Bed Bugs

NICKNAMES: Red Coates, Mahogany Flats, Wall Lice
ORIGIN: Early colonists
LIKES: Blood
HIDEOUTS: Hotels, airplanes, couches, beds
SKILL-SET: Ability to chill out for a year without food


BY the 1950s bedbugs were almost completely under control but with the boom in international travel they’ve been increasing in prevalencein the Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington areas ever since the 1990s.

Being indoor pests, there are no high or low seasons for bedbugs. Their numbers grow throughout the year, relentlessly.


If you’ve been away, stayed at a hotel, or you go the antiques store to pick up a nice old cabinet, you’re in danger of bedbug hitchhikers. And once they’re in, they’re hard to get out.

Bedbugs are NOW highly resistant to most insecticides, requiring a thorough inspection and treatment.

A bedbug infestation as with any pest is bad news. Some signs of a serious epidemic are:

  • Small bugs or little white eggs in the joints of your furniture, not just beds
  • Bumpy bites on your skin
  • Tiny black spots on your mattress (droppings)
  • Blood spots on your sheets
  • Mottled bedbug shells
  • A musty scent in your bedroom

But by the time you see these signs it’s more than likely too late for you to do anything about it using just shop bought extermination control. And besides even if you get rid of one danger the bedbugs will more than likely come back if you don’t take precautions.

You need to act fast and call us – 855-268-9675 (855-ANTWORK)!
