Symptoms of Bed Bug Bites

Bedbugs are often very difficult to detect because they are mostly nocturnal and can feed without being noticed. Often, bedbugs can cause skin irritation and rashes for people that are sensitive to them and that is usually how they are detected. If someone is displaying bed bug symptoms, they are diagnosed once the symptoms have been confirmed and bedbugs have been found in the home. What do bed bugs look like? They are usually small and oval shaped, and at maturity they are usually the size of an appleseed. Adolescent bedbugs are called nymphs and are very hard to detect. They will shed their skin up to 5 times before reaching maturity. An adult bedbug can create 3 or more generations a year!

Detecting a Bed Bug Infestation in Des Moines, Ankeny and Ames

Bed Bugs can come into the home numerous ways. They often spread through clothing and luggage traveling from other infested locations. Infested items such as used furniture can also carry the unwelcome pests into the home. Often, bedbugs will travel through air ducts and cracks in the walls in infested apartment buildings and hotels. It is important to know that the cleanliness of a location does not determine whether it is more susceptible to a bedbug infestation. Immaculate homes and hotel rooms are just as liable to bedbugs as filthy ones! Due to their ability to spread, it is important to contact local residential pest control for an inspection.
