Put Bed Bugs to Rest with QuickSumo Pest Control
In recent years, there has been a resurgence of bed bugs in the U.S. This is particularly frustrating for homeowners. You work hard to keep your home clean and pest-free.

If you suspect you have bed bugs, QuickSumo Pest Control is here for you. We care about the safety of you and your family, and we stand behind our work. When you need help ridding your home of bed bugs, call us.
Do You Have Bed Bugs?
The first step in eradicating bed bugs is to identify whether or not you do have bed bugs. These small insects are brown to reddish-brown, have a flat, oval shape, and have six legs. They consume blood but can go for months without feeding. Because of their small size, bed bugs are adept at hiding, making exterminating them more challenging. In addition to often living in the seams of mattresses and box springs, they are also commonly found around headboards, picture frames, and even in electrical sockets.
Signs of a bed bug infestation include:
- Bloodstains on your sheets
- Irritating insect bites on your arms, legs, and other areas that are exposed when sleeping
- Bed bug droppings or dark stains on mattresses and sheets
- A musty odor in your bedroom
- Shed bed bug skins
A typical household pest that is often mistaken for bed bugs is the carpet beetle. These insects are, like bed bugs, tiny and brownish. However, unlike bed bugs, they feed on organic material, and in your home, you may find that they destroy your carpets, upholstery, and other fabrics. Our bed bug specialists in McKinney will be able to determine if you are dealing with bed bugs or carpet beetles.
Preventing Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are often tracked into the home on luggage and clothing after traveling. They may also be brought in on second-hand furniture, mattresses, and other items. Because dealing with bed bugs can be so challenging, you should take every precaution to prevent them from coming into your home in the first place.
Steps you can take to prevent bed bugs include:
- When staying in hotels, check the bed and room for signs of bed bugs before unpacking
- Checking luggage thoroughly upon returning home from a trip
- Unpack and clean all of your clothes carefully before replacing them in your closet
- Do not pick up furniture or mattresses from the street
- Purchase second-hand furniture from reputable shops and inspect it thoroughly before bringing it in your home
Bed bugs are also known to find their way into your home via luggage that you checked on a plane or train. If someone else's luggage had bed bugs and it was placed next to yours, it is not uncommon that they will migrate. Similarly, if a neighboring apartment or home has bed bugs, they may also migrate into your home through no fault of your own.
