Bed bug inspection

Bed bugs are a real threat to properties, as they are quite sneaky and can spread in a building, creating anxiety and potentially damaging your brand image. Also, when a bed bug problem exists for a while without action being taken, it is harder to control, so it’s crucial to detect it as soon as possible. If you have seen signs that suggest bed bugs could be present, you should get in touch with a pest control company for an inspection at the first chance you get.

Ehrlich conducts thorough inspections that will assess whether bed bug activity is present, we have a great depth of expertise in bed bug control, and we can tailor our treatments toward your needs. Although you may think you can tell whether these pests are inside by yourself, you may miss hiding places or signals that they are there. The Ehrlich inspector who visits your home or business will be trained in bed bug inspection, so you can be confident that any problems will be caught.

How to inspect for bed bugs

When Ehrlich does bed bug inspections, we look for some signs that indicate they could be present. Red flags include:

  • Fecal spots - on a soft surface they can look like marks from a fabric marker and on a hard surface they can look like a black bump.
  • Shed bug bug skins - bed bugs shed their skin multiple times during their lives.
  • The actual bed bugs - learn more about bed bug identification here.
  • Blood spots on pillowcases and sheets - this comes from human blood.

You should look for these signs as well around your property so you can tell whether you need to contact a pest control professional. Also, if you’re traveling and notice any bed bug warning signs at a hotel or other location, speak up about the issue.
