What Are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are a very small red-brown nocturnal feeding insect that feeds exclusively on blood. They don't have wings and hide in bedding and crevices during the day. They are about 3 to 7 mm in length and have flat oval bodies. They bite in your neck, arms, the face and hands and all areas that are exposed.
These pests are found in bird nests, where sanitation conditions are pitiful and even in clean environments. They can live indoors and outdoors. Indoors they are found in beds, cracks, textile, curtains, furniture, and box springs.
How Do You Treat Bed Bugs Bites?
The area they bite may turn red, itch and/or swell. Bed bug bumps can be treated with creams, oatmeal baths, cool compresses, and antihistamine.
The bumps will be visible after about two weeks. It is highly recommended not to scratch the red sensitive areas, because scratching will cause an infection. When you notice dead bugs, egg shells, fecal, bed bug blood( has the color of rust), a musty smell, dark spots in cracks, or on your bed sheets, or other textile, there is a bed bug infestation. It is very important to inspect your house for bed bugs.
How Do You Inspect For Bed Bugs?
Check your mattress and box springs. It is important to pay close attention to tufts along the edges, and rips especially at the bottom of the mattress. It is also necessary to inspect all crevices, and seams from your bed frame. If you have things like pictures or wallpaper remove them if necessary or check behind them.
If you find dead bugs or their egg shells, thoroughly inspect that area/room, and adjoining rooms.
