Get Rid of Bed Bugs in Your Home
If you’ve ever woken up with itchy bug bites on your arms or legs, there is a good chance that you are sharing your bed with a colony of bed bugs. The pesky insects do not pose a health risk for humans, but they are annoying and leave itchy bites on your body. Bed bugs are tiny, hardy insects that have adapted to many treatments, so most DIY bed bug pest control methods are ineffective. It is best to call an expert for help when you need bed bug removal.
Ways Bed Bugs Infiltrate Your Home
Keeping your home clean is often enough to deter many insects from taking up residence, but bed bugs are different. They are notorious hitchhikers and tend to enter your home by latching onto your clothing or luggage. Once they arrive and infiltrate fabric in your home they start multiplying, and you will likely be dealing with a full-blown infestation in just a few weeks.
Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation
The presence of bed bugs is not always obvious. If you wake up with bites on your extremities, they may be caused by bed bugs if they come in groups of three and are red and itchy. Your bedroom may smell like raspberries if the insects are present, and you may also notice streaks of blood on your sheets where you have crushed bed bugs in your sleep. You should also look for black specks on your sheets, because these may be bed bug eggs.
Habits To Reduce the Risk of a Bed Bug Infestation
The best way to prevent a bed bug infestation is to practice habits that reduce the likelihood of you bringing them into your home. When you travel, keep your suitcase off the floor if possible. Keep dirty clothes in a bag and wash them as soon as you get home, and don’t forget the outfit you wore while traveling home. Simple hygienic habits such as vacuuming daily and washing your sheets weekly can also help, but calling an exterminator is the best way to get rid of bed bugs.
