What Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are insects which are flat and small in size. Furthermore, they don’t have any wings and they are active at night while hiding during daytime. Most noteworthy, bed bugs feed of the blood of warm-blooded animals. Some species prefer human blood and have adapted to the human environment.  Those tend to hide in mattresses, bed frames, bedding, furniture, carpets, baseboards and bedroom clutter. You’ll find bed bugs usually in the seams of your mattresses or inside your box springs.

How Do You Know If You Have Bed Bugs

Bed bugs leave behind some clues after their overnight activities that you’ll discover in the morning.  Signs of bed bug infestation include: shed bed bug skins and bed bug shells, fecal spots on your mattress and bedding as well as blood stains on your sheets and pajamas. If you have been bitten by a bed bug you’ll have raised, red welts on your body that may itch or even burn. Usually you’ll see straight lines of multiple bites. Do you suspect bed bugs in your room? Take the sheets off your bed and look at the edges, of your mattress. Unfortunately, bed bugs are rather difficult to get rid off. Call the experts at Terminix to determine the best treatment methods.
