How Bad Is It To Have Bed Bugs In Your Home?

Have your kids asked about the monster under the bed? We’re pretty sure there are no monsters under the bed, but there might be pests in the bed. Bed bugs are a common problem for homeowners across the United States. They won’t eat your children, but they might try to drink your blood. Are you prepared to protect your family from bed bugs? Learn why it’s important to control this pest and who to call if they make it into your home.

Bed Bugs And Humans

Bed bugs feed on blood from mammals like your pets and your family. They feed at night while you’re sleeping and might leave you with several itchy bumps anywhere you have exposed skin. Although there’s a common misconception that bed bugs only live in unclean places, the reality is that bed bugs can live anywhere that humans can. They are hitchhiker bugs and will travel in suitcases, clothing, electronics, and furniture. You can pick up bed bugs at a hotel, resort, airport, restaurant, movie theater, or even school. Once they are in your home, they can spread throughout the house. Now is the time to call the experts at BugBros!

The Monster In The Bed

Although the name suggests that bed bugs only live in beds, they can spread far beyond the bedroom. Bed bugs may be found in furniture, carpet, drawers, and electronics. They seek out warm, dark areas. The good news is that bed bugs aren’t associated with any diseases. However, just because they don’t carry disease doesn’t mean they are a welcome guest.

Bed bugs bite at night, and this can cause several issues. You may find yourself with insomnia as the bugs wake you up throughout the night, whether you can feel them crawling or biting. Their bites can be quite itchy, and you may end up with infections from scratching them. If you have a severe enough infestation, or if bed bugs are in your home long enough, you could even develop anemia. Bed bugs aren’t really a monster, but they are a dangerous pest to have around, and one you should control as soon as possible. Keep reading to find out how!

Bed Bug Control

The best approach to bed bug control is prevention. You can avoid problems by making it a habit to always check for bed bugs before sitting on fabric seats or placing bags on the floor. Check for bugs, parts of dead bugs, or dark stains that could be from blood or fecal matter. Once bed bugs get into your home, DIY(do it yourself) control is nearly impossible. Bed bugs can spread throughout the house, and you may not know which rooms are infested. Any attempts to control bed bugs will be ineffective if you don’t target every bug in the house. Many do-it-yourself products only eliminate adult bed bugs, meaning you’ll have a second wave of bed bugs once the eggs hatch.

Rather than fighting with bed bugs on your own, we recommend professional help. At BugBros, we don’t just have the tools to effectively combat bed bugs; we also have years of experience and training. Our bed bug treatment programs will target the bugs at all stages of maturity and in every room of your house. Don’t put up with bed bugs living between your sheets. Call the professionals at BugBros to find out how we can help keep your family safe!

We are with bridge creek apartments and have had them come and spray out unit a total of 3 times now and there has been no improvements in our roach problem! They have actually gotten worse sense having them. Anytime I go to clean up after they have been here there are puddles of poison in the... drawers that I have to clean to be able to put my stuff back away. The roaches have gotten worse and started to come out of our walls I also know the roaches are not coming from neighbors because we are familiar with them and they are clean people as well as we are. We have a new baby on the way and are very worried this problem will not be fixed before then. Our maintenance man was working on the bathroom in our room and they decided not to spray the bathroom bc there was a little water on the floor. After these experiences we will be denying any services from them we don’t believe the poison they use is strong enough to get rid of the infestation and that they rush through the process. This experience has really disappointed me.read more
