Bed Bug Control in Baltimore, MD

Does the phrase “good night, don’t let the bed bugs bite” bear a literal meaning in your household? If so, you may need a bit of help getting rid of these creepy creatures.

Although bed bugs were almost eradicated a while back, they keep getting reintroduced due to frequent travel and other factors. Contrary to the popular belief, you can’t get infected by bed bugs. That said, bed bugs are a nuisance and their bites may cause a variety of skin reactions from red, itchy welts to inflammation and severe allergic responses. Besides the discomfort caused by the bites, the thought of something feeding on you in your sleep makes it difficult to rest at night.

They’re annoying, and can reproduce 3 or 4 generations of offspring’s in one year—so immediate action is necessary to eliminate the problem.

If you think you have beg bugs infesting your Maryland home, contact the bug experts at Brody Brothers Pest Control. We offer a successful approach to pest extermination and can rid your home of bed bugs as soon as possible!

How to Know If You Have Bed Bugs in Your Maryland Home

Bed bugs are small flat insects, reddish-brown in color, that can infest your home and cause annoyances like bug bites, rashes, and other health related issues. Light infestations of bed bugs can be difficult to detect; most people don’t realize they have bed bugs until the population is about 100 or more.

Two of the most common signs that you have bed bugs are:

  • Bites. About 30% percent of people don’t have any reaction to the bites and don’t feel them at all. If you are one of the 70%, you may notice several inflamed bumps, often in a row, appear overnight. They are similar to mosquito bites, but if you are getting bitten consistently it’s likely bed bugs.
  • Speckling of live bugs. Look at the seams of the mattress for tiny bugs that may look like black pepper glued to the surface. Don’t try to remove the bugs yourself—call in the professionals!

How Do Bed Bugs Get into Your Baltimore Home?

If you’re wondering how they get into your home, the answer is simple: you bring them in. Bed bugs, as the name suggests, primarily make their home in beds or wherever people sleep. They live in sheets, mattresses, baseboards, and furniture. Bed bugs are primarily nocturnal but can also be active during the day, travelling as far as 20-feet from their hiding spots.

Due to their small size, fast movement, and nocturnal lifestyle, bed bugs can easily crawl into your luggage when you travel or ride along on your friend’s PJs when they come for a sleepover.

Here are some of the common places where you can pick up bed bugs:

  • Hotel and hostels
  • College dorms
  • Public transportation
  • Movie theaters
  • Retail store dressing rooms
  • Nursing homes and hospitals
  • Used furniture stores
  • And more!

Our Bed Bug Services in Baltimore, MD

Bed bugs don’t discriminate by income, tidiness or geography. They are found in all 50 states in sanitary, unsanitary, low and high income households. If you leave your home or invite people over, there is an opportunity for bed bugs to get in.

That being said, if you see a bed bug in your home or you notice suspicious bites that appeared overnight, you should avoid sleeping in a different room, as this can cause bed bugs to spread further in a search for a new food source. Then, call Brody Brothers Pest Control immediately. We have an Integrated Pest Management approach to bed bug control. Our process looks a bit like this:

  • Preparation. First, we remove and clutter from the area and launder all washable items on high heat for at least 30 minutes.
  • Vacuuming. Next, we will identify the location of the live bugs and vacuum as many as possible.
  • Treatment. We will treat all cracks and crevices with pesticides to ensure the best extermination is attainable.
  • Sealing. We will place your mattress and box spring in a bed bug-proof encasement.
  • Repeat. In order to get bed bugs under control, we recommend two treatments.
  • Secure efforts. To give you the best results, we treat with long-lasting products deep within the walls to ensure no return.
