Bed Bugs in Arkansas - Bedbug Exterminator in AR

Although the subject of a cute bedtime remark, bed bugs are no laughing matter. Easy to acquire but difficult to get rid of, they pose a special challenge for travelers, who may carry the bloodsuckers from hotel to home.

Bed bugs have been a problem for thousands of years. For a while, bed bugs in Arkansas were almost unheard of, thanks to the use of DDT. Unfortunately, DDT had to be banned because of its toxicity. Now, bed bugs are on the rise, helped along by the ease and frequency of international travel.

Bed bugs hide in beds during the day. Small, flat, reddish-brown insects, they can grow to be about 5 to 7 mm in length. Their color intensifies after a meal. They are parasites who feed on the blood of their hosts.

How do you know if you have bed bugs in Arkansas?

Bed bug bites are red, and usually have a spot in the middle that is darker than the rest. They are very itchy and tend to come in clusters or lines. They are usually found on the face, neck, hands and arms. If you suspect a bed bug infestation, you will need to check your bedding for signs of bed bugs.

Some of these signs include small black spots which are actually bed bug fecal matter, white egg sacs, shed skins, live bed bugs, and an odor that is sometimes described as sweet and musty.

You will want to check in all the cracks and crevices around the mattress, as this is where bed bugs tend to congregate. Other places to check include nightstands, the wall next to the mattress, the headboard, under the mattress and even in clothing.

Prevention of Bed Bugs

The best way to stop a bed bug infestation is to prevent it from happening in the first place. When travelling, check the bed thoroughly before even placing your luggage down. Pull back all the sheets and check the mattress for any of the signs of a bed bug infestation. Check reviews online of the hotel where you are planning to stay to see if they have had any recent infestations. If they have, book somewhere else.
