The first time a homeowner becomes familiar with bed bugs is typically after a series of bites have happened. Of course anyone would love to see that first bug before any infestation can happen, but the most prevalent ways to learn if one’s house has been infiltrated is after he or she has undergone their sting’s skin irritation or other side effects. The symptoms include their signature series of snack bumps in twos and threes. The bites have a concentrated redness near the middle of the bump and can be itchy when one awakes in the morning, if the bites occur at night.
Bed bugs often bite their victims on the first and most readily accessible body parts they can find. Including the face, neck, hands, arms, feet and lower legs. When infestations are very complex, bites can be found all over the body because of the large number of insects now in the home. This leaves room for more devastating effects on all the home’s occupants. That is, some people don’t just itch and wonder about mosquitoes in the night; a few people have more intense allergic reactions. They could break out in hives and blisters or even begin to feel strangely ill, which worsens over time as they’re repeatedly bitten. So relentless biting and intense skin irritation require medical attention as soon as possible. But remedies for the bites will only solve one half of the problem; the bugs have to be removed and deterred from re entry too.
A substantial part of performing pest control for bed bugs is to determine, as near the source as possible, how the pests entered one’s home. Nowadays, it is pretty well known that travel to high occupancy places have increased risks of infestations of pests waiting to locate a new home. They flourish in resorts, military barracks, apartment buildings, and dormitories. So besides pesticide treatment, if a homeowner suspects these pests to be present, they should definitely check clothes, souvenirs, and suite cases after every vacation or trip home from college or tour of duty.
Frankly, bed bugs do not just hide near the bed, between mattresses or bedding. They’re behind cushions, in between picture frame backing and inside the crevices of drawers or other very dark spaces, hiding from daylight. Bed bugs are sneaky and stubborn pests that require vigilance. Nobody should wait around for them to go away or put and suffer acquiring fresh snacks night after night. Every bed should be for rest not worry and discomfort.
