Bed bugs are little creatures that infest, especially beds, and feed on human or animal blood. This causes skin to itch, and makes little red spots. They insects are flat, small, and brownish in color. They do not fly, but they are able to move very quickly.
There are a few signs that you might have an infestation:
• Itchy areas on your body
• Small blood stains on your sheets
• A musty odor from the bedbugs’ scent gland
• Egg shells, skin that was shed, or fecal spots
If you think you have a bedbug infestation, follow these few steps to check:
• Remove all bed sheets and examine them for signs of bedbugs
• Check the box spring and all its crevices
• Check the surrounding area of the bed
Until recently, bedbug infestations were all but eliminated. However, they made quite a comeback and have reached epidemic proportions in some areas. With people travelling all over the globe, these pests can hitch rides in luggage and on clothing, and end up infesting U.S. homes. Once they’re in your home, they can be extremely difficult to get rid of.
Home remedies for these pests are plentiful, but they are also ineffective. Bedbugs need to be removed by professionals who are equipped with the latest pest control technology. Our trained technicians at Simmons Pest Management can quickly and efficiently rid your home of bedbugs no matter how bad the infestation.

The treatment of bedbugs is fairly simple: clean everything. Clean all fabrics, including bed sheets, curtains, and clothing. Use hot water and dry at the highest setting. Scrub the seams of your mattress before vacuuming.
After cleaning and scrubbing, vacuum the bed and the area around it. Then immediately get rid of the vacuumed contents by throwing it away and placing the trash bag outside. It is also important to get rid of clutter and trash around the bed, as bedbugs can hide just about anywhere.
If your mattress is infested, it might be a good idea to throw it out completely and get a new one. Before getting a new one, make sure that all the bedbugs are completely gone so they don’t infest again.
