Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?

Do you need to get rid of bed bugs? There are Bed Bugs just about everywhere across the globe, including throughout America. In fact, it doesn’t really matter where you travel in the good ol US of A – Arizona, New York, California, Florida, Texas, or ??? - you can easily bring Bed Bugs back home or to your work place with you. Whether you're staying in a high end 5-Star Resort or your grandma's house, bed bugs could be lurking just out of site. Homeless shelters, hospitals, restaurants, airports and just about anywhere else people frequent are possible points of contact. They are famous for hitching a ride in your clothing, purse, hair or luggage and travel well.

So, how do you know if there are Bed Bugs in any given location? It's important - especially when traveling - to take the time to do a thorough inspection of any place you intend to stay BEFORE settling in. In fact, we recommend finishing your inspection before bringing your luggage into the space so they don't climb in if they are there. Look closely at any mattress/box spring set that is present. Dig down into the stitching, stretching and opening it up for a close inspection. Check between the mattress and box spring, too. Bed bugs will hide in any tight, dark, safe place that's close to where people sleep, so check any headboards, baseboards, dresser drawers, picture frames, etc. that are close by. Anything within 15 feet of the bed is fair game as far as the Bed Bugs are concerned. You’ll be looking for the Bed Bugs, of course, but also their feces, eggs and castings. Look closely at the bedding for dark spotting or blood, which could indicate that bed bugs have been feeding on whoever was there before you. If you find signs that there may be or may have been bed bugs there, check out and sleep somewhere else. It's really that simple, because taking bed bugs home with you is extremely frustrating and can be expensive.

Another way folks can bring bed bugs home with them is by simply picking them up at a friend's or relative's home when visiting them. Or they can bring them with them when visiting you. It's more common than you may think. We knew of a family in the Phoenix, Arizona area who had a recurring bed bug problem in one of their daughter's room. Every couple of months they would have to have an exterminator out to treat the one bedroom. They finally figured out that she was picking them up at a friends home when visiting there. We think of hotels and motels as possible sources of bud bug problems, but it can be closer to home than you think. Regardless of where you got them you definitely need to get rid of bed bugs.

How To Prevent Bed Bugs

If you have any reservations at all as far as where you've been, who you've been around, or who comes to your home or business, there are some very good preventative measures you may want to think about. We highly recommend bed bug mattress covers - really good, professional grade mattress protectors - as your first line of long term defense. Not only do really high quality bed bug mattress covers keep them from getting into (or out of!) your mattress, but they eliminate the need to chemically treat your bed, which is a big deal as far as we're concerned. Quality, long lasting mattress protectors will not only give you peace of mind but will also protect your investment for years to come. We've seen far too many folks have to throw away their beds because of severe bed bug infestations, and that's just too expensive in our book. These covers are also available for pillows and box springs, which is awesome. NOTE: we don't recommend the cheaper, over the counter covers as they don't always work as well and definitely don't last very long. A good mattress cover will actually work to help prevent bed bugs and will last for years.

Bed Bug traps, also known as detection or monitoring kits, are also a great tool to help you stay on top of any potential bed bug problem. Simply place them under your bed and in other possible problem areas and get a heads up should there be bed bugs in that area. Besides under beds, you may also want to use them under furniture, in automobiles or RV's and any place you may be storing stuff for friends or family. Since bed bugs don't usually go away on their own, we highly recommend these tools for bed bug prevention and monitoring.

Info About Bed Bug Bites

So, how do you know if you have Bed Bug Bites? There are some bed bug signs & symptoms that will help you identify Bed Bug Bites:
  • Red, itchy, puffy, swollen spots on your body. Bed Bugs often work - and leave bite marks - in a straight line, cluster or zigzag pattern. Bed bug bites usually do not hurt like an ant bite or spider bite would. But if you're wondering: do bed bugs bites itch? - the answer is almost always yes.
  • Bed Bug bites usually appear where your skin was exposed during the night as you slept, like on your arms, shoulders and neck. Bed Bugs don't usually feed inside of your clothing or under your bedding as they want to be ready for a quick run to safety. However, nothing's written in stone and bites can pop up anywhere on your body.
  • Bed Bugs often leave spots of blood or dark spots on the bedding.
  • Like most critters, they will leave feces and bed bug eggs just about anywhere they've been. Bed Bugs also leave shed skin, known as castings, behind as well. The more of this evidence you find, the more activity there has been in that location.
  • Most insects utilize pheromones to communicate amongst themselves. With Bed Bugs, this can cause a musty, unpleasant odor after a period of time.
