Signs of Bed Bugs

In the United States bed bugs where thought to be a thing of the past up till about a decade ago. This all changed even reaching epidemic levels in some major cities due to increased international travel, families relocating, and recession cutbacks on pest control measures. Bed bugs are hitchhiking pests that are hard to find and nest in dark, undisturbed crevices near their food source - humans and domestic animals.

How do you know if you have bed bugs?

  • The most common indicator is unexplained “mosquito like” bites on the body, usually the arms or legs, although it must be stressed that this alone is not enough to rule other possible causes. Some people do not react to bed bug bites at all due to the injection of anticoagulants and anesthetics that numb the area around the bite.
  • A more certain sign of a bed bug problem is tiny blood spots and/or black markings that resemble ink spots found on bed sheets or around the seams of the mattress. After bed bugs feed, they tend to drip blood and fecal matter as they return from the feeding site to their nest.
  • Large bed bug infestations are often accompanied by a distinctive odor that is generally musty and sweet-smelling. This unique odor sometimes resembles that of raspberries, moldy shoes, or almonds.
  • Adult bed bugs are visible to the human eye and are about the shape and size of an apple seed. They usually have a rusty brown coloration, though they may appear red if they fed recently. Bed bugs normally have flattened bodies, but they become bloated and slightly elongated after feeding.
  • Bed bugs hide and nest in almost anything: mattresses, bed clothes, box springs, bed frames and headboards, couch cushions, cracks and crevices in walls or hardwood flooring, electrical outlets, pictures frames, wall paper, and inside dresser drawers.
  • Bed bugs are attracted to their hosts by carbon dioxide emitted from breathing, but also by body heat. They generally feed every five to ten days, although they have been known to survive for up to a year without feeding. Bed bugs feed nocturnally, coming out of their nest for a blood meal that usually lasts about five minutes.

Some Ways Not to Get Rid of Bed Bugs

To alleviate bed bug problems quickly some people turn to DIY treatments that are ineffective or even dangerous.

  • Turning up the heat - this is not practical, as the thermal death point for bed bugs is 115º F. Treatments relying on heat or CO2 cannot reach all of the locations where bed bugs hide.
  • Leaving the area vacant – even for an extended period of time, starving bed bugs by depriving them of human hosts is inefficient and costly since bed bugs can go for over a year without feeding. It can also just encourage them to eventually migrate elsewhere.

There is no easy way to get rid of bed bugs on your own. It’s important to note that specific chemical and non-chemical procedures must be used in proper sequence to end infestations. Bed bug removal requires professional treatment and experience. We want you to get the most for your money, but most importantly, the most out of your sleep.

Scratching during the day may indicate the presence of a bat, but this is uncommon.

More common sources of scratching or clawing during the day is a squirrel or a yellowjacket hive in the drywall, if it is summer.

A scratching sound coming from the attic is a good indication of the presence of a bat. The scratching may be constant or intermittent and may occur at day or night, though with a bat, this scratching will usually be heard at night. This is the sounds of the claws on the bat's wings as it moves around.

It may also indicate the presence of mice, however. An inspection is necessary to more directly pinpoint the source of the sound.

Gnawing sounds during the day are almost always due to the presence of a rodent, such a mouse, squirrel, chipmunk, or sometimes a rat. Rodents are characterized by their large incisor teeth, which continually grow and must be worn down by constant gnawing. Rodents will gnaw on wires, insulation and anything else they can find in an attic. Many house fires due to electrical problems are caused by damaged wires due to squirrel gnawing.

If you are hearing gnawing or chewing sounds at night, it may indicate the presence of a raccoon. Usually this will be accompanied by other noises, such as heavy walking. If you do not hear this, it may be a flying squirrel or some other rodent.

A "rolling" sound is usually due to the presence of a red squirrel bringing in nuts or other debris and rolling it around up in the attic, as squirrels will use attics to hoard food. If you hear this sound during the day, it is certainly a red squirrel, since red squirrels are the only mammals that commonly get into attics that are active during the day (flying squirrels get into attics as well but they are nocturnal). The "rolling" sound associated with a squirrel is sometimes described as the sound of marbles rolling.

If it is not a squirrel, there's a possibility a rolling sound could be made by birds moving around in a tight space.

Rolling sounds at night can be caused by flying squirrels, which are nocturnal. It is made by the squirrel bringing nuts or other debris into the attic or wall.

Raccoons may also make a rolling sound, though this is less common.

Scampering or scurrying during the day is almost always attributable to a squirrel, as most other scurrying animals (such as mice) are nocturnal.

A scurrying or scampering sound at night is usually due to mice moving through the walls, ceiling, or along the floor.

Nocturnal flying squirrels may make this noise as well; peak periods of activity for flying squirrels are just before dawn and shortly after sunset. Their scurrying is light and fast.

Raccoons may also make this sort of noise, but with a raccoon it will be more of a "walking" sound, a bit heavier than a squirrel, and not as fast.

Heavy walking or crawling is a very unique sound that almost always indicates the presence of a raccoon, whether it occurs during the day or night.

If you can clearly hear the sound of flapping during the day, it is definitely a bird.

If you hear flapping at night, it is either a trapped bird or a bat. Nuisance birds are generally not active at night, so if you hear flapping it may be a bird that has become trapped. The flapping of a bat's wings is very soft, almost like a dull whirring. If you hear a very faint, soft whirring, it may mean a bat is flying around nearby in the dark.

Crackling is a very particular noise that is generally made by a yellowjacket hive within the drywall of your home. yellowjackets will pick and gnaw on drywall and use the pieces to construct their hives. The sound of this gnawing is often described as a crackling; it sounds a lot like Rice Krispies popping. If you hear this, it means the yellowjackets are close to gnawing through the dry wall. It is not as common at night, but certainly can happen then as well if the hive is big enough.

A sound of chirping or chattering usually means there are baby animals present. What species depends on the season, but it is very common for baby squirrels, raccoons, or birds (especially chimney swifts) to make these noises. Please contact Creature Control for a more thorough diagnosis.
