Bed bugs live in furniture, mattresses, boxes springs, sofas, chairs, pictures, baseboards, and anywhere else they can fit. Most infestations are not found until the people notice bites on their body although you can get bit without knowing it. Bed bug bites are not usually felt by the person. Bed Bugs can lay and wait for their next meal for long periods of time. Some adults have been known to go 1 year without feeding. Bed Bugs typically like to live near their food source (you or a loved one) and will most likely be found in the bedroom or where you spend a lot of time asleep. Bed bugs tend to congregate together but do not live in a colony like ants or termites. Bed bugs are most active at night because that is when the host is asleep.
Females glue their eggs to hidden areas and take 3-5 days to hatch. The eggs are white in color and hold one bed bug per capsule. A female can lay 200-500 eggs in a 10 month period but only lays 3-8 at a time. They reach an adult stage in 35-48 days. Bed bugs can survive cold temperatures but succumb to heat over 113 Fahrenheit after 30 minutes. Steam applied properly and at the right temperature can kill bed bugs on contact.
Bed bugs are ¼ inch long, are very flat, and can be identified by their fecal matter, skin casts, eggs, or a specimen. They can be found in one stitch of sewn fabric on a mattress. Bed Bugs lay and wait in hiding for the host to arrive which is usually you but in a pinch they will bite the family pets.
At Baird's, we offer a strong warranty on our bed bug service. That means if bed bugs return, so do we.
