About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are hazardous pests that can infest your entire home, from your furnishings to your clothes. These creatures are very small and can be difficult to see with the naked eye. Bed bugs have oval-shaped bodies and are usually brown or red in color. Although these pests are wingless, they are quick to move and hide from detection.
Bed bugs typically enter your home after catching a ride on you or your belongings. For example, if you stay in a hotel that has a bed bug problem, the pests may get into your luggage or your clothes. When you return home with your unwelcome guests, the bed bugs make themselves comfortable in their new home and begin to reproduce. Purchasing used items from a home that had a bed bug problem can also lead to an infestation in your own home.
These nocturnal critters feed on blood and will use you and your family as a food source. Although bed bugs do not transmit diseases, their bites can turn into itchy and painful welts. If the pests continue to bite you over a period of time, you’ll probably begin to notice blood stains on your sheets. Bed bugs will also leave behind old skins and fecal matter throughout your home. You may even detect an unpleasant smell if you have a large bed bug population in your home.
