What Every Orange County Resident Should Know About Bed Bug Control

typical bed in California home

Getting effective bed bug control is important if you want to remove infestations quickly. Unfortunately, bed bugs in Orange County are really disgusting, parasitic pests and can also be difficult to identify, prevent, and remove. Bed bugs are hitchhiking pests that will grab a ride on items like purses and luggage, and then once they invade, they spread quickly. Find out more about bed bugs in Orange County and how you can remove them in this guide.

Are Bed Bugs In Orange County Invisible?

One of the many misconceptions about bed bugs is that they are too small to see. Bed bugs are rather tiny pests for sure, but they aren’t invisible. When fully grown, they are about the size of an apple seed, but they sometimes are found congregating together, making them a bit easier to spot if you know what to look for. Adult bed bugs are reddish-brown, but the nymphs are cream or white. The bedbug eggs are extremely small, at only around the size of a pinhead.

Easy-To-Spot Signs Of Bed Bugs In Your Orange County Home

While being able to identify bed bugs by how they look is useful, it’s just as important to know other signs of bed bugs. These signs might show up earlier on in the infestation, so you should keep an eye out for:

  • Red bite marks that can show up anywhere that your skin is exposed during sleep. These bites usually show up in lines or zigzags.
  • Bloodstains that appear on your sheets or other bedding. These stains come from the bites on your own body that bed bugs inflict.
  • Brown smear marks around your bedding, furniture, and even along walls. These stains are actually from bed bug excrement.

Why Bed Bug Infestations Are So Easy To Spread In Orange County

You can find bed bugs in many places, not just homes. They don’t need to eat that often, and they can live in the seams of furniture as well as in holes in the walls. In fact, electrical outlets are some of their favorite places to hide during the day.

Bed bugs will hitch a ride on the items we carry with us, and since they can be found in businesses as well as other people’s houses, it can be difficult to prevent them. Also, bed bug infestations can start when you purchase secondhand items that are already infested.

Preventing bed bugs is difficult. You can check secondhand items for signs of bed bug activity, and you can avoid setting down bags when traveling and running errands; but, overall, don’t feel bad if you end up with bed bugs.
