Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs are small insects that can potentially cause big problems for you and your family. These rust-colored pests dine on human blood, and while they are not known to transmit diseases, many people break out in rashes and red welts after being bitten. In certain cases, some people develop anemia and severe allergic reactions.
Where can bed bugs be found?
Because bed bugs are nocturnal, they usually hide during the day, and they can be extremely difficult to find. In fact, many people are unaware of a problem until a severe infestation occurs. Typically, bed bugs hide in mattresses, box springs, carpets, and upholstered furniture. Because they are so small and basically flat, they can even hide behind baseboards, electrical outlets and in tiny cracks in the walls of your home.
Keeping Bed Bugs out of your home
Bed bugs are common visitors in many hotels, and they will often crawl into your suitcases and hitch a ride back home with you. They may also dwell in second-hand furniture and clothing, so you should thoroughly inspect these items before buying them. In some instances, bed bugs have been found in movie theaters and library books. Bed bugs often congregate together, and you may see groups of them in the corners of your mattress or under furniture cushions. They also leave behind red spots if they are crushed, so finding unexplained stains on your furniture or bedding may be a sign of a problem.
