Bed bugs can be rather distressing, especially at night when they are most active. They tend to hide in carpets, bedding, mattresses, bed frames, baseboards, and furniture. A bed bug infestation can lead to skin rashes and allergic symptoms, making for an unpleasant home. The professional exterminators at AARD Pest Control make ridding your home of these pesky nuisances easy!
Identifying Bed Bugs
These small insects are generally a bit under a quarter of an inch long and are flat looking. Their bodies are red in color without wings. If you find blood spots on your bedsheets or small itchy bites on your body, you may have an infestation. These bites are often mistaken as mosquito bites and can take up 14 days to appear on some people. Large infestations can begin to develop an odor in a house or residence.
How Could My Home Get Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs can inhabit any kind of residence, from hotels to homes. When traveling, bed bugs can travel back with you through your suitcase. Another common source of bed bugs are used or discarded furniture, so be careful with bringing these items into your home. Also, it's possible for bed bugs to travel though ducts in the walls and floors or through cracks, which often times allows them to spread in apartments or hotel rooms.
Make Your Bed Safe Again
Bed bugs can live anywhere and their eggs are difficult to locate. Common pesticides aren’t generally intended for use indoors and don’t work against bed bugs.
