How to identify bed bugs? Call the bed bug experts! Many insects bite, so it’s important to accurately identify bed bugs. The problem is that bed bugs are often difficult to find. They are small, nocturnal, and relatively fast. Only about 3/16-inch long, 1/8-inch wide, broadly oval, and flat, bed bugs’ small size and flat shape means they easily slip into the smallest crack or crevice. They’ve been known to crawl behind switch plates and outlet covers to hide in walls. They slip behind baseboards, under carpet, and between the boards of hardwood floors. They hide behind the screen of fabric under furniture and in picture frames. Of course mattresses, box springs, headboards, and slatted bed frames are popular hiding places.
These are just a few reasons you need the experienced professionals at Thrasher Termite & Pest Control to identify bed bugs, locate their hiding places, and eliminate bed bugs.
