Having bed bugs in your walls is a serious issue. Here’s what to do.
It can be difficult to find the source of your bed bug infestation if they’re living in your walls. You can’t get rid of them if you don’t know where they’re hiding.
Bed bugs are a plague of the modern age. They were once rare, but they’ve been on the rise in recent years. Many people have had to deal with them, and it’s not pretty.
Worse still, bed bugs are notoriously hard to get rid of once you’ve got them—which is why it’s so important to find them as soon as possible.
A bed bug exterminator can help you find bed bugs in your walls with an inspection.
How Did You Get Bed Bugs in the Walls?
So how did you get bed bugs in the walls? Bed bugs typically live in mattresses and other furniture. But they can also live in the cracks of your floorboards and behind your walls.
Bed bugs can use almost anywhere as a hiding place. They will crawl into electrical outlets and use them to get behind the walls where they can spread undetected.
Unfortunately for you, bed bugs are incredibly resourceful. These sneaky pests not only use electrical outlets to hide but to travel.
They can spread from room to room or even escape extermination behind your walls!
If you live in an apartment building with multiple units then chances are you will experience some sort of pest problem at some point.
But single-family houses are the #1 target for bed bug infestations.
The good news is that there is no reason why pests should plague you for long.
Simple preventative measures like regular bed bug inspections by professionals will help ensure that any problems are dealt with quickly before they get out of control.
How to Find Bed Bugs in the Walls
You can use the following steps to locate bed bugs in a wall:
- Look for small black spots or stains on the wall. These may be fecal stains left behind by bed bugs after feeding on your blood.
- Inspect electrical outlets and switch plates, which are common hiding spots for bed bugs. Look for black or brown fecal stains, or even blood spots.
- Be aware of any musty smells coming from behind the wall. Bed bugs produce an offensive odor that’s a telltale sign of an infestation.
