If you imagine bed bugs only being in seedy motels and filthy homes, your imagination is wrong. Bed bugs don’t carry about dirt; they only care about feeding off you. Because of that, bed bugs can be found in five star hotels and the home of your best friend. Since bed bugs are hitchhikers, whenever you visit a place that has an infestation, you risk bringing bed bugs home with you. Once inside your home, the little insects will immediately locate a place to hide close to your bed. Then when you are peacefully sleeping, the bed bugs emerge to gorge themselves on your blood. You will be left with itchy red bites, mixed with the disgust of knowing that little insects are eating you while you sleep.
Know the important sign
Just because you are getting bit, doesn’t always mean you have bed bugs. If you think you will be able to see the bed bugs crawling around, think again. Bed bugs hate light. When the sun is up they find places to hide. Bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed. Now imagine all the places in your bedroom where you could hide an apple seed and you begin to realize how many places a bed bug can hide. While doing inspections, our technicians at Pointe Pest Control have found bed bugs in electrical outlets, down heater vents and under carpet. One of the best ways to know if you have an infestation is to take a close look at your sheets. Bed bugs are lazy; they eat your blood and then defecate. If you notice brownish-red spots in your sheets and on your pajamas and you are getting bit, the chance that you have a bed bug infestation is high.
