  • Identifying Bedbug Bites

    Bites are commonly found on exposed skin and there will usually be multiple bites in a concentrated area. Everyone's immune system reacts differently and Bedbug bites are no different. One household member may have many bite marks where other family members may have little or no indication of bites. Often the bites will be red, small, flat or raised spots which will become inflamed if scratched.

  • What To Do

    Do NOT Panic!
    Don’t throwout beds or furniture as you my end up spreading the Bedbugs throughout your home.
    Resist the urge to use consumer grade Bedbug sprays and bombs as these weak poisons can agitate the Bedbugs and cause them to disperse into other areas of your home
