The Traveling Bug

Bed bugs are hitchhikers, meaning that they can hitch a ride on a bag of luggage or on your shirt after you have visited an infested location. Once they find a new home, they start making a new family, causing headaches and discomfort once you are aware of their existence. They are small in size, which makes them difficult to see, and they are difficult to find because they are not active during the day. They can hide in mattresses, bed frames, furniture, carpets, baseboards, and bedding. You don’t, however, have to locate an actual bed bug to identify an infestation. The brown, black, or rust-colored excrement they leave behind on walls and linens, as well as the bloodstains from them being crushed can be easy to see. If you see these signs, call your trusty bed bug exterminators at Noble Way Pest Control, proudly serving Sacramento. 

How Do You Get Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs can get into your home from being transported from other infested places. They can come in on used furniture, ride in your luggage, in your purse, on backpacks, or on other items that are placed on upholstered surfaces. One of the most troubling aspects about bed bugs is that they can travel between rooms in hotels, multi-unit buildings, and apartment complexes. If your apartment neighbor has bed bugs, then keep an eye out for any signs of bed bugs in your home. You can avoid bringing bed bugs into your home by putting your luggage on a suitcase stand when in hotels, and by closely examining any new furniture you are bringing into your home. 

How Can You Control The Problem?

Again, once you have identified some of the signs of a bed bug infestation, like bloodstains, brown or rust-colored excrement, or their shed skin, you can start integrating pest management. Move your bed away from the wall and from other furniture. Vacuum your carpet and sweep your floors every day. Wash your blankets, bed skirts, and sheets, allowing them to dry in a hot dryer for at least 30 minutes. Seal cracks, crevices, and any openings where pipes or wires come into your home.
