Make the best choice for your home and call professionals for help.

Bed Bugs 101

What Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are tiny, wingless, reddish-brown insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. Bed bugs are typically nocturnal, but in some cases they might bite during the day. Their bodies appear swollen and elongated after feeding on blood and they change color from brown to rust.

Where Do Bed Bugs Hide?

As the name implies, bed bug hiding spots center around the bed. They tuck themselves along the seams of the mattress, bed frame, box spring, sheets, and blankets. However, bed bugs can also be found in chairs, couches, cracks and crevices in wooden floors or walls, electrical outlets, and on the seams and creases of curtains.

How to Tell If You Have a Bed Bug Problem

There are some tell-tale signs that may indicate a bed bug problem, such as:

  • Smears of blood on your sheets or pillows
  • Fecal marks, shell casings, or skin sheddings in their noted hiding spots
  • A foul, musty, or sweet odor, similar to coriander or spoiled raspberries
  • Bedbug excrement, which can look like dark or rusty spots
  • Bed bug bites on the body, especially the neck, shoulders, arms, or legs

If you see any of these around your home, you may be subject to an infestation.

Why Do I Have Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are masters at hitching a ride into your house. They may have entered your home through your luggage, clothing, or pre-owned furniture, like beds or couches. Another source of bed bugs could be traveling houseguests, as they’re also found on public chairs and seats like those on cabs, planes, trains, or other modes of public transportation. Bed bugs can also come from your stay in dormitories and libraries, which are becoming common breeding grounds for these insects.

Phenom’s Bed Bug Control Process

At Phenom Pest Control, we strive to go above and beyond to bring our customers the desired results. First, our professional exterminators inspect your home to discover the extent of the infestation and recommend a treatment. These treatments include:

  • Chemical Treatment: Uses insecticides to provide long-lasting protection against bed bugs. 
  • Heat Treatment: Increasing the temperature of the affected area up to 113°F and kills all life stages of the bedbug within minutes, including nymphs and eggs.
  • Steam Treatment: Uses high amounts of heat through a hose to instantly kill the bugs.
  • Preventive Approaches: Reducing clutter, filling in cracks and crevices, and washing clothing worn in public places can prevent an infestation from reoccurring. 


Eliminating bed bugs is a complex task. You can expect a follow-up visit from us a couple of weeks after the first treatment to monitor progress and ensure your home remains bug-free.
