Bed Bug Control in Boston

Bed bugs have a nasty habit of hiding near beds and feeding on sleeping humans. For many years, the pests were mostly eradicated. However, increased international travel and lack of knowledge about prevention led to a resurgence of the problem starting in the 1990s. At Pestex, we have more than 30 years of experience with bed bug control in Boston, Framingham, and surrounding areas.
If you suspect a bed bug problem, don’t hesitate to call (617) 544-2566 for an inspection.
About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs spread easily in luggage, purses, and other bags. They are often brought home from hotels, college dorms, or even public transportation. In the house, bed bugs can be elusive to identify. They are often found hiding in mattresses, electrical switches, picture frames, behind baseboards, and under wallpaper in the bedroom.
Although bed bugs don’t spread disease, they are unsettling to find and cause red, itchy welts when they bite people in their sleep. When the house is infested with bed bugs, people often complain of anxiety or an inability to sleep. You can recognize them by their flat, oval shape and mahogany to reddish brown color. The bugs are flat when not fed, but they become engorged after they feed on humans.

Bed Bug Prevention
When bed bugs infest your home, they quickly multiply and can be challenging to eradicate. Whenever possible, it is best to avoid an infestation in the first place. There are a few important steps you can take to prevent a bed bug infestation and identify the pests early to prevent further spread.
To prevent bed bugs, you should:
- Carefully inspect bedding for blood spots or skins that are shed by the bugs
- Change your bed linens frequently
- Inspect hotel rooms upon arrival
- Keep luggage away from walls and furniture, especially the bed
- Inspect your suitcase when you arrive home
- Don’t buy secondhand furniture without a careful inspection
When you notice signs of bed bugs in the bedroom, many people go sleep in another area of the house, such as a guest room or the couch. This can be a big mistake, as it can spread the infestation throughout the house. The best thing to do is to call for bed bug control in Boston and eastern Massachusetts at the first sign of a problem. We offer a free inspection and quote for our services.
