Over the course of many bed bug extermination jobs, Swift-X Pest Control has collected samples of various infestation pictures. This might be helpful for anyone who is not sure what to look for when trying to determine if they have bed bugs in their home.
Here are some examples of bed bugs and their eggs that you might notice when searching thoroughly around your bed frame, mattress, or box spring:
Not all bed bug infestations will be located around the actual spots as displayed in these pictures. When contacting your bed bug exterminator, they will be inspecting other key areas such as the night stand tables, curtains, picture frames, electrical outlets, and baseboards surrounding the bedroom.
Many underestimate the fact that an infestation can still exist heavily with the walls of any dwelling. The only way to treat for this is to have a professional bed bug exterminator perform the methods affecting the baseboards, cracks and crevices. This should include a dust or specific powder used in conjunction with a residual spray to cover all key areas, surrounding the room’s perimeter.
Your exterminator may also recommend using a mattress and/or box spring encasement as part of the treatment process. This will ensure that no bed bugs can get out of the mattress/box spring, if deep inside. It will also help mitigate any new ones crawling up into the box spring, which presents many hiding places for them.
