Do bed bugs fly?

Question: Do bed bugs fly? I recently saw something that looked like a bed bug but had wings and flew on the wall.

ANSWER: They do not fly. You may have seen another small insect, but unless we have a sample we will not be able to help you identify it.

If you need some help, call your local Orkin branch, and ask for an inspection of your premises. Your highly trained Orkin Pest Specialist will gladly inspect, assess the situation, and come up with a plan to keep your home pest free.
