Bed bugs are something you don’t want to deal with, but at the same time, they’re a very common pest problem. The trick to completely getting rid of bed bugs is to spot the infestation early, before these pests have too much time to multiply. Here are a few signs to call us as soon as possible for bed bug removal services:
- Unusual musty odors—Has your home taken on an unusually musty odor? If you have a bed bug infestation, it might make your house smell like moldy laundry or wet towels.
- Bites—If you wake up in the morning with mysterious red bites all over your body, you could have a bed bug problem and need to call us for bed bug removal. The most common places for bed bugs to bite are the arms, hands, and legs.
- Eggs—You can see bedbug eggs with your naked eye if you look closely enough. Bed bugs typically lay their eggs in fabric and upholstery, so check your bed and your couch for pinhead-sized, pearly white ovals. These eggs will only be loosely stuck to these surfaces.
- Shell casings—Bed bugs will shed their shells at different stages during their molting cycle. These yellowish brown, translucent casings are a reliable indicator that you have a bedbug infestation.
