A bed bug infestation is one of the biggest fears for most Americans
Losing the cleanliness and safety of your home can leave you feeling powerless and frustrated. Bed bugs can come into your house through a wide variety of ways ranging from clinging to your clothes to coming in through bags and visitors. There is no way to screen every item that comes into your home, especially if you have kids. If you have noticed small red bites that become itchy over time, you may have bed bugs in your home. Once they get into your home, bed bugs can quickly multiply and turn into a full-blown infestation.
If you think that you might have bed bugs, you should call in the professionals at Cato’s Exterminating Company today.
The Signs Of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are tiny insects that live in your bedding and around your living spaces feeding on your blood as you sleep.
The most noticeable sign that you have bed bugs is if you are finding small red bites on you and your family that become itchy over time. These bites look very similar to fleabites but they do not have the red dot in the middle that fleabites have. You may also notice small bloodstains on your bedding or dark spots on your sheets, clothes or walls. If you have a severe infestation, you will also smell an offensive odor that comes from the bugs’ scent glands.
If you think you have bed bugs you should immediately remove your bedding and look for the bugs in all of the small cracks and crevices around your sleeping area. If you are unsure if you have bed bugs, we are happy to come out to your home and do a thorough check for you.

If you have a small infestation, you can help control the numbers of bed bugs by vacuuming your bed and the surrounding areas thoroughly. There are very few things that you can do to eliminate bed bugs on your own as bed bugs can survive for up to a year without feeding. If you have found any bed bugs in your home, you need to call an exterminator immediately.
