Examining Your Home: Where To Look For Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are about 1/4 of an inch long, flat, broad, and oval and have a mahogany color before they feed. After feeding, they become more reddish-brown, swollen, and elongated. Using a flashlight, you can carefully inspect the following areas:

  • In mattress seams or around mattress buttons
  • Inside cracks in the bed frame, headboard, or baseboard
  • Hiding among clutter under the bed
  • Behind loose wallpaper or picture frames on the wall
  • Inside electrical switch plates

Now that you know how to check for bed bugs, you can catch an infestation in its earliest stages. If you need assistance inspecting your home for these pests, the pros at Urbanex are here to help.

Bed Bugs And Sleepless Nights: How They Affect Your Well-Being

Bed bug infestations are frustrating and annoying, but these insects can cause more significant problems than being a nuisance. It is hard to sleep knowing you share your bed with insects that feed on your blood. The longer these pests are inside the house, the more likely you are to experience high levels of anxiety and insomnia.

Bed bugs don't spread diseases but can cause some physical problems. Bed bug bites can be very itchy, and excessive scratching can lead to secondary infection. Occasionally, people can have an allergic reaction to the bites, resulting in severe swelling, enlarged bite marks, and, rarely, anaphylaxis.

Bed bugs are prolific breeders, and infestations can quickly become severe without treatment. Contact us today at Urbanex to learn more about our bed bug treatments or to schedule your free inspection.
