Florida & Orlando Bed Bug Inspection

A thorough inspection of the premises to locate bed bugs and their hiding spots is necessary so that cleaning efforts can be focused in the areas of infestation. 

Inspection efforts should concentrate on the mattress, box springs, and bed frame, as well as crack and crevices that the bed bugs may hide in during the day or when digesting a blood meal. 

The latter sites include window and door frames, floor cracks, carpet tack boards, baseboards, electrical boxes, furniture, pictures, wall hangings, drapery pleats, loosened wallpaper, cracks in plaster, and ceiling moldings. Determine whether birds or rodents are nesting on or near the house.


In hotels, apartments, and other multiple-type dwellings, it is advisable to also inspect adjoining units since bed bugs can travel long distances.

Why are Bed Bugs Difficult to Control?

Bed Bugs are difficult to control because they often go undetected until a severe infestation has occurred. Because bed bugs are nocturnal only coming out at night, infestations can be difficult to detect. During the day, they hide in the tightest of spaces including cracks and crevices in the walls, bed frames, behind baseboards and mattress seams. Another reason that bed bugs often go undetected is because they can hibernate for months at a time going dormant and resurfacing months later. 

They are extremely resilient and can survive up to 1 year without food. Unreported bites give a false sense of control.

 
Another reason that bed bugs are hard to control is that they travel easily. They hitch a ride on backpacks, luggage and clothing from one place to the next. Once inside a home, bed bugs can travel through wall voids spreading the infestation from room to room making control extremely difficult.
 
They also reproduce rapidly. A female lays 10-50 eggs at a time laying up to 500 in her lifetime.

Bed bugs are very difficult to treat, and effective treatment requires a pest control professional. Heron’s bed bug expert has been treating bed bugs for over 15 years and has treated over 1,000 bed bug cases in the U.S.

Much of the time, a bed bug infestation is only suspected when bites appear on a person. Oftentimes, the bites are misidentified, thus allowing infestations to go unnoticed, which gives the bed bugs time to spread to other areas of the house. 

When cleaning, changing bedding, or staying away from home, look for:
  • Dark spots (about this size: •) which are bed bug excrement and may bleed on the fabric like a marker would.
  • Eggs and eggshells, which are tiny (about 1mm) and white
  • Skins that nymphs shed as they grow larger
  • Live bed bugs
  • Rusty or reddish stains on bed sheets or mattresses caused by bed bugs being crushed
