from a professional local exterminator could help prevent bed bug infestations from taking root if an unwanted visitor hitches a ride during your everyday activities.

Bed bugs can enter your home through various means, including used furniture, luggage, or clothing. They can also come in through cracks in walls or floors.
To prevent bed bugs from infesting your home, avoid bringing in used furniture or clothes without thoroughly inspecting them first. Also, use protective covers on your mattress and box springs, and regularly visually check and vacuum your home.
If you suspect a bed bug infestation, acting quickly is essential. Remove clutter from your home, vacuum all areas, and wash your bedding in hot water. You may also need to use insecticides or hire a professional exterminator.
