Frequently Asked Questions

Bed bugs are active from January to December.

Bed bugs usually bite people while we’re sleeping on exposed skin. Even though they’re not known to spread disease, bed bugs cause itching leading to sleep loss. Excessive scratching can cause skin damage, which can lead to the chance of a secondary skin infection.

If you suspect you may have a bed bug infestation, you should check your body for bites, as well as small red spots of fecal matter on your bed. Since bed bugs can multiply so rapidly, in as little as six months, one bed bug can lead to a massive problematic infestation with more than 13,000 bed bugs.

Bed bugs may have been close to extinction many years ago, but they’re now back in full force. They are a common pest all around the world. Between our reduced use of pesticides as a society, an increase in international travel and our use of second-hand furniture, these tiny hitchhikers are able to thrive in our society, no matter how clean or dirty your home is. While they don’t travel around on a person, they can travel very well on belongings or fabrics.

The permanent treatment of bed bugs is difficult, because they can be found in so many places that humans frequent, such as hotels, movie theatres, taxis and more. They are parasitic insects that live near their hosts.

During the day, bed bugs hide in dark undisturbed areas of your home, such as furniture, baseboards, carpets and even wallpaper, making them very hard to spot. The warmth and carbon dioxide that humans emit is what attracts bed bugs to us.

The number one cause of bed bug infestations is previously infected furniture or people. There are a few things you can do to try and keep them out of your home.

If you are buying any second-hand furniture or clothing, make sure you inspect them well before purchasing or bringing these items into your home. Check the seams of the upholstery on furniture for any signs of bed bugs or bed bug fecal matter. Even if it looks good, make sure to give it a good clean before bringing it into your home to be extra careful. Clean it thoroughly with hot soapy water and vacuum any fabric.

If you’re traveling and having to stay in hotel rooms, before you unpack, make sure you check your mattress and sheets for any signs of bed bugs.
