What Do Bed Bug Shedding Look Like

It is not always possible to spot live bed bugs until the infestation has grown out of control, so early warning signs such as bed bug shedding are a reliable indicator that you have a pest problem. You of course need to know what to look out for since the shedding is easy to miss. Remember that a fully-grown female is capable of laying up to 500 eggs in her lifetime so it is imperative that you execute bed bug extermination in Toronto at the first sign of an infestation.

Identifying Bed Bug Shedding

Identifying bed bug shedding is incredibly simple. The shedding looks like the bed bug walked out of its suit. The shedding looks a lot like an actual bed bug except that it is immobile and translucent in color. It is not uncommon to see a perfectly shaped shell complete with legs, antennae, proboscis and other identifiable body parts. The number of shells you spot may give you a rough idea of the extent of the infestation you are dealing with.

The typical bed bug will shed skin five times before reaching adulthood. The proper word for this shedding is to ‘Molt’ or molting.

How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs

There are plenty of DIY strategies suggested for getting rid of bed bugs but it is best to hire a professional pest control company in Ontario to perform the extermination.

Bed bugs are easy to misidentify and confuse for other common pests. This may lead to using the wrong extermination method or products which are ineffective.

Bed bugs hide in carpet fibers, cracks, cervices, in mattress seams and other hard-to-reach areas. Neglecting to treat all of the affected areas will only lead to an endless extermination cycle and recurring pest problem.

It is also worth noting that most over-the-counter pesticides and products do not contain the same potent active ingredients that the professionals use. Exterminators use tried and tested chemicals, methods and equipment to guarantee a successful removal. They also use eco-friendly chemicals that are not harmful to humans or pets.

Lastly, an exterminator can help you avoid a bed bug infestation in future. Simply removing the pest problem doesn’t resolve the issue of how and why they got into your home in the first place.

Hire a pest control company that provides a warranty for the job for at least one year. Bed bugs can be difficult to exterminate so you need a guarantee that the problem is resolved permanently.
