Who Invited the Bed Bugs? This is One Sleepover You’d Rather Not Host

Just the thought of bed bugs can make most people itch. While many feel their cleanliness standards would never allow for bed bugs to enter their homes, the facts are that keeping a clean and tidy home doesn’t prevent these annoying and unpleasant pests from entering your home.

Bed bugs are essentially parasites and as such, they get around by looking for an opportunity to hop on and ride along with an unsuspecting host. They are small, oval, brown-colored insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. Adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed and have characteristically flat bodies. After a good meal, their bodies puff up and are reddish in color. For Omaha bed bug extermination, call Genie Pest Control at (402) 346-7810.

It is true they are called bed bugs, but beds aren’t their only hiding place.

They can be found in the fabric of couches or chairs, between the cushions of upholstered furniture, inside of drawers or cabinets, and even behind the plates covering your electrical outlets.

Bed bugs can also be carried along inside of luggage, furniture, pillows, jackets, and really any other object that comes near or in contact with them. Once they are in, bed bugs can reproduce and spread very rapidly; they don’t care if your home is pristinely clean and it won’t prevent them from spreading from room to room.

Bed bugs do not fly, but that doesn’t keep them from moving along floors, ceilings, and walls. With the ability to lay hundreds of eggs up to three times per year, it doesn’t take long for a full-blown infestation to happen. Bed bug removal efforts must happen quickly before the problem goes from bad to a very itchy and worse.

So how do you know if you have bed bugs in your Omaha home?

For many, the first sign is red, itchy bites that appear on their bodies after going to bed. Other tell-tale signs include blood stains on sheets or pillowcases; dark or rust-colored spots (bed bug excrement) on sheets, mattress pads, mattresses or even walls; evidence of shed skins or eggshells in areas where bed bugs might hide; and a musty odor that is emitted from the insects’ scent glands.

Bed bug removal takes patience and know-how. For most homeowners, this isn’t a do-it-yourself proposition. You can start by removing bedding and any fabric in or around the room (dust ruffles, window coverings, fabric headboards, etc.). Vacuuming is one of the best ways to remove Omaha bed bugs, along with washing sheets, towels, and affected clothing in hot water.

A bed bug infestation isn’t something you want to try to solve alone.

A bed bug problem really is one situation where it is best to call a qualified bed bug exterminator. Genie Pest Control will leave no stone unturned and can help eliminate bed bugs in your Omaha home effectively and quickly. If you even suspect a bed bug problem, call Genie Pest Control at (402) 436-7810 right away.
