Bed Bug Removal in West Des Moines, Iowa

We understand that it can be disheartening to learn you need bed bug removal. You may be seeking answers to why it happened. Unfortunately, bed bugs don’t confess no matter how much we interrogate them. All jokes aside, there are several ways they could have gained access, ranging from navigating from a shared wall with your neighbor to hitchhiking in on your clothing, used furniture, luggage, or even from a guest’s clothing or luggage. One way they do not enter is from the outdoors, which is why pest control barriers are ineffective at keeping them away. Thankfully, most other pests are deterred by our ongoing pest control services, so that is still the best way to keep your home pest-free in general.

Luckily, we’re here to enlighten you and make sure you have some of the important information you need. Check out our answers to a few frequently asked questions about bed bug removal below.

What do bed bugs look like?
Some people mistakenly believe that bed bugs are not visible to the human eye.

The adults are also reddish-brown and wingless while the babies are translucent or a whitish-yellow color.
Do bed bugs really bite?

How long does bed bug removal take?
Unfortunately, the length of time it takes to kill bed bugs varies from situation to situation. It can be difficult to disrupt the bed bug life cycle, and it can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to a few months to eliminate them, depending on the severity of the infestation.
