Bed bugs can be hard to see, let our experts check out your home to see if these invasive pests are there.
Many homeowners are unaware they are dealing with a bed bug infestation until they notice red, itchy, swollen bites on their own bodies. However, these infestations must be dealt with quickly because they can pose potential health risks to you and your family. Bedbugs like to hide in small cracks and crevices close to a human environment. They can be found behind baseboards, wallpaper, upholstery, and furniture crevices.
If you are waking up with itchy, red bumps on your skin that were not there when you went to bed, that could be a sign that you are dealing with bed bugs. Other signs can include bloodstains on your sheets or pillows, dark stains on walls, your mattress. You may also notice small skin shedding between your headboards, the cracks of your mattress, or other bedroom furniture. There also could be a musty odor in the room.
