Managing Infestations of Bedbugs and How to Avoid Them
Managing larger pests that we can easily see with our naked eye can already be tough enough, now imagine if you have nearly invisible pests lurking around the corners of your homes, worst of all, in your beds and couches where you can lay in all day and all night. This is the case with bedbugs, tiny insects that can invade your home and even cause problems without you even knowing they are there, which can make it a lot more difficult because how can you address something which you probably do not even know is there in the first place?
Their tiny size can easily make them nearly invisible especially if you do not look close enough, as identifying bedbugs will also need a little knowledge and awareness to know what you need to look for. Although bedbugs do not always cause problems despite their size, signs of their presence can be particularly more profound if you have allergies that can be aggravated by their itchy bites, which are grouped flat or raised welts on exposed areas that may also form blisters, which most people may react to differently.
While it is commonly thought that bedbugs are only found in dirty places, they can actually be found in clean homes as well as unlike other pests that thrive on dirt, bedbugs feed on blood, and therefore only require humans or their pets to live and multiply. Most people are not aware that bedbugs are usually transferred from an unknowingly infested location like hotels, other homes or furniture shops, where you lay out your belongings that they can crawl into then transfer to your own bed and furniture once you return with them home.
When taking home items that are possible carriers of bedbugs, it is always best to wash them thoroughly before they get in contact with anything at home. Sealing the items before washing, like in an air tight plastic bag for a few days will also help to kill the bedbugs, which you can also do with other items in your home that you suspect to have been infested already, as this can effectively suffocate bugs.
Equipping yourself with a little knowledge will also help you in the proper detection of bedbugs, especially in terms of the appearance of the bugs (brown, oval, and flat) and the eggs they lay, its hatched shells, including their droppings, which are all also tiny and require a close inspection. If you still find yourself unsure about what to do, there are reliable pest management services that you can hire to do the job for you and save you from all the hassle of detecting and killing bedbugs, including making your home bedbug proof.
