Although they’re called bedbugs, they don’t just live in beds. Clutter, baseboards, carpeting, sofas and other furniture are all posh resorts to bedbugs. At night they come out to dine on your blood, an all-you-can-eat buffet to them.
Bed Bug Prevention
In many cases, bedbugs invade your home with no warning and at no fault of your own. However, there are a number of things that you can do yourself to prevent a bed bug problem from ever happening. Here are some tips:
- Change your bedding, discard clutter, and clean and vacuum as often as possible. While doing so, look for bed bugs around the edges of mattresses and the box spring.
- When bringing items into your home inspect each item carefully for signs of bed bugs and eggs. Although very difficult to see, be sure to check, mattresses, bedding, clothing, and books.
- When visiting a hotel, inspect your hotel bed as soon as possible. If you see any signs of bedbugs, you may want to move to a different room or stay somewhere else.
- It is important to be proactively inspecting for bed bugs to catch infestations early. Infestations that are at an earlier stage can be much cheaper and easier to treat than a larger and more established bedbug population, which will require an extensive bed bug removal process.
How Do You Know If You Have Bed Bugs?
If you ever wake up with itchy or bruised skin, you may have a bedbug problem without even knowing it. It is also important to note that just because you do not see the bedbugs, does not mean that they are not there. Bed bugs are often not clearly visible and tend to go undetected. In which case, they can continue to multiply into a full scale bed bug infestation. Sometimes, you may find evidence that bed bugs exist by looking for fecal stains in areas that they live. These stains appear as black spots that smear when wiped with a damp cloth. Our expert bed bug exterminator knows exactly where to look and what to look for. We can spot low level bed bug infestations that otherwise would not be detected by an individual who lacks training.
