How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs
If ever there was an award for hide and seek, bed bugs would win the gold. These experts have tiny, flat bodies that allow them to move swiftly through the night, and hide in places such as the seam of mattresses and other furniture. Bed bugs are blood-sucking, parasitic insects that survive off humans and animals, but can go several months without a meal while hibernating- so they are incredibly difficult to eradicate.
Identification of a Problem
Because they are hard to spot unless you are looking, their tell-tale sign is their bite. Similar to mosquito bites, they leave behind small, red, and slightly swollen marks that can itch profusely. Most times, bites will occur in a line, however, it is possible for them to be random. Although rare, it is also possible for someone allergic to suffer from anaphylaxis due to bites. You will wake up to find these bites on your body as bed bugs are nocturnal and do most of their feeding during the night. If you happen to see these, you can search for other signs including:
- Blood stains or fecal spots on bedding
- Musty odor
- Rusty spots on sheets
- Tiny egg shells or skins near hiding place
- Bedbugs in folds of mattress
