How Do Bed Bugs Get into Our Homes?

We pick up bed bugs as we journey through our lives, and introduce them into our homes and businesses. Bed bugs are literal couch surfers that travel on our belongings, like back packs, hand bags, and used furniture. There are preventive measures you can take to reduce the risk of bringing them into our homes. But if you suspect bed bugs, call a professional bed bug exterminator right away.

How Can You Get Rid of Bed Bugs?

Effective bed bug exterminatior treatment plans often incorporate IPM strategies. IPM (Integrated Pest Management) is a long-term approach to pest control with a success rate that far exceeds do-it-yourself chemical extermination.

Note, many insecticidal chemicals are only available to trained professional pest control technicians.

Exterminating Bed Bugs with IPM

IPM combines several professional pest control approaches, such as:

How Croach® Pest Control Interrupts the Life Cycle of Bed Bugs

It takes knowledge and experience to accomplish bed bug exterminator success. Your technician needs to know when to apply each kind of treatment in order to eradicate bed bugs, once and for all.

As an example, insect growth regulators prevent the nymph from maturing, which halts the reproductive cycle. Pyrethrins are effective at flushing out bugs and killing them. Desiccants work on the adult bug by drying out its exoskeleton. Certain cold-pressed oils can wipe out both nymphs and eggs.

Identifying Bed Bugs

The first step is to identify the pest. You may suspect bed bugs if you notice the following signs:

  • Actual bed bugs
  • Exoskeletal debris after molting
  • Rusty-colored blood spots from fecal droppings
  • Eggs which look like translucent rice grains
  • A sweet, musty odor
  • Bites on areas of the body exposed during sleep

Your Croach® bed bug exterminator will confirm the identify of the pest, and recognize the life stage it's in.

Why Does Bed Bug Treatment Often Fail?

Your first instinct may be to buy an over-the-counter insecticidal spray or a fogger. Those products might kill some bed bugs. But they have to make contact with the bugs' bodies. Bed bugs are tiny, and they're experts at hiding. The DIY products can’t kill bugs that are out-of-sight or prevent eggs from hatching.

Bed Bug Breeding Habits

Croach® technicians win the battle against bed bugs by disrupting their breeding cycle. Our treatment methods kill eggs, nymphs, and adults alike.

Bed bugs can lay and hatch thousands of eggs at a time. That's why addressing any infestation requires addressing a bed bug problem at every stage of life and why we recommend multiple treatments to exterminate every pest completely.

Bed Bugs in Utah

Bed bugs were common in the United States up until the 1940s when DDT was introduced into pesticides. DDT indeed killed pests of all kind, and inexpensively to boot. But in 1972 its use was halted by the US government due to a number of serious consequences on the environment and humans. Additionally, insects like bed bugs and cockroaches were developing resistance to DDT, making it a less effective treatment option.

Utah State University notes 'Pesticide use alone is not recommended'.

Bed Bug FAQs

Salt Lake City homeowners have many questions about bed bugs. Here are a few of the most common questions we get from Utah customers.

What Do Bed Bugs Eat?

Bed bugs feed on the blood of humans like mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. They come out at night and are drawn to your body heat and the carbon dioxide you exhale.

Are Bed Bugs Dangerous?

Bed bug bites aren't hazardous in the sense of a black widow spider bite with venom or a tick bite that transmits a disease. But you can experience complications if you're allergic or you scratch excessively.

Can Bed Bugs Live in a Car?

If you inadvertently load an infested piece of luggage, a backpack, clothing, or furniture into your car, some of the little bloodsuckers might stay behind in your vehicle. Once in your car, they can live a long time without food.

However, bed bugs are very sensitive to heat and cold. Their preferred temperature is between 70-80 degrees. That's why they snuggle in our most comfortable personal sanctuaries: our beds.

The extreme heat and cold fluctuations we get throughout the year are enough to kill a bed bug that happens to get inside your car. Winters in Salt Lake City mean a typical average of 25-27 degrees, whereas Utah's summer heat is always a scorcher. Bed bugs hiding in your car won't survive these extreme weather variations. In the Salt Lake Valley, only a car kept in a climate-controlled environment would be likely to suffer a bed bug infestation.
