Help Protect Your Home from Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are extremely common pests that, literally, suck your blood. Or in other words, a human parasite. They don’t feed on animals unlike fleas, they feed on human blood. Bed bugs are constantly multiplying. They can lay up to 500 eggs in just one lifetime. Imagine 1 bed bug laying 500 eggs – now, imagine 500 bed bugs laying 500 eggs each! This doesn’t seem like the kind of thing you’d want multiplying, does it?
Fortunately, bed bugs do not carry or spread diseases. (That’s the ONLY upside of being fed on by bed bugs!)
Telltale Signs of Bed Bugs
Dark fecal spots, cast skins and smooshed bed bugs are signs of an infestation. If you find clusters (a lot of bites in one same area), they could be from bed bugs.
Unfortunately, bed bugs don’t discriminate. They will crawl in your luggage, belongings and clothing no matter how clean you are.
Mattress and box spring encasements are a great way to protect your bed from bed bug infestations. Anything that is enclosed in the encasements will be entombed and die. When traveling, make sure to inspect hotel rooms and furniture to prevent placing your belongings in rooms that could be infected. There are preventative sprays that can be used on luggage and belongings.
