What are bed bugs?
Bed bugs are small, flat, oval, brownish parasitic insects that live on the blood of humans or animals. They become reddish in color after feeding and are wingless, but can move quickly. They range in size from 1mm to 7mm. Newborns, called hatchlings or nymphs, are about the size of a poppy seed. Adults can grow up to ¼ of an inch long. The adults are visible to humans. They can also live for months without feeding.
Where are bed bugs found?
Although bed bugs are traditionally thought to be a problem in developing counties, they are found throughout all of the United States. These critters have been found in five-star hotels and resorts and their presence is not determined by the cleanliness of the living conditions where they are found.
Bed Bugs are often found in or near the bedroom or where people sleep. Indianapolis homes, apartments, shelters, hotels, trains, buses and dorm rooms are very common places that bed bugs like to call their home. They tend to hide in parts of your bed, such as mattresses, box springs and folded areas. They can also hide themselves all around your home behind baseboards, upholstery, wallpaper, picture frames, switch plates, and in your furniture. Once you have seen or have bites from these critters it is important to have an Indianapolis Bed Bugs Treatment performed as soon as possible. They can travel a large area quickly. Although they tend to live within 8 feet of the places we sleep, they can travel 100 feet in one night.

How did I get bed bugs?
Indianapolis Bed Bugs can hide very well in your homes or elsewhere. With their flat bodies they can fit into very small spaces and can live for months without feeding. Therefore, bed bugs are transported when traveling. They can be found in hotel rooms, bedrooms, living rooms, and virtually anywhere people sleep. They will cling to your luggage, bags, clothing and furniture. If you are traveling try not to leave your bags on the ground. Place them in the closet on a shelf. Perform a thorough room inspection when you do arrive to stay. When checking the bed, search the front and around the piping of the mattress. Avoid placing your items on the floor; if possible place them in the closet or shelves in the room. When buying used furniture, inspect this before purchasing.
