Lynn Pest Control Services
Proudly Serving Our Massachusetts Neighbors Since 1979
Lynn is cold in the winter and warm in the summer. The climate is somewhat humid during most of the year since there is rain in the summer and snow in the winter. Residents see a fair share of pests ranging from raccoons to spiders. Most pests that thrive off of the moisture, greenery, and other bugs present in the summer move indoors during the winter. One pest that is problematic regardless of the season is a bed bug.
For help with bed bug infestations and more, reach out to us at (781) 679-1669 or through our online contact form. We’ll get you started with a complimentary inspection and estimate!
Where To Find Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are distinguishable by their tiny flat bodies, which are brown and round to slightly elongated. They tend to be more round after they have had a blood meal. They range in size between a speck of dirt and a small pebble depending on their life stage. Bed bugs prefer to hide in dark places where they can wait for sleeping prey. You may find them:
- Under your sheets or mattress
- Under furniture cushions
- In the carpet
You must be quick about searching since they shy away from light and movement.
A common sign of these pests is a dirt-like residue that is a reddish-brown color. This is their excrement. You may see exoskeletons that have been shed. Also, some people report a musky scent where an infestation is located. Another indicator of a bed bug problem is their bites. If you notice red itchy bumps on your skin, they may be from bed bugs. There are usually multiple bumps, and they often appear in a straight line.
How Bed Bugs Spread
Bed bugs spread easily on clothing and in luggage or purses. You may pick them up from a hotel, your workplace, or even a friend's home. Your child could bring them home from school if there are communal coat and bag racks. Bed bugs can also crawl between different lockers, which means that you can pick them up from the gym as well. The possibilities are endless. When bed bugs breed in your home, their population grows rapidly.
