Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs migrate into our homes from infested furniture, luggage, and your belongings after staying in bed bug infested lodging or other areas where bed bugs live. Bed Bugs can and will infest any home, hotel, or any other structure if given a chance.

Bed Bugs will feed on human blood as well as pets or other animals. Scratching the bites can cause infections due to the transfer of bacteria. They will not cause any damage to the structure of your home, but they will cause discomfort and lead to potential infection to the people and pets in your home. Curious if you have Bed Bugs? Call Genesis Termite and Pest Control and schedule an inspection of your home today. We will look for signs of infestation on your bed sheets, mattress, furniture, and other areas of your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do Bed Bugs come from?

Bed Bugs come into the home from infested furniture that you have just purchased or have been given. They can come from your luggage after you have stayed in an infested hotel or lodging. Bed Bugs will tag along and make themselves right at home in your home.

If I have Bed Bugs, does that mean I have a dirty house?

Not necessarily, although good housekeeping will help in the process of ridding the home of the infestation, Bed Bugs will infest homes from both sides of the spectrum. Remember, they are usually brought in from an outside source.

Will I get sick or contract a disease from Bed Bugs?

Although Bed Bugs will feed on human blood, they have not been known to transmit any diseases. Just like any bite, scratch, or skin irritation, it is not wise to scratch due to bacteria that might set in and cause an infection. Some people may become sensitive to Bed Bug saliva if bitten often. If you see any signs of Bed Bugs or just want to know if you have them, call to have your house inspected today.

What can I do to help keep from having a Bed Bug infestation?

Whenever you travel and stay in lodging, ask the front desk if they have had infestation with Bed Bugs. Check the bedding and furniture in the room. Try and keep your luggage off the ground and away from corners. When you arrive back to your home, put your luggage in a black plastic bag and set them outside in the sun for a few days. Wash all your clothes in hot water, or at least put them in a dryer at high heat for 30-40 minutes. Also, do not hesitate in calling for an inspection for Bed Bugs.

How can I identify Bed Bug bites?

Bed Bugs are irregular feeders and may move to a new spot and feed again. A pattern of 3 bites in a row is a known characteristic of bed bug bites. Also look for Blood spotting on bed sheets. If you have all this evidence at the same time, you may have Bed Bugs.
