4 Bed Bugs Facts You Didn’t Know Before

4-bed-bugs-facts-didnt-knowBed bugs are common pests that are found globally. No matter, how much cold or hot it is outside, bugs remain active throughout the year. Once they infest your home, their number will keep on increasing unless you get them removed professionally. Bed bugs are nocturnal pests that remain active at night and attack humans with their bites. If you wake up having rashes over your body, you might have fallen victim to an unwanted bed bug infestation. Some strange facts about these bugs include:

  • Bed bugs are visible: Though most of the people might have complained that they have never seen bed bugs with naked eyes, in reality, you can easily spot them by looking carefully. Adult bed bugs are reddish-brown in color with a flat and oval shaped body whereas younger ones are yellowish and extremely small.
  • They can be anywhere: Most of the people believe that bed bugs only infest a bedding or mattress. But in reality, they are found everywhere i.e. on the walls, furniture, clothes, electric sockets, luggage and all other places. Every time you step out a foot out of your home, keep yourself safe from pesky bed bugs.
  • Bed bugs are hitchhikers: Unlike all other pests, bed bugs are excellent hitchhikers which make them capable of traveling almost anywhere. Though they cannot fly or jump, they sit peacefully on your belongings like luggage and clothes to infest a place that has not been infested yet.
  • Heat kills bed bugs: With excessive use of pesticides and sprays, the bugs have become resistant to all control methods other than using heat remediation. If you are looking for an effective and long lasting treatment, opt for heat treatment to kill bed bugs. These pests find it hard to survive in excessive heat and ultimately die.

These were some of the lesser known facts about bed bugs that you must be aware of. If you think bed bugs might have infested your home, feel free to contact our pest exterminators at Econo Pest.
