What Are Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are small nocturnal insects that feed on the blood. They are attracted to body heat and the carbon dioxide emissions from exhaling. Mature adults are brown in color that may appear to be more red after a feeding of blood. They are generally half a centimeter in length and have a flat and oval body. Juvenile bed bugs appear to be translucent and are smaller than the adults. Bed bug eggs are difficult to detect with the naked eye. Their saliva features an anticoagulant that allows bite wounds to bleed freely and a painkiller to ensure that the host remains asleep. It is their saliva that irritates human skin and causes the characteristic bite marks. Furthermore, bed bugs are extremely resilient and may live up to a year without feeding.
How To Detect Bed BugsThe first signs that most people with a bed bug infestation notice are the bites. Bed bug bites are small and red. Another sign is spotting bed bug droppings your mattress. Our technicians recommend checking the seams and sides as those areas are the most infested areas of a bed. Bed bug droppings look like small black specks.
Initial Steps For Fixing Bed Bug InfestationsIt is not necessary to throw away all your furniture or clothing. This method is not only expensive but it is also ineffective as bed bugs can infect other areas of your home. Additionally, bed bugs can move
from home to home for households living in apartments and conjoined houses. Hygiene does not affect the likelihood of a bed bug infestation. The first step is to put all your linens and clothing into sealed plastic bags and launder them immediately in hot water. It’s important to note that regular machine drying is not hot enough to kill bed bug eggs. Secondly, vacuum your home thoroughly including the floor edges, shelves, and your bed and mattress.
