Portland Bed Bug Control
Serving Gresham, Lake Oswego, & Surrounding Areas
Bed bugs are small, wingless insects that feed on human blood. They are most active at night when people are sleeping. Bed bugs can travel from place to place using their six legs, and they have the ability to move quickly. They are excellent hitchhikers and can be transported from place to place on clothing, luggage, furniture, or even in the seams of a mattress.
If you think you have bed bugs, contact us immediately at (503) 300-5054 to schedule an inspection.
Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation
Signs of a bed bug infestation include:
- Red, itchy bites: Often in a group of three, these bites can be mistaken for those of mosquitoes or other insects. However, bed bugs are the only insects that bite humans.
- Fluid stains: These stains may appear on sheets, mattresses, or other surfaces. They are often found near the seams of mattresses or where the mattress touches the box spring.
- Live or dead bed bugs: Live bed bugs are tiny, dark brown to reddish brown, and about the size of a pinhead. They are difficult to see, even with magnification.
- Empty egg casings: These are tiny, clear, and round and can be as small as the head of a pin.
The presence of bed bugs can have a significant impact on your quality of life. They are difficult to get rid of and can live for months without feeding. During this time, they can spread to multiple areas of a home or business and travel easily from place to place.
