What is the source of bed bugs?

Since the 90s, we had been familiar with bed bugs. At that time, we used to apply insecticides for killing cockroaches, and those chemicals also cause the death of bed bugs. Now, it has become banned insecticides. Thus, it is not legal for hotels to apply those chemicals for controlling bed bugs. Any guest, having bed bugs in his clothes, can leave the bugs in the hotel room. In the future, other guests would turn out to be a victim. Hence, every time you return from any hotel, you have to wash your clothes, trolley bags, and suitcase thoroughly.

Life cycle of bed bugs- How do they thrive

From a nymph, a bed bug turns out to be an adult within 35 days. You can find them in your blankets, upholstery, bedroom furniture, crevices, cracks, mattresses, and any other site. Bed bugs prefer a hot or cold environment for survival. As we are breathing out carbon dioxide, our warm body attracts these bugs.

Bed bugs can take the blood out of our body for survival. In most cases, they start their work before dawn. As you are asleep, the bugs draw the blood. You will not feel pain or any other sensation from this act. The way in which the bugs do their work for injecting the numbing agent does not disturb your sleep. However, while this agent fades away, you will feel itchy. You can find red spots and rashes on the spot. The bugs do not transmit harmful diseases. Still, there is a chance to get an infection while you are scratching the part continuously.

What to do to remove Bed Bugs

The most crucial step is to hire a professional pest control team. Bed bugs can start spreading all over your house very fast. You need to remove the nymph and bed bugs entirely to prevent the chance of an infestation in the future. 

You may do lots of things to reduce the bed bugs’ effect on your house. While the professionals have removed the bugs, you need to apply some tricks to avert the risk of infestation any more. For instance, you have to keep the rooms and furniture clean. Cleanse the mattresses and upholstery regularly. Steam cleaning is the best technique for treating mattresses. Another option to you is to buy a chemical solution for killing bed bugs. However, some bed bugs can resist those chemicals. To get tips, you may speak to the professionals. The best pest control team treats every spot of your house to identify the bed bugs and kill them.

Know the way of tracing the bed bugs

In some cases, it is not easy to find a sign of the presence of bed bugs. The bugs may bite you anytime. However, you would not be able to find the real source of those bugs. You can check out your bedcovers, mattress, and other places. Still, you cannot notice them quickly. Although those bugs are clearly viewable to our eyes, it is tricky to trace them out. The bed bugs are of gingery color, and their length is 5 millimeters. They always look for a place to hide. However, one thing that you can notice is the blood spot on beddings and bed cover.

While you are sure of the presence of bed bugs, you can hire the professionals to reduce their infestation.
