What Are Bedbugs?

bedbugsBedbugs are tiny, wingless insects that feed on the blood of animals and people. They are named bedbugs because they are typically found in mattresses and bedding. While they don’t spread any actual diseases, they can cause severe itching and allergic reactions in people.

What Are the Signs I Have Bedbugs in My Home?

The most common sign of bedbugs is red, itchy bumps on your skin. You may find these bites in small clusters or straight rows around your arms and shoulders or on other parts of your body. Other signs include fecal stains on your bed sheets or walls, as well as a musty odor caused by the release of pheromones.

How Do They Spread?

Bedbugs are most commonly spread by mattress, bedding, luggage, and suitcases, as they hide in the seams and folds. To prevent them from spreading, it’s important to remove any trace of them in your home. You will need to vacuum every inch and crevice of your furnishings, throw out all of your bedding, and change the vacuum bag after each use.
