Bed Bug Treatment

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans.


What do bed bugs look like?

Adult bed bugs look something like an apple seed, and are small (approximately 1/4 inch long), oval in shape, and reddish-brown in color. Juvenile bed bugs, known as nymphs, differ from adults because they are often much smaller (1 millimeter) and may appear clear or tan in color.


Can I see bed bugs?

While bed bugs are visible to the naked eye, they are most active at night. Due to their cryptic nature, they are not often seen during the day. It can take some time to notice a bed bug infestation. 


Where do bed bugs hide?

Because bed bugs are small and flat, they are able to squeeze into tiny cracks and crevices on the mattress and box spring, behind headboards, and inside furniture. They prefer to live in groups and are often found in clusters.


What do bed bug bites look like?

Bed bug bites are difficult to distinguish from fleas or mosquito bites because (as with most biting insects) not all skin reactions are the same. Bed bugs bite the exposed skin of humans while they are sleeping or at rest, often including the neck, face, arms, and hands.


Can I get rid of bed bugs myself?

Bed bugs are very difficult to treat, even for well-trained technicians. You should not attempt to control an infestation with do-it-yourself products, but rather leave the treatment to professionals. All our RK Thermal Remediation technicians are trained and certified!

    • Fact: bed bugs are becoming resistant to chemicals

  • Bed bugs are attracted to heat, making them emerge from tricky hiding spots.
