The truth is, bed bugs made a huge resurgence in the early 2000s when global travel was at its peak. Now, they’re everywhere and anywhere people come and go.

Rose’s Bed Bug Solutions
Success in getting control of a bed bug situation requires open communication and a solid partnership between you and your pest management professional. Here’s what to expect when you partner up with Rose’s experts:
Inspection & Survey
In order to provide a quote for a solution, our expert first conducts an inspection to evaluate the severity of a bed bug infestation. Visual inspection, monitors, pitfall traps, and protective bed coverings may be used to tell us exactly how to go about treating for that particular situation. Your technician will provide you with an instructional sheet at this time to make sure you’re properly prepared for treatment.
Factors such as how many rooms are affected, how much clutter could be providing harborage opportunities and how much of a population of live insects are present will help our staff determine the most effective solution to gain control of the situation. Rose’s experts use conventional methods and proactive techniques for the proper control of bed bugs. Prevention tips and proper education will help avoid future infestations.
Monitoring & Reporting
Follow up inspections are necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment performed. At this time, using our monitoring methods in step 1, we reassess the situation, determining if additional treatments will be necessary. A detailed report is provided, explaining our findings, recommendations, and next steps.
What Are Common Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation?
Because bed bugs are experts at hiding, many people do not notice them until they have a full-blown infestation in their homes. These are common warning signs you should be on the lookout for:
- Dark flecks or spots on your mattress, box spring, or bedding (bloodstains or excrement)
- Insects in the seams of your bedding or mattress
- Linear-patterned bites on your body (bites may itch or look like a rash)
- Translucent insect shells (shed bed bug skins) on or around your bed
- Discarded bed bug eggshells (white and similar to a small grain of rice)
- Musky odor emitted by the bed bugs’ scent glands
Don’t assume any bug bite you have is from bed bugs. Physicians cannot give a positive diagnosis of bite marks by examining them, so do not rely on this alone to conclude whether or not you may have bed bugs. Also, keep in mind that bite reactions may not show up for several days after being bitten. If you’ve looked for bed bugs and haven’t found any evidence of an infestation, these creatures could still be present. Bed bugs are cryptic survivors and can easily go undetected.
“Efficient, informative, and professional.”
Dealing with bed bugs was far less stressful than I would have imagined, and I believe that’s largely in part to Shawn and Otis. Efficient, informative, and professional.
Really, the best.

What Are Bed Bugs? What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Bed bugs are parasitic, small, and wingless insects that feed on human and animal blood. That’s right. Your pets are just as much of a snack to them as you are. They’re reddish-brown in color and about the size of an apple seed when they’re in their adult stage. Their bodies are flat and oval-shaped. Smaller life stages are harder to see, especially before they have filled up with blood and can be anywhere from one to seven millimeters long. Although they do not fly, bed bugs can move pretty quickly – and they multiply even more rapidly.
Each female can lay hundreds of eggs within their lifetime. Given ideal conditions, bed bugs can develop fully within a month. They are typically nocturnal, emerging from their hiding places to feed on their hosts while they’re sleeping. Bed bugs can make their home just about anywhere, including in your mattress or bed frame, behind pictures or wallpaper, under baseboards, and in small flooring or furniture crevices. Anywhere you or your pet spend hours of time is a hot spot and magnet for bed bug activity.
Bed bugs easily adapt to their surroundings. Not only can bed bugs survive over a year without feeding, but they can also brave temperatures from near-freezing to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. They’re very hardy and definitely not the kind of bug you can get rid of with some kind of spray you buy from the hardware store. If you have bed bugs in your home, you need a bed bug exterminator … and pronto. Rose understands what you’re going through and is here to help
