Synopsis

They’re rightly called pests because bed bugs are literally pestering organisms. Once they invade the home, they are a constant source of annoyance that can be harmful to you and your family and damaging to your home.

Bed bugs are often mistaken for ticks or small cockroaches. They are tiny. They are reddish brown in color. They cannot fly. They bite people. In fact, bed bugs feed by sucking blood from human and animal prey.

Bed bugs thrive in places that are usually dusty and vacant. In homes, they’re usual hiding places are on anything and every area that have moderately deep cracks and crevices like in the sides of mattresses and pillows, bed frames, ends of curtains, torn edges of wallpaper or spaces in wicker furniture.

The most common sign that bed bugs have infested the home is when traces of fecal matter can be spotted. But it will require the services of a professional pest control company in order to determine if the infestation is still active

Bed bugs are not known to be disease carriers. But knowing that their presence is in your home, in the very places where you sleep, sit and lounge around in can not only be very discomforting, it can actually be an indication of how unclean your home is and also says something about you and your family’s personal hygiene.
