Miami Beach Bed Bug Solutions

Think you may have bed bugs? Or maybe you know because you’ve discovered them or traces of their presence; either way, you’re likely freaking out right about now. And we don’t blame you, but we’re here to help.

Bed bugs have been taking the states by storm lately, invading states all across the U.S. It’s likely they’ve already been here, but we haven’t started noticing until here recently.

If you travel a lot you may even be more at risk, however it’s quite easy to pick up bed bugs in a variety of ways/locations, so a regular inspection is recommended. This way you can catch the signs of an infestation early on and have a better time of getting rid of them. When they go unnoticed for just a short time, they start to breed and infest a room (if not the entire home or property) in a very short time.

Identifying Bed Bugs

  • Bed bugs are 3/16 to 1/4 inch long (close to an apple seed in size).
  • Bed bugs have brownish/reddish, oval-shaped bodies that become elongated after feeding.
  • Bed bugs will infest more than your mattress; curtains, furniture around the bed, wall outlets and decor – all are hiding spots in a bed bug’s eyes.

Protect Your Home From Bed Bugs

Luckily, there are ways to protect against a bed bug infestation if you haven’t yet had to experience them. Consider the following:

  • Before purchasing second hand furniture and items, check them for signs of bed bugs.
  • Protect your mattress and box springs with a specialty cover.
  • Eliminate any clutter in the home; fewer spots for the bed bugs to hide.
  • Vacuum regularly.

Traveling Bed Bugs

In addition, if you travel regularly be sure to check the room before you actually sleep in a hotel. Inspect the mattress and bedding (including frame) for signs of bed bugs. Fixtures and furniture around the entire room should be inspected because even if they aren’t in the bed, it doesn’t mean they aren’t in the room. If they go unseen, there is a chance they will make their way into your luggage and you’ll unknowingly bring them home.
