Bed bugs are everywhere in and around New York City and Long Island, and their presence is only on the rise. But what causes bed bugs in your home or business? How do you know when you’re facing an infestation, and who can you call to treat your property of bed bugs and other annoying pests?

Magic Exterminating in Flushing NY has been clearing bed bugs from commercial and residential spaces for over 60 years. Our technicians have worked with enough clients to know the factors that can cause these pests to infest a space, and we know all the strategies we can use to eradicate them for good.

Early Signs of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are small, about the size and shape of a flattened apple seed. Because of that they can be difficult to spot if you don’t know what you’re looking for. If you’re trying to determine if you have an infestation there are four main signs of bed bugs:

  • Red stains from crushed bed bugs
  • Eggshells or eggs colored a pale yellow
  • Excrement, which appears as dark spots slightly larger than a period
  • Adult bed bugs that are found clustered together

Magic Exterminating can treat your residential or commercial property for bed bugs, no matter the case. However, if you want to avoid a return infestation, you benefit from knowing what drew them to your home or business in the first place.

Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?

If you’re hit with a swarm of these brown and painful pests, you might ask yourself what attracted them to your property in the first place. Bed bugs congregate in places with reliable blood hosts, so they’re especially common in hotels and dorm rooms. In areas like these they can cling onto the outside of your clothes or luggage, allowing you to bring them home without even realizing it. 

Bed bugs spread quickly and silently, quickly becoming a problem before you even realize it. So as soon as you see any of the signs listed above, it’s vital to call Magic Exterminating to ensure you get the treatment you need.
