Bed Bugs: What You Need to Know to Protect Your Home

bed bugsHave you ever woken up to itchy skin or small welts? If you have, you might have bed bugs. Bed bugs, though they do not carry diseases, are still a nuisance. They’re very small, flat insects which make it easy for them to slip in to mattresses and couches. From there, they can lay eggs and increase in number. Bed bugs rely on blood to survive, and since you sleep on your mattress nightly, their supply is endless with you receiving constant bites. Not only are you in danger, but so are members of your family and any pets you might have. It’s easy for a bed bug to travel from one room to the other – all they have to do is cling to your clothes until arriving to a new destination before another infestation grows. Bed bugs live in both clean and dirty conditions, so keeping your home clean will not prevent them from entering your home.
