Protect your business from the negative impact of bed bugs with professional pest control solutions from the experts at Clark’s Termite & Pest Control. 


What Are Bed Bugs?


Bed bugs are small, parasitic insects that feed on blood and are active mainly at night. The adults are brown and grow to about ¼ inch. They have small heads and ridged shells. Their body shape is flat and oval, closely resembling an apple seed. After feeding, bed bugs swell up and turn red. Younger insects, called nymphs, are smaller and either translucent or yellow. The eggs are tiny, about 1 millimeter long, and white. 


Why Are Bed Bugs a Problem?


The presence or threat of bed bugs can cause stress and poor sleep. While not considered dangerous, bed bug bites are itchy and uncomfortable. Some people are allergic and get severe itching, hives, or blisters if bitten. Anyone who experiences a serious reaction should see a doctor for treatment.
Hospitality industry bed bug control is essential to keep your business protected and your good reputation intact. Having an infestation often leads to poor guest experiences, high numbers of complaints and negative reviews. 


How to Spot the Signs of Bed Bugs


Although small and good at hiding, bed bugs leave behind some signs that notify you of their presence. The most common to watch out for include:

  • Seeing actual bugs
  • Blood spots on bedding
  • Small, itchy bites on the skin, often in clusters
  • Black dots of feces
  • Shed skins that resemble live bugs
  • A musty, sweet odor

Learning to identify the early signs of bed bugs is an important part of hotel bed bug control, but preventing an infestation is always preferable to treating one. These pests like to hide out in the seams of mattresses and bedding, as well as any nearby crevices in the bed frame, carpets, baseboards, furniture, and more. They often cling to clothing or invade suitcases, catching a ride to the next spot to settle in and spread. You can help prevent bed bugs by carefully inspecting bedding and furniture, ensuring all areas get vacuumed and cleaned regularly, and repairing cracks in the walls and floors.
