Fox Pest Control’s Syracuse Bed Bug Exterminator Service

Bed bugs hiding around your place again? It can be hard to tell because they’re pretty shy and are typically nocturnal. You might need a good bed bug treatment, because, as the old saying goes, you really don’t want to let the bed bugs bite. Those little nibbles often appear as red and itchy bumps, typically in a line or small clusters. Some people in Syracuse even experience hives or blistering at the bite site. You need to exterminate bed bugs quickly because they can spread to different rooms and even vehicles as they hitch a ride on human clothing or bedding. At Fox Pest Control, we want you to feel comfortable in your home and can help you get rid of bed bugs.

Signs of an Bed Bug Infestation

You might already know you have a bed bug infestation, but here are a few of the most common signs bed bug exterminators look for in Syracuse. 

Bite Marks

Although bite marks from bed bugs aren’t often seen, some people experience hives or blistering at the bite site.

Fecal Spots

Fecal spots are seen as small, dark, sand-like droppings that occur in patches around and especially beneath nests.

Blood Smears

You may see blood smears on sheets and pillowcases.

Exoskeleton Shells

You may see the presence of their empty molted exoskeletons.

Nasty Odor

Bed bugs can be detected by their characteristic smell of rotting raspberries.

What You Need to Know About Bed Bugs

  • Bed bugs are most active between 5 and 6 a.m.
  • Bed bugs can also quickly spread to different rooms and even vehicles as they hitch a ride on a human host, clothing, or bedding.
  • Adult bed bugs are light brown to reddish-brown, flattened, oval-shaped and have no hind wings. 
  • Bed bugs have segmented abdomens with microscopic hairs that give them a banded appearance. 
  • Adults grow to 4–5 mm in length (just over 3/16 inch) and 1.5–3 mm wide.
  • Newly hatched nymphs are translucent, lighter in color and become browner as they molt and reach maturity.
  • A bed bug of any age that has just consumed a blood meal will appear to have a bright red translucent abdomen; this color will fade to brown over the next several hours and within two days will become opaque and black as the insect digests its meal.
  •  Bed bugs may be mistaken for other insects, such as booklice, small cockroaches, or carpet beetles, however when warm and active, their movements are more ant-like, and they emit a characteristically disagreeable odor when crushed. 

Helpful Bed Bug Prevention Tips:

  • Cover your power outlets – bed bugs use power outlets to hide in to evade extermination.
  • Store your clothing in vacuum-sealed bags. This is especially important when traveling, since bed bugs are most commonly transferred from hotels.
  • Bed bugs often hide within your carpet, so it’s important to thoroughly vacuum your carpets.
  • Clean your pet’s bed as bed bugs can be attracted to your pet’s bed where they can also find warm crevices to lay eggs and feed.

Newly hatched nymphs are translucent, lighter in color and become browner as they molt and reach maturity.

What's the best treatment for a bed bug infestation?

One of the more effective and efficient treatments for a bed bug infestation is the dual pronged approach that Fox Pest Control uses.

This process is repeated one week later.
