How to Identify a Bed Bug Bite

Do you have bites that you think could have been caused by bed bugs?  Below we describe what the bites look like, and some of the characteristics of Brooklyn bed bug bites.  Bed bug bites are not characterized by any distinguishing look in its swelling.

Those with bed bug bites have a broad range of reactions, from severe swelling on some, to no signs of being bitten on others that is why we avoiding diagnosing a bed bug problem based on bites that exist. One telltale sign of bed bug bites is the bug tends to bite in multiples so in some bed bug bite cases you will see the bite marks in a row going down an arm.

How do Bed Bugs Bite?

Bed bugs bite by first injecting a secretion that numbs the area before it feeds. Bed bugs tend to proximate themselves along vein lines but have been known to feed elsewhere on the body for a blood supply.  They will usually come out at night to feed, and go back into hiding before you wake up in the morning.

Our quarterly monitoring service gives you peace of mind knowing that a potential problem will be taken care of before it even begins. We use state-of-the-art inspection techniques that reveal even the tiniest clues as to bed bug whereabouts. The treatments provided by Flash Exterminating also limit the use of excessive chemicals and keep your guests safe and comfortable.

The passive monitors we install help provide preventative measures for possible bed bug infestations. Passive monitors are chemical free and require no maintenance. Monitors provide an ideal hiding spot for bed bugs. As bed bugs crawl around on and inside the monitors, they leave behind signs of life, such as fecal matter and cast skins. These indications help us know which areas are more problematic and require more treatment.

We can also install Climb Up Insect Interceptors at the bottom of each bed frame, creating a barrier between the floor and the bed. This means that bed bugs on the floor can’t climb into the bed, and bed bugs on the bed can’t climb down the frame and spread along the floor.
