The Raleigh West neighborhood in Beaverton is a charming area populated with many families. There is palpable home-pride radiating from the lawns of this suburban enclave, and though its charm is decidedly ubiquitous, it is just as vulnerable to pest infestations as the rest of Beaverton proper.
Bed bug infestations have grown significantly over the past decade. Bed bugs have adapted and survived and have become harder to kill and are now thriving in many metropolitan areas around the country. The cloistered family neighborhoods of inner Beaverton are no exception and the problem is getting worse.
Before assuming that you have bed bugs it is important to positively identify them. Here are a few of their key characteristics:
Bed bugs are about the size and shape of a watermelon seed: flat, oval-shaped, and amber or brownish red in color.
Bed bugs will hide in tight places near the bed like the folds of the mattress, in the bed frame, or in the nightstand
Bed bug bites are most commonly found in clusters on the upper body and usually appear in the morning.
