It’s not always easy to detect bedbugs, but an infestation can affect your comfort and your health. Bedbugs are parasites that are very good at hiding. They only come out for short periods, usually at night, to feed themselves on a meal of blood. Looking to you as their source of food, they will engorge themselves and then go back into hiding. When they feed, they inject a salivary secretion into the wound to prevent coagulation. Bed bug bites can cause rashes, and the sores will itch and may even become swollen. Calling a pest control professional can save you from more than just a few sleepless nights.

Bed bugs can enter your home by being carried on your clothing or in your bags when you stay at hotels and motels. You can also get bed bugs from your workplace, the movies, or traveling on trains, planes or buses. Here are some key signs to look for when determining if you have a problem requiring bedbug removal:

Our intensive bed bug removal process is both thorough and safe.

  • Waste – Bedbugs create a lot of waste that is easier to find than the insects themselves. It can consist of dark spots on your mattress or of shed skins, eggs, dead bed bugs, etc. You may find it in your mattress, in the box springs or on the linen.
  • Bites – When you wake up in the morning you will find little bites, but you won’t know what caused them. People rarely catch bed bugs in the act. They come out at night and only bite for a short period.
  • Hiding Places – They are found in dark places like cracks in walls, electrical outlets, behind wallpaper, around base boards and picture frames, between beds and around the creases of mattresses. They are masters at hiding so you probably won’t see one live, but you will notice their waste or dark spots.
  • Carpet Tape – This is a great way to trap bed bugs. Get some double-sided carpet tape and lay out strips around your bed and on the sides of the mattress. Leave it on for a few days. If you have a problem requiring bed bug removal, it’s likely that at least a few will stick to the tape.

Bedbug Removal and Extermination in New Jersey

Once infested, bedbug removal is a very long and intensive process. Because they are in places that are difficult to treat, not many insecticides can solve the problem. Bed bug removal involves a multi-faceted treatment process that begins with a thorough inspection. Next, all bedding is removed and the area is vacuumed. We then steam the cracks and crevices around your home to destroy the eggs. Finally, we apply pesticides into cracks and crevices and place plastic coverings on box springs and mattresses to contain the bed bugs. The bedbug removal services provided by Humphrey’s require multiple visits and treatments to eliminate the problem.
