Bed bugs love travelling just like you do. So if you’re travelling for a New Year Party or trip, there’s a high chance they’re coming home with you.
As the new year fell on the weekend, many of us planned to celebrate the occasion while traveling to some exciting places. However, there are high possibilities that we did not return to our homes alone. A few unwelcome guests may self-invite themselves and think of paying a visit to our home. By unwanted guests, we mean human bloodsuckers – BED BUGS! Although bed bugs pest control services will cover you, identifying their infestation in the initial days could be a bit tricky.
Before you start looking for endless solutions to resolve the problem of bed bug infestation, it is essential to understand how they enter your domain in the first place. Well, there could be possibly two ways by which they can start their journey to invade your home. The first being is home-to-home and the second is person-to-person.
Now, here, in the case of home-to-home, the primary reason for bed bug infestation is because your neighbors’ property is not bedbug-free. Not much to your surprise, bed bugs don’t have wings, so flying from your neighbor’s home to yours is not possible for them. However, they crawl quickly. To invade your home, they don’t need to come in an army, three-four pairs of bed bugs are enough to give you a real hard time. If left untreated, they breed and multiply in a good number within a short period of time.
Now, let’s discuss the second case, which is person-to-person. Though bed bugs are quite small, they can’t stay on a person’s body for the whole time without being noticed. However, they are often up for a picnic. By hanging onto your clothes and other stuff such as a carry bag or laptop bag, they can join you for the ride.
Later, with their exceptional crawling skills, they find their way to get into others’ stuff. That’s how they spread from one person to another.
If your neighbor claims that their home is not infested by these irritating insects, the second case, person-to-person, makes sense why you are suspecting that these unwelcome guests have turned your space into a hotspot.
To confirm the infestation, here are a few signs you should look out before calling professional bed bug services. The most common signs of the bed bugs infestation include:
Seeing them crawling at your place live (Well, if this happens, not it down, the infestation is severe.)
Unexplained reddish stains on your bedsheets, pillows, or mattress (which may be crushed bed bugs)
Unusual dark spots (about the size of a poppy seed) on your sheets, pillows, or mattress (which may be bed bug excrement)
Tiny bed bug eggs or eggshells on the corners of your bedsheets, mattress, and bed frame
If there are small yellow skins.These could be the exoskeletons bed bugs shed as they grow.
A musty odor near your bed
However, the bed bug infestation can be avoided with a few preventative measures. With a little effort and smart work you can restrict their entry in your home. Try the below-listed tips and tricks:
