Why Are Bed Bugs Hard to Get Rid Of?

Bed bugs are incredibly resilient pests. They can survive in a wide range of temperatures and environments, reproduce quickly, and are resistant to many pesticides. They can even survive for several months without food!

Yes, bed bugs can seem impossible to eliminate, especially without the help of a seasoned exterminator. DIY almost methods will never catch them all, which means they'll breed—and they'll be back.

The professional exterminators at Croach® have extensive training and experience in dealing with bed bug infestations. They understand the behavior of bed bugs, know where to look for them, and are skilled at implementing effective control measures.

How to Check for Bed Bugs in Your Portland or Beaverton Area Home

An adult bedbug measures only 5 millimeters long - about the size of an eraser on a pencil or an apple seed. You can see them with the naked eye, but these pests conceal themselves in the light of day.

Bedbugs hide in dark crevices near where people sleep such as under couch cushions, the seams of a reclining chair, or beneath the mattress on your bed. As the population grows, they will spread 10 to 20 feet away to hide in nightstands, end tables, and baseboards.

It is easier to look for the signs of infestation:

  • Blood stains on your sheets, pillowcase, pajamas, mattress, bed frame, or walls.
  • Bed bug feces that appears as dark brown spots. Also look for egg casings and shed skin casings in seams, cracks, and crevices.
  • Itchy red bumps on your skin (bed bug bites) or frequent morning fatigue

How to Stop Them from Entering Your House

Follow these tips from the Oregon Health Authority to avoid a bed bug infestation in the first place, and to maintain a pest-free environment after we eradicate them.

  • Vacuum frequently to include all sides of your mattress, bed frame, and headboard. Use a crevice tool to reach cracks in baseboards and furniture, and the deep seams of couches and chairs.
  • Don’t place or store luggage, tote bags or purses, or other travel items in rooms or near areas where you sleep.
  • Clean regularly with soap and water, remove clutter, and watch for the signs, including feces and skin casings. The sooner you notice them, the easier it will be to destroy them.

Croach Pest Control Reviews - Stars 150

Everything Right, Start to Finish!

Andrew did everything just right, start to finish. He phoned on the way to let me know his arrival time. He was attentive to the special needs of my property (extensive shade garden, many delicate shrubs around the perimeter) and my request to watch for signs of wasps. Andrew is personable, and easy to talk to. I look forward to seeing him again for my next quarterly service. Thank you!

Bed Bug FAQs

Beaverton and Portland homeowners have many questions about bed bugs. Here are a few of the most common questions our technicians are asked.

How Do Bed Bugs Get into Our Homes?

Bed bugs are opportunistic parasites that stow away on our belongings (luggage, back packs, and furniture). That's how we unintentionally bring bed bugs into our homes and businesses from other locations.

You can search for reports of them at area hotels on the or websites.

There are some simple steps you can take to reduce the risk of bringing them into our homes.

What Do Bed Bugs Eat?

Bed bugs feed on the blood of humans. That means, you and your family! They creep out of their hiding places at night. They are attracted to your body's heat, and the C02 you exhale.

Why Does Bed Bug Treatment Often Fail?

DIY bed bug treatments almost never work. At best, they'll alleviate problems briefly but never permanently. Note some of the most common reasons why:

  1. Bed bugs are resistant to most OTC insecticides. 
  2. OTC insecticides don't kill eggs, which means they can only ever temporarily alleviate bed bug problems.
  3. Spraying yourself with bug repellant before bed can make you sick.
  4. Using outdoor repellants indoors could poison you, your pets, or your family members.
  5. Bombs and foggers force bugs into hiding, making them even more challenging to eliminate.

The only way to eliminate pests for good is to disrupt their breeding cycles so they can't return. Your customized pest control plan from Croach® will get the job done right.
