While not always easy to detect, once you have a bed bug infestation, they are tough to get rid of on your own. Bed bugs are small, brownish, oval shaped bugs that are able to fit in an area the width of a credit card edge. They travel quickly on floors, walls, and furniture and lay 100’s of eggs at a time. If you have experienced waking up to spots of itchiness or even blood stains on your sheets or clothing, you may have a bed bug issue. An infestation is not a sign of cleanliness or the opposite, as they thrive on blood alone. Proper control and care is imperative when dealing with bed bug so hiring a professional is best.
