How Do You Know if You Have a Bedbug Infestation?

If you have a bed bug infestation, the sooner you call for pest control services, the better. Getting ahead of the problem is key since bedbugs will waste no time establishing themselves and multiplying in numbers. Treating a minor infestation with the help of Tabor Services is far less costly and much easier than treating a more widespread infestation.

Signs of a Bedbug Infestation

You Find an Actual Bed Bug

Fully-grown bed bugs are exceedingly small (about the size of an apple seed) and usually have a distinct, reddish-brown color. Because of their size and their gift for hiding, they’re more difficult to spot than cockroaches or larger spiders–so it helps to have a professional look for you.

You Recently Bought Secondhand Furniture

Secondhand furniture might be a great bargain, but this comes at the expense of hitchhiking bedbugs. If you bring a piece of secondhand furniture into your home and shortly thereafter find evidence of bloodstains, casings, or eggs, bedbugs are likely the cause.

Strange, Musty Odors

A strange, musty odor is one of the most common signs of bedbugs. The odor is caused by the pheromones released by the bugs – and the more bugs that are present, the stronger the smell. If you wake up one day and notice such a smell lingering in the air, contact us for an inspection and quote for pest removal.
