Identifying Bed Bugs In NYC
Bed bug eggs are approximately as big as a pinhead. They are pearl white.
After five days, the eggs develop an ‘eye spot.’ This spot makes it easier to tell eggs from surrounding detritus.
Young bed bugs or nymphs can be much harder to spot than those in other stages. That’s because when unfed, they’re translucent. When fed, they’re a yellowish-white color. But depending on how mature the nymph is, it can still be invisible to the untrained eye.
Adult bed bugs are brown and flat. They’re also approximately the size and shape of an apple seed. And if you don’t know what you’re looking for, they’re easily confused.
But, a recently-fed bed bug balloons and becomes more obviously elongated. They’re also a reddish-brown color.
As they advance in age, they look increasingly like bugs. They present with three pronounced segments, wings, and antenna.
Is It Bed Bugs?

K9 InspectionOnce you determine you have bed bugs, or even if you only suspect them, the next step is a K9 inspection. This will help with pest management and pest control. Typically, once pest control experts determine you have bed bugs, the next step is fumigation. But this involves chemicals and pesticides. If you live with pets or have concerns about the environmental impact these have, this may not be ideal. But bed bug extermination doesn’t have to be chemical. Nor does bed bug removal have to rely on pesticides.
Eco Earth Bed Bug Dogs
How It Works?
Eco Earth Bed Bug Dogs is committed to environmentally-friendly, green approaches to pest management.
We use proven and effective methods to eliminate bed bug infestations without resorting to chemicals or pesticides that could harm humans or animals.
We use dedicated bed bug dogs to confirm your bed bug infestation. Our dogs are trained to the highest professional standard and can sniff out bed bugs from their distinctive, sweet odor.
There are two essential benefits to employing bed bug dogs to hunt out bed bugs.
- Sniff out adult bed bugs and eggs in minutes
- Reduce need for invasive home search
Consequently, dog inspections enable us to focus on the specific areas your bed bugs have infested. It saves all us time, and you save money in the process.
Once our bed bug dogs confirm there’s a bed bug problem, the next thing to do is cryonite freezing. We use liquid nitrogen to safely and effectively kill bed bugs and their eggs. Fumigation can have lingering and detrimental effects. But cryonite freezing is completely safe.
It’s even safe on electronics and various surfaces. This is not always true of standard freezing and heating do-it-yourself bed bug treatments.
Finally, we use high-temperature steam to kill any live bed bugs that eluded the cryonite.
This kind of steam treatment is exactly what a dry cleaner would do to treat any bed bug-infested clothes. While you may still want to treat clothes separately, you can rely on the steam’s efficacy to kill bed bugs.
We perform bed bug detections, bed bug inspections, and bed bug exterminations across various areas. These encompass New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut areas.
