Bed Bug 101: Know everything about the critters sleeping with you in bed.

The Basics

Often mistaken for fleas or small cockroaches, these pests are brown, small, and oval-shaped. They grow to about the size of a small seed and possess naturally flat bodies that swell to a bulb shape when full.

Bed bugs get their name from the bed – usually found in or around beds, bed bugs strategically place themselves in the easiest areas where they can feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals while we rest or sleep.

Though they have no wings, bed bugs are surprisingly quick and pesky critters, with the ability to walk and crawl over all types of surfaces. But their primary means of getting around is hitchhiking – by clinging onto unsuspecting humans and human items and settling in wherever they go. A single bed bug can lay over five hundred eggs in its lifetime. Their eggs can be easily confused with a speck of dust.

How Bed Bugs Feed

Bed bug pests are attracted to the biological signatures that humans and other animals naturally give off, particularly while we are asleep.

These pests can sense the carbon dioxide from our breath as well as our body heat, and the longer we stay at rest in a single location, the more drawn they become to that place. This is why beds and couches are biggest hot spots for bed bug infestations.

Bed bugs generally only feed at night while its hosts are asleep. The bite causes little to no pain, and it can take 5-10 minutes of sucking for the bed bug to be satisfied. Afterwards, the bed bug returns to its hiding spot – typically deep inside your mattress, pillows, or bed frame – and stays hidden for weeks at a time before coming out again for its next meal.

Why Bed Bugs are So Hard to Spot

Small, sneaky, and remarkably hardy. Bed bugs are frustratingly perfect for seemingly overnight infestations. Not only are they incredibly small, their eggs are also the size of specks of dust. When they are flat, their bodies are about as wide as a credit card, meaning they can squeeze into the tightest spots.

Common areas include headboards, bedframes, box springs, and mattresses, but they can also be found in stuffed toys, bedside tables and lamps, curtains, and other permanent items around your bed.

Bed bug pests also have a habit of only coming out at night, meaning unless you are looking for them, you will rarely ever spot them. If bed bugs are allowed to spread, they will move to other parts of the bedroom and eventually the rest of the house. If you notice a bed bug anywhere other than your bedroom, chances are you’ve got a serious problem on your hands.

Bed Bugs Are Not Your Enemy; Negligence Is

In most cases, homeowners are reluctant to admit that they have a bed bug problem. It might start with a bit of itching when you wake up in the morning, and the small voice in the back of your mind wondering what might have caused it. We might think it’s a normal itch, or prefer to think of it as a one-off bite from another kind of passing insect.

For one reason or another, we don’t like admitting that we have a bed bug problem. Maybe we think of it as a sign of poor home hygiene or a filthy home, or maybe we don’t want to deal with the reality of an actual infestation.

But bed bug infestations do not necessarily mean you have a dirty home. In almost all cases of NJ home infestations, the initial bed bugs were brought in from the outside. They cling onto bags, clothes, hair, and skin, picked up from hotels, college dorms, and certain public areas. All it takes is two to three bed bugs coming in to turn a home into a bed bug haven, if left unchecked.

If you start seeing signs of a possible bed bug, don’t just let it pass. It takes just 10 days for a bed bug egg to hatch, and seven weeks for it to grow into an adult that can reproduce. Waiting for more serious signs before doing anything about it can result in your home experiencing a complete infestation in no time.

Bed bug infestations are as much about negligence as they are about bed bug ingenuity. Control bed bug problems before they get out of hand by contacting the right exterminator business before it’s too late.

Bed Bug Extermination FAQ

How much does it cost to get rid of bed bugs?

The cost of your treatment will depend on a number of factors, including the number of rooms that require treatment, the overall level of infestation, and the type of bed bug removal treatment selected. For a better idea of what you might spend, call us or contact us on our website today.

Are landlords responsible for bed bugs in NJ?

Yes. According to New Jersey law, landlords in NJ are required to shoulder the financial cost of NJ bed bug extermination businesses and bed bug exterminators in a rented home.

How many treatments will I need for a full bed bug infestation?

The number of treatments required depends on the treatment solution chosen, but typically you should be fine with 2 treatments, or up to 3 depending on conditions. Our NJ company will assist in determining the best exterminator schedule for your situation.

Bed bug removal tips – Can I deal with bed bugs on my own?

Many NJ homeowners assume they can handle a bed bug situation on their own, but it can be much more difficult to get rid of bed bugs with DIY techniques than other pests. Homeowners can even make the problem worse. Using the wrong product or treating the wrong areas will move bed bugs into areas they normally don't inhabit. This will make it more difficult for a professional exterminator and increase the cost of treatment.

For safest and quickest results, it’s ideal to contact professional NJ exterminators to do the job.
