Get-Rid-Of-Bed-Bugs

Bed Bugs have a long history dating as far back as ancient Egypt. There was a successful eradication attempt in the developed world by the 1950s. Unfortunately, there has been a resurgence of Bed Bugs. Increased international travel and the lack of awareness have contributed to a rebirth.


Bed Bugs are parasites, and they feed on the blood of humans and other animals. They are found in mattresses, box springs, headboards, on walls, clothing, and bedding. They are tiny in size, ranging from one mm to seven mm. This makes it very easy for them to hide in these spots, and they most often feed when we are asleep. These nasty creatures are very stubborn, and they can survive very harsh conditions. They can jump from one spot to another and can survive for months without feeding.


Problems that could arise from Bed Bug Infestation 

When Bed Bugs bite you, they will often leave marks on your skin. These bites can be uncomfortable, unpleasant and lead to serious health issues. Bed Bugs can also cause mental stress. People with Bed Bug bites get post-traumatic stress disorder. You could develop clinical conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, depression, or paranoia.


Bed Bugs have transmitted diseases such as Chagas disease. This was discovered by research conducted by Penn Medicine .


What do the Stats Say?

The National Pest Management Association says that 90% of Bed Bugs are found in homes. Hotels and guest houses accounted for 70%. They are the most frequented spots for travelers.

  

What Makes it Difficult to deal with Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs have become resistant to most pesticides available. They also withstand standard pest-elimination procedures. They have a long gestation period (7 weeks for the development of eggs into adult bugs). It could take as much as two months for you to notice any infestation. Bed Bugs can easily hide in small spots before they are noticeable. When they bite, they inject an anesthetic, which would prevent you from feeling the pain of the bite.


The Center for Disease Control has labeled Bed Bugs a rising public health issue. This is due to its increased prevalence.


How to Recognize Bed Bug Infestation

The bite marks, which are usually reddish, are the most obvious way to suspect a Bed Bug attack. They occur on the exposed parts of your body, usually on your hands, face, arms, and legs. If you notice rust-looking blood spots or a sweet, musty scent, then you may have a Bed Bug infestation.
