How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs

Bed Bug Control

Bed Bug Life Stages

Over the last decade there has been a resurgence of Bed Bugs across the United States including Tucson.  Bed Bugs feed upon people for blood meals, presenting a legitimate health concern for people.  Experts are blaming increased world travel, pesticide resistance, and the poor awareness by the general public regarding Bed Bugs and their habits.

Bed Bug infestations are most common in hotels and multi-unit housing, but can easily spread to homes after travel or visiting friends.  Bed Bugs are highly transient hitching rides on luggage, furniture, and personal belongings.

Bed Bugs have piercing-sucking mouth parts they use to feed on their human hosts.  They prefer to hide during the day deep in cracks and crevices close to where people sleep.  The presence of Bed Bugs can often be detected by their fecal matter, eggs, and skin castes around mattress seams or crack and crevices near the bed.

This mix of Bed Bug debris can often look similar to salt and pepper.  The most common detection is often the occasional blood spotting on sheets or physical bites on skin.  Due to the complex habits and biology of Bed Bugs, treatments need to be tailored to each situation to insure elimination.
