Have a Bed Bug-Free Home Again—For Good!

No one wants to think that they might have tiny, parasitic bugs crawling around their bed at night, but it’s the reality for many. Most people assume that they are safe from a bed bug infestation if they avoid staying in a dirty hotel and keep their room clean. The reality is, however, that bed bug infestations can happen anywhere and to anyone. For Louisiana in particular, the bed bug problem in homes and even reputable hotels continues to increase. With powerful and effective bed bug treatment, Delta Pest Services solves your bed bug problem and prevents them from ever returning.

Common Places for Bed Bugs to Hide

Bed bugs generally enter your home undetected by latching onto fabrics like your clothes or even furniture. From there, they make themselves at home and begin to repopulate quickly. The most common places bed bugs will hide in your bed are within the box spring or mattress, the headboard, or under the bed or sheets. However, bed bugs hide in several other places in your home such as your suitcase, closet, dresser, upholstery, or anywhere that is most convenient to them. When these tiny, flat, tear-drop shaped insects get hungry at night, they can crawl from their hiding spot to the nearest person and feed away. Once they are full, the bed bugs will return to their hiding place and stay there until they’re hungry for their next meal.

How to Prevent Bed Bugs

New Orleans and Southern Louisana have such a high quantity of bed bugs because it’s a highly populated area and receives many visitors a year. The influx of people increases the probability of them spreading, meaning people regularly transport bed bugs in and out of our community unknowingly. There are some precautions you can take, though, to preventing bed bugs from hitching a ride home with you.

Tips for preventing bed bugs are:

  • Avoid bringing used furniture into your home without a thorough inspection for bed bugs. 
  • Install a bed bug cover on all your mattresses to help prevent them from living in your mattress.
  • Reduce clutter and vacuum frequently.
  • If you go to a laundromat, transport your clothing in a sealed bag and inspect it for signs of bed bugs before bringing them into your home.
  • When staying in a hotel or Airbnb, check for signs of bed bugs by inspecting the mattress, carpet, and other furniture.
  • Make sure to use the luggage rack for your suitcase. Bed bugs cannot climb luggage racks that are made of metal, and the rack prevents them from getting into the suitcase. You can also store your luggage in the bathtub if there is no luggage rack available. Setting luggage on beds or even wood furniture will not keep the pests from infesting the suitcase as they have hooks on their feet and can climb those surfaces.

Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation

Waking up to itchy, red bites across your body is generally the clearest sign that you might have a bed bug problem in your home. However, some people may have bite marks appear two or three days after a bed bug feeding while others may not have any markings at all. In other words, don’t wait until you see bites to call an exterminator.

A few signs that you may need bed bug treatment are: 

  • Bloodstains on Pillow or Sheets—The bloodstains are not from the parasites piercing your skin. Because bed bugs feed at night, the bloodstains occur when you unknowingly squish one of the night crawlers either during or after their feedings.
  • Strong, Musty Odor—Like other bug species, bed bugs release pheromones that may smell like a wet blanket. As the number of bed bugs increases, the smell will grow stronger. Try washing your laundry, sheets, and furniture to see if the smell goes away. If the smell returns within a few days, you may have a bed bug infestation.
  • Unexplained Rust-Colored or Black Stains—Unless you accidentally stained your sheets with a red, brown, or blackish marker, the small, splotchy stains that you see could actually be bed bug fecal matter. Because bed bugs spend most of their time in their hiding spots, the bed bug waste could be a sign of where they are hiding during the day.

The longer you wait to treat bed bugs, the more danger you put yourself and others in. Bed bugs multiply quickly—they reproduce almost daily!—and will continue to feed on you nightly. The more bugs you have, the more you will be bitten. In addition to getting bitten more, you also risk spreading bed bugs to your family and friends the longer you wait. Bed bugs can easily travel on your clothes without you even knowing it and jump onto others you come into contact with daily.
