Unfortunately, bed bugs are a difficult pest to exterminate without some patience and experience.
Bed bugs have been found in all types of dwellings and even in transportation vehicles. Once established, they can live anywhere such as cracks and crevices and they can easily travel in suitcases, boxes or even shoes. They prefer to stay close to their food sources (humans) and will typically be found in your mattress, box spring or couch. Proper and professional bed bug treatment and service is often the best remedy to get in control of the home problem in Indianapolis.
When a pest control company comes to inspect your property, they’re searching for an adult bed bug that’s around 1/4 inch long. They have an oval shape from above, but are flattened from top to bottom. Their color varies from nearly white (right after molting) to a light tan to a dark brown or burnt orange. The host’s blood may appear as a dark red or black mass within the bug’s body. The hatchling bed bugs are about the size of a poppy seed and cast skins of these bugs are sometimes discovered.
Bed bugs are wingless insects that feed solely upon the blood of warm-blooded animals. They and their relatives have evolved as nest parasites. Certain kinds inhabit bird nests and bat roosts; others have adapted well to living in the homes of people.
Bed bugs will by nature seek out a host at night. Once a person or animal is available, this insect will painlessly sip a few drops of blood. It is reported that 50% of people are sensitive or become sensitive to bed bug saliva. Additional bites over the course of days or weeks may then result in mild to intense allergic responses. Service is needed!
As fate would have it, the skin lesions produced by the bite of a bed bug resembles those caused by many other kinds of blood feeding insects, such as mosquitoes and fleas. So the offending insect, therefore, can’t be identified by the appearance of the bites alone. The affected person should resist the urge to scratch the bites, as this may intensify the irritation and itching, and may lead to secondary infection.
Physicians often treat patients with insect bites with antihistamines and corticosteroids to reduce allergic reactions and inflammation.
Bed bug infestations have increased dramatically in the past few years. They affect all neighborhoods and the causes are related to international travel and the use of exterminating methods that do not work on these bugs.

Bed bug on the skin
Adult Bed Bugs are about 1/4 of an inch in length, while hatchlings are about the size of a poppy seed. They are oval, flat, and reddish brown. They have piercing mouthparts to draw blood for food. Females lay about 200 eggs which hatch in about 1 to 2 weeks. Newborn bed bugs will be ready to lay their own eggs in 4 to 8 weeks.
Bed bugs can be found often by looking for black stains or smears on beds, which are the bugs’ droppings. Sometimes an engorged bug is accidentally killed or disgorged by accidental crushing, resulting in a visible blood stain. They hide in cracks and crevices of a room including furniture, moldings, outlets, and carpeting. They generally stay as close to the host (you) as possible. At Whistler Pest Control, we take great pride in our organization and strongly believe that our services should always exceed our customer’s expectations.
