These are pretty crafty creatures, so they have multiple ways to get into your home. One common way is when they ride in on the clothing and luggage of houseguests who aren’t aware of them. Or, consignment or thrift store purchases—such as mattresses, furniture, or clothing—can have them if these items came from places where bed bug infestations existed.

Thermal Remediation® uses only high heat to kill bed bugs at every stage of their life cycle in just one treatment. There’s no chemical fumigation, so no toxins are left behind and you and your pets can return to your home right after treatment is completed. Heat treatment can penetrate even the smallest cracks and crevices.
After our bed bug experts confirm that these pests are in your home and locate their hiding places, we use the latest insecticide dust and residual contact treatments. As part of this thorough and effective bed bug control strategy, we provide an initial treatment, plus two more follow-up visits one and two weeks later.
Although these critters can be tricky to spot, they can sometimes be visible, perhaps on the underside of your mattress, when they aren’t hiding in cracks and crevices. If you can’t see any bed bugs, that doesn’t mean, though, that you don’t have any.
Other signs include tiny bites on skin that comes in contact with your mattress or bed linens. Common spots include your arms, legs, and back. Or, you might see spots on your sheets, either brown or red. These may be drops of blood from bed bug bites that have dried. Here’s another potential sign: a musty odor in your mattress or comforter.
So, what can you do? It’s advisable to wash towels, sheets, and other linens in hot water, including those in storage. Inspect suitcases and travel bags for signs of infestation.
Besides that, though, if you’re seeing signs of bed bug infestations, don’t waste time with DIY treatments. Instead, you need a professional solution that really works, one provided by an experienced team. The comprehensive program at Turner Pest Control includes:
These tiny pests are elusive, hardy, and always on the move. The cleanliness of a dwelling has nothing to do with attracting bed bugs or preventing them from getting in. Bed bugs have continued to adapt to human environments and can thrive in a wide range of temperature and many types of conditions.
Bed bugs will take any opportunity to hitch a ride into your home on luggage, furniture, and other soft goods such as clothing. When traveling, put a plastic trash bag or other protective covering on your luggage while you’re in a hotel and keep your suitcases off of the bed. Check hotel bedding, box springs and mattresses for tiny, pepper-like stains when you arrive, and thoroughly inspect all of your belongings before bringing them inside when you get home. Also inspect any used furniture or clothing you’ve acquired before you bring it inside.
Once indoors, these pests quickly spread from room to room in homes or hotels, traveling through pipes, on luggage and clothing, and even in vacuum cleaners. Because they can live for months without eating, they can be very difficult to control.
Definitely not! They can be found virtually anywhere, not only in soft goods such as beds and furniture, but also behind electrical outlets and in crevices along baseboards.
Bed bugs do not transmit diseases to humans, but their bites can cause itchy welts that may become infected if scratched.
