Learn How To Identify Bed Bugs In Claremont, NC

Bed bugs are invasive pests that can be found all across the country; and, unfortunately, our area of North Carolina is no exception. One of the best ways you can protect yourself and home from bed bugs is to have a good understanding of what these pests look like; knowing what they look like will give you the advantage of being able to seek professional help quickly and eliminate them from your home before they become a major problem.

Bed bugs eggs are about the size of a pinhead and are almost impossible to spot without a professionally trained eye, but the adults and nymphs can be easily identified hiding out in the seams of mattresses, box springs, and upholstered furniture if you know what you are looking for.

  • Adults - Adult bed bugs grow to be about the size of an apple seed. They have flat, oval-shaped bodies and are reddish brown in color. If they have recently had a blood meal, they will turn a more reddish-purple color and become swollen and elongated.

  • Nymphs - Nymph bed bugs, which are young bed bugs, are smaller than adult bed bugs and are translucent, making them very difficult to spot. However, if the nymphs have recently fed, they will turn a bright red color and become very easy to spot.

If you ever discover bed bugs in your home, or even just suspect them inside your Claremont home, contact A-1 Pest Control immediately. We provide the bed bug services needed to quickly and completely eliminate these parasitic pests from your home!
