If you think you have bed bugs, it’s important to call a professional bed bug exterminator before the problem becomes worse. DIY treatments can be effective for prevention or even small infestations, but it can be difficult to determine exactly when a bed bug infestation requires professional help. Bottom line, it’s time to enlist professional help when you notice the signs of a bed bug problem or see the bugs themselves.
The signs of a bed bug problem
Even though bed bugs are minuscule, they can still be spotted if you know where to look. If you have a large enough population, they will often gather together in their preferred hiding spot. If you notice a large number of bed bugs in a single area, it’s time to call a professional. Bed bugs don’t have nests or colonies, so an increase in visible population means the infestation has gotten much worse. Additionally, when bed bugs move to new places—windowsills, outlets, cracks in your headboard, etc.—it’s likely you have a bigger problem than you realize.

The appearance of bed bug bites
One of the main signs of a bed bug problem is seeing bites on your skin. While their bites typically result in small red bumps with few symptoms, serious cases can result in rashes, hives, and welts. These bites often appear in a zigzag pattern on areas of the skin that are exposed during the night. If you think you have bed bugs due to the bites that have appeared on your skin, it’s time to call a company with experience in bed bug extermination.
