My Home Is Clean! Why Do I Still Have Bed Bugs?
Unfortunately, sanitation has nothing to do with attracting bed bugs. This is because they are attracted to blood meals. So regardless of whether your home is sparkling clean or a pigsty, it can still attract these pests.
Common Methods of Bed Bug Transmission
Bed bugs are commonly found in places with consistent occupant turnover. Therefore, locations such as hotels, motels, apartments, dormitories, and more are often at risk for infestation.
Because bed bugs hitchhike in search of food, they tend to be transported via:
- Clothing, especially second-hand items
- Used furniture
- Moving boxes
Bed Bug Habits & Hiding Spots
Because it’s easier to remain undetected at night, bed bugs are active during the later hours and hide during the day in spots that are close to where people sleep. Because of their flat, round bodies, they’re able to fit between headboards and bed frames.
Other common hiding places include:
- Box springs
- Behind wallpaper
- Inside picture frames
How to Detect Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are barely visible to the naked eye due to their small size. However, there are a few indications you have an infestation. If you notice any rust-colored stains of blood on your bedsheets, mattresses, or walls, this could be a sign that bed bugs are present. Additionally, their dried excrement might cause staining or dark spots in areas where they congregate.
However, the most noticeable sign that you have bed bugs is their bites. Because they tend to feed on any exposed skin while people are sleeping, you often do not know you’re being bitten until much later. Symptoms of a bed bug bite include an itchy red welt or localized swelling, but some people experience little or no reaction.
This being said, the only sure way to determine whether you’re dealing with a bed bug infestation is to have our pest control experts perform a thorough inspection of your property.
