Bed Bugs are little bugs that are nocturnal and feed on human blood. There are actually a lot of different kinds, including some that feed on certain types of animals like chickens. They usually live inside of mattresses and on the cots, where they have convenient access to a food source - you. They crawl out before dawn and bite you, sucking blood for about five minutes. You don't feel anything until they safely back in its home. They will bite once a week or so, can live for a long time without feeding. They can infest all places in your bedroom, most often they're in the mattress - in the seams, the box springs, or sometimes the linens, furniture within crawling distance, carpet and in all kinds of random things, because they don't create a nest, they just hide somewhere.
Bed bugs crawl in the spaces between walls and if your neighbors have them, you could crawl in to your apartment. Therefore It is harder for you to permanently get rid of them, since you've got a potential source until your neighbors take care of their own infestation.
Travel: Many hotels have infestations. With international travel, Bed bugs will crawl into your luggage and get carried back into your home.
Clothing: Sometimes they could get into your house by crawling onto your clothes randomly - but this is actually pretty rare.
Used furniture or clothing: If you buy used furniture, there can be bed bugs in them
Your Guests : Your cable guy, a plumber, or anybody who goes into other people's houses, can carry bed bugs. Birds and bats are also most common carriers.
How we protects you from Bed Bugs
We are providing bed bugs treatment services with the use of advance technology and latest equipment. The treatment is done by spraying insecticide, especially in the seams of mattresses, beds, all other furniture and cracks and crevices infested by bedbugs. These bed bugs are generally found in the seam of the mattress and in the cracks of the bed and spreads in the entire house.
Signs of Infestation
If you wake up with itchy areas you didn't have when you went to sleep, you may have bedbugs, particularly if you got a used bed or other used furniture around the time the bites started. Other signs that you have bedbugs include:
- Blood stains on your sheets or pillowcases
- Dark or rusty spots of bedbug excrement on sheets and mattresses, bed clothes, and walls
- Bedbug fecal spots, egg shells, or shed skins in areas where bedbugs hide
- An offensive, musty odor from the bugs' scent glands
Where Bed Bugs Hide
Bedbugs may enter your home undetected through luggage, clothing, used beds and couches, and other items. Their flattened bodies make it possible for them to fit into tiny spaces, about the width of a credit card. Bedbugs do not have nests like ants or bees, but tend to live in groups in hiding places. Their initial hiding places are typically in mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and headboards where they have easy access to people to bite in the night.
Over time, however, they may scatter through the bedroom, moving into any crevice or protected location. They may also spread to nearby rooms or apartments.
Because bedbugs live solely on blood, having them in your home is not a sign of dirtiness. You are as likely to find them in immaculate homes and hotel rooms as in filthy ones.
When Bedbugs Bite
Bedbugs are active mainly at night and usually bite people while they are sleeping. They feed by piercing the skin and withdrawing blood through an elongated beak. The bugs feed from three to 10 minutes to become engorged and then crawl away unnoticed.
Most bedbug bites are painless at first, but later turn into itchy welts. Unlike flea bites that are mainly around the ankles, bedbug bites are on any area of skin exposed while sleeping. Also, the bites do not have a red spot in the center like flea bites do.
People who don't realize they have a bedbug infestation may attribute the itching and welts to other causes, such as mosquitoes. To confirm bedbug bites, you must find and identify the bugs themselves.
