Signs You Have Bed Bugs
It can be challenging to tell when you have bed bugs, and early warning signs are not always easy to detect. Thankfully, some signs can help you identify a bed bug infestation.
Some of the most common signs of bed bug activity include:
- You or your family have been waking up with itchy, round red bites
- A musty smell
- Small “shells” or shed skins of molting bed bugs on your sheets or mattress
- Regular red patches on your skin surface overnight (not everyone reacts to the bites the same way, though many people describe the patches as itchy)
- Small, dark spots on your sheets or mattress
Bed bugs can also often infest areas and items in the home that you may not expect, including books, electronics, picture frames, dressers, and nightstands. Using our independent K-9 scent detection team, we can quickly identify bed bug nesting areas before the issue spreads, allowing us to locate problem areas. When we reach the problem early, we only have to treat the area or areas with an actual bed bug issue.
If you’ve experienced any of these signs and symptoms in your home, it may be time to call the professionals. The extermination process can be time-consuming, but it’s worth having a house free of bed bugs. Reach out to Pest and Termite Consultants today to schedule an appointment.
Our Sleep Well Advantage
At Pest and Termite Consultants, we believe in providing the absolute best bed bug remediation service in the state. We back this up with a no-hassle warranty called “The Sleep Well Advantage.”
Our bed bug control method includes the following:
- We start by performing a thermal remediation treatment in the unit with the infestation. We heat the rooms to 140 degrees for about four hours, which allows us to heat and penetrate where the bed bugs and viable eggs are—the books, electronics, wall voids, electrical outlets, and, of course, the furniture.
- We then perform full preventative chemical treatments in all of the rooms of the infested unit, setting a chemical residual in the area that will continue to last for up to 4 to 6 weeks.
- We then apply preventative chemical treatments, at no additional cost to you, in all units adjacent to the infested area, i.e., above, below, or shared walls to the side. This allows us to protect those adjacent units and ensure that no underlying issues stem from those units, which is a massive problem in multi-unit settings.
- We end our service by educating our customers about bed bugs, as there is no way to provide a successful treatment without educating the tenants and office staff—the information goes hand in hand with the treatments we provide. A solid understanding of what caused the issue is necessary to ensure it does not happen again. We also offer a 60-day warranty with 90-day options as well.
Including all of the above in our multi-unit treatments has allowed us to perform over 4,200 thermal remediation treatments over the years while maintaining a 99.9% success rate. We take great pride in being the state’s number one bed bug exterminator. Let us help you protect your property today.
Please give us a call for a free, no-obligation consultation that will allow us to show you how our “Sleep Well Advantage” can help your property.
What Is a K9 Scent Detection Team for Bed Bug Extermination?
K9 scent detection teams are an effective way to detect the presence of bed bugs. A K9 scent detection team is composed of a dog and its handler—often an exterminator or pest control technician. The dogs are trained to recognize the smell of bed bugs and alert their handler when bed bugs are present. The detection team will go through your home and sniff out any potential hiding spots where bed bugs might lurk. If a bed bug is present, the K9 scent detection team will alert its handler to the location of the infestation. We use this information to determine the best course of action for extermination.
We use the state’s leading independent K9 scent detection teams to pinpoint areas of infestation that might otherwise go undetected until the problem gets worse and, therefore, harder to treat. Our teams use multiple K9 inspectors independently during each inspection to provide us with the most thorough and accurate assessment of your home or business.
K9 scent detection teams are a reliable and efficient way to detect the presence of bed bugs, allowing us to quickly work on eradicating an infestation. With a K9 scent detection team, you can rest assured that the problem will be identified and dealt with quickly and effectively.

Bed Bug FAQ
Can I treat a bed bug infestation on my own?
Trying to tackle a bed bug infestation on your own can be dangerous and ineffective. Bed bugs are persistent, resilient pests that hide in tight spaces and reproduce quickly. If you do not handle the problem correctly, the infestation could spread and become more severe. Further, suppose you attempt DIY treatments with pesticides or products not specifically designed to treat bed bugs. In that case, you could end up putting your health and your family’s health at risk. Not only can these products be dangerous in an enclosed space, but they are also often ineffective against bed bugs.
We have the tools and knowledge to correctly identify the problem, formulate a treatment plan, and eliminate the issue effectively and safely. Additionally, we educate our customers on preventing bed bugs from returning after they are eradicated. So don’t try to tackle bed bug issues alone—give us a call!
Why choose thermal remediation for bed bug treatment?
Thermal remediation, otherwise known as heat treatment, is the most effective way to eliminate bed bugs. Thermal remediation allows us to heat and penetrate the walls, baseboards, outlets, furniture, books, and electronics, reaching those hard-to-locate bed bugs. We will also cover your entire home with a six-month warranty, with upgrade options available.
Can bed bugs return after treatment?
Bed bugs are challenging to remove once they have set up residence in your home. Even after a thorough treatment, there is always the chance that some bed bug eggs may go undetected and hatch later on, reintroducing the problem. Bed bugs are also good at hiding and can travel quickly between rooms or even dwellings, allowing them to return if not entirely and swiftly eradicated.
Our treatment is comprehensive and effective, and we take steps to ensure that bed bugs do not return; however, it is never a bad idea to work to prevent them. The best way to prevent bed bugs from returning is by proactively using mattress encasements and regularly inspecting areas around baseboards, behind headboards, and other crevices for any bed bugs or eggs. Be sure to vacuum periodically since this can eliminate any bed bugs that may have survived the treatment process. With consistent preventive measures and quick action, you can help ensure that bed bugs will not return after we treat your home.
Are bed bugs dangerous?
Bed bugs are not dangerous in terms of transmitting diseases; however, their presence can cause a great deal of discomfort. They feed on human blood and can cause itchy bites that may lead to irritation and inflammation.
