Bed Bugs

We probably all have heard and maybe even used the phrase: "Good night; don't let the bed bugs bite!" You may also think that these critters are long extinct and we don't have them any longer.

Sorry to burst your bubble; they are not only more common then you would suspect, their numbers and infestations are rising as well. It turns out that bed bugs are masters in traveling as stowaways in luggage and are brought home from vacation and summer camps.

These 'buggers' are about 3/16 of an inch long and do not just hide in the seams of your mattress or the crevices of sheets and comforters, but also make themselves at home behind loose wallpaper and many other places which makes them so difficult to detect. Lately they are found more and more in bed-and-breakfasts, motels and hotels around the world.

A Bed Bug bite can cause itching and sometimes even red welts or swelling, but by the time this manifests itself, it probably already has been several days ago since they drew blood. The bites will usually disappear by themselves within a few days.

Whether you do or don't have bed bugs is not a matter of hygiene; they will feel right at home anywhere. Due to the increasing numbers and the fact that they are able to hide so well, they are also taking over offices. No, you don't have to put them on your payroll, but they put you on their menu for sure!

To know if you are dealing with these critters, check the sheets. Little red spots or black stains may be an indication of these creepy crawlers. Bed bugs do not transmit diseases, they just are what they are: pesky, irritating bugs. The only and most effective way to get rid of these little blood suckers is by hiring an exterminator.

Have a great day and as for later: good night, don't let the bed bugs bite!
