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. If you have noticed small red bites that become itchy over time, you may have bed bugs. Once they get into your home, bed bugs can quickly multiply and turn into a full-blown infestation.
When you think 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 that become itchy over time. These bites look very similar to fleabites but do not have the red dot in the middle. You may also notice small bloodstains on your bedding, sheets, clothes or walls. In some cases, you will also smell an offensive odor that comes from the bugs’ scent glands.
At the first sign of bed bugs, you should immediately remove your bedding and look for the bugs around your sleeping area. If you are unsure, we are happy to come out to your home and do a thorough check for you.

For 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. When bed bugs are found throughout your home, you need to call an exterminator immediately. Cato’s Exterminating Company proudly offers the best bed bug control products on the market and we stand by our services.
