Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs

About this project

Especially in the Bay Area, increased international travel and resistance to pesticides have created a perfect storm for bed bug resurgence. Bed bugs only feed on blood and are most active at night when the host is sleeping (That would be you). Being the size of an apple seed, they are difficult to spot. If you’re noticing brown or black stains around your mattress or box spring along with red bites, you may have bed bugs.

That doesn’t mean your filthy. These little buggers could have hitched a ride in your luggage or accidentally been brought into your home. Day & Nite Pest Control has been protecting homes and businesses in the Bay Area for more than 38 years. Our technicians are highly trained in bed bug identification, inspection and treatment.

In cooler climates, bed bugs may survive up to a year without a host. After a meal, bed bugs retreat to their hiding spot where they defecate (appearing as black or brown stains). Females will lay up to five eggs a day, totaling 200 to 500 eggs in a bed bug’s lifespan. Eggs hatch within two weeks and begin to feed right away.

Distinguishing Characteristics:
Bed bugs are reddish-brown, oval in shape and about the size of an apple seed. Before a meal, these wingless insects are flat. After a blood meal they are swollen in appearance. As baby bed bugs age, they shed their skins which may be found in cracks their hiding.

If you’re waking up in the morning with bites on exposed areas of the body in a line or zig-zag pattern, contact Day & Nite Pest control right away. We have extensive bed bug experience in the Bay Area.
