Bed Bug problems are a huge problem in the United States. Millions of Americans have been bitten by bed bug bites, or have seen a bed bug in the house. The unsightly bites that result can be extremely unpleasant. Many people may not know a bed bug’s appearance until they have an incident. In order to understand what to look for and how to deal with these nasty pests, it is essential to be armed with information about bed bug bites so that you can act quickly to stop them in their tracks.
Can Bed Bug Seen?
Bed bugs have become a persistent problem because they are extremely difficult to detect. Most bed bug infestations are actually not correctly detected by naked eyes. Bed bugs are small insects that are nearly impossible to see with the human eye. Bed bug bites don’t leave very noticeable red marks on the skin. However, a bed bug bite can leave a reddened area of itching – and this is where bed bug infestations commonly occur.
In addition to bed bug eggs, bed bugs can leave behind bed bug feces. These waste products are very similar to the remnants of bed bugs that have been consumed. You should look for bed bug feces in and around your luggage in the hotel or other public accommodation where you may have stayed. This is a good indication that there may be bed bugs living within your luggage, and can help you determine whether you have been exposed to bed bugs while staying at a particular hotel.
How Do You Understand When You Get Bit By Bed Bug?
The telltale signs that bed bugs will leave behind are small, red bite marks. These are almost always located on the person’s leg – on the sole of the foot, or between the toes. Bed bite marks are also common in people who have recently been in contact with an infected person. Bed-bugs bite into the skin, not into the surrounding tissue. A bed bug bite will not leave any telltale marks on the surrounding skin surface, but it can still be difficult to detect if you aren’t careful.
To make sure you do not get bed bug bites, you can take some simple precautions. First, make sure you do not leave any food items on your luggage for more than a day. After leaving your luggage at the hotel, it’s a good idea to blow your nose gently and then immediately wash your hands in hot, clean, high heat hot water. After washing your hands in the hot water, use a clean cotton ball to dab the damp areas. Do this up to five times – each time blowing very hot air into the affected areas.
Bed Bug Sprays
If you find bed bugs in cracks and crevices, you should consider using a pest control service as soon as possible. Bed bugs usually live in humid environments, which means that the rooms you may have had problems with before could very likely be host to bed bugs if they have managed to penetrate the walls or floor cracks. If you find bed bugs crawling around inside your bedroom, you should turn on the air purifier in your room, as well as in your car – and, for the best protection, you should never go to bed in your car. Remember: bed bugs can only travel via human blood.
If you find bed bugs in bed linens, you may also want to consider using a bed bug spray or pesticide. If you’re looking to buy a bed bug spray, be sure to look for one specifically labeled for bed bugs. A reputable pest control service should be able to recommend one for you based on your specific circumstances. Some pesticides can be harmful to you and your family, especially if you have children, so be careful about which ones you choose to spray. The safest option is to try and eradicate the problem yourself by using an insecticide – a high-quality product that targets adult insects and not the larvae (which feed on the blood of the host) of the bed bug.
How to Ged Rid of Bed Bugs
If, after you have sprayed a pesticide on the bugs, you still see them, you should call a pest control company as soon as possible to prevent any other bed bugs from reproducing. It is possible for a single bug to lay hundreds of eggs at once, so if it’s not quickly removed, the infestation can become serious. For temporary solutions like bed bug bites, you can use antihistamines or over-the-counter decongestants to reduce the swelling and itching. You should never touch a bed bug bite, as it could transfer the disease from the bug to you or your children. For long-term and permanent treatment, it’s best to contact a pest management professional who can use bed bug treatments that are safe for both you and your family.
