How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs In Your Phoenix Home, Fast!

November 15, 2021

Bed bugs can be easy to miss because they are quite small at only the size of an apple seed when fully grown. Because of this, Phoenix homeowners with bed bugs often mistake these bloodsucking pests for other species such as ticks and fleas.

However, there are some characteristics you can look out for to tell bed bugs apart from other invading pests. For one thing, bed bugs are usually found together in groups, and they are reddish-brown in color. They have oval-shaped bodies, and they mainly look quite flat. However, they will be engorged and bloated if they’ve recently eaten.

Along with how the bed bugs themselves look, you can also watch out for some signs of bed bug activity throughout the home, including:

  • Noticing that bed sheets and other bedding have bloodstains on them
  • Finding discarded egg casings that can be anywhere from cream-colored to dark brown
  • Seeing discarded skins of bed bugs around the house
  • Discovering brown stains around bedding, furniture, or even walls
  • Smelling a strange, musty odor that wasn’t there before

Often it is these other signs of bed bugs that alert homeowners to a bed bug infestation.

Why Are Bed Bugs Difficult To Prevent

Most people know that bed bugs are invasive and difficult to remove, but they are also extremely challenging to keep out. This all has to do with how infestations begin. Bed bugs are mainly brought inside homes when they are picked up while traveling or even running errands. Bed bugs can be picked up almost anywhere, including businesses and other people’s homes.

And, while certain places such as laundromats, hotels, and buses are more likely to have bed bugs, it isn’t easy to prevent them completely because they are so widespread.

The other way bed bug infestations start is if secondhand items with bed bugs are brought into a home. In these cases, it can be a bit easier to avoid the problem. It’s a good idea to always inspect any secondhand items, including all kinds of furniture and appliances, for signs of bed bug infestations before bringing them inside.

Why Professional Bed Bug Control Is More Effective

While it can be tempting to attempt to remove bed bugs on your own, they are a troublesome pest to remove. They can spread throughout a home and live in tiny cracks in walls. In order to remove them completely, you’ll need to eradicate every bed bug and its eggs.

Because of this, professional pest control is much more effective. The experts at Complete Pest Management have specialized training and tools to eradicate these bugs. We apply initial treatments and then offer follow-up services that ensure no bed bugs slip through the cracks.
