Why You Need to Remove Bed Bugs Quickly
Because bed bugs feed on human blood, which they consume mostly at night, they have taken away the comfort of many homes and hospitality businesses in Arkansas. Bed bug bites can cause itchy welts and rashes, skin irritation at the site of the bite, sweating, watery eyes, abdominal pain, and lethargy. They can also result in psychological effects and other health complications. Some individuals may develop severe reactions with more extreme symptoms, including difficulty in breathing, blisters, fever, feeling nauseous or flu-like, swollen tongue, or irregular heartbeat. Even though humans are their preferred host, bed bugs can also feed on animals such as cats, dogs, etc.
Bed bugs reproduce incredibly fast, so removing them as soon as possible is the best way to take back control of your home or business.
Bed Bug FAQs
What do bed bugs look like?
Adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed, 5-7 millimeters. They are long, brown, with a flat oval-shaped body and a winding balloon-like, reddish, or brown shape. They also have beaks with three segments, a four-part antenna, wings (though not for flight), and short, golden-colored hairs. They are smelly. Their musty-sweet odor is produced by the glands on their lower side of the body. Nymphs or young bed bugs are smaller, translucent, or whitish-yellow, and hard to see by the naked eye.
What do bed bug bites look like?
Bed bugs will bite any part of the body where there is skin exposed during sleep, such as the neck, face, hands, shoulders, arms, legs, etc. A bed bug bite can look like:
- A raised itchy bump with a clear center
- A red, itchy bump with a dark center and lighter swollen surrounding area
- A tiny red bump or welt in a zigzag pattern or a line
- A small red bump surrounded by blisters or hives
You may also see tiny spots of blood on bites, which often dry up and stain bed sheets.

Bed bugs are generally caused by increased international travel, changes in pest control practices, and resistance to insecticides.
