Bed Bug Infestations

Bed bug infestations are on the rise in larger cities of Colorado and Wyoming. The contributing factors to this surge of pests are due to increased international travel, relocating households, and an overall reduction in pest control services with some property managers and landlords. Rural areas with small motels and such are also affected by bed bugs as they hitch a ride with out-of-town travelers.

The common bed bug (Cimex lectularius) is a tiny, parasitic insect that feeds off human and domestic animal blood. Beds, as their name suggests, are a common hiding place for these bugs. Their flattened body enables them to effortlessly hide in cracks, crevices, or folds in mattresses, pajamas, box springs, frames, etc. These nocturnal bugs have been known to survive for up to a year without feeding. Most people continue sleeping through bed bug bites and do not realize they have been bitten until later.

Signs of Bed Bugs

The most common sign of bed bugs is unexplained bites on the body, specifically uncovered extremities. Tiny blood trails found on sheets or along mattress seams are also signs. Telltale signs of a more significant infestation are usually a distinctive musty, sweet-smelling odor akin to raspberries, moldy shoes, or almonds. Adult bed bugs are visible to the human eye, growing the mere size of four- to five millimeters, with oval-shaped bodies. They are rusty brown and might appear red or bloated after feeding.

How Not to Rid Bed Bugs

To get rid of bed bugs quickly, some people turn to DIY treatments that are unproductive or even dangerous. We do not suggest these alternative methods.

  • Turn up the heat - this is not practical, as the thermal death point for bed bugs is 115º F. Also, treatments that rely on heat or CO2 cannot reach all the nooks and crannies where bed bugs hide.
  • Leave the home or building vacant – even for an extended amount of time, starving bed bugs by depriving them of human hosts is ineffective and costly since bed bugs can go for over a year without feeding. It may also encourage them to migrate elsewhere eventually.

There is no easy way to eliminate bed bugs on your own. Chemical and non-chemical procedures must be completed using a proper sequence to end bad infestations. Proper extermination requires professional treatment and experience. At Creature Control, we want you to get the most for your money, but more crucially, we want you to get the most out of your sleep.

Scratching during the day may indicate the presence of a bat, but this is uncommon.

More common sources of scratching or clawing during the day is a squirrel or a yellowjacket hive in the drywall, if it is summer.

A scratching sound coming from the attic is a good indication of the presence of a bat. The scratching may be constant or intermittent and may occur at day or night, though with a bat, this scratching will usually be heard at night. This is the sounds of the claws on the bat's wings as it moves around.

It may also indicate the presence of mice, however. An inspection is necessary to more directly pinpoint the source of the sound.

Gnawing sounds during the day are almost always due to the presence of a rodent, such a mouse, squirrel, chipmunk, or sometimes a rat. Rodents are characterized by their large incisor teeth, which continually grow and must be worn down by constant gnawing. Rodents will gnaw on wires, insulation and anything else they can find in an attic. Many house fires due to electrical problems are caused by damaged wires due to squirrel gnawing.

If you are hearing gnawing or chewing sounds at night, it may indicate the presence of a raccoon. Usually this will be accompanied by other noises, such as heavy walking. If you do not hear this, it may be a flying squirrel or some other rodent.

A "rolling" sound is usually due to the presence of a red squirrel bringing in nuts or other debris and rolling it around up in the attic, as squirrels will use attics to hoard food. If you hear this sound during the day, it is certainly a red squirrel, since red squirrels are the only mammals that commonly get into attics that are active during the day (flying squirrels get into attics as well but they are nocturnal). The "rolling" sound associated with a squirrel is sometimes described as the sound of marbles rolling.

If it is not a squirrel, there's a possibility a rolling sound could be made by birds moving around in a tight space.

Rolling sounds at night can be caused by flying squirrels, which are nocturnal. It is made by the squirrel bringing nuts or other debris into the attic or wall.

Raccoons may also make a rolling sound, though this is less common.

Scampering or scurrying during the day is almost always attributable to a squirrel, as most other scurrying animals (such as mice) are nocturnal.

A scurrying or scampering sound at night is usually due to mice moving through the walls, ceiling, or along the floor.

Nocturnal flying squirrels may make this noise as well; peak periods of activity for flying squirrels are just before dawn and shortly after sunset. Their scurrying is light and fast.

Raccoons may also make this sort of noise, but with a raccoon it will be more of a "walking" sound, a bit heavier than a squirrel, and not as fast.

Heavy walking or crawling is a very unique sound that almost always indicates the presence of a raccoon, whether it occurs during the day or night.

If you can clearly hear the sound of flapping during the day, it is definitely a bird.

If you hear flapping at night, it is either a trapped bird or a bat. Nuisance birds are generally not active at night, so if you hear flapping it may be a bird that has become trapped. The flapping of a bat's wings is very soft, almost like a dull whirring. If you hear a very faint, soft whirring, it may mean a bat is flying around nearby in the dark.

Crackling is a very particular noise that is generally made by a yellowjacket hive within the drywall of your home. yellowjackets will pick and gnaw on drywall and use the pieces to construct their hives. The sound of this gnawing is often described as a crackling; it sounds a lot like Rice Krispies popping. If you hear this, it means the yellowjackets are close to gnawing through the dry wall. It is not as common at night, but certainly can happen then as well if the hive is big enough.

A sound of chirping or chattering usually means there are baby animals present. What species depends on the season, but it is very common for baby squirrels, raccoons, or birds (especially chimney swifts) to make these noises. Please contact Creature Control for a more thorough diagnosis.
