Bed Bug Control:
Many of us have heard or repeated the phrase, “Good night! Don’t let the bed bugs bite.” Whether or not you've ever encountered them before, bed bug infestations are an increasing problem all over the country, including in Colorado.
The common beg bug is a nocturnal parasitic pest that feeds on blood, causes itchy bites and generally irritates their human hosts, yet they are not known to transmit or spread disease. Despite this, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) all consider bed bugs a public health pest.
Experts believe the recent increase in bed bugs in the United States may be due to more travel, lack of knowledge about preventing infestations, increased resistance of bed bugs to pesticides, and ineffective pestilence management practices. The best way to inhibit them is to start by getting accurate information on both prevention and regimentation. There is no chemical quick-fix but there are effective strategies to bed bug regulation involving both non-chemical and chemical methods.
Bed bugs are hard to see by humans and can be hard to find and identify, given their small size and their habit of staying hidden. It helps to know what they look like (see above photo), since the various life stages have different forms. Moreover, it’s helpful to know the symptoms of having been bit by bed bugs. These include:
Signs of a bed bug infestation in your home can be tiny bloodstains (on your sheets, carpets, mattresses, or couches), dark spots of excrement in dark corners and crevices, loose wall paper, and black fecal matter in and around outlet covers, edge of carpet, or corners, as well as a strong, unpleasant, musty odor like that of a wet towel.
Hitchhikers by nature, bed bugs make their way from place to place on people, bags and other personal belongings as well as possessions, and they remain dormant for extended periods of time when there isn’t a blood source available, which can make it even harder to get rid of them once they move to a place. Additionally, it only take 6-10 days for bed bugs eggs to hatch. Within minutes of hatching the newly emerged bed bug nymphs look for their first blood.
If you are having problems with these insects in your home, simply throwing away your mattress will not resolve the problem. Though they are called bed bugs, they will hide out in other areas of a home or business. Also, using insecticides on your own can be dangerous and ineffective and may even spread the infestation. For comprehensive and safe bed bug extermination, seek out the help of a pest eradicating company that is experienced and knowledgeable in the inspection, identification, and elimination of bedbug, as Colorado’s Department of Public Health and Environment recommends.
To prevent a bed bug onslaught, be vigilant and try these precautions and steps:

When do I need the help of a professional bed bug exterminator?
If you have seen any signs of bed bugs in your home or commercial property (covered in the section on the left of this page), it is highly recommended you call for professional help right away as they are very difficult to get rid of completely, especially if you don't have the know-how to take on this type of extermination project. Trying to get rid of bed bugs on your own can be risky and end up costing you more time and money than you ever wanted to spend. Professionals have access to tools and techniques that are the most effective so you will be rid of beg bugs sooner than if you try to annihilate them on your own.
Actually, some home remedies or purchased bed bug elimination products can actually make the problem worse. If you tried to get rid of them on your own and used a bed bug fogger (or bug bomb), you just made your situation much worse and should call for expert help right away.
