Telltale Signs You Have a Bed Bug Infestation, North Hempstead, New York

If you suspect you have a bed bug infestation, it's in your best interests to address the problem right away, before it spreads. But in order to tackle the issue, you first need to know how to figure out whether you’ve got bed bugs. But how can you tell if you’re not an exterminator? The commercial pest control experts at Inside Out Exterminating, located in New Hyde Park, NY, will explain the telltale signs of a bed bug infestation.

Bed bugs are roughly the width of a credit card and can hide in very small places, so you shouldn’t expect to actually see any. However, you can look for these three indicators:

  • bed bugsBed Bug Eggs: When you are cleaning up your home or changing your bedding, check for tiny, pale yellow eggs or eggshells. Bed bug eggs are about the size of a pinhead, but they’re one of the clearest signs of a problem.
  • Blood Stains: If you notice reddish-brown blood stains on your sheets or pajamas, you may have a bed bug problem. Additionally, when a bed bug bites you, it will leave fecal stains on your bedding that look like the marks left by a felt-tip pen.
  • Bed Bug Shells: As bed bugs move from birth to adulthood, they shed their exoskeletons. These shells can be found near the seams and tags of your mattress, on your box spring, or in cracks in your bed frame. 

If you notice any of these signs of bed bugs or just think you have an issue, the first step is to call the commercial pest control team at Inside Out Exterminating. They offer professional, courteous services to New Hyde Park-area residents and will make sure the infestation is entirely eliminated. To schedule an inspection, call them today at (516) 641-0595 or visit them online for more information about their ant and cockroach control services.
