Bed Bug Pest Control & Extermination Services

Legacy Pest Control exterminators use an integrated bed bug pest control approach of chemical and heat measures to effectively rid your Utah home of bed bug infestations. You can reduce the chance of a bed bug infestation by catching the problem early on.

Bed Bugs are flat, oval insects that are reddish-brown in color. Bed bugs have a distinctly sweet (yet unpleasant) smell and may leave fecal smears in mattresses, sheets, or nearby furnishings. Bed Bugs “bite” and feed strictly on warm-blooded animals such as humans, cats, and dogs. Their thin, flat shape allows bed bugs to hide in unusual places such as cracks and crevices in the flooring, in headboards, under carpets, behind loose wallpaper, and even in cracks near your bed or in the sheets. This makes bed bugs extremely difficult to detect and treat, but not impossible for a skilled exterminator.

Professional Bed Bug Extermination

Legacy Pest Control professionals are highly trained to identify signs of bed bugs. Exterminators will look for dead bed bugs, skins cast off bed bugs, fecal smears, and tiny cream colored eggs that are usually found in dark crevices. Our bed bug pest control Utah exterminators will carefully examine your entire home, usually starting in the bedroom, and paying close attention to furniture, rugs, and linens. Legacy Pest Control exterminators are equipped with tools and equipment to check cracks and crevices bed bugs may be hiding in.

An important aspect of getting rid of bed bugs is understanding how they behave. Here are some things you should know about bed bug pest control:

  • Entry: Bed Bugs are skilled hitchhikers and you can bring them into your home in your personal belongings or even on your clothing.
  • Diet: Bed bugs only feed on the blood of other animals and have been known to survive up to a year without a meal.
  • Nocturnal: Bed bugs tend to be active at night when their host meal is asleep and tucked in to a nice warm bed.
  • Bed Bug Bites: Bites from bed bugs can leave itchy, red bumps on your skin and can even cause allergic reactions in some people.
  • Do-it-yourself ineffectiveness: Not only are bed bugs better at hiding than you are at finding them, but female bed bugs lay eggs every single day.

Bed bugs were almost eliminated around World War II, however, the resurgence of bed bugs has been dramatic in recent years. Bed Bugs can be picked up practically anywhere, and they have nothing to do with the cleanliness of your home. They are known to infest the cleanest Utah homes, 5-star hotels, and businesses alike. Worldwide surges in bed bugs have been attributed to the increase of human travelers who pick them up in their luggage, hotel beds, and other furniture. Once they hitch a ride back to your home, they can be extremely difficult to control.

Frequently Asked Questions on Bed Bug

Cimex lectularius, commonly called bed bugs, are small wingless insects that feed on human and animal blood. These parasites bite people and animals that are sleeping. Bed bugs are typically brown, dark reddish, or reddish-brown. These tough insects can survive for months without eating, making them ideally adapted to enable a single population to be transported across long distances to infest multiple new distant regions.
Bed bugs typically move along with people who are traveling. They are transported in luggage and on the outside of luggage in seams and folds and under storage pocket flaps, clothes, blankets, furniture. They make the journey on or in anything they can find with places to tuck themselves in and hide.
Bed bugs are found throughout the world anywhere people sleep, from the best hotels to public bus seats. Infestation by bed bugs is not related to unsanitary living conditions.
Bed bug infestations usually occur around or near areas where people sleep, in homes, hotels, dorms, trains, buses, etc. They hide under box springs, in mattress seams, behind headboards, under bed frames, behind nightstands, under lamps, in clutter around beds, etc.
One way to determine that a place someone is sleeping has a bed bug infestation is bite marks on the back, arms, chest, stomach, neck, face, or other parts of the person’s body. Other signs of bed bug infestation may include:
  • Bed bugs found in the creases of button-tufted mattresses, in folds of blankets or sheets, behind the headboard, under lamps on the nightstands, or elsewhere near the bed.
  • Dark red spots in the room from their blood-filled excreted fecal matter
  • The exoskeletons of bed bugs from molting
Bed bug bite marks look similar to a flea bite; the skin is red and slightly swollen. In people allergic to bed bugs, symptoms can include more swelling, pain at the site of the insect bite, and in rare cases, anaphylaxis.The above information is not intended for diagnosis or as a substitute for advice from a physician. For information and concerns about bed bugs, consult your doctor.
Bed bugs have not been found to spread any diseases. They do cause severe itching in many people who are bitten by these insect pests, which can lead to extreme scratching that can increase the risk of skin infection. The infection risk is due to bacteria possibly entering through potentially compromised skin damaged at the surface by the scratching.
Bed bug infestation is typically eradicated by spraying the affected area(s) with an insecticide. This insect breed is notoriously difficult to eliminate without intervention by a pest control professional. So, if you think your home may have a bed bug infestation, you should call a licensed pest control company with technicians well experienced in bed bugs treatment.
People who frequently travel or sleep in beds where others have slept are at higher risk of bed bug bites and carrying bed bugs to other locations. The most effective approach to bed bugs prevention in your home is to perform routine inspections of areas where bed bugs are most likely to hide to check for signs of infestation.
