Keeping Bedbugs Away from Your Home

Finding out you have pests at home be can alarming and difficult to address even if we see them easily running from one corner to another, so imagine the idea of having tiny, obscure pests that are well hidden in your favorite sofa or your comfy bed where you sleep every night. This is typically the scenario with the tiny pests in your bed called bedbugs, for obvious reasons, as they are so small in size and usually only come out night in the dark which makes them all the more difficult to see, meaning you cannot easily address them until you see them with your own eyes.

Their tiny size can easily make them nearly invisible especially if you do not look close enough, as identifying bedbugs will also need a little knowledge and awareness to know what you need to look for. Most of the times, bedbugs do not cause noticeable problems, but there are people, especially those with existing allergies of some sort, who are more sensitive and can easily develop rashes from the bites, which appear in clusters and often becomes tiny blisters that itches a lot.

People also mostly think that like common pests, bedbugs can only live in untidy places, but the truth is bedbugs can live even in immaculate homes as they only need blood from humans or animals in order to thrive and multiply. Most people are not aware that bedbugs are usually transferred from an unknowingly infested location like hotels, other homes or furniture shops, where you lay out your belongings that they can crawl into then transfer to your own bed and furniture once you return with them home.

If you go back home with such items or have bought any second hand furniture or other similar items, make sure to thoroughly clean and disinfect them first before you use them inside your home. Another effective method is by putting such items into a vacuumed up bag and seal it tightly to make sure there will be no air inside for at least a day or two to suffocate them, which you must also do when you have other belongings or items at home that could have bedbugs too.

Equipping yourself with a little knowledge will also help you in the proper detection of bedbugs, especially in terms of the appearance of the bugs (brown, oval, and flat) and the eggs they lay, its hatched shells, including their droppings, which are all also tiny and require a close inspection. If you still find yourself unsure about what to do, there are reliable pest management services that you can hire to do the job for you and save you from all the hassle of detecting and killing bedbugs, including making your home bedbug proof.
