Bed Bugs: True or False


Bed Bug Facts

When it comes to bed bugs, chances are you or someone you know has had an encounter with them. Beeline Pest Control compiled a list to help you know what is true and false about these pests:

True or False?

1. Bed bugs only bite in the dark.

False. Although bed bugs tend to be more active at night, keeping the room lit will not prevent them from biting you.

2. Only dirty and cluttered homes get bed bugs.

False. Bed bugs have been found in all conditions, dirty and clean.

3. Bed bugs are only found on the bed.

False. Even though they are called bed bugs, they are not only confined to the bed. They can be found in beds, on sofas, chairs, and areas near where people sleep or hang out.

4. Bed bugs cannot be seen.

False. Although bed bugs are small (young bed bugs equal to about the size of a poppy seed and adults are about the size of an apple seed), they can be seen.

5. Some people are not affected by bed bugs.

True. Not every person will have a reaction to bed bugs, they may be unaware that bed bugs are in their home until they actually see them.

6. If you have bed bugs, you need to get rid of infested clothing and furniture.

False. In most cases, clothing can be cleaned and furniture can be treated. The items should only be discarded if there are no treatments that can get rid of the bed bugs.

Reviews from Utah Residents

I have had Beeline spraying my house for several years now. Adam is the best to work with. Very knowledgeable, thorough, respectful of my home and friendly. If you have any bug issues, I would highly recommend calling.

Tanner is very efficient and pleasant to work with. He has treated our properties several times. We started using Beeline several years ago when we had an ant problem in our house. Since we started using Beeline, we don’t have that problem any longer.
