Pittsburgh Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs depend on human or animal blood to survive. Bed bugs don't care whether a home is clean or dirty and these tiny insects will make their home in furnishings, bedding, mattresses, and beds, making getting a good night's sleep difficult for anyone experiencing an infestation. They feed as people sleep and as a result, you may not always find it easy to tell that you have a bed bug infestation.
How do I tell if I have a bed bug infestation?
Contrary to what you may believe, you don't necessarily have to be suffering from frequent itching or scratching to know that you have bed bugs in your home, although suffering from these bites is definitely one indicator. There are many other signs that may go unnoticed until the bed bugs have caused a large-scale infestation.
Signs you may have a bed bug infestation:
- Brown or red dots on sheets and mattresses
- Itchy, red bites on the skin, usually found in groups of three
- Offensive, musty odor from the point of infestation
- Shed exoskeletons/bed bug shells
- Seeing one or more bed bug
How do I get rid of bed bugs?
Remember, there is not much that you can do on your own to remove a bed bug infestation. These bugs multiply rapidly. A single female bedbug can lay as many as 500 eggs in her lifetime. A typical bed bug can actually live for more than 300 days. Within no time at all, you could be looking at a major infestation that spreads throughout your home.
