Bed Bug Extermination – San Clemente, California

How to recognize a bed bug infestation in San Clemente

The easiest way to recognize a bed bug infestation in San Clemente is if anyone starts to complain about bug bites that happen during the night.  Bed bugs are most active about an hour before dawn, and bed bug bites are often mistaken for mosquito bites.

Both bed bugs and their eggs are visible to the human eye.  Eggs will look like small poppy seeds, and adults can grow to approximately 1/4″ in length and have an oval, flattened shape.  Bed bugs do not like the sunlight and often hide in cracks and crevices during the day.

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are small insects that feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals.  They have this in common with mosquitos, though bed bugs do not have wings.  Scientifically known as Cimex lectularius (Cimicidae), bed bugs are often found in the nesting areas of birds, bats, and also humans.  Because they are often found in beds, sofas, and other human “nesting” areas, they have earned the common name of “bed bug.”
