Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite! This phrase is sometimes shared when someone is going to bed, and it is true that you need to avoid bed bug bites when you are asleep. In recent years, bed bugs have become more common, and it is important that you are familiar with the cleanup techniques that should be used if you accidentally pick up a bed bug infestation.

Eliminate Bed BugsHow do Bed Bugs Get into Your Home?

Bed bugs are small insects that like to nest in bedding and other types of fabric. They will lay eggs in the area where they are living, and can quickly reproduce. If you spend time in a home or hotel that has a bed bug problem, then it is possible that the bugs could be transported to your home on your clothes or your furniture.

Many times, people don’t notice the insects, because these bugs are tiny. They might be hidden between the mattresses, and then come out at night when you are sleeping.

Controlling a Bed Bug Problem

If you notice that you are getting small bites on your skin during the night, then it is possible that you have a bed bug problem. Another indication is that there are blood spots or streaks on the sheets down by your feet.

Look closely at your bedding and sheets with a flashlight to see if you see the blood spatters. Check between the mattresses, in crevices, and near the bed frame, because these are all locations where the bed bugs might hide.

You might consider placing sticky traps near the base of your bed. These traps can capture insects that are in your room, helping to identify the type of infestation problem that needs to be eliminated. These traps can be given to a pest control expert so that they can identify the pest to find the best way to eliminate the problem.
