SCHEDULE MY INSPECTION Bedbugs are reddish-brown in color and are flat oval insects. They measure about 3/16 inches long which is about the size of an apple seed. After they have sucked on your blood, they tend to look swollen and red. Bedbugs earned their name from their preferred habitat, your bed. However, they can also be found in your sheets, furniture and base board. They are not strictly nocturnal, but come out most often at night time hours while you are fast asleep. These pests normally climb the walls to the ceiling and drop down to their host as they are attracted to the warmth and presence of carbon dioxide. Bedbugs can live for a little over a year without feeding, but they normally try to feed every five to ten days.

Signs of Infestation:

A bed bug infestation is a very dangerous thing to have in your home. These bugs will suck the blood out of you, potentially causing severe damage to your health. One of the main signs that show these bugs are invading your home is if you wake up in the morning and have itchy red welts all over your body. If you look in your sheets you won't be able to spot any bugs because these pests are the best at hiding. However, if you see tiny red blood spots on your mattress, it is most likely bed bugs that have been crushed. If you have had guests over, or traveled recently and notice you have these itchy red welts, chances are that bed bugs have entered your home.
