Bedbug Bites

With the news being flooded about the rise of bed bugs in cities across the United States most Americans are still "wondering what do bed bug bites look like?" and "how can they be treated?". Bed bugs are becoming more common in the United States, and bed bug infestations have been escalating since about 1995.


Somehow bed bugs were apparently common until the 1940s, when synthetic pesticides like DDT were introduced. Common theories as to their resurgence suggest that the cause is a lack of natural predators and species-wide resistance to several classes of pesticides.


             

Bed bugs are subtle nocturnal feeders that hide in bedding, mattresses/box springs, and furniture. They puncture the skin of their victims and feed on their blood. Such as mosquitoes and lice, their saliva contains proteins that anticoagulate blood and cause local allergic reactions. The bites themselves resemble small red spider bites that itch.


Here’s where the Technology takes over:

These annoying little critters may bite under loose fitting clothing. They leave behind bites may also occasionally flare up and resemble the lesions of an allergic reaction. Bed bugs do not spread human disease. Hep-B, hep-C, and HIV have all been looked at for transmission by bed bugs, no real evidence has been found for transmission.

Bed bug bites are usually last from 3 to 10 days, but if they are irritated and the skin is scratched it may result in scarring. Best to use are topical antihistamines, oral antihistamines also work but they take longer to work.


           

Best advice is not to attempt to fix a bed bug infestation in your homes by yourselves. If you think you may have an infestation of bed bugs, you should contact a pest control specialist. This is not a type of pest that can be treated and controlled with do-it-yourself measures. Over the counter pesticides are not effective on bed bugs. The pesticides that do work are too strong for an untrained person to use on their own as it may be misused and may harm them or their environment.


 
However there are some precautions that may help prevent a bed bug infestations in your home:

  • 1. Check all of your second-hand furniture, your beds and couches for any signs of an infestation before bringing them into your home
  • 2. Use a mattress cover for all of your mattresses and box springs. This will eliminate all of the hiding places for these little buggers.
  • 3. Reduce all clutter in your bedroom, this also reduces hiding spots for all bugs
 
Tips for when you're traveling:
  • 1. Always use the luggage racks for your luggage for when your packing and unpacking.
  • 2. Do a quick inspection yourself of the bed and headboard before going to sleep.
  • 3. When you return from your trip, you should unpack your clothing directly into the dryer for 35- 40 mins as there are no bugs that will sustain such heat. Also do a quick inspection of your luggage before putting it away.

If you still require a dog we own a face licking Yorkie named Danee to play with you to keep u busy while we do our inspection.
