Public Health Problem
The bed bug ( Cimex lectularius ) causes problems for people in homes and businesses in numerous ways as it bites and feeds on blood. The following governmental agencies have all called bed bugs a public health problem:
Identifying Bed Bugs
If you think you have bed bugs, your heart rate and blood pressure will likely increase as you wonder and worry about the specimen you see. Is this actually a bed bug?
Fortunately, Noosa Pest can help you to answer that question.
First, when full grown, these parasitic insects are oval, about the size of an apple seed, a reddish-brown color. Young bed bugs are incredibly tiny, so although you may be able to spot the grown ups, it’s extremely challenging to see the babies.
They do leave behind evidence, however. If you see a cluster of dark spots, brown or black, in mattresses or box springs, headboards or bed frames, that’s probably droppings from a bed bug infestation. These pests might also travel eight feet away from the bed, hiding in cracks and crevices—so dark spots there can also indicate bed bug excrement.
Do you smell a sweet odor, slightly musty? This can also be a sign. You may also notice groups or lines of bites on your skin; they can even be in a zig-zag pattern. These may well be bed bug bites, especially if they appear on skin that is exposed while you sleep. But, there are other biting insects, so you can’t conclusively say a bite is from a bed bug.
Here’s something you can do. Take a clear picture of any dark spots you see that you suspect can be from this pest, and email it to us or text us for rapid identification. If the answer is “yes,” that looks like evidence of bed bugs, don’t stress. Simply call 704-499-9922 for a comprehensive Charlotte bed bug inspection by our pest management professionals.

Bringing in the Experts: Two-Pronged Approach
When you contact Noosa Pest Management, we first make a proper ID of the insect. Sometimes, signs point to a bed bug infestation but, in reality, it’s another kind of pest, such as ticks or fleas. So, first, our trained technicians will inspect your property for the following signs:
- Poppy-seed-sized dried fecal matter that clusters around the mattress or box springs
- Bed bug exoskeletons that are shed when the pest molts
- Clusters of bed bug eggs; these are incredibly tiny and tough to see without the proper training and LED flashlight
- Blood smears of bed bugs that have been smashed on the sheets
Once the identification has been made, then we can proceed with a bed bug treatment that’s as close to bulletproof as possible.

Bed Bug Treatment FAQs
Unfortunately, yes. This can happen. Bed bugs are crafty creatures and they can ride in on your luggage or other belongings. If you have any reason to suspect a hotel or other lodging facility may have had bed bugs, put your luggage in your garage when you arrive home. Unpack, and wash and DRY all clothes immediately. The heat from the dryer is the most effective part of this process. Use extreme caution when transporting items from luggage through your home to the laundry room. Then, put your luggage in large trash bags and close the bag so it’s airtight.
Keep the luggage in the trash bag for at least 14 days. Open your garage door when you’re ready to open the bag and keep all open to ventilate for a period of time.
There are insecticides available online and in hardware stores, and you can also buy the necessary safety equipment. Two of the main challenges include DIY-ing safely enough, which can be especially difficult if you have children or pets. The other issue is that, if you miss just a couple of these tiny critters, the infestation will grow again and your bed bug prevention will have failed. That’s why it makes sense to contact a professional.
