BED BUG CONTROL COMPANY NEAR THOMASVILLE
Even if you are single and you feel very lonely, chances are you may not really be alone on your bed every night. Whether you are at home, in a 5-star hotel room, or other businesses, you might actually have bed bugs for company.
What are bed bugs?
Bed bugs are small, parasitic insects that live off the blood of humans and other warm-blooded hosts. They are about the same size of an apple seed. Once they feed off their hosts, their bodies swell. They move around quickly, though they do not fly. And though they cause discomfort to their hosts, they do not transmit diseases. They are nocturnal; they bite only at night while you sleep.
Bed bugs were once reported as having disappeared from public notice in the United States. However, since the 1990’s, these pests have made a comeback. The cause is unknown, but it is said to have been the result of the increase in international travel.
Where are they found?
Bed bugs are travelers; they may enter your homes or offices through bags, luggage, clothes, or other items. Once they get to your house, they tend to hide on mattresses, bed frames, box springs, and headboards. This makes you vulnerable to them as they have easy access to you as you sleep.
Signs that you have company
If you wake up in the morning feeling itchy on areas that were not itchy the night before, you may have been bitten by bed bugs. You may also notice fecal stains, eggs, or blood stains on your sheets or pillow cases. It is also said that bed bugs smell like “rotting raspberries”.
Getting rid of the bed bugs
Clean your linens, bedding, and clothing in hot water then dry them on the highest dryer setting. High temperatures help kill off the pests. Vacuuming your bed can also work, but be sure to dispose of the vacuum right after use. If you have a spare bedding, enclose it in a plastic bag to protect them from bed bugs.
If you have cracks in your wall, repair them. These are some of the favorite hiding places of bed bugs.
