“Erick was very professional and found more rodent activity than I had found. He laid more traps and is very thorough with his inspections.” - Susan M.
The first step in controlling any bed bug infestation is identifying it. Bed bugs are very tiny, but if you know what to look for, you can spot them.
Below is a description of bed bugs in each stage of life:
- Eggs: Bed bug eggs are very tiny and difficult to see. They are approximately the size of a pinhead and pearl-white with a dark eye spot.
- Young bed bugs (nymphs): Young bed bugs can be nearly impossible to see as they are tiny (smaller than a sesame seed!) and translucent.
- Adult bed bugs: Adult bed bugs are the easiest to spot due to their size and reddish-brown coloring. They are usually around the size of an apple seed and are either round or oval-shaped, depending on how recently they’ve fed.
Because bed bugs are skilled at hitching rides on clothing, purses, bags, and other items, infestations have been on the rise in the last few decades. If you travel often, we recommend checking your home for bed bugs regularly to catch infestations early on. This type of pest is very tricky to eliminate, so early detection makes the process that much easier.
Check your mattress and headboard for the following signs of bed bugs:
- Reddish-brown stains (blood)
- Dark spots (excrement)
- Live or hatched eggs
- Live bed bugs
- Molted bed bug skins
Bed bugs can also be found in:
- Picture frames
- Wall outlets
- Drawer joints
- Ceiling/wall junctions
Bed bug infestations are usually accompanied by strong, musty odors and mysterious bug bites on arms, legs, and necks. If you suspect you have an infestation, schedule an inspection straight away. Hydrex Pest Control restores safety and comfort to your home as quickly as possible.

Is There Anything I Can Use for Ants Inside My House Before My Service Technician Comes for Treatment?
You can use soap and water or an ammonia product for ants all over the counter. Other household and over-the counter-sprays may counteract the control of ants, so please do not use them before or after treatment.
If My House is Sprayed Right Before it Rains, Will the Treatment Wash Away?
Pesticide applied to eaves, around windows, under patio covers, and many pest harborages will be effective even if it rains. Still not sure? Please call us (707) 475-3090.
