Bed bugs can leave bites that look like they came from a spider. Even worse, they can attack, and when they do, it happens at night when you are in a deep sleep!
These little bugs have it down to a science; first, they inject you with a numbing solution, then they start to suck your blood using their mouth-parts. If you move around a lot when sleeping, you may cause the bed bug to move and feed on another part of your body. When there are more than 1 of these bugs, say 20, they can do a lot of damage to your skin.
So how do you tell if your bite is from a bed bug? This website shows you what bed bugs look like, what their bites look like, and most importantly, how to get rid of bed bugs.
So where do they come from?
The #1 place to pick up bed bugs is in a hotel, and all hotels, no matter how great they are, can get bed bugs. What makes one hotel better than the other is preventative measures such as an integrated pest management system. The last thing a hotel wants is a lawsuit for failing to act on a reported infestation.
Are you worried about spending the night at a hotel? Make sure to check your bed BEFORE you falling asleep! Check for eggs (they look like rice), ink-like stains on the mattress (that’s their feces), and all stages of the bed bug’s development.
Can I Do It Myself?
Many pest control companies will tell you that home treatment does not work, but that IS NOT true. The reason behind most home treatments is a lack of persistence! It is a long process, but if you stick with it, you can do it yourself.
