Get Rid of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are small bug, 1/4″ with a broad, flat, oval body shape. They get their name because they are most commonly found in beds but they can be discovered in any place where people often visit or spend much of their time. Including couches and hotels.
These annoying pests feed on blood of humans and other warm-blooded animals. Humans are often the victim because we have exposed skin whereas many animals are covered with fur, making it harder for the bug to feed.
They bite you and inject your skin with their saliva which numbs the skin so you often don’t feel them attacking you in your sleep. While these pests do not carry disease, they can leave your body covered with red, itchy spots.
They often nest in the creases of mattresses and holes or cracks in bed frames. Some people will notice fecal waste or blood on their sheets which is one of the many signs of their presence.
