When It’s Time to Call Pest Masters Inc. Novi About Bedbugs

If you find just one bedbug, consider your home infested. All it takes is for one pregnant female bedbug to cause a massive infestation. Each female lays 5 to 7 eggs each week and can lay up to 500 in her short lifetime. Do not wait. Call a professional pest management company like Pest Masters Inc. Novi to schedule a bedbug inspection.

Bedbug Bites
Bedbug bites are actually painless during the time the bug is drinking your blood. The bites only become painful hours afterward. Bites tend to be in rows on your skin instead of scattered at random. If you do not see any bedbugs or signs of bedbugs and yet keep waking up with tiny red itchy sores, the chances are high that these bites were caused by bedbugs. Schedule an inspection as soon as possible. The bites will only get worse over time as the bedbugs multiply.

Strange Spots
Are you finding strange little dark spots on your mattress, bedding, couch or other furniture? The spots will be slightly larger than the period at the end of this sentence. They smear easily. If the spots are black, dark brown or dark red, these are signs of bedbugs. The spots are bedbug feces. They are dark because they consist of digested blood. To make sure, dampen a paper towel and rub the spots. If they turn red, that’s a sure sign of bedbug droppings. These spots or smears will get worse over time if ignored. Eventually, they will emit an offensive odor.

Presence of Eggs
Are you finding peculiar tiny white or ivory colored oval objects stuck to your furniture, bedding or scattered on your carpet? These are eggs. Unhatched eggs are very sticky and difficult to dislodge from whatever surface the female stuck them on. After they hatch, egg casings dry up and fall to the ground. The average bedbug egg is 1 millimeter long.

Presence of Adults
Adults can be just seen with the naked eye. They look like oval drops of liquid with legs. Colors can range from nearly transparent to a dark brown, depending on the bedbug’s age.

If you find just one bedbug, consider your home infested. Do not wait. Call a professional pest management company like Pest Masters Inc. at Novi to schedule a bedbug inspection.
