Sebastian Bed Bugs Control

Helping You Get Rid of Bed Bugs For Good in Sebastian, Palm Bay, and Melbourne

Bed bugs are small, wingless insects that feed on human blood. They are most active at night and hide during the day. Bed bugs are often found in hotels, hostels, dorm rooms, and apartments, but they can live in any place where people sleep.

Bed bugs can hitchhike from place to place in luggage, clothing, and even on used furniture. Once they get into a home or business, they spread quickly and are very difficult to get rid of without professional help.

What are the Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation?

Signs of a bed bug infestation include:

  • Red, itchy bites: Bed bug bites are small, red welts that appear in clusters. The bites often itch intensely and may have a small amount of clear liquid in the center.
  • Strange smells: When bed bugs are present, a musty odor can often be detected. The smell is similar to that of a stale cigarette.
  • Small, dark spots: When bed bugs are present, small dark spots of excrement may be found on bed sheets or mattresses.
  • Live bed bugs: Live bed bugs are tiny but visible to the naked eye. These wingless insects are as small as an apple seed but can grow as large as an apple pip.

Bed bugs are difficult to get rid of on your own. They are very good at hiding and can spread quickly throughout a home or business. Professional bed bug control in Sebastian is best to eliminate an infestation and prevent further spread.

How Do You Get Rid of Bed Bugs?

Getting rid of bed bugs can be a challenging and time-consuming process. It often requires a combination of methods to be effective. 

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to eliminate bed bugs from your home:

  • Confirm the Infestation: Make sure you have a bed bug infestation. Look for physical signs, such as live bugs, shed skins, fecal spots, and bloodstains on your bedding.
  • Isolate Infested Areas: Isolate the infested rooms or areas to prevent bed bugs from spreading to other parts of your home.
  • Reduce Clutter: Declutter the infested area to eliminate hiding spots for bed bugs.
  • Wash and Dry Bedding: Remove all bedding, curtains, and any washable items and wash them in hot water. Dry them at a high temperature.
  • Use Bed Bug-proof Mattress Encasements: Invest in bed bug-proof encasements for your mattress and box spring to trap any bugs inside and prevent them from feeding.
  • Vacuum Thoroughly: Vacuum all surfaces, including mattresses, box springs, carpets, baseboards, and crevices. Empty the vacuum bag or canister into a sealed plastic bag, and dispose of it outdoors.
  • Steam Cleaning: Use a steam cleaner to treat cracks, crevices, and seams in furniture and mattresses, as high temperatures can kill bed bugs and their eggs.
  • Apply Pesticides: If the infestation is severe, consider using an approved bed bug insecticide. Always follow the label instructions, and consider consulting a pest control professional for safe and effective application.
  • Repeat Treatments: Bed bugs can be resilient, so you may need to repeat treatments. Follow up with inspections and additional treatments as needed.
  • Prevent Reinfestation:
  1. Be cautious when bringing in used furniture or clothing. Inspect items carefully.
  2. Use bed bug interceptors on your bed legs to trap and monitor any potential invaders.
  3. Continue to vacuum and maintain a clean and clutter-free environment.
  • Consult a Professional: If the infestation is severe or persists despite your efforts, consider hiring a professional pest control service. They have the expertise and tools to effectively eliminate bed bugs.

Remember that dealing with bed bugs can be challenging, and it may take time to completely eradicate them from your home. Patience and persistence are essential in the process of getting rid of bed bugs.
