How to Inspect Your Home for Bed Bugs | Pest Control


“My name is Jeff White and i am the research
entomologist for bed bugs central and the host of bed bug TV bedbugscentral.com. I have no idea how i got under the bedbugs
and here i am 6 years later and having lot of fun working with bed bugs and at talking
to you about Pest control. With all the attention put to bed bugs, you
may want to conduct a quick inspection of your house to make sure that you don’t have
a problem. Catching bed bugs early on can save your lot
of money in the long run and so where do you look for bed bugs. One common misconception is that the bedbugs
are only associated with the bed. Yes it is true that bed bugs are called bed
bugs for reason they are gona be found in the bed. But they can spread to other things so there
are other areas you want to look. But lets start first with the bed and actually
the most common area you find bed bugs are the bottom of the box spring. But start with the mattress,look at the seems,
the edges,the ribbon that goes around the outside of the mattress. Those are the common areas you may find them
if they are there. But most importantly flip the box spring up. Look at the bottom of the box spring.look
at staple seems with the dust cover staples at the bottom of the box spring,possibly remove
that dust cover. Also look behind the plastic corner protector
that are on the bottom of the box spring,those are the most common areas you gona find bedbugs. The head board are also very common place. If you have a head board,take the head board
down,flip the headboard over and look at the back of that head board. That is an area that is very common for bedbug
to en fast,they gona sit in cracks and crevices. Remember, bedbugs are qualmish, long,oval,
flat and reddish brown. So you can’t see them pretty redly and you
are also gonna look for the faeces body,black spots that are left behind it. Bedbugs hanging out at one area and unfortunately
going to the bathroom but it is very easy to see. And so those are the two areas that you gona
look for primarily inside a bedroom. Now another area that you wana pay attention
to is the couch. What will people do when they are sleeping
in the bed and they are bit by something and they dont know what it is. They go and sleep on the couch, so bed bugs
just follow you at the couch. Looking in the top seems the edges of that
couch,look the couch over, look at the bottom of the couch and again you are looking for
the bugs themselves at the faeces body and if you look in all the beds and all the couches
and you don’t find anything, there is a good chance you probably don’t have any problem. If you want to take further steps you can
install interception devices which go under the legs of beds and couches and catch bugs
as they travel to and from the bed. They can help you identify a problem. There is also active monitors out there that
release attractive scent that bring bugs to them. If you want to purchase a monitor, go on-line,do
your research, see what works and what doesn’t and that will also help you identify infestation
early on because remember you want to find them as quick as possible because it make
control much cheaper in the long run.”

  1. ugghhhh……just looking at this vid makes it feel like something crawling on me……i need a shower

  2. What can I do about invisible bugs. I have been attacked since 2009 and I have no freaking idea what to do to get rid of all the bugs that bite me constantly!!! Please help me!!!! I have a lot of bumps or insect bites from insects that I don't even see and what's worse they get to my private body parts. PLEASE HELP ME! Anyone???

  3. @aaronman201 thats a really good idea. But isnt expensive? Btw, my mom doesn't believe me and I already showed her my bumps and I even told the doctor but they don't believe in such invisible insects. I hate them! As if I wanted to be attacked. They even got in my mouth and just pretty much everywhere in my body and I cannot handle this anymore. I cannot even sleep when these bugs bite me over and over again! It's really weird. They're invisible. I feel hopeless:(

  4. @aaronman201 thanks 4 that advice. But I always sleep beside my mom and she doesn't feel being attacked. I always get attacked since my family moved to the apartment where my mother and my whole family knew roaches were living there. Of course they didn't know at 1st but as we stayed there longer, we saw a bunch of roaches and then the other day my mom bought a couch for me to sleep in and the next days I felt like there were invisible bugs that crawled me. In our new place, they still bite me:(

  5. @aaronman201 well, repellant like you mean "Off spray" doesn't work either because I sprayed it on my skin as well as my clothes but they really don't seem to work. Thanks for trying to help me. But what should I do? Should I just let these INVISIBLE BUGS attack me even though it makes me feel really uncomfortable?

  6. Be very careful dealing with bed bugs, they can be many more places than just your bed. Servall Pest Control can help.

  7. تعالو تشوفو البق فالسعودية زي حبة الشعير ههههه ههههه بيجي من مصر فرعوني ومن باكستان جانكيز خان

  8. I found a bed bug in my bed it was one i pied it up and threw it in trash,and I put all my linen in trash.hopefully there is just one and that's it.but should I be scared like I am now???
