While bedbugs may seem like a nuisance, they can be harmful to you or those around you. Bedbugs are classified under Cimicidae, a family of insects that exclusively feed on blood. They require blood to develop and reproduce. Plus, bedbugs can be hard to identify as they are masters of hiding and are primarily active at night. Luckily, at Las Vegas Pest Control, we have effective bedbug treatments to quickly and effectively remove bedbugs from your property.

Identifying Bedbugs 

The first step in identifying and controlling bedbugs is being aware of what to look for. Several insects can resemble bedbugs, so an accurate identification is a crucial first step toward regaining control. You can differentiate bedbugs by the following physical characteristics:

  • Flat, oval, rusty-brown body
  • Prominent antennae
  • Small hairs on the abdomen that create a striped appearance


Signs of Bedbug Infestation 

Among the species in this family of insects, bedbugs are the most adapted to living with humans. They enter a home using furniture, clothing, luggage, and other exposed items. If you wake up with itchy red bumps all over your skin, there’s a good chance you have bedbug bites. Another sign to watch out for is blood stains on your bedding.

Behavior of Bedbugs

During the day, signs of infestation are often difficult to find. Even the largest bedbug Las Vegas has ever seen will have an easy time remaining hidden in broad daylight. Thankfully, it is possible to take notice of this kind of pest infestation before it spreads out of control. If you see any sign of bedbugs, it’s important to act fast. If left untreated, they will increase rapidly and become difficult to eliminate.

Bedbugs are nocturnal insects, and their lifestyle is perplexing. Before occupants of an infested structure discover the first bedbug, the bugs have likely been there for weeks or months. They reside around bed frames, box springs, headboards, clothing, mattresses, and linens.
