In the pest control world, there may be not greater pest than the common bed bug. Bed bugs feed on human blood and are very difficult to remove once they are established in a home or commercial building. If you or your family has traveled a lot this past summer, a bed bug infestation is probable. Bed bugs have spread throughout the globe as one of the most widespread pests and their migrations have been due solely to human movement.
Bed Bugs are Not Discriminating
So if you stayed in that posh hotel or not so posh hotel, you could have brought bed bugs home with you. If your kids go to summer camp, they may have brought bed bugs home with them. If you travel for business, you may encounter bed bugs on airplanes, taxis, hotels, motel, air BNB’s and even on a bus or subway. The spread of bed bugs is phenomenal. They are found on all continents except Antartica. They do not care about the price of your room; only that humans may sleep there. They do not discriminate, and they mostly come out only at night while you sleep.
Another great way to bring bed bugs home is to pick up used furniture, such as a couch or overstuffed chair. All that free stuff might be hiding your next biggest nightmare – Bed bugs. How do you know if there are bed bugs in your home? Usually, the telling sign is unexplained bites when you wake up in the morning.
Bed Bug Bites
Bed bug bites may look like mosquito bites and generally they itch. You might spot a bed bug if you look closely at your bedding. They are tiny rice-sized bugs that may be whitish or pinkish.
