If you've been crawling out of bed covered in itchy, unexplained bites, your home could be hiding a serious bed bug infestation. Contrary to popular belief, bed bugs don't just hang out in “dirty” homes. If you visit an infested hotel and carry a few bed bugs home with you, for instance, it won't take long before these tiny creatures have multiplied by the dozens.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Bed bugs are quite small – they're about the same size and shape as an apple seed. Unfed adult bed bugs are brownish in color. When they've had a meal, they turn reddish-brown and can grow to about six times their usual size.
Bed bug eggs are white and approximately the size of a pinhead. These insects lay their eggs in clusters and attach them to small, tight spaces.
These small insects crawl across your box springs, mattress, and other areas of your home, and cannot fly or jump.
How to Recognize a Bed Bug Infestation
Bed bugs rarely reveal their presence during the day, so it can be tough to tell if you're dealing with an infestation at first. The best way to recognize an infestation is to check your body for telltale bites in the morning. Bed bug bites are red, itchy, and similar in appearance to mosquito bites and will typically appear in a straight or diagonal line.
Check your bed thoroughly for the presence of dead bed bugs, shed skin, and eggs. Look for bed bug excrement on the mattress, sheets, and bed springs. Bed bugs normally hide near their food source, but as the infestation grows, you can also find them in:
- Carpets and curtains
- Cracks in the floor and walls
- Books, posters, and stacks of paper
- Suitcases, backpacks, and clothing
- Windows and door frames
- Couch and chair cushions
- Bedroom furniture
- Electrical outlets
- Clocks, radios, telephones, and appliances
- Behind baseboard heaters
If you spot even a single bed bug, there's likely more where it came from. Contact our exterminators for bed bug treatment in Birmingham, AL right away.
Don't Waste Time on Bed Bug Treatments That Don't Work
If you've spotted bed bugs, your first instinct may be to reach for a bottle of store-bought pesticide. This may kill off a few bed bugs temporarily, but if you miss any, they'll breed and multiply again in no time. Plus, bed bugs can develop a resistance to commonly used bed bug treatment pesticides, which means these chemicals might stop working over time. On top of that, pesticides can be dangerous to use if you've got small children or pets.
You might try to kill bed bugs by throwing bedding and clothing into a hot clothes dryer. Again, while this may kill a few bed bugs, it won't matter unless you manage to get rid of all of them. Before long, you'll find your belongings infested all over again.
Attempting a bed bug treatment by yourself is a frustrating experience. That's why you need the help of a professional that knows how to do bed bug removal right.
