Beaumont California Pest & Termite offers bed bug control to the Beaumont area. Part of our mission is to protect residents of bed bug infestations as they are on the rise here recently. We have gotten numerous calls regarding bed bug control and we understand this is a difficult and annoying issue to have.
Bed bugs are often found in your bed, hence their name, however they can be found in any place where humans are often found; chairs, couches, hotel rooms, etc. This is one reason many people can go years without bed bugs and then one day discover their bed is infested with them. Where did they come from? Most likely from a used piece of furniture you recently purchased or a place you recently visited that already had bed bugs. You unknowingly brought them home and now you have to deal with them. This can be a huge frustration.
Bed Bug Identification
Bed bugs are small in nature, about 1/4″ in size with a flat, oval body shape. As stated before, bed bugs are often found in beds; mattress seams and cracks, holes, and crevices in a bed frame. If you see what appears to be blood or fecal matter on your sheets, mattress, or anywhere near your bed, give Beaumont California Pest & Termite a call right away to learn more about the next step.

Bed bugs are very good at going unnoticed which is why many people won’t even know they have them until they are facing an infestation. However, if you awake with bites all over your body, you should investigate for bed bugs. Catching them early on is always beneficial.
Bed bugs feed on our blood using a stylet which they use to pierce our skin. An interesting fact, when bed bugs insert this stylet they also inject their saliva which numbs the skin. This is why you don’t typically feel them feeding on you just from a bite alone. Common symptoms of bed bug bites include:
Bed bug bites can be treated at home with over the counter creams and treatments.
