While bed bugs aren’t known to spread disease, they are a major annoyance and others may suffer from red, itchy bumps where they bite. If you’re suffering from bites or find small, rust-colored spots in your bed, you most likely have bed bugs as those spots are bed bug droppings. Our professionally trained bed bug exterminators will inspect your home using suitable equipment and discover the location and level of infestation in your home with precision. From there, we build you an effective and consistent bed bug treatment plan.
As bed bugs can live up to one year without feeding, we continue to monitor your home after treatment to ensure complete elimination for your peace of mind. When you have Delta Pest Services on your side, you don’t have to worry about bed bugs resurfacing in your home.
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.
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:
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.

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.
