Bed bugs are an especially worrisome type of pest not only because of their preference for feeding on human blood, but also because of their ability to multiply quite rapidly, which can quickly turn a single incident into a full-blow infestation.
Bed bugs are quite small and flat in appearance, which helps them to avoid detection. Often, the first sign will be itchy bites on your skin, small blood stains on your bed sheets, or dark spots from their droppings around your bed area. Some people have even reported having allergic reactions to bites, making the presence of bed bugs not only a nuisance, but a health risk.
Making matters worse, females can lay between 1 to 12 eggs per day, totaling hundreds over their lifetime, which means that by the time you’ve identified that you have a problem, the infestation is probably already fairly widespread and will require professional help to eliminate.
How do I get rid of bed bugs?
If you suspect that you have bed bugs, the best course of action is to call the Budget Brothers Bed Bug Department immediately. Since they are skilled at avoiding detection, only truly experienced professionals possess the tools necessary to fully evaluate the extent of the infestation and eliminate the pests for good.
Bed bugs feed mostly at night, while their hosts (humans) are sleeping. They spend most of the day hiding in dark, protected areas. They usually prefer to stay close to the host, although they can travel long distances and survive without a food source for quite some time. We’ve most commonly found bed bugs not only in beds, but also in nightstands, headboards, window frames, baseboards, furniture, behind pictures and curtains, and almost anywhere in the immediate proximity of the host.
At Budget Brothers, we use state of the art electronic bed bug detectors. Our certified technicians know precisely what to look for and where to look, and will set you up with a comprehensive bed bug treatment that will eliminate your unwanted guests.

How did I get bed bugs?
Many of our customers have a hard time believing that they’ve been infested with bed bugs because they pride themselves in keeping a clean household or building.
However, their presence has nothing to do with the overall cleanliness of your home or building. This is because bed bugs often hitch a ride to their final destination. This can happen anywhere, from an airport to a busy grocery store.
