Bed bugs are easily one of the top five worst nightmares for any homeowner, as they are a difficult pest to eradicate. Plus, dealing with a bed bug infestation can leave you and your family feeling itchy, anxious, and in need of a good night’s sleep.

Since 1959, our certified technicians have helped homeowners and business owners throughout the Shelby, Ohio, area rid their properties of bed bugs and other unwanted pests.
A bed bug is a small parasitic insect, about 5-7 mm long. They can be found in houses, hotels, college dorms, and cruise ships and can hitch a ride into your home on luggage, furniture, or clothing. Bed bugs feed on human blood and feed once a week.
Common bed bug hiding places include:
While bed bugs can travel throughout the home, they typically remain in one room, only traveling about 15–20 feet during their lifespan. Since they are lazy insects, they are content to lie and wait for their next meal, living up to 18 months without a meal!
Although bed bugs are mostly found in the bedroom, it is not unheard of for them to be in other rooms of your home. This is why we offer bed bug home inspections to give you total peace of mind.
