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.

How Rose Treats/Removes Residential Bed Bug Infestations
Rose Pest Solutions has developed a three-tier bed bugs solution using eco-friendly integrated pest management best practices. One of the first of its kind, our bed bug prevention program is like an insurance program. Under our watch, you’re protected. And if something happens while you’re on this program, we’ll cover the treatments when necessary. There’s little to no odor involved in our heat and bio remediation methods, and it’s suitable for all homes (and even high-rise buildings). While it does need some prep work and follow-up appointments, it’s combinable with our general pest control full-coverage programs for your peace of mind. Success in pest control for bed bugs requires a partnership between you and your chosen pest management professional. Here’s what to expect when you choose our trusted bed bug company:
- Bed Bug Inspection & Survey – Bed bug detection is the first step to combating an infestation. Our team is experienced with bed bug identification. One of our licensed professionals will confirm and determine the severity of your bed bug infestation using a visual inspection, monitors, traps, and protective bed coverings. Our technician will then provide you with an instructional sheet to ensure you’re properly prepared for bed bug treatment.
- Bed Bug Treatment – Using the monitors put in place during our initial visual bed bug inspection, we will work with you to determine what type of bed bug treatment would be the most effective. We use bio remediation, thermal remediation (heat treatment for bed bugs), conventional methods, and proactive techniques for the proper control of bed bugs. We will discuss the right method for your situation prior to your treatment date to ensure everyone is on the same page.
- Bed Bug Monitoring & Reporting – Follow-up bed bug inspections are necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of our bed bug treatments. During this time, we’ll use the same monitoring methods in the survey process to determine if additional treatments are needed. Our bed bug services come with a detailed report explaining our findings, recommendations, and next steps.
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. Reddish-brownish and about the size of an apple seed, bed bugs look like flat-bodied oval-shaped bugs. They can be anywhere from one to seven millimeters long, making them difficult to detect by the naked eye. Although they do not fly, bed bugs can move 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. Bed bugs 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.
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. If you have bed bugs in your home, you need a bed bug exterminator … and pronto. Rose’s multiple bed bug solutions (thermal, conventional, and proactive) allow you to choose what’s best for your home.
