A Clean House Won’t Keep the Bed Bugs Out

By October 24, 2017Bedbugs

All throughout the Northwest, bed bugs are on the rise. They are spreading throughout big cities and small towns. It is getting more and more difficult to prevent infestations from occurring. Bed bugs have been found in hotels, motels, hospitals, schools, homes, offices, barracks, restaurants, movie theaters, and college dorm rooms. Since bed bugs are masters of hitchhiking, you risk bringing them home any time you visit a location that has an infestation. There is good news if you find an infestation in your home.

If you think that a clean home will keep the bed bugs out, think again.


Bed Bugs Don’t Care About Clean

This is a huge misconception about bed bugs. People think that if they keep a clean home, bed bugs will decide to infest a different location. Unfortunately, this is not true in the slightest. All a bed bug needs to survive is a host. Bed bugs are obligate blood feeders and you are their main course. It doesn’t matter if you have the cleanest home on the block, if you bring bed bugs home in your purse, a backpack, or a briefcase, it won’t take very long until you have a full-blown infestation. Our knowledgeable technicians have found bed bugs in the dirtiest home and the cleanest. We find bed bugs wherever there are people.

Bed Bug Education 101

Since bed bugs are on the rise, there are things you need to know that will help you identify an infestation. Being educated on the behaviors of bed bugs will help you know when you need a bed bug exterminator. Since bed bugs hate light, they prefer to hide during the day. You might never find a bed bug. Even though they like to hide, they are specially adapted to find you when you are sleeping. In order to find out if you have bed bugs, it is important to know the signs. The first sign of an infestation is bite marks. If you wake up each morning with new bite marks on your arms, legs, or face you need to investigate further. The reason for this is that bed bug bites look like a lot of other bug bites. Bites alone are not a definitive infestation sign. Finding bites only means you need to take a closer look. The next sign to look for is the spots. When bed bugs bite you, they will often defecate. The idea of a little blood feeding bug doing its business on you each night is certainly nasty, but it gives you something to look for. You will notice spots on your sheets and pajamas. If you look closely at the spots, you will notice they are reddish brown. If you find both of these signs, the chance that you have an infestation is extremely high and it is time to call in Pointe Pest Control.
