How Does Paramount Exterminating Deal With Bed Bugs?

It’s a simple 3-Step process…

  1. Identification – First, an exterminator will thoroughly inspect your residence or business to find signs of bed bugs. Typically, we start with the bedroom and mattress and move to other areas where bed bugs are likely to congregate. If you have a sample insect, even better!
  2. Treatment Plan – Once we establish the infestation, we find the right treatment option for your budget and needs. Our goal is to provide the least possible inconvenience to you and your family with our non-invasive bed bug treatments.
  3. Treatment and Follow Up – Typical treatment time is relatively quick—usually only a few hours long. We always aim for 100% eradication, but bed bugs can sometimes be difficult to eliminate with one treatment. We recommend several treatments in two-week intervals with thorough re-inspections to ensure your pest problem is resolved.

  • Bed bug lives in small crevices around your home, everywhere from box springs to areas underneath loose wallpaper.
  • Bed bugs have the potential to spread quickly from room to room because their main mode of travel is by climbing onto people’s clothing or belongings.
  • Since they feed on blood, they thrive equally well in clean areas as well as dirty ones—as long as there are people to feed on, bed bugs can survive and thrive.
  • Bed bugs rarely attack pets as they are not bio-engineered to move through fur. Unless an infestation is very large and there is food competition, bed bugs will generally only bite humans.)

Adult bed bugs are reddish-brown and 1/4 inch long with flat, oval bodies. They often feed at night. Their bites can cause itchy sores or swelling in some people, but other people have no reaction to being bitten. While bed bug bites can be annoying, they luckily aren’t known to transmit any diseases.

Nymphs (developing bed bugs) can survive without feeding for months, while adult bed bugs can survive for over a year. This is one reason why thorough exterminations and evaluations are necessary: bed bugs can hide in closets or other spaces undetected, reemerging to feed up to a year later.

Bed Bug Facts

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are notorious insects that are well known for their painful and itchy bites. They have been around for a very long time, but it’s only in the last decade that bed bugs have made resurgence in the United States. They are one of the most talked about pest in the last several years and for good reason. They can infest entire home and apartment complexes creating a nightmare for homeowners, tenants, and business owners.

What do bed bugs look like?

Adult Bed Bugs: Adult bed bugs are about ¼” in length, with an oval shape and reddish brown appearance. They have 6 legs unlike ticks or mites and have ridges that run horizontally along the thorax (back of body).Bed bugs bodies are almost flat, allowing them to get into very small spaces and hide. The antennae of a bed bug is about half the length of their body and point forward rather than running along the side of their body. This helps distinguish them from small roaches and other pests. Adult bed bugs are visible to the naked eye, but they are often hiding and generally come out at night when you are sleeping, making them much harder to find then normal pests. Bed bugs can change in color slightly, from a light orange to a deep red or black, depending on if they have had a meal recently. Bed bugs that have recently taken a blood meal will look darker in color than ones that have not. They will also look engorged after feeding, somewhat like a mosquito or tick.

What do bed bug babies (Nymphs) look like?

Nymphs (bed bug babies): Bed bug nymphs are very tiny, and grow larger with eat blood meal. When they are first hatched, nymphs are clear or light tan in color, and begin to turn orange/red as they begin to feed. Nymphs look like a smaller, lighter colored version of adults and can become adults in as little as five weeks with an available food source and proper temperature conditions.

What do bed bug eggs look like?

Bed bug eggs: Bed bug eggs are difficult to see and even harder to find. They are smaller than a grain of rice and have a white or transparent look. Bed bug eggs are also sticky, allowing them to be placed in hard to reach places and often unlooked areas like the tufts of a mattress, box spring, or headboard.
