Why Are Bed Bugs a Growing Problem in Las Vegas Valley?
Bed bugs have become an increasing problem in recent years all across the world, but especially in the United States due to travel and tourism. Bed bugs like to hitch a ride on our clothing, our pieces of luggage, and our furniture. Once they make themselves comfortable in a home they begin to multiply to alarming numbers if there aren’t any bed bug treatment measures taken.
Bed bugs usually hide most of the day until night time when they feast on blood meals, making victims have a miserable time sleeping. As their name suggests, bed bugs like to hang around beds and it is not uncommon to find bed bugs on mattresses hiding in the corners and folds where they are secluded. are becoming more and more common, leading to miserable sleeping patterns.

No matter the reason bed bugs are present, the solution is the same: a solid bed bug control program. Our bed bug control services are a specialized add-on service separate from our general pest control treatment plans.
Our bed bug treatment plan includes the following:
- Inspect the residence for signs of bed bug activity, such as live bugs, shed skins, fecal stains/spots, and eggs.
- Identify the specific area(s) where bed bugs are present in order to narrow down treatment options.
- Prepare the residence by removing all bedding and moving furniture away from walls to increase access to infested areas.
- Use specialized vacuums to remove visible bed bugs and eggs from furniture, carpets, mattresses, box springs, and other items.
- Apply an eco-friendly insecticide directly onto affected surfaces to kill any remaining bed bugs.
- Seal any cracks or crevices where bed bugs may be harboring with a chemical-based sealant or dust insecticide.
- Place special encasements on mattresses and box springs that will help prevent further infestation while allowing chemical treatments to sink in better.
- Monitor the residence over several weeks after treatment to ensure all bed bugs were eliminated successfully.

Bedbugs can multiply at an alarming rate, so even having just a few bed bugs present in your home can become a huge problem and would warrant you taking action by contacting a professional that is skilled in bed bug control.
Below we have uncovered the most common reasons people get bed bugs:
Have you recently gone on a relaxing vacation out of the country or out of town? You may have brought back a souvenir that you don’t want in the form of bed bugs. One of the most common ways that bed bugs come into your home is because they hitched a ride on your luggage while you stayed at a hotel or resort. Airports are also a hotbed for possibly getting bed bugs onto your belongings.
And it doesn’t even matter if the lodging you are staying at is a 5 Star Hotel with a shining reputation, it just takes one guest carrying bed bugs checking into a hotel to create a big bed bug problem that can potentially affect everyone who spends the night there.
2. Second-Hand Furniture
So you walk by the dumpster and you see a nice couch or mattress that’s been discarded by someone. Maybe you are at a thrift store or some other place where secondhand items are sold. Remember, there’s a reason such items were thrown out. Even a single bed bug inside the piece of furniture can eventually cause an infestation. You may feel like you saved a bundle, but the bites and itchy infestation you receive in return will have you filled with regret.
3. Public areas
Bed bugs can spread via human travel and movement. Their uniquely flat bodies and small round shape allow bed bugs to hide just about anywhere they can squeeze. Wherever many different people are coming and going, bed bugs will be there. That is why bed bugs are frequently encountered in college dorms, city buses, and even movie theatres.
What these places all have in common is that they don’t have established populations, making it easy for bed bugs to be picked up and transferred from people resting in these areas.
4. A House Guest
Everyone loves a hospitable person, especially bed bugs. If you’re having a friend or relative from out-of-town crash in the guest room or on your couch, you may be at risk of encountering bed bugs. Your guest may not even know that a bed bug has hitchhiked on their suitcase or in their clothing and they end up accidentally giving you a bed bug infestation as an unintentional parting gift.
5. Renting an apartment with infestation left over.
Moving into a new apartment? You may be greeted with a housewarming gift of bed bugs. These bloodsucking pests may have been left over from the previous renter or even a neighboring apartment where the previous renter had the problem and took off. If the apartment management or maintenance doesn’t do a thorough job of inspecting and dealing with the problem, it, unfortunately, becomes your problem.
