Southern Oregon's Best Choice For Pest Control

Bed Bugs – They are bad news and on the rise!

life cycle of a bed bug

Human bed bugs were virtually eradicated from the developed world in the middle of the 20th century. However, as of the first decade of the 21st century, bed bugs are back and winning. Bed bug infestations have been reported from all over the US and Europe, and Southern Oregon is no exception. Recent interest in biology and ecology of bed bugs is now being reinforced by increasing numbers of household infestations on a global scale.

 Bed bugs feed every 5-7 days if a host is present. On the days they are not feeding, they are spend their time digesting their previous meal. Blood contains a lot of water so the bed bugs must condense their meal right away and excrete some of the excess liquid as waste. This digested blood is then deposited wherever the bed bugs happen to go after feeding. The excreted waste comes out in a semi-liquid form and can be easily seen on the surfaces of mattresses, bed frames and other locations where the bed bugs travel or aggregate. These fecal spots are black in color because the blood has already been digested and are often seen in groups of 10 or more. However, if the infestation is low, and the bed bug was just passing through the area, there may be another new area that you are not aware of.

One out of every five Americans has had a bed bug infestation in their home or knows someone who has encountered bed bugs at home or in a hotel.

Avoid bringing bed bugs into your home by educating yourself about them.  Go to NPMA Bed Bug Hub for additional information about bed bugs and their prevention.

Bed bugs are nocturnal pests that bite you in your sleep, leaving large welts on your skin.  They do not just live in beds, but may can be found in electrical outlets, behind pictures, bed frames, along baseboards, closets - pretty much anywhere.  They are very hardy, can live a year without eating and can be spread through pipes, electrical outlets, vacuum cleaners, laundry and luggage.
