Do you suspect that you have bed bugs? Bed bugs are small oval insects that thrive off of blood and body heat. They generally live in dark spaces, typically mattresses, box springs, inside bed frames. Bedbugs choose these places because it is the quickest way for getting to you if you have a bed bug problem!
Although not impossible, once bedbugs enter a living space, it can be a fairly difficult task to get rid of them. They spawn and multiply quickly. A full grown adult sized bedbug can be about the size of an apple seed. Fortunately they aren’t known to spread diseases but they can be a real nuisance and a health hazard. Once they feed, they won’t need to feed again for days.
Bed bugs are creatures of habit, and will feed on a regular schedule and target exposed areas while you sleep. Areas that become bitten will become quite itchy and excessive scratching may be a risk to a secondary skin infection. For those who have a bed bug infestation, they may suffer from insomnia, lack of sleep, anxiety, stress, and itchiness due to bites.
