Ask the bed bug exterminators – FAQ

How to recognize bed bug infestations?

Red or rusty stains on the bed linens and mattresses, eggs and shells of bugs (1mm size) always pale yellow color, and even live bed bugs are all alarming signs that you need expert bed bug treatment. Inspect your body for tiny bites too - they will be like small red dots that look unusual or inflamed.

What are the most effective bed bug treatments for bed bugs?

Cases may differ, and depending on the severity, an expert will know what precise steps to take. Commonly, heat treatments and special insecticides (residual) are working well. You can also consider some DIY methods, as well as regular changing of bedsheets, vacuuming with strong vacuums, and considering bed bug interceptors.

How do bed bugs get into my home?

These unexpected guests can enter your home from various infested areas or very old furniture. Most often they latch themselves onto backpacks, purses, or any soft surface of this kind. Your safest bet is to clean everything thoroughly, wash all clothing items you wore when you suspected the contact, and wait for bed bug exterminators to arrive and help you resolve this quicker!

Are bed bugs dangerous?

Scientists still haven't found any specific proof about dangerous diseases from these little guests. However, they cause unpleasant symptoms such as severe itching serious allergic reactions, disrupted sleep, and even insomnia. A professional bed bug removal visit will prevent all of this and restore your health and comfort quickly.

Can I do bed bug removal myself?

Not really, no. But, what you can do is substantial by itself – a detailed inspection of all baseboards and furniture joints. Examine all cushions and small or big pillows. Check behind wallpapers, tags, headboards, and bed frames. It doesn’t hurt to check behind wall art (pictures) and near electric outlets.

Is this location and local climate worsening the problem?

Most likely yes. In fact, Charlotte is one of the few cities that have it worst with these critters! Bed bugs love hot and humid weather, so this location is quite good for them to breed fast – and they lay eggs mostly between June and October. Ideally, you’d need bed bug extermination or detailed checks during these months, but don’t forget they breed in winter too!

Preventive measures you can start applying now

The chances of dealing with bed bugs are never zero, but there are ways to keep this number pretty low:

  • Change and wash sheets, duvets, and pillowcases regularly (1-2 per week).
  • Use protective bedbug-proof covers to prevent bugs from entering/escaping. This may also be a soft-laminated extra bedsheet under the top sheet layer or similar.
  • Do periodic inspections of your mattresses, bed frames, and box springs. Examine the mattress 1–2 per week when you change the bedsheets. Or if you already had a bed bug extermination company at your home recently, just continue checking for a week minimum after that.
  • Keep your home tidy and don’t let clutter accumulate. Thorough house cleaning goes a LONG way in preventing!
  • Travel carefully; inspect hotel beds, bring a travel-friendly bed bug killer, keep luggage off the floor, and wash your clothes, and clean the suitcase as soon as you arrive home.
  • Inspect and treat second-hand furniture before bringing it inside your home.

Prevention is way easier than bed bug removal, so don’t waste time, be extra hygienic and cautious, and these undesired guests could be kept at bay.


Is there a long-term solution?

Of course, the first step to eliminating the infestation once and for all is scheduling a bed bug control service with a professional exterminator. They can eradicate the existing problem and help you plan out the follow-up steps to keep your home pest-free in the future; which might look a bit like this:

  • Seal entry points in walls, floors, and furniture to eliminate hiding spots
  • Keep impeccable hygiene of the home and your possessions, clothes, etc.
  • Schedule follow-up treatments to remove any remaining bed bugs or newly hatched eggs. Get our professional bed bug control services if you suspect even a small issue recurring.
  • And, engage in community efforts to deal with bed bugs; especially if you live in multifamily units!

The staff was very friendly, professional and not pushy at all about the service. I would hire them in the future.

Brooke L.


I am a long time customer--always satisfied with the service. Last time however, there were still a few spiderwebs on the house-- I called and they sent someone out right away for a thorough redo. I am still a very satisfied customer. Great customer service from office to service staff.

Ruth Roper


Great! Everyone was considerate of my time and inconvenience. Also, every single person I spoke to or met was professional, courteous and friendly.

Cheryl B.


We've used Black Pest for the past 16yrs. Started with our first home and we've continued to use them for each home after moving twice. Always professional, easy to work with, their treatments are effective and in the few times we've needed additional treatments between scheduled visits, they've come out at no additional charge. Have recommended to many neighbors and friends who have same experience.

Kevin Reyes


I’ve used Black Pest for over 10 years and have never had a bad experience. They even respond when I call about seeing a bug or two in my house.
