Bed Bugs

We don’t investigate bedbug infestations because they're considered a nuisance and not a health problem. 

Bed bugs are tiny blood-sucking insects that feed on humans, pets, chickens, and other animals. Bed bugs like to hide in very discreet, dark, small spaces. They feed at night or in the dark. Although not painful at first, bed bug bites usually become red, swollen and itchy. Reactions to bites range from mild to severe. Bed bugs are not known to spread any diseases.

Recommendations for addressing a bedbug infestation:

  • Contact a licensed pest control operator who's experienced and knowledgeable in the inspection, identification and extermination of bedbugs.
  • Using insecticides on your own can be dangerous and ineffective, and may even spread the infestation.
