Bedbugs can cause one to be very stressed when they invade your home. However many people don’t know much about them, besides that they are very common domestic pest. There are ways that you can know if your home has bedbugs and the ways in which you can take care of the invasion.
Bedbugs are small bugs, and they are oval in shape and brown in color. Due to their small and flat shape the bedbugs can hide just about anywhere in your house and can fit in very small gaps, just the size of business cards. The bedbugs lay many eggs, and this is their way of reproducing. When a bed bug matures it can lay up to hundreds of eggs in her lifetime. This means a bedbug’s population can increase very quickly.
The bed bug will shed their skin before they mature and this happens at least five times. Before the bedbugs sheds off its shell they have to eat first and when they are enlarged their skin will come off. Sometimes you can get the skin that the bedbugs have shed off on your beddings and this is how you know that they have infested your home.
The bedbugs will normally make their homes on the bed cracks, couches and this gives them the advantage to suck your blood and especially when its dark. They will pierce the skin of the human they are feeding on and then they will use their skinny, straw-like mouths to draw blood. As they continue feeding they will become larger and engorged with blood. After the bedbugs pierce your skin you might not notice immediately, but through the skin irritation you will notice that they have bitten you. The bedbugs do not cause any diseases, but the main problem is that these bugs spread very fast and also how to get rid of them, they are nasty, irritating and the idea of having small creatures crawling and sucking your blood while you are sleeping is stressful.
Your home not being clean might not necessarily be the reason why your home can be under bedbug invasion.
They can get stuck on your clothes , bought furniture or luggage if you are in contact with a couch that has bedbugs, and they can also crawl into your home. The bedbugs will spread from one room to the other.
After realizing that you have unusual bites on your skin, confirm with other members of your house so that you can establish if the bites are from bedbugs.
