You’re probably familiar with the horror stories surrounding bed bugs. These pests can sneak their way into beds and other furniture and feed off of you, your family, or your guests. Bed bugs contribute to a number of sleepless nights in your home, but the real nightmare can be eliminating these pests if you notice the warning signs too late.
If you live in New York, know that you have a partner in eliminating bed bugs from your home or business, guaranteed.
What Are Bed Bugs?
A bed bug is a tiny oval-shaped insect that appears brown in color. These insects rely on human or animal blood for survival and go to great lengths to feed. Adult bed bugs are relatively flat, but after “eating,” the pests become red in color.
Bed bugs are unable to fly or jump, but they can crawl quickly across walls, floors, ceilings and other surfaces. Often times, these pests are mistaken for ticks, roaches or beetles, but they are not the same.
One of the trickiest parts of a bed bug infestation is how rapidly populations increase. Females can lay up to 500 eggs in their lifetime, so it’s crucial to handle bed bug infestations quickly.
How Do You Know if You Have Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs can enter your home or hospitality business many different ways. These pests travel via luggage, clothing, pets, used furniture and more. Discovering bed bugs can take time as these insects do not create nests. Instead, they tend to cluster together in mattresses, box springs, bed frames and along headboards.
Bed bugs are active at night when you are asleep, so you may feel them on you or start to notice itchy bites or welts that were not present the night before.
Other signs of a bed bug infestation include:
- Dark or brown excrement spots
- Blood stains on sheets
- Egg shells or shed skin
- Musty odors (common with extreme infestations)
Remove all bedding, and check for traces of bed bug excrement. You want to peel back all layers of your mattress and inspect the seams. Look through closets and other belongings that sit around your bed.
If you still struggle to locate the infestation, our professional bed bug exterminators are happy to assist.
If you suspect that you have a bed bug infestation, the best action to take besides contacting a New York bed bug specialist like Pestech for an inspection.

Bed Bug Control Process at Pestech
At Pestech, we want you to feel confident and comfortable in our bed bug control services.
It’s important to keep in mind that the larger the infestation, the more preparation is involved before our team arrives for an inspection. Bed bugs swarm to connecting rooms, apartments and floors, so there is no such thing as being too cautious.
Dark fecal spots, cast skins and smooshed bed bugs are signs of an infestation. If you find clusters (a lot of bites in one same area), they could be from bed bugs. Call today if you suspect bed bugs.
Pestech utilizes pesticides for bed bug control, as this method is superior to heating or cooling treatments. Formulated liquids, dusts or aerosols are applied in locations where we discover pests. We then move to common household rooms, crevices, chairs, sofas and other furniture where bed bugs can survive for months at a time without proper pest management.
Our team of professional bed bug exterminators look for and eliminate bed bugs from the following locations:
- Under beds
- Along baseboards
- Bed frames
- Bottom and sides of dressers
- Inside closets
- Door frames
- And more
We offer continuous pest control services that can keep bed bugs out of your home or business for good. We might also recommend mattress-safe encasements and guard liners to protect beds from bed bug life cycles, if necessary.
