The undersized nocturnal insects, also known as bed bugs have slowly made their way into becoming a popular infestation. Because of their small size, discrete color and ability to cling onto most things, they are easily carried around and spread from place to place.
Bed bugs are light brown, flat shaped insects. They usually live in small dark spaces within homes such as between couches, along the seams of pillows and of course where they get their name; in people’s beds. They feed off of the blood of humans at night while they’re sleeping and more times than none, duplicate multiple times before they are discovered. When revealed, they have more than likely infested not only the area you’ve found them in, but your whole house.
A thorough examination of headboards should always be conducted to ensure no signs of bed bugs, for this is a common hiding place for them. The outsides especially of sheets, blankets and mattresses should be pulled off of the bed and inspected. Small crevices, holes in walls or anywhere small and dark should also be checked out for these pests.
If you are unsure or wary of getting bed bugs on your own, there are always professional extermination companies that could help. The inside and outside of your house should be thoroughly cleaned to ensure bed bugs aren’t traveling from one place to another. A simple solution for getting rid of these pests is simply spraying rubbing alcohol all over bedding, clothing and anywhere bed bugs are suspected. This easily gets rid of the bed bugs and any eggs that are going to be potentially hatched.
